The body of the paper itself was written from the point of view of a person who has one foot planted in the mainstream of the movement of the rock culture, while remaining enough apart from the rock scene to keep a certain amount of objectivity. This objectivity includes discussing the various historical and sociological factors which have contributed to the shaping of the present situation. Often times the discussion of those factors will be written in the language or point of view of a member of the present rock culture. It is the hope of the author that this writing style will help his readers in their understanding of the rock scene as it exists at the time of this writing.
