Music, Rock and Roll music especially, is such a generational thing. Each generation must have their own music, I had my own in my generation, you have yours, everyone I know has their own generation.
Ronnie James Dio
My father told me abuse is generational.
When I began experimenting, people weren't ready for it. Once it's in its second and third generational stages, people can accept it.
