The first 22 years of the twenty-first century have seen a major decline in the presence of rock bands and artists gracing the pop charts. This has led a lot of people to utter the statement; "rock is dead".
But is it? If it isn't where did it go? Where is all the great guitar-driven music that used to populate the charts and mainstream/corporate radio?
On this week's Loudini Rock & Roll Circus, Independence Day edition, we will do a deep dive into the state of rock in the third decade of the twenty-first century and answer the questions where is rock? Why did it disapear (for the most part ) from pop radio? Can it ever come back?

The day the music died (not the first time rock has "died")
The perfect storm that allowed rock to flourish
music business and audio technology business... are the same business i.e. RCA
Follow the leader..rock so called "Changing tastes" grunge rap & hip hop
MTV stops playing music videos
Enter "big tech"
high speed internet
"piracy ruined my band"
massive revenue dries up
the labels are too short sighted...or are they???
the wild west and the "democratization" of the music business
the Berlin wall
Music becomes cheap and easy
massive increase in concert ticket prices
the smart phone ...the giant step backwards
rock goes underground and it's EVERYWHERE!
what can we do to help rock survive and thrive
should we just let it go?
