    The "Black Crowes" made me remember something:

    http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/b...ns/75bands.jpg

    There are 75 music groups represented (caricatured) in that ^ image. Like for example, those big jets flying over the scene are American B-52 bombers... > The B-52's

    Trying to find all 75 bands, or even half of 'em, is a great way to waste a whole weekend. Ask me how I know.


    PS: The image was created in 2006, so forget any artists that became well known after then.


    Edit #2: Maybe the image should be the basis for a new thread... "Name the Music Artists In This Pic!"?
    _____________


    EDIT #3. The total number of bands is either 75, 72, or 70. The only "solution" I can find now contains 70. But when I first came across this thing 2-3 years ago, the OP said there were 72. But the title of the graphic says 75. So... ..... I dunno .....

    If anybody can come up with a final count of 75, please let us know.

    Default "Old Hippie"

    Gotta be fast to keep up with this thread!


    All this Ballad stuff made me think of a lyric... "He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do"... Had to google it to place the song. The following is "Country & Western", bordering on Country Rock (they are a cross-over band), but not quite Rock 'n' Roll. But it is a ballad about an old Rocker, and it is very much about the music. And other things.

    1985, #2 in the USA and #1 in Canada. Wind of Change is a 'worldview' ballad. This one is purely personal.

    NB: In the video there's a storm coming up. It gets a little "interesting" at the end.




    He turned 35 last Sunday
    In his hair he found some gray
    But he still ain't changed his lifestyle
    He likes it better the old way
    So he grows a little garden
    In the back yard by the fence
    He's consuming what he's growing
    Nowadays in self-defense
    He gets out there in the twilight zone sometimes
    When it just don't make no sense

    He gets off on Country music
    'Cause Disco left him cold
    He's got young friends into New Wave
    But he's just too friggin' old
    And he dreams at night of Woodstock
    And the day John Lennon died
    How the music made him happy
    And the silence made him cry
    Well he thinks of John sometimes
    And he has to wonder why.

    'Cause he's an old hippie
    And he don't know what to do
    Should he hang on to the old
    Should he grab on to the new
    He's an old hippie
    This new life is just a bust
    He ain't tryin' to change nobody
    He's just tryin' real hard to adjust.

    He was sure back in the sixties
    That everyone was hip
    Then they sent him off to Vietnam
    On his senior trip
    And they forced him to become a man
    While he was still a boy
    And behind each wave of tragedy
    He waited for the joy
    Now this world may change around him
    But he just can't change no more.

    'Cause he's an old hippie
    And he don't know what to do
    Should he hang on to the old
    Should he grab on to the new
    He's an old hippie
    This new life is just a bust
    He ain't tryin' to change nobody
    He's just tryin' real hard to adjust.

    Well he stays away a lot now
    From the parties and the clubs
    And he's thinking while he's jogging 'round
    Sure is glad he quit the hard drugs
    'Cause him and his kind
    Get more endangered every day
    And pretty soon the species
    Will just up and fade away
    Like the smoke from that torpedo
    Just up and fade away.

    Yeah he's an old hippie
    And he don't know what to do
    Should he hang on to the old
    Should he grab on to the new
    He's an old hippie
    This new life is just a bust
    He ain't tryin' to change nobody
    He's just tryin' real hard to adjust.
    Yeah he ain't tryin' to change nobody
    He's just tryin' real hard to adjust.

    While we're there (in "Country" country)...

    Another history lesson. This is where I put on my Casey Kasem voice... or **** Clark? .... Nah, I'll go with Wolfman Jack...




    The clips below represent my rationale for including Swing and Western Swing in the history of Rock music. By some opinions, Western Swing led the way to Big Band Swing, but I'm sure that's an arguable point. At any rate, the most perennially popular Western Swing band in America was Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. And the Bob Wills 'boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. So there ya go.

    Following Bob Wills by a couple of decades were these guys, led by the rich baritone voice of Ray Benson.

    1990:





    1974:

    CORE!!

    But you know, everyone loves Rock music in one form or another, and doesn't it follow that almost anything can be made to fit really well?....and it goes without saying that even a lot of the greatest symphony orchestras all over the world (and so on) have plugged into Rock and in many cases made the genre even better by taking the music to another level.

    Gordon Lightfoot; born in Ontario, music legend from one corner of a whole continent to the other. Superb lyricist, highly accomplished guitarist, story-teller extraordinaire. Song Writers Hall of Fame, Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, Queen's medal. RHOF has gotta be next.



    Lyrics correction:
    You know that ghost is me
    And I will never be set free
    As long as I'm a ghost you can't see.
    [ALL the lyrics sites I've seen have it wrong.]


    From the album Sit Down Young Stranger:

    you're welcome and yea I thought that even if the bagpipes didn't make the grade then the visual context would carry it through

    Heard this on the 80's station on the way home today. Wikipedia lists his principal genre as Pop rock, blues rock and blue-eyed soul. Never heard that one before
