The Beatles or The Rolling Stones or who ? ( or even the Who ? )

    To continue:

    A large part the reason for the creation of Punk Rock in the mid 70's was to try to bring back the shorter song format. It was a rebellion against the "rock excesses" of the period.

    And the same again for the Punk Revival of the mid 90's. Which were the bands Tool competed against. (Green Day, Offspring, Presidents of the United States of America)

    (I really hate history. Unless it's either chess history, or rock history. Then I can't get enough.)

    I'm guessing the bands you noted did not consider the other bands as competitors. I'd bet they liked the music of those other bands.

    Perhaps I don't know rock history as you do, but I thought the so-called punk revival (as you call it) was just artists being themselves.

    Wow, rough Avicii concert night in Boston yesterday.  When I saw the headline that dozens of people had been hospitalized I thought it was due to one physical cause, like a collapsed section of stands or something, but it looks like it may have all been a combination of heat, pills, and booze.

    .

    Just my opinion, but I don't thinkTGD cared about chart hits. I would be surprised if they coulda told you what the inside of a studio looked like.

    Thanks for all of the recent posts.

    Hank Williams SR had a big hit many years ago with " Jambalaya ", a Cajun song that I like very much. Why did I mention that song here ? Well the other day I heard a nice version of that number by Fats Domino, done in a pleasant and swinging style ( Fats could make a nice song out of the names in the phone book  lol ).

    Further update on Rolf Harris, he has been convicted on 12 counts of indecent assault. Being at age 84 now will come into play but he should still get some jail time.

    Btw, will you still luv me when I'm 64 ? Ok how about when I'm 74 ? Today is Ringo Starr's 74th ( let's all sing a verse or two of " We all live in a yellow Submarine " ).

    Let me just say one thing right here and now: " I Won't Back Down ! ". Well it is of course Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers who have that song out. The other day CBC radio had a very good 90 minute interview with Tom Petty and they played some nice tunes of his. I do think that one area in which Petty gets a bit short-changed sometimes is as a songwriter.

    Another area is his acting.  Nobody is as bad at acting as some reviewers claim Petty is.  Cool

    --- Thanks for the post Cystem_Phailure. I'm so far out of touch that I didn't know about Petty trying his hand at acting. Not that there is anything wrong in that I mean look at all of the films that Elvis made.

    See the tree planted in George Harrison's memory, in L.A., has been destroyed by Beatles. They should have used Norwegian Wood.
