I was thinking of this after I went to see Foo Fighters with my son, a friend of his, and the friend's dad. We were all there and basically enjoyed the show. The crowd was half millennials, half middle-aged guys like me and the other dad. There wasn't a baby-boomer in sight.
Closest I can remember was when I saw Deep Purple as a teenager...but there, it was all boomers with a smattering of people my age.
I know the original "Generation Gap" was between the boomers and their parents...but now, it seems to me, the real gap is a line that runs right around a high school graduation of 1980.
Of course, I could well be full of it, in entire denial like so many of the "old" people were when I was a kid.
