The shock rocker doesn’t understand how this new crop of acoustic performers can be, well, so safe, and still be coined rock.
“I just feel like this whole generation maybe all need to eat a steak,” Cooper said in an interview with Fuse. “Maybe they need to quit eating…vegetarian food and get out there and get some blood pumping in their system.”
He added that being a rock musician means that “you’re an outlaw” and that rock ‘n’ roll comes from your guts as opposed to your brain. “It’s sexual,” he said. “It’s tribal.”
He added that, “rock bands don't have accordions or lutes or flutes, unless, maybe, you're Jethro Tull.”
