MUSIC and OLE FARTS
« on: January 25, 2015, 08:50:42 PM »
It was narcissistic of me to assume only I was gifted passable knowledge of genuine rock. I AM HUMBLED and I won't forget it.

Suppose if I pulled out Blue Cheer, Spirit, Robin Trowyer or Moby Grape, more than one of you nabobs will name all the bass players...

I'm definitely an Ole Fart....(saw Blue Cheer and Spirit in their original configurations ['67??], also saw Sun at the old Brown Shoe in Chicago [late 60's]).

Picking up the gauntlet.

I wouldn't include Robin Trower in that list...definitely later generation (even though he did play with Procul Harum *after* "Whiter Shade of Pale").

So there.

 ;-T One of my favorites. Saw them (or basically Kim Simmonds) at a local blues festival a few years back. Unfortunately Chris Youlden wasn't present. Still....was a good show.

While I saw my fair share of concerts in the early 70's and beyond, I'm not stuck in the past. No matter what kind of music you like, someone is making it right now and lots of it is damn good. You just have to work a bit to find it, cause you're likely not going to get it on your local radio station like you did in the olden days.

Plenty of good music forums available to get inspirations or check Al Kooper's blog New Music for old people. http://www.themortonreport.com/features/new-music-for-old-people/

Lots of exciting new talent out there to support.

Sorry Geezers, REAL ROCK means Carl Perkins, Elvis, Jerry Lee, Narvile Felts,Wanda Jackson, Charlie Rich etc. All good bands mentioned, but if you're flapping your geezer jaws do it right! ;D

Entwhistle was great. I saw the Who, double-billed with the Grateful Dead at the Oakland baseball stadium. One of the stranger double bills ever, practically two different crowds as most of the Who fans left afterwards and most of the Deadheads didn't show up until after the Who finished. A loss for both…

I wasn't expecting much from the Who. Oh boy was I surprised. Townshend is quite under-rated. Moon was on form, no need for a substitute from the audience. Entwhistle sounded more like Jack Bruce… and of course the Deadhead tapers never to my knowledge bothered to use tape for the Who. The Dead were pretty good for the days and when Lesh hit low notes the whole Coliseum would vibrate. Good times!

A friend was in a boat some distance offshore. Heard everything just fine…

What was that you said, sonny?  :BEER:

I've been reading Pete Townshend's Autobiography where he talks about playing with the dead. The Who also billed with a number of Jazz performers; Mose Allison, Miles Davis, Rahssan Roland Kirk, etc. Too bad there isn't more of that today. lots of great new Jazz artists that could use some exposure.

I saw John Entwhistle's Ox as the backup for Joe Walsh back in the Rocky Mountain Way days. Great show at the Arie Crown in Chicago. John's LP Whistle Rhymes was a classic with some really great performers and well written songs.

While I always thought Pete lost his hearing cause of all the loud concerts, he claims it was due to the excessive amount of explosive that Moon put in his drum kit and set off at the end of their performance on the Smothers Brothers show while they were smashing their instruments.

  Okay here's the argument stopper.  The first rock and roll record and artist was Arthur Crudup.
  Even Elvis and Chuck Berry agreed on that.  He first did this one in 1942, later in the fifties he even did a few with Elvis.

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxHQUvCkV20

  For me, the first R&R I heard were chuck Berry and Elvis in the mid fifties on radio.
  You guys remember radio don't'cha?  It was like TV only the pictures were only in your head.

The argument against this one and in favor of Rocket 88 is the guitar is distorted in Rocket 88.  I think you are mostly right but you can't stop the argument, however, cause It's Rock and Roll Baby...

Years ago I found a Savoy double-LP (remember LPs? oh wait, they're the only form of music increasing in sales now  :D ) by stride/boogie-woogie pianist Albert Aamons. Recorded in the early 1940s iirc. Boogie-woogie was proto-rock & roll but the surprise was the guitarist -- Chuck Norris by name (and obviously not *that* Chuck Norris) and sounding very much like Chuck Berry. Ten years before Chuck Berry. Being poor and cheap (Guzzi content) at the time, I checked it out of the library and taped it onto cassette. Need to find the CD or LP, good stuff!

Elvis ... a sad example of the effects of an addiction to fried banana and PB sandwiches , which led to an even worse jones for sequins and bell bottoms  ;D

  Dusty

You have a way of dwelling on the negative side of an artists career Dusty, While I'm not a died in the wool Elvis fan, his early work was ground breaking in the history of Rock and Roll. His Rockabilly stuff was great and he was a huge infulence on the music. Remember Heartbreak Hotel? Think of all the hotties that were falling at his feet. I am 100% hetero but DAMN he was a good lookin' man in his day! (later not so much) But hey, it happens to all of us right?

I bet you have a sequin speedo don't you?

Slow ride.......take it easy

As long as we're talkin' bar chords I must mention Link Wray, the INVENTOR of the power chord. This guy REALLY changed rock. Ask Jimmy Page, He'll tell you!

Geez fellas , all I said was ...
Elvis never wrote a song , didn't invent anything like the Bo Diddly beat , I might even suggest that Eddie Cochrane had a greater influence . Isn't Summertime Blues the most covered song in R&R ?
