    Whatever happened to Rock n Roll?

    There are so many subgenres now. Where did the root go?

    It died in a plane crash On February 3, 1959 along with : Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. "The Big Bopper".

    Updated answer:  it is just evolution, man.  Red-headed stepchildren sub-genres have driven real rock-n-roll underground.

    Rock n roll is just music, written and performed by artists, art and artists change, they don't live in the past and stagnate.

    like any invention or new idea, it evolves . rock and roll was the beginning, sort of like the parent of many types of modern music. the offspring(not the band) of rock and roll are like a parents kids. lots in common but different none the less.

    It died. A day or two after Kurt Cobain killed himself. Once in a while it resurfaces, but you have to keep your ear really close to the train tracks to hear it.

    Hey hey, My my, rock and roll will never die. It's better to burn out than fade away. My my, Hey hey!   If you think it's dead you ain't payin' attention!

    it came out of rhythm and blues, out of desperation and its that same desperation still exists today... it grew and evolved.  From Chuck Berry, to the Beatles, to Led Zeppelin to Rush to Nirvana, to the Foo Fighters to Disturbed..... Heavy Metal, soft rock, Pop... all of it has a parent..... It springs forth an energy to the soul... it speaks loudly so as to not be ignored... Is Rock dead?  Nope... sometimes hidden, it still will strive to answer the same desperation it was derived from.  One just has to keep their ears and heart open and you will find it.
