Speculate in the replies or don't. They don't care.

Gene Simmons has declared that "rock is finally dead." Now that we've got that settled ... what's next?
Rock did not die of old age. It was murdered. Some brilliance, somewhere, was going to be expressed, and now it won’t, because it’s that much harder to earn a living playing and writing songs. No one will pay you to do it.
