Do you all agree when Prince said the 60s, 70s and 80s were the golden ages of music?

So I came across this interview today and it dates back to 2011. Prince felt the 60s-80s were the golden ages of music when artists played their instruments, wrote their own songs and actually had to perform (those were his reasons).

I posted it and if you watch from 7:40 you’ll see what I mean.

What do you all think?
I would say the late 50's, 60's and 70's .... stereo analog LP era.

I can not stand Prince by the way.
As a jazz fan, I would say the golden age was the 40s, 50s and 60s, sonically as well as musically.
Somewhat agree....

  that 80’s pop synth tripe was horrible.

   Heavy metal is golden, I grew up during (as mentioned earlier)
the birth of metal, the heavier turn to thrash, death metal born in Tamps,  east coast,...overkill etc. west coast slayer, etc
the myriad of bands who made the 80s’ so special....
the imports, motorhead, onslaught, GBH, Venom,..The exploited, crossfire, Samson, Saxon, and the hundreds of other bands who swan the pond to make it big here.
the domestic megadeth, Hirax, forbidden, etc.....

 metal just about died when those Seattle morons hit the scene, with all those other northwest bands.. hair metal was dead, thrash was kept alive by a few select bands.

  I’m done, I’m tired.

 Metal is a gift from the Godz!
He was one heckuva guitar player. He played many instruments. And he’s absolutely right. Why? What era has as many actual hits?
And he’s referring to Motown too, for he grew up on Motown. And besides being surrounded by great songwriters Motown’s musical backbone was having music performed by jazz musicians. Rock can’t claim that. Only Motown can. The great James Jamerson was but one of these jazz musicians who created the music that became Motown. Barry Gordy was no fool. He knew where to find the best musicians for his recordings. The jazz night club. And that’s what Prince is referring to too. Real musicians performing on instruments at a high level. Know your stuff. As a non pro jazz pianist who began on trumpet, migrated to sax and bass, who eventually came to piano, I can relate.
