Russell Brand Thinks Today's Bands 'More Preppy'
Funnyman Russell Brand fears rock 'n' roll has lost its edge because today's top stars are too conscientious. The Brit, who plays wild rocker Aldous Snow in upcoming "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" sequel "Get Him To The Greek", thinks today's stars are too soft and caring and he craves a return to an era when all they did was rocked.
He explains, "Bands are more preppy nowadays. That's why I think of Aldous Snow as a man out of time. He would've fit in better in the '60s or '70s. Rock stars didn't have to care back then. Early rock 'n' roll was about hedonism and escape."
"Now it's all about being conscientious. Bono from U2 is a statesman; Chris Martin does yoga. Do you think (Led) Zeppelin or Guns N' Roses had any interest in that? We could use a little bit more of their attitude."
