"Rock" by Parker Kaufman
I am a huge fan of classic rock music. Having grown up in the 1960's, experiencing the change when the Beatle's stormed America, I find limitless inspiration in the music as well as the song lyrics of that decade. As the music world continues to evolve, new styles of music, a different outlook in lyrics, ideas for new art remain infinite in number. As with art, music speaks of it's time, one that is past, but will always live on.
Above, "Rock" is an homage to musicians who I feel were at the turning point of popular music. It also symbolizes, in a way, the death of a genre of music and the ushering in of a new one.
