Noel Redding left for England and was replaced by Jimi's old army buddy, Billy Cox. Mitch Mitchell left also, but soon returned when Jimi formed his new band, Band of Gypsies . Jimi and his new band went to the Woodstock Music and Art Fair in August 1969. The apex of this performance was his playing of the Star Spangled Banner. This song was a meaningful and compelling statement during the height of civil rights and the Vietnam War.
The band drifted over a couple of years and Page decided he wanted to from a “super group”. Page and Jones initially asked Keith Moon and John Entwistle from The Who but they both declined. Page finally found singer Robert Plant and Plant suggested drummer John Bonham. The band started rehearsing and came together fast. They eventually changed their name to Led Zeppelin when drummer Keith Moon said that the band would go over like a lead zeppelin, or a terrible gig.
Chandler became his manager and suggested Hendrix change the spelling of his name from Jimmy to Jimi. They immediately started auditions for a backing group. John ‘Mitch’ Mitchell was chosen to play drums, and Noel Redding switched over from guitar to bass after failing an audition to play for the new Animals. The band they formed became known as the Jimi Hendrix Experience (American… 2). Their first album Are You Experienced?
In 1981 they were joined by Adam Yauch, who played bass. Yauch and Diamond took nicknames, Yauch was MCA, and Diamond was Mike D. This was also the year that they changed their band name to The Beastie Boys, which ironically, included a woman who played in the band. The group played a few gigs at local New York punk venues, and after being heard by other hardcore punk bands, they earned the opening slot for groups like Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys, and the Misfits. In 1982, they recorded the cassette album Pollywog Stew with 171A Records. After this release, John Berry left the group and was replaced by Adam Horovitz who had the nickname of Ad-Rock.
Browne asked the band if they wanted 72 hours of free studio time at his studio in L.A. Also, David Bowie asked Stevie to play on his album Let’s Dance. The band arrived in L.A. Thanksgiving weekend in 1982. They recorded eight songs the first day and two songs the next. After that, the band went back to Austin and recorded the
Unfortunately, Gerard was unable to both sing and play guitar at the same time, so he called on his friend , Ray Toro, a talented local guitar player, to help him. Ray was also very impressed with "Skylines and Turnstiles" and agreed to help as well . Now, the band had a guitar player, singer, and drummer, but they were missing a bassist. The obvious person to fill this position was Mikey Way, Gerard's younger brother who had always dreamed of being in a band. Mikey had never played bass before, but learned to do so specifically to be in his brother's band.

After a few years later, the band became hugely popular. (Waters, 2005) Van Halen signed to Warner Bros in 1977, after releasing a self-titled debut a year later, starting off a string of multi-platinum albums and sold out tours. Eddie also began being recognized as one of the best rock guitarist, he won numerous poll awards from all the world’s guitar magazines.

Attending a live concert you can see their real motive and feelings through each song. Although the venue of the concert wasn’t appealing and didn’t get to experience his whole actual concert, every song that Wiz Khalifa performed was great and you could either get involved or even relate to the song. I attended a concert at the Arizona State Fair in the Coliseum on Friday, October 17. Wiz Khalifa was part of the 2014 Concert Series at the Arizona State Fair. Wiz came from a military family and his first attempt at committing lyrics to paper was around age nine, and at 12 he was already recording and producing his own records in his father's Oklahoma studio.
Two weekends ago I went to my very first concert. I went and saw 30 Seconds to Mars at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Bowl was built on July 11, 1922 but was recently renovated in 2004. Experiencing my first concert was one of the best things I have done. I had heard reviews from this band from my friends, but I, myself, had expectations since I had never heard of this band.
