Rock n Roll Music Is Dead?!

I wonder what happen to Rock n Roll musics industry in our country, I'm really disappointed with the current Malaysians are not appreciate with this kind of music.

Last Saturday Night I went to Carnegie's at Central Plaza, Jalan Sultan Ismail with some friends. That was my second visit to this place. I swear I won't go to that place anymore!

At the main entrance you can see the big sign with 'The Spirit Of Rock' as the motto, what I can say is FUCK IT! Where is the spirit gone?!!! For the whole night I was sitting inside there, I can't hear any single of Rock n Roll song played in there! What I heard was only house, trance, R&B, rap and hip-hop songs only. I was feeling unwell with it and I got headache, I can't even got the mood to drink at all, I only manage to drink 1 mug of beer and 1 pint of KilKenny, after that I really drunk and feeling damn unwell.

The interior design is a rock concept with all the classic rock band posters and pictures. But the musics really SUCKS!!! No wonder this place going to close down end of December 2006 because lack of customers, they deserved it!

Carnegie's Kuala Lumpur

However few months back I went to Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur at Wisma Concorde Jalan Sultan Ismail, that was my first and last visit to this place too!

Hard Rock Cafe used to be the most famous Rock n Roll music cafe in around the world, but the one in Kuala Lumpur is really SUCKS!!! I was there just wanted to hear live band in rock musics, in the end was a big disappointment for me. The band only played hip-hop, rap, R&B... when the band take a break, the DJ only played the same types of those non-rock songs. What the hell is that? I paid the cover charge and I was just hoping to hear some good rock musics, but the musics really kill me off!!! I think this is the only Hard Rock Cafe in the world never play any rock songs!

I just managed to finish a small bottle of stout and I walked off from that place. It was a huge disappointment for me! With such a well known rock cafe in the world, but they really kill the rock musics off.

Many of my friends went to other Hard Rock Cafe in other countries, they told me non of them like what happen in Malaysia, they really played more rock songs than other types of songs. Is the DJ don't know how to play the songs or the customers don't know how to listen to rock songs? IF YOU DON'T PLAY ROCK SONGS THEN DON'T OPEN SUCH KIND OF CAFES WITH ROCK CONCEPT!!! IT'S LIKE YOU ARE PROMOTING SANDWICH BUT YOU ARE SELLING SALSA.

Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur

I'm getting pissed off with music industry now days, they always think that rock musics is related with satanic, violence, drugs, wild sex... Damn it!!! You try to look at music videos (non-rock) now days, they are showing event worst than what they think the 'bad side' of rock musics. Please wake up!!!

Last time we have Classic Rock Channel on radio, but they stopped it on air and now only can listen from Astro, I don't have Astro here, if I have I won't listen radio channel through my TV set, I rather listen to radio when I'm driving. Then they came out with WOW FM with more rock songs, but in the end it closed down too.

I'm not to offense other types of musics, I just pissed off with how they treat rock musics in such a 'so called' rock cafe/pub/bistro. My little wish is please keep Rock n Roll music alive!!!

For Those About To Rock, I Salute You!!!
