“I don’t understand some of those people from the old school who grew up loving The Strokes and are now criticising this new exploration,” Casablancas remarked.


Talking about the state of rock music, the singer said: “I don’t think, ‘Oh, rock is dead’. There’s some hip-hop music that’s inspiring. There’s a lot of old music to rediscovered. As long as music moves forward, who cares if rock is no longer what it was?”
