In reply to:

In the ageist ambiance of rock, relevance tends to be measured in the ongoing impact of an artist on youth. If that's the yardstick, then there's little doubt in my mind that Bowie's relevance outstrips that of Morrissey by leagues.



There's no doubt that Bowie's work in the 70s has had a huge impact in shaping numerous musical acts but what do you think the impact of his current work will be in, say, ten years' time? How many bands are going to be inspired by the sounds of 'hours...' or Reality?

In reply to:

I'll never forget the shock of talking to a group of teenagers a few years ago (friends of my son) about music, when I mentioned Morrissey and my son was the only one who had even heard of him!



Nice story but a bit beside the point. Still, at least they weren't listening to Linkin Park. But are you sure they have 6000 hours of music? Minutes, perhaps, or megabytes but surely not hours (unless you're talking collectively, in which case there's bound to be a lot of doubling anyway.
