  • Band Rehearsals And Performances
    566 words
    Management Plan Attendance: You are expected to be at all rehearsals and all events. During band camp, attendance is extremely important because you will miss that day's new material, and may have to be written out of the show. It is very difficult for new members to make up what they have missed. Any conflicts should be handled IMMEDIATELY! ALSO Since the band functions as a single unit and not a group of individuals, Band performances are diminished by even a single absence. Hence, you will be...
  • Murray About Twenty Minutes Before The Concert
    634 words
    Nelly Concert On Monday March 25, some members of the baseball team, my girlfriend, and I traveled to Murray State University to watch a concert performed by Nelly and the St. Lunatics. It was a terrible night to go anywhere because it was raining and storming the whole way, but there was nothing that was going to stop us from going to the concert. We where all so hyped up about it and couldn't wait to head out. My brother, who attends Murray State, had gotten us excellent seats about seventy-fi...
  • Most Clue Less Member Of The Band
    1,240 words
    This is Spinal Tap While attempting to be nothing more than a comical spoof of the music industry, Spinal Tap was instead rocketed to cult icon status. The characters in the movie are so fully thought out that almost all rock and roll bands that became popular prior to and half a decade later than the release of the movie fit the stereotypes presented by this fictitious band that ended up being more real than any other legitimate bands of the time. The days of disco had long faded by the 1984 re...

  • Elo Part II Without Jeff Lynne
    904 words
    The Electric Light Orchestra The biggest compliment a band can get is to have another singer write a song about how much they like them, as Randy Newman did in 1979 about ELO with the release of " 'The Story of a Rock and Roll Band". In the song he said, "I love their "Mr. Blue Sky" Almost my favorite is "Turn to Stone" And how 'bout "Telephone Line"? I love that ELO' " (Wild 5) The band created in 1971 by Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, and Bev Bevan used cellos and violins to create a classical sound. A...
  • Kiss First Three Studio Albums
    1,238 words
    This is a short walkthrough in the KISS history. (with credits to Alex Carranza, from whose KISS FAQ I got most of the material) Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley met for the first time in 1970, when Gene played one show with Pauls band Uncle Joe. In 1971 Gene formed the band Rainbow along with Stephen Coronel. Paul stanley wants to join Rainbow, but is beeing turned down on the phone. This does not stop Paul from turning up at the auditions, and this time he gets hired. 1972 Rainbow develops into W...

  • Three Band Members Of Everclear
    480 words
    Pearl Jam, Everclear, and No Doubt Almost everyone has a favorite band. People buy CD's and tapes to not only listen to the music that they like, but to support that band. There are many, many different types of music, and usually a certain band will fit into a specific type of music. I listen mostly to alternative / grunge music. And by coincidence the three bands I'm going to talk about are all from the west coast. I am going to talk a little bit about three of my favorite bands in that catego...
  • Pearl Jam As An Act
    619 words
    Another essential event happened in 2000, when nine fun's were killed in the crush of a general entrance audience at Denmark's Roskilde Festival. After considerable sadness and soul-searching, Pearl Jam decided to go on. These days, it's stylish to refer to Pearl Jam as an act that's reached contented middle age. Drummer Matt Cameron turned 40 late; the youngest member is guitarist Stone Gossard. These assertions of comfort and maturity do not so much result from the members's equential ages as ...
  • Record Deal With A Major Label
    1,065 words
    Everyone has a different concept of what reality is. It would seem on the surface that this should not be the case since, by definition, reality would be an absolute constant in any situation. Good on paper but not in fact. As always, the truth is never so simple. Everyone has their own take on what is real and what is not. Those who have a sense of reality most similar to our own are those we eventually think of as friends or compatriots. We tend to avoid those who disagree with us, while anyon...
  • Reservation Coyote Springs
    834 words
    The main characters of Reservation Blues were affected in different ways by having the choice to stay on the reservation or actually leaving the reservation. The reservation was a place where the Indians could feel at home. Also the reservation was a place that could feel like a closed box to the Indians. Each Coyote Springs band member had a different reason for wanting to leave or stay and he or she each was affected differently also. Many of the other Indians as well as the band members ponde...
  • Band's Founding Line
    739 words
    Aerosmith One of the USA's most popular of all hard-rock acts, Aerosmith were formed in 1970 when vocalist Steven Tyler (b. Steven Victor Tallarico, 26 March 1948, Yonkers, New York City, New York, USA; vocals) met Joe Perry (b. Anthony Joseph Perry, 10 September 1950, Lawrence, Massachusetts, USA; guitar) while the latter was working in a Sunapee, New Hampshire ice cream parlour, the Anchorage. Tyler was in the area visiting the family-owned holiday resort, Trow-Rico. Perry, then playing in the...
  • Boy Bands And Singers
    874 words
    Not Music To My Ears Today's current music scene has steadily become filled with pre-packaged assembly line bands and singers. This teen oriented pop phenomenon is repulsive. I see the so-called bands and singers for what they really are. They are passing trends made special, just for the teens, with all image and no real talent. For their own good, I can only hope these brainwashed teens will grow out of this horrible phase. Fabricated bands such as O-Town, N Sync, and The Backstreet Boys exhib...
  • Unique Feature Of Pink Floyd
    877 words
    Pink Floyd is the top space-rock band. Ever since the mid-'60's, their music has sampled with electronics and all manner of special effects to push the "normal" format to their outer limits (Richie Unterberger). The band has wrestled with lyrical themes and concepts of such massive scale that their music has taken on almost classical quality, in both sound and words Richie Unterberger). The history of Pink Floyd is full of unfortunate obstacles although; they were musical and cultural pioneers, ...
