Boston's Tom Scholz Reveals His 10 Essential Albums: 1) Jeff Beck: Truth 2) Led Zeppelin: I 3) Led Zeppelin: II 4) James Gang: Rides Again Tom Scholz: "I knew Jeff Beck's Truth album inside out. The same was true of the first two Led Zeppelin albums and Joe Walsh's James Gang's Rides Again." 5) Iron Butterfly: Heavy "In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida is hideous, but this album was really cool. The last cut was called the 'Iron Butterfly Theme.' It was an instrumental, in a very strange time signature. That was the song that got me interested in playing guitar." 6) Kinks: Greatest Hits 7) The Yardbirds: Having a Rave Up 8) The Who: Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy 9 The Who: The Who Sell Out "My interest in pop music was really limited. If it hadn't been for The Kinks and The Yardbirds and The Who, back in the '60s, I probably never would have gotten involved in music. Those first Kinks singles were amazing. 'All Day and All of the Night' and 'You Really Got Me' were real favorites." 10) Blue Cheer: Blue Cheer "Very few people ...

Heavy metal Meaning Hard rock music, usually electric guitar-based and always loud. Origin 'Heavy metal' seems at first a strange label to apply to a form of music. However, a little investigation into the symbolism behind the name reveals it to be a rather obvious choice. 'Heavy' was coined in the beatnik era of the 1950s to mean serious or profound and the term 'heavy music' was then and later applied to music in that vein. It's clear to see this meaning of heavy is derived from the usual meaning, that is, weighty or massive. Okay, that's 'heavy' explained but why should a form of music be called metal? Well, most metals are heavy, especially the metals favoured by the bands who played that genre and used metals in their names, for example Led Zeppelin, Iron Butterfly and Quicksilver Messenger Service (quicksilver is mercury). Also, the term 'heavy metals' in the chemical sense includes mercury, lead and cadmium, which have just the right image of toxicity to suit the musical style. So, both 'heavy' and ...

My generation lived the Vietnam War and Flower Power with more intensity than America. Because we, the teenagers of those years, were trying harder to build an America on our own. We did not have Levi's jeans and shirts, we were forbidden to wear long hair and would receive a banana for Easter and one for Christmas. But we knew by heart all the songs: Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Santana, Jethro Tull, Iron Butterfly, Slade. Just name it and we knew it! We did not have clubs, but our parties gave birth to untainted love, that, in time, turned into strong friendship. We were the ones to build our America in a hidden corner of the schoolyard where a fair-golden-haired, blue-eyed girl recreated all the tunes ever: Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Donovan. Universal Soldier... I cried when Vietnam became communist. It was not my war, but it was then when a myth collapsed for the first time. And it was to collapse for many times from that day on... That's why OUR America, that America ...
