MUSIC OF 2006: When the kids lost the music
I can't believe how inept and narrow-minded this article is in the "Japan Times."
"Young people aren't interested in music anymore, and it's having an effect on concert-ticket sales. The Rock In Japan Festival [which took place this year in August in Ibaraki Prefecture and attracted 47,000 fans per day over three days] might have sold out, but tickets for individual shows are on the decline. In short, I'm not optimistic about the future of music."
It's almost comical.
