The Best That I Could Do 1978-1988 album at

All of a sudden there was a new Woody Guthrie named Bob Dylan, and the Beatles showed up. When all the music started coming over from England and we discovered Dylan and Joan Baez, it really meant something: It spoke for our generation was - unlike the music today that speaks for NOTHING, that means less than zero - that's just another game on your computer. The Justin Timberlakes of today might just as well be another cartoon show! Me, too. Just another fucking cartoon show. A distraction. But it wasn't like that in 1968, '69, '70 - when music spoke to who we were, what our generation was, our DREAMS. But we've been the worst generation: We couldn't get marijuana legalized! We've been rotten at everything - and haven't fulfilled our dreams or legacy. (Editor's note: John Mellencamp dropped the "Cougar" from his name long ago.)
