Mick Jagger’s comments on the rock industry caused a stir among fans after an interview, and now Måneskin frontman Damiano David is speaking out to share his thoughts on the legend’s opinion.
According to iHeart, the Rolling Stones singer answered a question about Harry Styles, and he mentioned that up-and-coming musicians like Machine Gun Kelly and Yungblud make him think “there’s still some life in rock n’ roll.” .
Speaking to NME’s Big Read band cover, the Italian rocker reacted to Jagger’s comments, saying his opinion was “a very old-fashioned way to look at it”.
David went on to say that nobody keeps rock n’ roll alive because it’s impossible to “kill”.
For him, what they do as a group is very different from what MGK does as well as what Yungblud and Willow Smith do.
“A lot of artists bring back that kind of sound and energy: distorted guitars and real drums, to play with a band with real analog sounds, to dive on stage – all the rock n’roll s***” , he added. .
The singer also mentioned that the music is developing and everything is colliding and blending “in a good way”.

Elsewhere in the interview, he was also asked about his opinion on the opinions of rock purists who compare new bands to legendary bands like the Rolling Stones; David said he loved pissing them off because it was his guilty pleasure.
“To me, it makes no sense to expect us to behave like the Stones or the Queen. It’s happened before and peaked. They f****** created a legacy and no one can touch it,” he replied.
David also thought it was stupid and pointless to expect a band of 20-year-olds to replicate the music scene of the 70s and 80s.
Since they are in 2022, the group has been trying their best to create something new that would make them happy and satisfied.
Måneskin first started his career as a street artist. They rose to fame in 2017 after placing second in the eleventh season of the Italian version of ‘X Factor’.
Their career skyrocketed even more on the international music scene after winning the Eurovision Song Contest last year for the song “Zitti e buoni”.
Today, they have performed in different cities around the world and appeared on television shows in the United States.
