Yep, completely. Even though my dad isn't a Sabbath fan he would be of that age group. I can't think of any music that he evens listens to that came out after the 80s. Obviously I'm sure there are a good amount that would be exceptions to this, but I'm going to guess the majority of people who grew up w/ Sabbath probably haven't listened to many new bands since the 80s as well.
I'm sure there are exceptions but as a whole I'm guessing this is closer to being true than not.
