      I know I’m going to sound like a grumpy old guy when I write this but… I sometimes feel it is a tad sad when younger music fans hear names like Jack Bruce and ask, “Who?”
      These are the icons who made rock music what it is today.
      That’s not to say that there are not icons in the making at this moment… but we music fans must remember to honour the icons of the past.
