Steve Van Zandt says Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder are the future of rock

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.

Asked on Twitter about what he thinks about Dave Grohl, Zandt was thrilled. He said that alongside Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) and Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day), the Foo Fighters leader is giving us “hope” about the future of rock.

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.
