Rock 'N' Spirituality

June 14, 1987

What are you trying to tell us: why rock isn't fun anymore?

I'll tell you what's a sin: The way good, new bands are having their excitement bled off and held captive somehow.

As the neo-fascist groove thang's big, big beat boom booms over us all, ego is everything: Prince's ego, Michael Jackson's ego, Springsteen's ego, Madonna's ego.

I'm tired of hearing about lists. I'm tired of hearing about how separate religion and rock once were. I'm tired of hearing about Prince's latest, invariably white, discovery. I'm tired of hearing about Michael Jackson's latest corpse. I'm tired of hearing about Springsteen's latest lyrical encapsulation of the world. I'm tired of hearing about Madonna's latest tiff.

I want to rock.

I want excitement.

I want a scene.
