From an article in today's Times, we "discover" that teens and their baby-boomer parents are embracing the vintage rocker aesthetic:
Nor will the sight of a baby boomer tricked out in leather and flares raise many eyebrows, Mr. Padilla added. "In the 60's, if you had a record executive walking around in a Sonic Youth T-shirt, you would have thought he was out of his mind.
"But today it's O.K. for a 50-year-old to wear a Sonic shirt, because everybody in Sonic Youth is 50 years old."
Well, of course. Anyone wearing a Sonic Youth shirt in the 60's would have to be batshit insane. Or clairvoyant.
