THE RISE OF ROCK'N'ROLL IS 2012!
Brent Smith, singer of the rising Rockband Shinedown said at the beginning of the year that 2012 will be the rise of rock music. He told the fans of rock'n'roll to help making clear that rock'n'roll will never die 'cause rock'n'roll is a way of life.
Now, a half year later, I happily see that Brent was right. This year, rock music is on the rise; it's proving that it's not dead!
For me personally, it's the number of concerts I visit this year and albums coming out this year that is proof for me that rock'n'roll is rising.
Here's a small list of rock musicians that helped making rock music huge again:
Shinedown concert 02-05-12 in Cologne (with Halestorm)
Shinedown album 'Amaryllis' 03-23-12
Halestorm album 'The Strange Case Of...'
Halestorm concert 10-03-12 in Cologne
Billy Talent album 'Viking Deathmarsh' (October)
Billy Talent concert 10-10-12 in Munster
Nickelback concert 09-21-12 in Cologne (with Daughtry)
Shinedown concert 10-20-12 in Cologne
Three Days Grace album 'Transit of Venus' 10-02-12
and I'm sure that this is just the beginning!
