Foo Who?

The Foo Fighters were playing a surprise gig just down the road in Frome last night. The BBC interviewed locals who, in the main, were around their early 60s and, almost without exception, no-one knew who the hell the Foo Fighters are. 

I  just cannot believe that people from my generation are just so disconnected from popular culture. 

There again, I was listening to Desert Island Discs where crusty, 71 year old history professor, Sir Antony Beevor, was picking classical music featuring mainly trumpets, when all of a sudden he selects a couple of Blondie tracks. Never saw that coming. Mind you, he looks to be more in his 50s than his 70s.
