In this episode I discuss an NBC News Think article that attempts to predict the historical importance of Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and The Beatles 200 years from now. And Fails!

Good points, but who cares what age someone is? What's with all the relating people to their age as if it's some kind of insult?

I think the writer's goal was to go viral by insulting some sacred music icons. He'll get some undeserved press over this and it'll likely be a career boost. It's a cheap shot considering Paul Simon's age and his massive contributions to music over the decades.

As much as I love Rick and his brilliant musical insights, I can't listen to what this useless goon (Jeff Slate) has to say about Paul Simon. He must be missing the part of his brain that processes music and lyrics. I am leaving. I am leaving! (But maybe I'll let the video play through on mute to add to the number of views.😉)

I've been saying Beat-Oh instead of Be-ah-toh all this time. I don't think I can change it now because it makes more sense that way, for obvious reasons. Perhaps Rick will consider changing the pronunciation of his name for me.

I'm in my 50s. I think there is some very good, intelligent and catchy, emotional 'new music' coming out. But the 'so-called critics' have always been crap. In the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and beyond, I think idiots just wanted to be noticed, got the gig as a 'critic' and set aside making themselves a 'name'. It's very sad. Mostly, it comes from a complete lack of understanding, but just a huge belief in themselves being right all the time.

The difference between Dylan or The Beatles or Paul Simon has much to do with timing and promotion. Dylan, has great songs, as sung by other people, but not sung by him and was in a time when there were not many good writers and then joined a super troup, then me popular again. Paul Simon was and is under rated and that is really his style and genius.

Completely agree with Rick on this. Leaving aside my admiration for Paul Simon (whom I idolize), this article is just dumb. It's more an insult to his fans than to Simon himself. I suppose journalists are paid to fabricate controversy but the only result is to feed the public's distain for that "profession."

As a historian I can say that “reporter” has no idea how history functions. History has so many layers this room for lots and lots of stories. To say decades of music will be reduced to Dylan and the Beatles is idiotic

I love Bob Dylan... in parts. Yes he was a cultural icon, part of a time specific counter culture, but musically and live, he was patchy. Some albums I love (weirdly albums like Street Legal and Slow Train Coming, which others hate), however I adore Paul Simon. Paul Simon wins every time - intelegent lyrics, interesting musically. In reality, it's hard, if not impossible to split 2 icons, they are both giants on who's shoulders a lot of subsequent music has been built. The articule is clickbait, nothing more - tbh, I already forgot the authors name.

Brother, I'm right there with you a hundred percent. I wouldn't worry too much, though. I doubt there's a single person on the planet that thinks this guy Slate can predict what's going to happen 200 seconds from now, let alone 200 years. Like you said, "No editor." So, this dude's just bloviating. Just wanna say, I'm really loving this channel. It's great that you communicate in a way that's both insightful and engaging, about something that pretty much everybody loves, music. Please, keep it up.

Bob Dylan was a great folk poet. Paul Simon was great musical poet. Dylan was thought provoking. Simon was mesmerizing. ... I'm still playing Simon and Garfunkel 55 years later on the original vinyl. I'm pretty sure there's a Dylan album around here somewhere.

Rick the 60's/70's was the most creative time in popular music, there was not the control exercised on the music like no and there was not auto tune. The music o this time will live forever, all good music is timeless, I do enjoy your channel - but what about some good Aussie music, like "Mental as Anything, Billy Thorpe and LRB".

They are both right. Where are the Bing Crosby or even Sinatra in the series What Makes This Song Great. Or even people who were their contemporaries. How many people still listen to jazz? History is cruel, and while it will be possible, probably, to hear the work of these masters in 200 year's time. The way things are going, it isn't even clear white people will be part of anything in 50 years.

There’s something very satisfying about righteous anger when it’s unleashed by someone who really knows what they’re talking about. I’m sure in 200 years they’ll still be watching RB vids for the privilege of sitting at the feet of the prophet. As an aside, if anyone used the words ‘Joni’, ‘Mitchell’ and ‘irrelevance’ in my company I’d come out swinging too. Very enjoyable - thank you. 👍

Hey, Rick - Ithaca 5-Year Non-Degree program here from 81-86 - I think you studied with Steve in the Jazz program perhaps? Anyway, the best experience I had with Paul Simon was the Central Park Concert in 92, I believe - 1 Million People in Central Park and nary an incident - when peace was present in the City... Thanx for your channel, man!

We don't know which singers / songwriters would become relevant in the future. No matter how unpopular someone becomes, everybody would find an audience online. Old recordings get rediscovered all the time. 5 decades after the Swedish group of 4 Abba no longer produce music together, their music is as popular as ever.

Classical is a red herring. This is popular music. Name some of the popular acts from early 20th century, just 100 years ago. Exactly. Lost to history. No one but musicologists will remember any of these artists in 200 years.

In my point of vue, Bach, Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, Satie, were precursors in music and expression In each generation of musicians, some are most influenced and creative and for sure their name could stay in History only 100 years ago in many houses there was a piano and the best way to listen some music was to learn to play an instrument Today, with the multiplicity of medias it is so easy to listen to music, and particularly the one you like the most. but I unfortunately believe that some incerdible composers and songwriters could disapear in the clouds of History. This is a bit disapointing but it is evolution. Be fore, you had to make efforts be able to listen to your beloved composer or songwriter now it is so easy, too much easy maybe!!! Who remembers Charpentier, Lully, and so many others that are slowly but surely fading in the past and Music History even if they left major works behind them. All of us, musicians, composers, lyricists are on a slow, slow way to become an old forgotten stuff Greetings from Belgium

BTW, the song "Bridge Over Troubled Water" contains one of the most beautifully written and moving bridge sections of any song ever. And that is no coincidence.....that is genius expressiveness in songwriting.

Paul Simon and his music helped guide me in my teens (1960’s) to become a decent person. As great a poet and musician that he is, one of my favorite Paul Simon moments was when he won a Grammy award, and while accepting the award, he thanked Stevie Wonder for not making an album that year!! Some of the greatest people of all time know how to be humble! Great poet, musician, and amazing human.

Paul Simon is BRILLIANT. The only one single interview which made me go “huh ?” was when he told some journalist that he’d run out of musical ideas and had started listening to hit records backwards and using the reversed melodies as a starting point. (Ok, HUH ?) I’ve always assumed that statement must have been taken out of context.

We have a newspaper here in the UK called The Guardian which by and large is a balanced, honest newspaper but I have long been convinced that their music journo`s are about 15 years old. Just a couple of examples. A few years ago a singer who had been runner-up on a TV talent show released her 2nd album and the music critic said "this puts her up there with Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick". That was just before an article that concuded that 2008 was the greatest ever year for pop music! Just last week an article about Hall and Oates said, "Hall, the singer, and Oates, the guitarist" what a way to sum-up a couple of outstanding singers and musicians. I know that we all have our opinions but honestly folks!

Yikes! What a harsh article! Added: harsh and stupid! I really appreciate that Rick Beato knows (and is interested in) classical music too. Added again: hire a musicologist? That would be way too obvious, and they would never pay for it. And it would actually be grounded in real knowledge and research, something that seems to be completely disregarded these days.

In order to guess what historians will find important musically you would have to know what political stuff is going to happen. If say for some odd reason the United States had a big collapse and Asian countries became the driving force people like Dylan and the Beatles would not matter. They only matter as long as the U.S. is in some form together to make the British invasion have relevance. As far as what musical tastes from now will be important good luck guessing that. I heard a country version of Purple Rain and that really just damaged my soul....and I am an atheist.

In 1989, in recognition of Paul Simon's efforts, The United Negro College Fund bestowed upon Simon its highest honor, The Frederick I Patterson Award. The Berklee College of Music named him for an Honorary Doctorate of Music in 1986, and 10 years later, Yale University extended a similar honor. These awards are given for their contributions to music without genre isolation.
