Is rock really dead? Not necessarily but it has had its share of death gurgles. Long gone are the days of the larger than life stadium tours. You're lucky to hear a legit pure rock song in a TV commercial or on the radio. Unless, you're the 97.1 the Eagle in Dallas. Fighting for your right to head bang, KEGL has been cranking the amp to 11 and has no signs of stopping. Providing their loyal fans with a day's worth of rock is the ultimate gift of a dying breed. There were no singer-songwriters, no DJ's, no mega-produced pop star or trendy electronic artists, just a days worth of guitars, beer, sun, and fun. From the grandiose stage setup of In This Moment, to the simple, hard rock of Breaking Benjamin, all the way to the horror-inspired brand of rock of headliner Rob Zombie, the packed crowd at Gexa proved that rock is still alive and has a strong lifeline. As long as those continue to rock, there will be ears listening and fists pumping.
