Much is discussed about the future of rock. While many say that the style has died, others know that the scenes are still effervescent around the world.
Who also gave his opinion on the subject was the musician Stevie Van Zandt, that plays in the E Street Band, support band of the master Bruce Springsteen.
I feel we’re lucky to have him. It is he and the Foo Fighters, Billie Joe Armstrong/Green Day, Eddie Vedder/Pearl Jam, among others, that give us hope for the future. Along with upcomers Kurt Baker, Palmyra Delran, Ryan Hamilton, Kris Rodgers, Brian Ray, Soraia, Wyldlife, etc. https://t.co/hVPDHWBr8Z

He also added that new artists such as Kurt Baker, Palmyra Delran, Ryan Hamilton, Kris Rodgers, Brian Ray, Soraia and Wyldlife are also collaborating to keep the style alive.
