Rock of Aged

Friday, January 21, 2005

Rock & roll was once the music of rebellion and the currency of youth. Eventually, that youth grew up and became music critics. Today's critics of yesterday's bands might be accused of being driven more by sentimentality then by quality. But as WNYC's Brian Wise reports, concerns about nostalgia may be the least of the problems for aging rock critics, some of whom are losing their jobs for losing touch with what the kids want.
