yesterday vs today

What do you make of old timers, including a few composers, who denounce today's music?

I ask how can you ignore the wide variety of music you hear today? How can you not enjoy the work of some of our finest composers whose music may last for decades? Of course there is a lot of bad music but there was bad music in the past too. I do not believe that just because someone is 80, the person is full of wisdom. Sometimes a 10-year-old person can have more wisdom than a person in the 70s or 80s.

i totally agree.. just being old doesnt mean what the person knows is correct.
