    People enjoy claiming to be born in the wrong generation, especially in the music scene. Current trends in acid rock and Beatles cover bands would definitely support this claim. But it isn't often that people relish their ability to take their love of old traditions and make them more modern, and it's even more rare that someone makes that claim with standards... a genre literally all about following a set of rules and boundaries. Arguably, current traditions in freak-beats and independant music stem from these classics, but the road is often twisted and obscured with years of experimentation (and the influence of eighties music).
