This song was not a Mike Vax original, but it was written by Howard Cespedes. Track nine—“Naked Gun”—is a medium slow minor swing chart featuring Olmos, Vax, pianist Max Perkoff, baritone Doug Rowan and bassist Mario Suraci. I like this song because it contrasts as a change of pace song for the album and because it sounds like a “dirty blues”. Track eleven, “Vax Attacks”, is a Mike Vax original featuring who else, but Mike Vax on trumpet and Scott Peterson on saxophone. I like this song because “Vax Attacks” is an upbeat swing chart filled with
Very little "jamming" was put into it and the themes in the lyrics were more morbid and serious as ever before. Some Devil is more about giving Matthews a platform to showcase his singer and songwriter side, by releasing serious and straightforward tunes with a slower beat. The album causes many to ask themselves, could there be an outstanding poet lurking behind Americas favorite "frat" boy band? One of the songs on this album, "Gravedigger" might stand out to one who has listened to the band before. Instead of
Bill was born in Baltimore, Maryland but soon moved to Denver, Colorado where he was raised. He grew up playing the clarinet before switching over to the guitar.

Dylan first recorded "Blood on the Tracks" in New York and later decided to re-record most of it with a backing band after his brother suggested it the original may perhaps be too monotonous. One of the recognizable features of "Blood on the Tracks" are the first evidences of Dylan's capabilities as a storyteller, which John Wesley Harding already hinted at approximately 8 years before ("The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest" is one of Bob's most complex ballads). The album opens with a great jumbled tale, one of his most well-known songs: "Tangled Up in Blue". The track brilliantly introduces one to the moods and
National Living Treasure Whether we admit it as Americans or not, we all have a people that we designate, honor, and financially support. We just do it without realizing what is going on. Every album or song we buy from our favorite singer/songwriter goes directly into the pocket of the artist. Now with the help of I-Tunes, artists are making more and more money than they used to, no contest. Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is probably one of the most influential rappers alive, and more than likely one of the most well-known across America.
Slash felt like an outsider in school because he did not really fit in with the other children. In the mid-seventies, Slash’s parents divorced and Slash moved in with his grandmother. During this time, Slash began to grow a great interest in riding bicycles and went on to win many awards and cash prizes in competition. He did not receive his first guitar until he was 15. Slash would find himself falling behind in school, so he would just stay home and play guitar all day.
It began as the backing for doo-wop and was then picked up by early rock-and-roll groups which brought the progression to center-stage. (AllMusic) Rock music featuring the 50’s Progression was the popular music up through the 1990’s, and while rock has faded in the past 10 years, the chord progression has maintained its utility. Many frustrated musicians wonder how one chord progression can remain dominant through six decades. According to music psychology experts, the progression is simple and easy for the brain to process. (Reif) For example, the C major 50’s Progression consists of C major, A minor, F major, and G major.
Indeed, that was the case with my Father, whose famous line after seeing them on the Ed Sullivan Variety Show was, “They will never last”. Of course, I had to laugh a few years later when I heard my Dad humming the song “Michelle” by The Beatles. Needless to say, both have survived the passage of time, and their music has endured. Though there are many differences in the creative lives of The Beatles and Mozart, when compared, even the most ardent music fan would be surprised to learn of the similarities that they also share. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was one of the most innovative musical composers and performers of his time.
That year Elvis had overdosed and got put in the hospital, thought Elvis did not die (Watson 84.) in 1977 Elvis had a heart attack in the bathroom of his mansion, He was quickly rushed to the hospital where they announced him dead at 2:30 pm (Watson 90, “Elvis.”) Elvis had died at the age of 42 because of the drugs that were in his life (“Elvis.”) To this day he is still a big music star, He is still the king of rock and roll (“Elvis.”) He is still valued more than ever since his death that many people still believe he is still alive and living in the upstairs of his house (Petersen, Watson 92.) August 16, 1977 is the day the KIng of rock and roll died
