Either way, Detroit’s rock music has lost its power due to a host of cultural changes. Here’s a scene that was once a warm bed for new musical talent who created an entire industry. There was a lot of talk about Iggy Pop (yes, he went to Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor) and MC5 (I heard there was another documentary in the work), and recently “White Stripes” attracted a lot of attention. I am very grateful to Jack White for saving rock radio in the 90s. It’s really so dark.
On April 8, 2010, I received the depressing news. Punk rock pioneer Malcolm McLaren has died in New York At the age of 64. Only this crowd has created one of the most destructive and intriguing trends in art in modern history. Behind him were a couple of great characters, including Sid Vicious, Catwoman, Sex Pistols, Johnny Rotten, and in short, they created a revolution. Detroit has this trend when you look at Motown Sound. We also have giants who walked our streets, such as Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and David Ruffin. These individuals have shaped an entire industry.
Recently, these rumors about the revolution have stopped. The streets of Detroit are a little bare compared to the past. If you have a band, it is best to sell your own tickets to bring people to concerts. What happened in Detroit is sad. We have been given a lot of tribute bands, paying homage to Led zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Bob Segar, which is very strange for me. What is even more disturbing is that people of my generation have paid less attention to rock music and pop culture in favor of depressing and fast projects. It’s just disgusting.
If Detroit ever stands for anything other than the automotive or developing film industry, we need to rethink the music situation. We need more original rooms and seats that don’t distract potential viewers. It will be difficult to maintain a lasting effect when dealing with the music industry, which once forced us to waste. Music is energy, it’s an art form, and it’s a must-have industry in Detroit.
Detroit needs to be mindful of continuing to do what it did best: innovate. This is what made the city famous, culturally significant and, above all, strong in nature. This is something that is so exciting in life in the Detroit Metro area, especially at this time of economic crisis. This whole region is about to explode with creativity. If you look closely, it’s already happening.
