Led Zepplin, the Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Rush, Pink Floyd, Peter Frampton, the Beatles, the Who, Elton John (but only the good stuff), the Rolling Stones these are the names that classic rock worships. But where are the values for which they fought, where is the spirit that they once epitomised? Persuasive, incisive, and drawing blood eith every keystroke, "I Hate New Music" is one man's crusade against everything that isn't what rock ought to be.Shamelssly retrospective and defiantly reactionary, "I Hate New Music" examines the sacred cows of the past 30 years - from U2 to the Days of the New, from Radiohead to Write Stripes - and then slaughters them for their sins against our souls. But this is no mere catalogue of claumkny. Classic rock is bigger than ever, and Thompson sees salvation around every corner and all across the radio dial. For this growing and passionate audience, Thompson has created an unputdownable compendium of outrageous opinion, hilarious anecdote, wild accusations (and the occasional palpable untruth). You have been warned.
