hello hakerdefo and everyone 
glad You liked the Roy Orbison mention.  can you appreciate Chet Atkins. 
Candlebox one of the last great rock sounds. American country music genre has more rock now than other genres.  Does St.Vincent count? Thoughts of rock bands date back over fifty years. David Byrne and Fred Schneider and Dan Hicks and Ella Fitzgerald carried-on as we shared listening with Gershwin and Piazzolla while Rush, Focus, Markusfeld, PFM Cook, Kraftwerk straddle the argument.  How far back are we to go? to the Doobie Bros. or Johnny Winter and Edgar Winter or the Allman Bros. or the Mills Bros.?  The Marx Bros. each played an instrument.  Remember that  The blues had a baby and they called it rock and roll; that takes us way back to where some listeners got lost on staying with the blues when rock forked.  We who like it all still lump the funk together without sorting out the rock [or its country of origin. RoyOrbison did a British-American collaboration without bias.]  Maybe i was paying to see SonnyTerry and BrownieMcGhee or Basia when i could have been growing the economics of American rock bands. Regionalizing sound for popularity must have worked to fracture the market in America where each city, each hotel, dining hall, and stage competed for a different sound; not the same sound. America had more television variety than Britain?  Hollywood was the target though they learned to do it themselves.  Hollywood was more diversity and spreading-out thinly.  We despaired for more rock in the seventies/ eighties and turned to "import" albums in the record bins or local musicians like Carlos Santana and Les Dudek and Pantera.  How many musicians in Brand X were American?  Jazz musicians flowing into NewYork were more interesting than much of the rock music.   America had Boston and Kansas while AlanParsons Project, Supertramp flooded the charts. Jon Anderson is a favorite. Maybe it is because the British stuff is just really good.  LoneStar was better than LedZeppelin, but you didn't hear about LoneStar. The shocking thing is to look up a old name like 10,00 maniacs, MoseAllison, steelyDan , Jose Feliciano, etc. and find they are still in music.  Local music is where to find rock now. After a life of performing rock drums or harmonica there are links online to older accomplished and decorated musicians still performing.  Fresh Rock is not a part of this new century. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is where to hear some rock.  Got some rock posters for you.
"Little Martha" Duane Allman

In the past century I was allowed access to all of the recordings from around the world that poured into a independent rock radio station. It was a lot of records you never heard. More than Twenty  years of pre-1990 rock that most were never played on the radio.  I listened to all.  The owner let me keep any I wished to have. There was one dj that kept two of each.  That is too many records when it is time to move.

good one hakerdefo.  love to chat music.  This has caused me to revisit the biography of Roy Orbison. 
the genre of "classic " rock is not where the best music is heard.  in defense of numbers America has blues, Jazz, east, north, south, west, central, +sounds from bordering countries and influxing amalgam of backgrounds; that's spread thinly to support a lot more music, and groups, than all the british isles.

hi ozitraveller with Emily
that is a memory of attending Rainbow concert -a drum solo into Smoke on the Water had the drummer bouncing drumsticks off the drums into the audience until he was playing the drums with just his hands; it was awesome drum solo, to say the least, so much a high energy moment. I cannot remember that drummer's name; who had a reputation for doing that kind of act in the deep purple drumming arena? 

Thank You,  VastOne, for your dedication.  thanks for the 4.9.. kernel.  Forty-one months of having a readily acceptable  32bitvsido. usb in hand upon travel for spread/ share/ [brag.astonish!]  use has been a comfortable assurance result of your consistent work.  yes with 64bit where known acceptance exists.  We view your reputation of reliability as a great accomplishment.

hello VastOne
Fond of the word bare.  Bare strenghth is not mini,minimal, basic, or minus anything.

I also find it odd to find "ESR" on experimental[SID] builds. not consistent, except your mention of stability as the sole browser- removing one risk variable, but not cutting edge testing.  we are the risk takers and testers.
