* Ric Flair
* Remaining Beastie Boys
* Robert Pollard
* Mick Foley

Rock and roll in modern times is more a verb than a noun

More embodying an attitude (which changes) than a style of music

I like Blondie....but putting Debbie Harry in that list is re-duck-u-less
One could make the argument she has sold more records than Bryan Ferry, Van Morrison, or Ray Davies (unless I am way off on my sales figures I just googled) and probably has more "recognizable to common people in 2019" songs than all three together. Debbie Harry being on this doesn't seem absurd to me.

TL;DR

But there's another sense in which rock is very nearly dead: Just about every rock legend you can think of is going to die within the next decade or so.

Behold the killing fields that lie before us: Bob Dylan (78 years old); Paul McCartney (77); Paul Simon (77) and Art Garfunkel (77); Carole King (77); Brian Wilson (77); Mick Jagger (76) and Keith Richards (75); Joni Mitchell (75); Jimmy Page (75) and Robert Plant (71); Ray Davies (75); Roger Daltrey (75) and Pete Townshend (74); Roger Waters (75) and David Gilmour (73); Rod Stewart (74); Eric Clapton (74); Debbie Harry (74); Neil Young (73); Van Morrison (73); Bryan Ferry (73); Elton John (72); Don Henley (72); James Taylor (71); Jackson Browne (70); Billy Joel (70); and Bruce Springsteen (69, but turning 70 next month).

Those people might be alive but their rock sauce is weak dead...they are legends for their contributions four or five decades ago except Neil

If there is any hope itís the young


The word rock has come to mean whatever young people play...it has little connection to chuck berry or rock and roll

You're right. Women do tend to live longer.
