What’s not to love about Glenn Hughes? The man is an amazing bassist, singer, and just an overly lovable dude. When he’s not tearing it up on stage with an iconic classic rock band, he’s probably in the studio writing stellar music and paving the way for many young musicians to come. But speaking of young musicians, or just young people in general, Glenn had some not-so-favorable words for the generation known as millennials.
In a recent interview with White Line Forever, Glenn talked about a great many things, one of them being just how he feels about millennials as a whole. Here is some of what he had to say…
“The way I see it is this, and this is a generalization: millennials want all the power and all the money of people that have already got it without working for it. I’m sorry — that’s the way I see it; that’s the way I see it in this world. And people in my age group have worked their asses off to get this. And a lot of youngsters — and some youngsters don’t feel that way — they just want it all, they want it now, they want what you’ve got, and they’re not willing to work their asses off for three or four decades to get it. And it just doesn’t work that way.”
“I’m old school. I’ve had a heart attack, I’ve been shot at, pistol whipped, run over with a car, I’ve been stabbed, and all of a sudden, I’m working with people that have no idea what I’ve been through and they just want success and success, you just don’t get it overnight.”
