Elvis Presley WAS NOT A RACIST "The only thing Negroes can do for me is buy my records and shine my shoes." Words attributed to Elvis Presley. Long-standing urban myths and rumors are often the most difficult to dispel, to be sure. And I've had my share of snickers, head shakes, eye rolls and inevitably this quote thrown at me when I've mentioned Elvis Presley's name on my list of early musical influences which include Chuck Berry, Sam Cooke, Nat King Cole, B.B. King, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye and Tom Jones. The thing is, Elvis never said those words. The simple fact is they first appeared in print in April 1957 in "How Negroes Feel About Elvis," a story in Sepia magazine. The article quotes an anonymous, non-confirmed "person on the street" who said that he had HEARD that Presley had uttered those words. The rest is history. But thank goodness for the internet and the Age of Information: Elvis Presley; a racist. Quite frankly, it never made any sense to me. How could this man who owed so mu ...
Today we remember rock guitarist Robert Joseph "Bob" Weston (1 November 1947 – 3 January 2012) a British musician best known for his brief role as guitarist and songwriter with the rock band Fleetwood Mac. Weston was born in Plymouth on 1 November 1947 and moved to London in the mid-1960s. He joined a band called The Kinetic, and supported Jimi Hendrix and Chuck Berry at concerts in France. Weston was recruited into the Fleetwood Mac line-up in late 1972 as replacement for the recently sacked guitarist Danny Kirwan. Together with fellow new band member, vocalist Dave Walker, Fleetwood Mac recorded the Penguin album in January 1973. Weston's contribution to the album was mainly as a lead guitarist alongside Bob Welch, but he stood out thanks to his slide guitar, especially on "Remember Me", and his accomplished harmonica and banjo playing. He also sang with Christine Mcvie on the song "Did You Ever Love Me", and wrote the instrumental that closed the album, "Caught in the Rain". Later in 1973 Dave Walke ...
In 1968, Jimi Hendrix and his manager Michael Jeffery bought a newly defunct nightclub called The Generation located at 52 W 8th Street in New York’s Greenwich Village — a venue that Hendrix had frequented for impromptu performances and late-night jam sessions. The Generation had been known for live acts as diverse and legendary as Big Brother & the Holding Company, B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Dave Van Ronk, and Sly & the Family Stone. Instead of renaming the club and continuing with the live venue business model (Jimi’s original vision for the project), advisors Eddie Kramer and Jim Marron convinced Hendrix to convert the space into a professional recording studio. Architect, John Storyk, designed each structural detail, and from there the origins of New York’s famed Electric Lady Studios were born. It would be the only artist-owned recording studio in existence at the time. “In 1968, artists just didn’t own their own studios — not even The Beatles,” says Storyk, “Yet another trail blaze .. ...

Stephen Lawrence "Steve" Winwood was born on May 12,1948 in Handsworth, Birmingham, England. At the age of 14, Winwood joined the Spencer Davis Group. As a teenager, Winwood played organ and guitar, backing blues singers such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley on their Uk tours. In April 1967, he formed Traffic with Jim Capaldi, Dave Mason & Chris Wood. In 1968 Winwood played the organ on the song "Voodoo Chile" on the Jimi Hendrix album Electric Ladyland. He formed the supergroup Blind Faith in 1969 with Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Ric Grech.
Gotta love when studying for your Final Exam consists of listening to Chuck Berry, Beatles, Motown, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Ramones, Nirvana, Pearl Jam and of course old school MTV and the 80s: Michael Jackson, Madonna and Bruce Springsteen. Pretty sure I'm gonna have some weird dreams tonight after all these videos and lyrics swirling in my head.

World's Top 100 Metal Guitarists Guitar world 100 greatest metal guitarists of all time: 1 Jimi Hendrix - Can't argue with this. With his output cut short, he could have been much greater. 2 Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers Band - Cetainly the greatest slide guitarist ever. Another career cut short. 3 B.B. King - I assume he's this high because of influence and what he accomplished in a long career. Technically, he's got the blues chops but doesn't really waver much from that. 4 Eric Clapton - I probably differ in opinion from many, but to me, Clapton peaked on Dekek and the Dominos and his solo records have been spotty at best. He was great for a time but never really blows me away. 5 Robert Johnson - Blues legend. Recordings aren't very listenable. Created so much but relatively unheard. I have trouble with this only because he really wasn't as good as many below him but without him, they wouldn't exist. 6 Chuck Berry - Should be no. 1 in my opinion. Created rock and roll guitar. People still try to ...
One I realized immediately that I left off, Rod Stewart, and of course, *** Jagger, Ozzie Osbourne, The Boss, Jon Anderson of Yes, Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Bob Seger, Elvis, Stevie Wonder, Steve Winwood, Lou Graham of Foreigner, B.B King, Little Richard, Eric Burden, Keith Relf of The Yardbirds, Al Stewart, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, Jim Morrison, Chuck Berry, James Brown, and I'm sure there are a few more. We were *** lucky to have grown up with all these great talents, feel sorry for todays' kids who have such mediocre music and non descript artists to listen to.
# This is RS magazine's list of the 20 greatest artists of all time. # 1. The Beatles - Makes sense. Some of the most influential albums of all time are the works of these lads. What else can you say? # 2. Bob Dylan - I could argue with this one. He's a legend, but number 2? # 3. Elvis Presley - Very successful, the king of rock n roll of course, but he was very controlled by his manager. # 4. Rolling Stones - Often called 'Anti-Beatles', definitely top 5 # 5. Chuck Berry - Probably invented Rock n Roll. Deserves to be here. # 6. Jimi Hendrix - First guitar god, I believe. Revolutionary player # 7. James Brown - Godfather of soul, is it? Great showman # 8. Little Richard - American Rock & Roll/R & B singer and pianist # 9. Aretha Franklin - I think she was the first woman to be inducted into the rock n Roll Hall of fame. I'll look that up later. # 10. Ray Charles - American R&B singer and pianist # 11. Bob Marley - Jamaican reggae singer # 12. The Beach Boys - Some of the catchiest songs I ever heard. # 1 ...

Not sure if you're aware of this, but US President Barack Obama proclaimed June 2011 'Black Music History Month', and even mentioned rock in the official proclamation: "The artistic depth of soul, rock and roll, and hip-hop not only bring together people across our Nation, but also energize and shape the creativity of artists around the world", it reads.

King, Slash (Guns N' Roses), Chuck Berry, Prince and number 1: Jimi Hendrix. Sooo... What do you all think? Who's on YOUR list? Let us know in the comments.
DIED NOV 15 2011, Mark "Moogy" Klingman (September 7, 1950 – November 15, 2011) was an American musician and songwriter. He was a founding member of Todd Rundgren's band Utopia, and later became a solo recording artist, bandleader and songwriter. He released two solo recordings, and his songs have been covered by artists as wide ranging as Johnny Winter, Carly Simon, James Cotton, Thelma Houston, Eric Clapton, Barry Manilow and Guns N' Roses. He played on stage with Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Luther Vandross, Lou Reed, Jeff Beck and Allan Woody & Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule. Other than Rundgren, his longest musical association may have been with Bette Midler, whom he served as band leader and who adopted for her signature song "(You Gotta Have) Friends", composed by Klingman and William "Buzzy" Linhart

Musically, who are your inspirations? — Brian May, Jimi Hendrix and Chuck Berry
Today was the birthday of Stephen "Stevie" Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990), who was an American guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. Often referred to by his initials SRV, Vaughan is best known as a founding member and leader of the Texas rock & blues band Double Trouble. With drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon, they ignited the blues revival of the 1980s. With a career spanning seven years, Vaughan and Double Trouble consistently sold out concerts while their albums frequently went gold. Vaughan's music took root in blues, rock, and jazz. He was influenced by the work of artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert Collins, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry, and Muddy Waters. Vaughan was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Stevie started playing guitar at the age of seven and soon after formed several bands that occasionally performed in local nightclubs.

Eric Burdon has one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in rock and roll. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1994, and hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time, Burdon’s music forged new territory while also topping the charts for more than five decades. He has shared the stage with legends such as Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Witherspoon, Otis Redding and Bruce Springsteen, and was recently cited by cutting edge musicians like Patti Smith and Iggy Pop in their personal top tens. Highly prolific, Burdon has released nearly 50 records in those 50 years, as front man of The Animals, and WAR, and simply as Eric Burdon. Through the changing sounds and genres, what remains constant is his courage as an artist to explore new sounds, leading into new territory with his unrivalled and unique voice. As front man and driving force of the British Invasion band The Animals, Burdon helped shape rock and roll’s DNA, and his imposing yet soulful vocals are the d ...

Today's lesson from Professor Poster: The first Miami Pop Festival took place May 18–19, 1968. An estimated 100,000 people attended this concert, which was promoted by Richard O'Barry & Michael Lang, later famous as promoter of Woodstock. Bands featured at the festival included Steppenwolf, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Mothers of Invention, Blue Cheer and the Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Jimi Hendrix performed "Fire", "Foxy Lady", "Getting my heart back together" and "Purple Haze". Although far from his most famous performance, his appearance at the Miami Pop Festival is seen by fans as one of his best. The song "Rainy Day, Dream Away" was also written in response to the cancellation of the Sunday installment of the festival due to, you guessed it- rain. Chuck Berry, The Blues Image, Pacific Gas and Electric and Three Dog Night also performed. The opening act on the main stage on Saturday was a little-known group called The Package and the closing act on that same stage was Jimi Hendrix. There were ...

How irrelevant are the Grammys? The following is a partial list of artists who have never gotten a Grammy: Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Queen, Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks, Janis Joplin, The Supremes, Chuck Berry(!) - and who has won? Milli Vanilli, Christopher Cross ( remember him- one album and then poof!) The Chipmunks, The Vaudeville Band ( one song-Winchester Cathedral), Will Smith (!!!), Baja men ( who cares who let the dogs out?) Conclusion: The Grammys are meaningless...
It's black history month. Someone should do a tribute to all the black rockers in history. Sure. poets, politicians, freedom fighters, literary giants, inventors, scientists, doctors, etc. are VERY important to highlight. but what about the rockers? The ones who DARED to claim their spot by crossing over into the rock world? (they never crossed over. if you ask me) Got any history making favorites other than the obvious: Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Prince, Living Colour, Slash, Lenny Kravitz, Phil Lynot, Tina Turner, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Ben Harper, Bad Brains. (it's Monday & my brain hasn't woke up yet.)
VIII.  Symbiosis   Jimi Hendrix: Known for his amazing guitar style and boisterous antics on stage, Jimi Hendrix was to become the focal point of Woodstock and arguably, the best electric guitar player the world has ever heard.  Born into poverty, Jimi did not have an easy life growing up. His parents divorced when he was young and his mother died when he was in his teens. This all led him to search for an outlet to his pains. At about the age of fourteen, Hendrix was able to pick up a one-string acoustic guitar, which inspired him to play like Muddy Waters and Lightnin’ Hopkins. His father eventually bought him an electric guitar and he learned to play by ear from listening and practicing endless hours to the likes of Chuck Berry.  After a short stint in the military, he was discharged for being an incompetent soldier because all he wanted to do was play his guitar. Upon leaving the Army, he moved to Nashville where he attempted to secure a band that could keep up with his playing style. He was abl ...

Time for a small confession: I secretly love Kirk Hammett's solos and overuse of the wah-wah, he's not that bad. If you wanna talk about overrated guitarists, Slash is. The best guitarist when it comes to delivering the feel, passion, showmanship, style, charisma, and simply "rocking out" is Jimi Hendrix. The best guitarist when it comes to technicality, complicated, exotic solos, riffs, and pure ear pleasure is Chuck Schuldiner. I was thinking of including John Pettrucci and Chuck Berry in this, but I don't know why I didn't. - Rocky

*** On the album "Hendrix in the West", Jimi Hendrix does excellent covers of the Beatles "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" but he does an awesome cover of Chuck Berry's classic, "Johnny B. Goode". Hendrix closes out the set by playing a great cover of Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes". Man, Jimi Hendrix is a rock God. Plain and simple.
I think the five most influential rock guitarists are Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Edward Van Halen, Tony Iommi and George Harrison. Discuss--and you DON'T have to be a guitarist to weigh in.
Dear Guitar World readers, Thank you for providing more empirical evidence of how & why technical musical skill is on a continuing downward spiral. Eddie Van Halen? Greatest Guitarist of all time??? The fact that EVH beat Dimebag Darrel shows a majority of so called axe players can't tell a masterpiece from a heaping pile of dung.lol dung.but no time for humor now...so to make myself feel like I at least tried to help the dire situation I will list my own top 10. Rhythm Guitarist are ineligible because they're barely guitarist to begin with, sorry rhythm guys, learn to sing with strings and deal with it. 1 Jimi Hendrix...cause he did stuff they still can't figure out til this day, who else did that.nobody. A supreme example of emotion & soul in single note form. 2 Stevie Ray Vaughan.he took jimi and built on it, amazing became better. 3 B.B. King ..self explanatory. 4 Chuck Berry...because this list would be much shorter without his licks spreading out through time. 5 Dimebag Darrel...the king of heavy m ...

Critics and fans agree, Redd Kross are back and delivering their signature brand of genuine rock 'n roll with a vengence. “A purer explication of rock and roll's essence would've required Jimi Hendrix and Keith Moon playing Chuck Berry songs while James Brown's sweat poured from the sky.” - SF We...
Just discovered that The Saville Theatre in Covent Garden (1931, which, at the time, seated up to 1,426) was designed by my grandfather, Leslie Scott Slaughter with Bertie Crewe. It was leased by Brian Epstein in the 60s and is where The Beatles filmed the videos of "Hello, Goodbye". Jimi Hendrix, Fats Domino, The Bee Gees, The Who, Pink Floyd, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Elton John, Chuck Berry, Harry Secombe and Leonard Rossiter all played there too. Fascinating!

This Day in Music: May 31st 1961, Chuck Berry opened Berry Park, an amusement complex near St. Louis. The park had its own zoo, golf course and ferris wheel. 1968, Working on what would become “The White Album,” The Beatles added overdubs of bass and vocals on “Revolution.” After numerous overdubs had been added, the final six minutes of the song evolved into chaotic jamming, with Lennon repeatedly shouting “alright” and Yoko Ono speaking random phrases. The jam became the basis for “Revolution 9.” 1969, Jimi Hendrix was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, on sale for 35 cents. 1975, During a press conference held at the 5th Avenue Hotel in New York City to announce The Rolling Stones’ forthcoming American tour, the Stones themselves came down the street playing live on the back of a flat-bed truck. 1976, The Who gave themselves a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the loudest performance of a rock band at 120 decibels, when they played at Charlton Athletic Footb ...
