Weekly survey: What are you most looking forward to in 2020 when it comes to music?

It’s a new year and a new decade. Let’s ignore for the moment the crisis with the US and Iran, the impeachment, crazy North Korea, the rise of China, the meddling of Russia, climate change, and all the other difficult things we have to worry about and talk about good stuff.

For example, what are you (a) looking forward to the most in terms of music and/or (b) what dreams do you have for music in 2020?

I’m going to leave this wide open. No wrong answers. You can even drop in a prediction or two if that’s where you want to take eit.

Let’s take the temperature of the musical zeitgeist. Go.

    Since John Frusciante is back with the Chili Peppers, I hope they release a new album. Having said that, a double album would be great:) Same for RATM – since Zach is back, I hope new Rage should songs will be released.

    I think rock will take over this decade. It’s about time. And let’s face it, with all the negativity in the world right now, it should be easy to create angst filled music!

    Foo Fighters 25th anniversary gives me huge hopes for a record – and they’re teasing new stuff already – and tour. Can’t wait!

    I’d love some unreleased Hip music.

    Getting the Foos into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with a new album, Headstones tour and maybe the Lemmy solo stuff seeing the light of day. Hopefully that Soundgarden can work out their issues with Chris Cornell’s estate to get a final record out as well.
