That's it, Roberta!
Unfortunately, there aren't new bands as good as the oldies. And not only in rock n’ roll, but as in other music styles that were cooler in the past than nowadays, not at all but most part of it.
I do like bands from the 60’s till the 80’s and a few from the 90’s. But I was born in the late 80’s, so I couldn’t enjoy my favorite bands in their golden years. I always dreamed about it and for a long time I felt very sad to think that I couldn’t follow their steps. Now, I’m still a little sad for it, of course, it would be wonderful! But at least, everything was done for me when I found them out, and I really loved to know all those cool bands. And nowadays we have a very large access to everything about the bands. We have internet where we can download all kind of things and rarities from our favorite bands. We can buy a lot of a cool stuff in stores and even in internet, things that didn’t exist before.
So, fortunately, most of my favorite bands are still in the road. The Scorpions now are finishing their career, it is very sad for all of us but we’ll keep loving them forever. I couldn’t see many shows, only 3, but they were incredibly nice and unforgettable. Last time, for example, I took Klaus a drawing of him that I made myself during the show. In the back, I wrote a letter for them and for my luck, I got to know that he read it after the show. I also took a drumstick and took nice pictures because I was in the barrier, a great reward to have waited so many hours outside in the row.
Another good part is that they always play many older hits. The Iron Maiden, for example, made a special tour playing only in their early hits. It was amazing! The vocalist Bruce Dickinson said in an interview that as the years were going by, they were getting younger fans, and that’s true. If you stop and think of it, most part of the people in the shows are about 16 to 25. So their intention was to give these young fans an opportunity to enjoy a show like one from the golden years.
I am happy for all the things I did as fan, all the places I’ve been to see a show, they weren’t many, but I am still very glad. All I wish is to keep loving them all, and if some of them think it is time to stop, then I’ll nicely accept this with the certain that they were always wonderfully nice and with the pride to be their fan.
If the Scorpions are still on, I'm complete, if I keep them in my heart, then I'll be eternalwww.scorpionsbrazil.net/
