Right but if the Labels aren't out there signing the technically talented rockers who would have fit perfectly in the 70s and promoting them....

That is the problem. The musicians are out there. I've found some incredibly talented bands that would kill if promoted properly. For some reason that isn't what the labels are looking for.
