Thanks everyone for the posts and all of the info. Cystem_Phailure for some reason the name James Leroy is a mystery to me but when I went over to Youtube his music seems familiar to me. Someone over there had posted that he was a member of Major Hoople's Boarding House for a while but that name doesn't ring a bell either. Sad tho when someone so talented is gone at a young age.
Electricpawn you posted some music by Bob Dylan which reminded me that a few years back he did some work on the movie soundtrack for " The Wonder Boys ", he was sounding very good there as I had not heard him for a while.
Sometimes when listening to the radio one hears an ad that takes a person way back in time. I mentioned in a earlier post that I'm quite happy with my Satellite radio but I do still listen to some local radio here as well. This morning I had on a local talk show and I heard an ad that immediately made me think of the old tune " I'm So Young And You're So Old ". Yes it was an ad that featured Paul Anka who has recently released a new Christmas CD. Of course besides having some very nice hit songs Paul also appeared in a couple of movies and performed in Las Vegas as well. Needless to say Paul Anka is no Spring Chicken ( I know that because I'm not either and he is older than I am lol ) but I was very glad to hear that he is still hard at it.
Beatles (out of beatles and stones)
btw Andy you have it wrong, Ringo was a genius.
also some good rock is from 70s Steve Miller Band, 80s Violent Femmes, 90s Tool, and who doesn't recognize the genius of today that is Lil' Wayne
My 16 year old granddaughter absolutely loves the Beatles, her favorite being Ringo Starr!
Thanks for the posts FlowerFlowers and Javan64. That's two votes for Ringo ! lol; I love to hear him singing the leading part in " Yellow Submarine ", that song puts me in a good mood every time it's on the Radio. I'm not sure if he has another tour planned for his All Star Band, imagine if he could get Paul to tour with them !!! One can only hope I guess.
Before George Harrison passed away from cancer, there was a joke making the rounds, which asked, "What is the only thing which can reunite the Beatles?" The answer of course was, "Three bullets!" Yeah, I know it's tacky...
Thanks for leaving the joke Javan64, I had heard that one somewhere before. Of course any fanatic Beatles supporter would have been quite upset back when that joke first came out. Sad to see that there are of course only two of the Fab-four left now.
I'd prefer a bullet to cancer, any old day!
Hmmm thats a deep subject to go into. Reminds me of some of the early scenes in the first " Grumpy Old Men " movie with Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau where they are talking about the demise of one of their friends.
Which singer had the most influence ? beatles - rolling stones - clapton - and many other bands/singers, all publicly agree that their inspiration evolved from the blues - gospel trained Elvis Presley .
Elvis was a performer with a great voice and good looks.
Thanks for leaving a post Froghollow. Well what can one say about the King that has not been said before ? Mister Presley was such an icon that there must be several thousand Elvis impersonators out there making a living off his fame. Most of the acts that were popular before the Beatles hit the USA faded away quickly but Elvis stayed on as the King. Long live the KING !!!
Elvis Presley? "That'll be the day!"
John Lennon said "Before Elvis there was nothing."
Bob Dylan is clearly a song writer whose lyrics are complex and topical. He is a poet, and judging from the number and stature of contemporary artists that recorded his songs, he was very influencial on music.
The greatest cover of a Dylan song.
I agree , Hess, but I'm still looking. When the greatest guitar player ever records your music, you know you have something.
