    Go back to the year when you were were 27, then subtract 50-60 years, how many singers do you remember from that date? If I was to do that then I would be looking at the 1930s an era I know nothing about musically.

    The answer is - you are old.

      Exactly my thoughts. My dad used to try to talk to me about the singers of his generation - Mario Lanza springs to mind - and I really had no interest at all to them really.

      There are quite a few boy bands, rappers, drum'n'bass stars, etc, around today that I have never heard of. Long may that continue!

      On the other hand, I am aware - even if I'm not too enthusiastic about some of them - of acts before my time, from Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Al Bowley, Robert Johnson, Leadbelly, Glenn Miller, etc, so there's no reason why a 27 year old shouldn't have heard of Chuck Berry. My kids - from late teens to early 30s - know about Beatles, Kinks, The Who, Hendrix, etc.#......and Chuck Berry.

      I met a 75 year old man in the Amazon rainforest who was part of a tribe. He'd never heard the song Diamond lights by Glenn & Chris.

      I know they're very cut-off, but that's just bloody ridiculous!

      I met an Italian guy who runs a bar tonight (aged 27) who had never heard of Chuck Berry. I have to admit to being really surprised. Maybe I'm just too old.
      As we are talking abut Chuck Berry, it's probably a coping mechanism. The brain is a clever thing.
