David Leonhardt’s “Chance and Circumstance” is an intriguing story about Malcolm Gladwell and his outstanding achievements in the field of journalism. He goes further into Gladwells childhood, being raised by some accomplished parents. “His mother was a psychotherapist, and his father was a mathematician.” (Leonhardt 579). Leonhardt imposes this certain idea to the reader, the idea known as “chance”. Considering how gladwell had successful parents influenced his way to becoming a successful journalist was evidently by chance. He also continues on this topic, stating that, “he is instead a talented person who took advantage of singular opportunities” (Leonhardt579). I see myself similar to Malcolm Gladwell not in a journalistic point of view, but in the art of music. Music has

Jimi Hendrix, probably one of the greatest guitarists of all time, in 1968 covered "All along the watchtower," a song originally written and performed a few months earlier by Bob Dylan. Even though Hendrix 's admiration for Dylan 's work was well known , his choice to cover a song belonging to a completely different music genre is emblematic. So why did Hendrix decide to cover Bob Dylan 's "All along the watchtower?" In this paper, I will argue that Hendrix 's cover of Dylan 's "All along the watchtower," thanks to its lyrics and sound dynamic, optimally conveys his anti-war and anti-violence beliefs.

They really did think he has unique voices with his music, especially the rhythm in his voices. Jimi Hendrix desires to be better every day, and he very rarely satisfied with his work. He really put himself into the music, his friends around him often see him with his guitar all the time. They never see Jimi Hendrix without his guitar in hands. Everywhere he went, he has a guitar with him, and he was very happy when he playing his music. I think this is the unique of Jimi Hendrix. The reason why he was musically and culturally an anomaly might because of he only wants to communicate with people through his music, but not by talking with

The members of the Monkees were very influential in the development of television and music during the 1960’s.
William B. Sargent was born in 1964 to Donald and Ethlyn Sargent. Bill grew up in Littleton on Pleasant Street where his parents still reside.

In 1968, both Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated, leaving the United State in a state of uncertainty. With a nation in need, the Woodstock Music and Art fair arose in 1969, standing against the background of the past year (Evans and Kingbur 20). Max Yasgur, a dairy farmer who leased his farm to the Woodstock promoters, once said to the millions of fans at the festival, “The important thing that you've proven to the world is that... a half a million young people can get together and have three days of fun and music and have nothing but fun and music, and I God Bless You for it!” (Gerdes 4), and that is exactly what the crowd of more than 400,000 fans did. A great deal of people will argue that Woodstock was nothing
