Where Are The New Legends?

I hear this question every now and again: “Where are the new legends?”

Good question. I don’t have the answer, but I would like to submit a few points to consider.

1. Sometimes it takes a good, long while before a legend is recognized as such.

2. We are a solid 10 years in to the digital age of music, and that means a lot of music is clogging the system. There is no longer an Ed Sullivan Show (for example), and that means reaching the masses is wholly different than it was even 20 years ago.

3. A “legend” can mean a lot of different things, to a lot of different people. We are quickly entering an era where the “household name” will rarely (if ever) happen.

It’s time to rethink “legend.”

  1. Completely agree, with so much music right at your finger tip, it is harder to even classify the “music feel” or definition of today. And by the way, I really really love your blog, some really cool stuff!

  2. Hey there, I really appreciate this comment. So sorry I’m just getting back to you on this one; I’m usually MUCH faster than this. Thanks for reading.
