ROGER DALTREY from THE WHO recently performed at ‘Oldchella,’ and he says it reminds him of how rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t exist like it used to, and how its spirit has been replaced by rap music.
He told the “Times” of London, quote, “The sadness for me is that rock has reached a dead end . . . the only people saying things that matter are the rappers and most pop is meaningless and forgettable.
“You watch these people and you can’t remember a bloody thing.” He didn’t elaborate on that . . . so it’s unclear who he thinks is carrying the torch in the rap game.
Speaking of old rockers and rappers, DAVID CROSBY is NOT a fan of KANYE WEST. David was on “Watch What Happens Live” a few nights ago, and he said, quote, “He can neither sing, nor write, nor play . . .
“The thing that bugs be about him is the ‘I’m the world’s greatest living rock star’ [attitude]. Somebody needs to drive him over to Stevie Wonder’s house right now so he understands what a real one is. Secondly, they should send him all of Ray Charles’ catalog so he learns how to sing.”
Here’s Dvid on all of this –
