Before the Music Dies

As interested as I was in seeing this, I had to make the difficult decision to take free tickets to Edward Scissorhands interpretive dance tonight. The first part of the trailer kind of rubs me the wrong way. It seems to be saying that if teenage girls listened to Bob Dylan instead of Ashlee Simpson that the music wouldn’t be in danger of dying. Teen idles and idols are part of the fabric of rock history and the past success of the music business, like, oh, Elvis and The Beatles? I’m not suggesting that Ashlee is Elvis or The Beatles. In a perfect world, her sales would probably fund all the future would-be Dylans on her label. The music is live and well; it’s the industry that chose death over evolution.
