  • Eric Clapton
    646 words
    Cocaine Early on in his career, Eric Clapton seemed to have a difficult time sticking to one band. He played with the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Blues breakers, Blind Faith, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, and Cream. But throughout all the time he spent with each of those bands, no solo work was ever thought of until 1970. It was in 1970 that Clapton launched his solo career with his self-titled debut album. His first album had only one real hit, so to speak, with "After Midnight", but is still regard...

  • Most Popular Metallica Song
    1,661 words
    Like Led Zeppelin before it, Metallica combined relentless touring and an uncompromising musical approach with a carefully cultivated air of mystery to achieve enormous commercial success. That it has become one of rock's most popular groups is made all the more amazing by the fact that not one of its peer bands which were also playing a sped-up, harder-edged take on heavy metal has succeeded, or survived, for that matter. And even those who don't care for Metallica's music recognize that few ba...
  • Justin 6 Albums

    I'll say straight up that I'm not nor ever was an N'sync fan. The 80's are over and so is the mandate for me to listen to and love pop... I like a bit more substance to my music. But even still, some albums or songs are so catchy, with great beats that even as pop or r&b records they make you run out to the store and purchase them. I thought this was the case w / Timberlake, as the first single from his Justified had me bop pin' my head and tapping my toes. No doubt about it, Justin has soul and...

    CONCERT REPORT #1 I chose to do my first concert report on Pearl Jam. The concert took place at Deer Creek the weekend after class started, so it was perfect timing to do this assignment. This was the first time I have seen Pearl, and I thought it was worthy of writing a report on. If one has ever been a fan of Pearl Jam, they of course know that Eddie Vedder is the lead singer, and right beside him with his wicked lead guitar playing, Stone Gossard. The other guys on the strings are, Mike McCre...

  • Jimi's Signature Song
    855 words
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience released its first album in early 1967. Popular music had been leaning towards psychedelics for a couple years already and Are You Experienced? came out at about the same time as the Beatles's er geant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Are You Experienced? far exceeded the Beatles' triumph in complexity, capturing the essence of the late 1960's culture. Naturally the newer band did not share the immediate success of the Beatles.

    Growing up in Incubus's hadow, Hoobastank distinguishes themselves by rocking hard their own way. by Brian Baker Since their inception in Agoura Hills, CA in the early '90's, Hoobastank has suffered from something of an identity crisis. When you grow up in a community where the local-band-makes-good story belongs to Incubus, and you play a similarly toned brand of shredding pop with a pummeling beat, comparisons are bound to arise. Hoobastank's claim to singularity is an amazing sense of melodic...
