    Actually there are some youngsters that are making real good music. John Mayer and even locals such as Dan Patlansky and Rowan Stuart. The difference is they are masters at their instruments and have done an "apprenticeship" in their art.

    Most modern music (electronic music) you listen to once and then forget it. Go to any music store and look at the stock of hip hop or rap. Nobody buys it, so the music stores stock rock and classic music. That is what people listen to in the long run.

    Yeah! Some heavy metal tend to be a bit noisy, but classics like this have staying power.

    Why? Because they can actually play instruments and most of them can read music. Like classical music they have variation in speed and volume. Hard, soft, slow fast and alternating vocals and instruments. Their lyrics actually say something and some have the most beautiful poetry.

    Not the doef, doef repetitive taxi music you hear on the radio today.

    I always enjoy live music as there is an interaction between musician and audience. One can also appreciate virtuosity if they can play an instrument well, whether it be a violin, flute or rock guitar.

    I therefore try my best to attend live performances and keep an open mind to experience new talent. We do not have to follow the rap crap trends from abroad.

    Support your local artists!

    In the late sixties and early seventies they used to have the Battle of the Bands in Cape Town. In '69/'70 they had a 24 hr rock concert at Hartleyvale stadium with all the top bands and 1 or 2 British acts. This was just after we saw the movie of the Woodstock festival, so everyone was in the spirit.

    Bands included Hawk, Freedom's Children, McCully Workshop, Ballyhoo.... awesome stuff right through the night.

    I do not attend shows by has been's that come to SA, but Elton John was very professional and Robbie Williams rocked! Not quite live, but The Rolling Stones at Imax was a highlight.

    "Come take my hand
    You should know me
    I've always been in your mind
    You know that I'll be kind
    I'll be guiding you

    Building your dream
    Has to start now
    There's no other road to take
    You won't make a mistake
    I'll be guiding you

    You have to believe we are magic
    Nothin' can stand in our way
    You have to believe we are magic
    Don't let your aim ever stray
    And if all your hopes survive
    Your destiny will arrive
    I'll bring all your dreams alive
    For you

    From where I stand
    You are home free
    The planets align so rare
    There's promise in the air
    And I'm guiding you

    Through every turn I'll be near you
    I'll come anytime you call
    I'll catch you when you fall
    I'll be guiding you

    You have to believe we are magic
    Nothin' can stand in our way
    You have to believe we are magic
    Don't let your aim ever stray
    And if all your hopes survive
    Your destiny will arrive
    I'll bring all your dreams alive
    For you" Olivia Newton John
