This is what I did so as not to get "stuck in the past": first I listened to 70s psych (even the hader stuff) and then I looked back into the 60s!! When the '80s hit (and I'm still getting over it
), I did the same thing...and you know what, it works.....you learn to appreciate the new stuff better without being biased!!!
I heard one song by MBV once, but frankly I didn't like it much......but then this was some years ago
