I'm having a hard time believing you're significantly older than Tortuga, or me, or Vox.

I tried both of those. Sorry, I didn't care for the performances. I did like the guitarist's enthusiasm, though (maybe I'm supposed to know who he is but I don't).

Yeah, I like that.

My favorite non-album version is when they played it in Vancouver.

Most people seem to prefer the version they played on TV, forgot if it was Jimmy Kimmel or something else.

It's a great song; still holding up great for me.

Iím not trying to sell you on anything but I still feel really excited about music and since you obviously are a music fan I would like you to feel that too.  I find it easier than ever to discover new music.  I start with my longtime favorites and the streaming service I subscribe to is very good at suggesting new music I might like.  My friends and I hit the share button and send a text link whenever we hear something we like.  Never had that in the 90s.  All I could really know was what I heard on the radio and read about in Rolling Stone. Also there werenít alot of record stores near where I lived with a great selection so that was kind of limited in terms of discovering new music.

Would anyone here be interested in sharing e-mails so that we can share links to new music?  Probably should share through forum messaging, not in the thread.

Whatís died is the shared experience of hit music, and everything is so segmented that the variety sucks.

I donít have time to search for great music and the days of radio are numbered.

1987 was also a great music year but I also agree 1991 was amazing and I was also in High School so maybe itís also the reason.

Iím curious what ďthe death of rockĒ means to different people.  I feel that rock is far from death as I listen to alot of recent/current music I consider to be rock.  I feel like I have access to as much good rock music as I ever did.  The difference I see is that none of that is popular in the mainstream the way it used to be.  Is that what you guys mean when you say that rock is dead? 

I feel like its pretty common for any style of music to fall from the mainstream with the passing of generations.  Big Band and Western Swing were big in the 40s and 50s.  50s Rock n Roll was out by the time my generation was in high school.  The rock I grew up with has now been replaced in the mainstream by todayís urban or hip hop or whatever it is.  Is this all weíre talking about or is it something different?

Here she is covering the song in NYC a week or so ago, with Zane Carney on guitar:

They're currently during a short tour together around the US. They also performed the song last night in SF, but the sound quality of this video isn't very good and I don't think Evan sounded as good vocally on the song last night, compared to the earlier performance.

Still, an interesting cover! :)
