I've just turned 30 so I wouldn't know a later perspective, but given that Unknown Pleasures is my only survivor from my teenage favourites (the Kraftwerk and Aphex were close but just a little bit later maybe) it does suggest some kind of re-assessment through the years. I think I've got everything out of rock music that I ever will, though.

That's how I felt when I turned 30, which isn't to say I never listen to rock albums, but other genres are more exciting for me to explore.

Speaking as someone who is in his early thirties I have to say that I spent a lot of my twenties listening to other esoteric underground techno and mega obscure Brazilian grooves, but have regressed to rock of late. Now I'm 33 and listen to nothing but Whitesnake and Uriah Heep.

Yes I myself am about to start the Zambian leg of my African trip and I hope to find some tribes there who haven’t even heard of an ‘electric guitar’ and instead make music from seeds and fruit - how exciting that would be!

You know, you might try this one group----

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

What other "rock" artists did you explore? I can't help but wonder since you say that all that has stuck with you is the first Joy Division. Not meant as an insult, I sincerely can't fathom this.

It's not the only one that stuck with me. Just the only that was in my top ten list on this thread. When I said 'survivor', I was referring just to that.

I had a Beatles obsession to rival anyone's at 14/15. I then discovered a bit of punk and 80s/90s alt/indie. I got quite heavily into electronic a bit later.

It's still hard to imagine that you aren't still finding things to get out of rock music, but I understand what you're saying now!

The first 4 are the first ones I owned and played a lot, circa 1968-70 [as a 10-12 year old]

Jimi I got into becuz of my bestie's older brother

Badfinger was a favourite in '72, and ever since

Moved to Detroit in 1973 - discovered Bowie and Roxy; got heavily into them and LZ.

Came to Iggy later

Look up here, I'm in heaven
