NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #293 ~ 12-18-21]

Pictured: The “5” Royales.

We live in an age in which our Caesars no longer write their own speeches, but instead, like hollow actors, enunciate platitudes written for them, like so much vapid advertising copy. It has been so long since they have elucidated their own honest thoughts that honest thought itself is instinctively shunned as taboo, as something that might alienate the consumer. Much of the writing in magazines – not only about rock ‘n’ roll, but about everything – has taken on that same deadening quality, as if writers were ghostwriting their own thoughts to conform to some norm of taste. “Time [magazine] cries and lets you care.” Fuck that shit. “We Are the World” was not rock ‘n’ roll. It was the sound of Time crying. Maybe real rock ‘n’ roll is impossible in an age of safe sex, an age in which the youth of America seem more driven by venality than by venery, an age in which yellow suspenders are regarded as a sign of power rather than of putzhood.

— Nick Tosches, Unsung Heroes of Rock’n’Roll.
