Part II – Music:
“Respect your elders.”
This is a notion far too often misinterpreted.  Respect for your elders does not simple mean respect the past, respect what is old, and what has simply existed before you.  What was supposed to be said here was: “Respect the wise.”

A lot of old people are wise.

But, a lot of old people are batshit insane, bigoted, deranged, mentally ill, and completely fucking worthless.

Both these statements are true of old bands.

Respect the founders who shaped the music you listen to today.  Respect Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Buddy Rich, Robert Johnson ect… but even the greats can’t be accepted fully.  Don’t just eat what they feed you.  Only respect what is actually good. (more…)
