    Dad Rock and Child's Play

    Dr. Jacqueline Warwick​​ - Fountain School of Performing Arts

    In the mid-twentieth century, rock’n’roll represented a generational break, with young people choosing music that their parents loathed. 

    The recent rise in child stars who rock out note-perfect versions of Van Halen guitar solos and Keith Moon drum fills indicates that rock songs are being passed down to children by their parents, so that rock music has a very different role in family values. 

    What does “dad rock” offer to modern family life?​
