 Shocked
Yesterday I was in my car with my nephew (16 years old). I played a CD of one of my favorite bands ("Innuendo" by Queen). M. listened to the music for a while and then said: "Oh, that's really old stuff?" I answered "No, it isn't old stuff, it's Queen". "Ummh", he said, "it sounds really old.  Are they still alive?" - "Yes and no, Freddy Mercury died in 1991. The other band members are still alive" - "Because he was too old?" - "No, he died of AIDS, a serious disease" - "I didn't know. I think I heard of a Musical related to that Freddy Mercury. But I don't like musicals". Can we listen to another music?"
I turned the radio on...


I guess I'm really old. My nephew doesn't know the bands of my youth....
Perhaps because he only ever listens to "Top100" on Spotify?
I'm a bit shocked...

Maybe it can console you that my daughter has been a huge Queen and Beatles fan since she was like 12 (she's 21 now). So of course my other kids are also very familiar with it. Smiley

Some kids like older music, and others don't.  My friend's daughter is a freshman in college, and really likes Pat Benatar.  Her last big hit was in '86, I think.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I was so shocked because he didn't even KNOW the name of the band.  laugh

Well, I don't know how it is in Germany, but I can't remember the last time I heard Queen on the radio here in NJ/NYC
