Asked about some people’s claim that “rock is dead,” Joey said: “I never thought it was dead. It was just lingering for a while.”
Added Charlie: “It just doesn’t get the media attention that it once got. But we’ve been playing all these festivals, and forty thousand people here, sixty thousand people there… I don’t think rock is dead at all.”
Continued Joey: “You just do your thing and just do it well, and people will pay attention. And if they don’t like it, that’s all right; we still do a good job. That’s all you can do, really.”
