The “Rolling Stones”, the “Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World”, or the “Stones” are all names of which the influential bad boys of Rock ‘n’ Roll go by. The well deserved and hardly argued title of the “Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World” was first bestowed upon them in the 1960s. Although there were other Rock ‘n’ Roll bands rising to fame at this time, almost simultaneously, the Rolling Stones graciously accepted the title and carried it to the top along with them, taking no breaks from the spotlight. The Rolling Stones left a lasting impression on the music industry as well as on most, if not all, of the people that have had the pleasure of enjoying their music, including myself. I was first captivated by the Stones as a kid
Elvis Presley: The King of Rock n’ Roll Elvis Presley is one of the most influential artists in American music history. He revolutionized the music industry with his style and charisma. Elvis was able to bring together elements of country, blues, and gospel, stir in a little rhythm, and create a totally new and fresh sound. His music and famous dance moves not only shaped modern music, but he is also the reason behind the pandemonium that surrounds world famous musicians. In a sense, Elvis Presley created today’s pop culture.
From the King of Rock, to the original British boy band, a heavy metal band from Los Angeles, the band that introduced 90’s to grunge rock, and finally the original gangster rappers. These artists have influenced and shaped generations of musicians across a wide variety of musical styles. With over fifty number one hit songs and countless platinum albums between them, they represent some of the most talented musicians of the
They created a “culture explosion” when they first released their first song. Since February of 1964 when the beatles showed their music to the souls of America, everyone was hooked. The Beatles transformed not just the United States form of music but the entire world’s perspective on Rock and Roll; by their attitudes, style and sound. John Lennon and Paul McCartney are very famous names that have come up in many different topics. These guys are the vocalists behind the Beatles.
Holly was inspired by this and learned many ways to sway the crowd and get them to fall in love with his entertaining music. They got a contract in Nashville for Decca, after they performed on the local radio station KDVA. They also released several songs as Holly in the Hills before their contract (Romanowski & George-Warren, 2001). The bands start took a little longer than they expected, but they were happy when they got their start. The band had to think of a name before they got their break.
When Strait made the album Blue Clear Sky, he made a very rare accomplishment. The album made it onto both country and pop charts. It was played on pop radio stations too (Carlin, 2006). This crossover let fans of other genres hear George’s songs. All in all, Strait had a very triumphant career.
As he grew he got together with two other guitarist and with the song I walk the line they came together then it had became a million selling record. What encouraged this song was before he joined anyone he kicked his drug addiction. Another hit that he got because of kicking his alcohol and drug addiction was “The Ring of Fire” he says many lines but he keeps repeating the line “i overcame the ring of fire” as in he overcame his drug and alcohol use. He was signed with a record label called columbia records, at the time they would only sign very high quality stars that were making top
Music has been the blood of our pop culture since the first signs of sounds made by our cavemen ancestors. It had been a huge influence in our culture like our lifestyles, fashion, attitudes, and language. But one genre in music has created an impact in our history, especially the American history for it paved way to the Civil Rights movement. It was through combining African American and white music that created a spark in that movement, and without The King none of this spark would have ever light up in the first place. And this “King” is none other than, the king of rock and roll, Elvis Aron Presley.
Most Influential In this large group of amazing musicians there are a few that I believe rise above the rest. Not only on the influence they had on music but on the influence they have on people 's lives still today. There is a lot of people in the music industry, and it takes a lot to stand out in the crowd of music. Music takes a lot of work, Your life could be made by a single song or it could be made of a whole career of lifetime of releases. Making music can work right away but you can 't be stopped by setbacks,minor or major, and this is my reason for the first person i believe to be one of the most influential musicians of all time, Kurt Cobain.
I also think they are one of the most influential bands ever. Especially in the hard rock and heavy metal genre. Because of this they are one of the most important bands, if not the most important band of all time in this genre. I have actually seen them live in Oslo when they where touring for the album 13. For me Tony is the greatest guitarist ever, with his riffs and style of playing.
