The last time Sam Hartman played in Port Alfred, a sold out crowd enjoyed an extended playlist and Talk of the Town had this to say:THE Little Theatre in Wharf Street has become a must-be venue for live music again, considering the success of each of three recent shows, the latest being a Bob Dylan tribute by Sam Hartman. Hartman, who is originally from the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, moved down to Plettenberg Bay a few years ago and now plays as a permanent entertainer at the popular and vibrant Enrico Restaurant in Keurbooms. Hartman recently visited Port Alfred and entertained at the Little Theatre with a fun and lively show where guests could travel back in time with iconic songs from Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Louis Armstrong, Neil Young and others. The Hartman show was completely sold out, and was a fun evening of dinning and listening to music surrounded by fiends. Guests enjoyed a delicious two-course meal comprising of a hearty and perfectly baked lasagne and a mouth-watering berry-filled pavlova. The d ...

On this day in 1967 the first issue of Rolling Stone Magazine was published in San Francisco. It featured a photo of John Lennon on the cover, dressed in army fatigues while acting in his recent film, How I Won the War and the first issue had a free roach clip to hold a marijuana joint. The name of the magazine was compiled from three significant sources: the Muddy Waters song, the first rock ‘n’ roll record by Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.

THOUGHTS FROM AN AGING PIZZA EVANGELIST THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN' Published: October 26, 2014 8:00AM Anyone in their mid to late 60s or older will remember the above words of a rock song written and sung by Bob Dylan in 1963. I was a child of the 1950s and an adult of the 1960s. I was married to the former Nancy Grindstaff on July 16, 1963. We just recently celebrated our 51st wedding anniversary this past July. The M '60s were groovy and tumultuous times in which to live. I would like to take you on a TBT (throw back Thursday) journey and reminisce just a few highlights of the 1960s. Unlike today, this was a time of "Camelot" in the White House. A very young and handsome Prince had just been elected President of The United States. A stunning First Lady and two adorable young children also graced the Presidential domicile. Tragically, "Camelot" came crashing down on Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot and killed the Prince. And then the very next day, Oswald himself was sh ...
Grants recording session at Henson sound studio formally A&M records. What you hear is Grant performing his blind audition song in the recording booth to the right. What's pretty cool about all this is that he is standing on the same grounds as some of the music greats.

Many of the recording industry's greatest stars have recorded albums and videos at this studios, among them The Rolling Stones, John Lennon, George Harrison, Van Morrison, The Doors, Eric Clapton, Styx, The Carpenters, The Police, The Moody Blues, Oingo Boingo, Soundgarden, U2, Kiss, Tom Petty, Metallica, No Doubt, Rage Against The MacHine, Dr. Dre, Daft Punk, Shakira, Pearl Jam, Lady Gaga, Juanes and Justin Timberlake. How cool is that?

Thinking about great contemporary lyricists like Bob Dylan, Elton John, Jackson Browne, Billy Joel, or John Lennon, and realizing that America's youth will grow up singing "Them baggy sweat pants and Reeboks with the strap...She turned around and gave that big booty a smack...She hit the floor...Next thing you know...Shorty got low low low low low low low" *smh*

I'm absolutely blown away by what I'm hearing. Generally, I don't consider myself a fan of folk music, but Sixto Rodriguez's 1971 sophomore album, "Coming from Reality" is one of the best albums no one's ever heard. Rodriguez's lyrics are true Dylan-esque poetry. Many of the songs feature lush orchestration, and while some if it borders on melodramatic Phil Spector-like self-indulgence, I can forgive it as being simply a product of its time. "Sandrevan Lullaby/Lifestyles" is one of the most moving, haunting songs I've ever heard, while "Cause" is a song that Bob Dylan should be envious of. Lastly, I've got to mention the catchy mid-tempo bluesy rocker, "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour" which sounds like a song John Lennon could have written around the time of the White Album! 8-)
Music History For 10th May 1960, The Silver Beetles (John Lennon, Paul Mccartney, George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe, and Tommy Moore) auditioned for promoter Larry Parnes and singer Billy Fury for a job as Fury's backing group. Parnes was also looking for backing groups for his lesser-known acts, and The Silver Beetles were selected as backing group for singer Johnny Gentle's upcoming tour of Scotland. The group had changed its name from 'The Beatals' to 'The Silver Beetles' after Brian Casser (of Cass and the Cassanovas) remarked that the name 'Beatals' was "ridiculous". He suggested they use the name 'Long John and the Silver Beetles', but John Lennon refused to be referred to as 'Long John'. 1963, The Rolling Stones recorded the Chuck Berry song 'Come On', at Olympic Studios, London. This the bands first release was issued on the 7th June 1963 by Decca Records. 1964, Bob Dylan arrived in Britain for his first major UK tour including a show at London's Royal Festival Hall on the 17th of this month. 1965 ...

This older man named Havey helped me as soon as I was by the display. While I was trying out the glasses I told him that I am a huge fan of John Lennon, he said. " I actually owned the eyes wear shop where I met John and prescribed his glasses. He came up to me and introduced himself and yoko..." he stops to reminisce "He was easy to get along with, and very near sighted." he also added "John took me to eat with him and Yoko after his appointment.the guy love tempura!

The Beatles in 1965 - John Lennon's Best Original Songs of '65 Including "Help!" & "In My Life" While all of the songs that John Lennon and/or Paul Mccartney wrote were credited to Lennon/McCartney, the truth is that most of their songs were written mainly by one or the other. What follows are the best songs (in my opinion) that The Beatles recorded in 1965 which were written by Lennon. "Ticket To Ride" was a remarkable song to be released as a single in April 1965. It had a sound which was more "heavy" than people were used to hearing at that time. It had a new "emotional weight" to it that previous Beatles songs mostly lacked. The press at the time even called it "uncommercial" although it did go to in both the UK and the US (as did everything else The Beatles released at this time.) "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" is another example of the growing maturity and expanding sound of The Beatles (and Lennon in particular.) This is probably the most "Bob Dylan-esque" song The Beatles ever recorded, Dylan ...

Born today in 1943: George Harrison, lead guitarist for The Beatles. Although John Lennon and Paul Mccartney were the band's primary songwriters, most of their albums included at least one Harrison composition, including "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Here Comes the Sun" and "Something", which became the Beatles' second-most-covered song. Harrison's earliest musical influences included Big Bill Broonzy, George Formby and Django Reinhardt; Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry and Ry Cooder were significant later influences. By 1965 he had begun to lead the Beatles into folk rock through his interest in the Byrds and Bob Dylan, and towards Indian Classical Music through his use of the sitar on "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)". After the band's break-up in 1970, Harrison released the triple album All Things Must Pass, from which two hit singles originated. He also organized the 1971 Concert for Bangladesh with Ravi Shankar, a precursor for later benefit concerts such as Live Aid. Harrison was a music and film pr ...

Bands that passed on playing at Woodstock Declined invitations and missed connections Bob Dylan, in whose "backyard" the festival was held, was never in serious negotiation. Instead, Dylan signed in mid-July to play the Isle of Wight Festival of Music, on August 31. Dylan set sail for England on Queen Elizabeth 2 on August 15, the day the Woodstock Festival started. His son was injured by a cabin door and the family disembarked. Dylan, with his wife Sara, flew to England the following week. Dylan had been unhappy about the number of hippies piling up outside his house in the nearby town of Woodstock.[31] The Beatles/John Lennon:[32] There are two scenarios as to why The Beatles did not perform. The first is that promoters contacted John Lennon to discuss a Beatles performance at Woodstock, and Lennon said that the Beatles would not play unless there was also a spot at the festival for Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band, whereupon he was turned down.[33][unreliable source?] The website claims the more likely expl ...

Pete Seeger, the legendary folk pioneer, civil rights champion, social activist, environmentalist, and much, much more passed away last night in New York City. He was 94 years old. Seeger was a titan both inside the music industry and outside of it, during a career that began in 1939 and continued until this year. Writer or co-writer of such songs as "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?," 'If I Had A Hammer," and "Turn, Turn, Turn," Seeger was one of the most important and iconic musicians who ever lived. As Seeger's friend John W. Whitehead wrote in the Huffington Post while remembering him today: "Long before the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, Jim Hendrix or Bob Dylan, there was Pete Seeger, a lone ranger fighting injustice with little more than a five-string banjo in hand and a gift for putting words to music. Unarguably one of the most important musical influences of the 20th century, Seeger helped to lay the foundation for American protest music, singing out about the plight of everyday working folks an ...
No.two hundred albums in and Led Zeppelin has yet to make the list... But neither has Cream! I know, I shouldn't be all negative, so I won't be.

When I started listening to the radio, I'd hear it again, and call it "that song". It took a while to figure out what it was called, and who sang it.

December 6th: On this Day 1949, American blues artist, Leadbelly died. Huddie William Ledbetter wrote many songs including 'Goodnight Irene', ‘Cotton Fields’, 'The Rock Island Line', and ‘The Midnight Special'. Leadbelly was jailed several times for fights and knife related incidents, he was once jailed for shooting a man dead during an argument over a woman. 1961, John Lennon, Paul Mccartney, George Harrison, and Pete Best met with Brian Epstein for further discussions about his proposal to manage them. Epstein wanted 25% of their gross fees each week. He promises that their bookings will be better organised, more prestigious, and will expand beyond the Liverpool area. He also promises that they will never again play for less than £15, except for Cavern lunchtime sessions, for which he will get their fee doubled to ten pounds. Lennon, as leader of The Beatles, accepts on their behalf. 1962, During sessions for the 'Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan' album, Dylan recorded 'A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall' and ve ...
Tips & Warnings Sign up for voice lessons with a professional voice teacher. You may already have a great vocal sound and style, but a skilled teacher will show you how to breathe correctly when singing and improve your technique, helping protect your vocal cords from damage. Commit to a healthy lifestyle to help preserve your voice for the long haul. Avoid smoking and excessive caffeine consumption, as these wreak havoc on your vocal cords. Don't be afraid of having your personality show in your vocals. Being a great technical singer is not everything. There have been great vocalists (John Lennon and Bob Dylan are prime examples) who may not have been technically sound, but whose personal style and conviction helped them put over a song like no other. Attitude is important. Don't equate becoming a great singer with financial success. The music business has no shortage of extremely gifted singers struggling to make ends meet. Be sure that you're aiming to be a great singer for artistic reasons rather than ...
Since I have been a metalhead, 2 or so years have passed, I have listened to 100s of bands and 100s of vocalists. I like pure clean vocalists like Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Freddy Mercury, Ozzy, Robert Plant, and also the growlers like Randy Blythe, Johan Hegg, Nergal, Angela Gossow, and our black metal screamers like Abbath, Gaahl, Shagrath, and also the poweful voices of Lemmy, James Hetfield, Tom Araya, Dave Mustain, Paul Baloff, and many other vocalists. But this man, Ronnie James Dio! He had the most unique voice quality. A different kind of energy and power he had and never ever I have heard him singing a bit odd. I mean, you just get hypnotized while listening to him. He was one of a kind. No other singer you can find singing like him. Sometimes if I'm listening to some new band or any new song I get confused depicting the vocalists but Dio had its own voice quality. It was clean, heavy, powerful and aggressive! And he was also a great lyricist! True heavy metal man we can say. Wish you were alive...

Back in the day, Nov. 28th: 1929, Born on this day, Berry Gordy, founder of Motown Records, former boxer, composer, (wrote Jackie Wilson's 'Reet Petit'). 1962, Born on this day, Matt Cameron, drummer with Soundgarden, who joined Pearl Jam in 1998.

LOK Bob Dylan plays his tribute to John Lennon live for the first time. via
November 25 was a day for musical debuts, goodbyes and reunions. The Jimi Hendrix Experience headlined for the first time in the United Kingdom in an appearance at the Bag O' Nails club at 9 Kingly Street in the Soho section of London on that date in 1966. The audience members included John Lennon, Paul Mccartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend and Jimmy Page. At Royal Albert Hall in London on November 25, 1968, Cream performed for the last time. As the band members finished playing "I'm So Glad" and left the stage, the frenzied crowd chanted "God save the Cream." BBC television recorded and broadcast the performance as a documentary, which subsequently was released on a DVD titled "Farewell Concert." On that Thanksgiving day in 1976 at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, promoter Bill Graham staged the final concert by the Band, with a stellar roster of guest performers who included Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Stephen Stills, Paul Butterfield, Muddy Waters, Eri ...
1968 - Cream perform the first of two farewell shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall. 1969 - John Lennon returns his MBE (Member of the British Empire). “I am returning this MBE in protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam, and against “Cold Turkey” slipping down the charts.” 1971 - The surviving Doors tell Rolling Stone Magazine they plan to continue despite lead singer Jim Morrison’s death earlier in the year. But they are only able to produce two lackluster albums before pulling the plug. 1972 - Mark Duane Morton, lead guitarist for Lamb Of God, has a birthday. 1976 - “The Last Waltz,” The Band’s Thanksgiving Day farewell concert before splitting (for the first time), is at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco.

"It is a great challenge to be absorbed in love and kindness all the time and yet that is the very journey we are on. When we overcome the ego; love and kindness flow naturally. Where to begin? Serve others before you serve your self. Do something kind and generous for another person. If that is difficult, serve an animal. If that is difficult, serve a plant. Give it water. As Bob Dylan sang, "You've Got To Serve Somebody". I'm pretty sure he had is eyes set on Christ but isn't Christ in us all and the light of all creation? Isn't that the Divine Truth of all religion? The Light in me is the Light in you. John Lennon sang, "I am you as you are me". Dylan said "It might be the Devil or it might be the Lord" In Vedic symbolism, the ego is the devil and Pure Consciousness is the Lord. So, who are you going to serve? Perhaps its best to start with a plant and work your way up and out until you serve all of creation. May we all dig deeper and love just a little bit more." - Dr. Marc Halpern, Author of Healing ...

Bob Dylan's switch from acoustic to electric guitars in 1965 came second, ahead of the release of The Clash's debut single "White Riot" in 1977. The Beatles first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 was fourth and The Rolling Stones' release of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" placed fifth. Releases and performances by Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, John Lennon and Led Zeppelin were also included in the Top 10.

John Lennon may have been a great songwriter But he's not better than bob Dylan In my opinion Bob Dylan songwriter is deeper poetics And his storytelling is sometimes beyond comprehension So I'm sorry not sorry Dylan Ill even go as far as to say he is better than Lennon/ McCartney Combined

"THE WISEST MEN FOLLOW THEIR OWN DIRECTION." - Euripides What did Thomas Edison, Vincent Van Gogh, Maya Angelou, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Steve Jobs, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Jimi Hendrix, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln and Malcolm X all have in common? What's shared by all of them- and key for many who we call "gifted" or "genius" is that their learning was highly self-directed. They didn't develop their most critical skills in schools, much of what they learned did not come directly from teachers, and wasn't measured by standardized test scores. Yet they were exceptional learners, who learned by imitation and absorption from talented people who went before them, then applied themselves tirelessly to what motivated and interested them. Steve Jobs went to college and quit after 6 months, though he stuck around the campus and took classes that interested him for awhile longer. Much that he learned after that came from work experience, independent study, collaboration with others and his own self-direct ...
I take that back. Bob Dylan singing about John Lennon is the one.
musically, who would you compare yourself to? John Lennon, Neil Young, Noel Gallagher, Bob Dylan?
LENNON IN A TAXI WITH DYLAN. A rare photo of John Lennon and Bob Dylan sharing a taxi in London in 1966.
T.S. Eliot, John Lennon, and Bob Dylan: Masters of Allusion, or Plagiarists? via
I heard something on the radio the other day, about a rock 'n roll "all-star team". The idea is simple: select your favorite musicians to fill each spot in a "supergroup". (Although I believe the best groups are made from a unique combination of artists that together, are greater than the sum of their parts; I'll play along...) *** Jagger-- VOCALS, harmonica, guitar, keyboards. (Active: 1961 - Present.) English singer, songwriter, frontman, and entertainer extraordinaire. Bob Dylan-- GUITAR, vocals, harmonica, keyboards. (1961 - Present.) The greatest American singer/songwriter of all-time. Period. Jimi Hendrix-- LEAD GUITAR, vocals. (1963 - 1970.) Legendary American musician & bandleader who revolutionized the role of electric guitar in popular music. RIP. Paul Mccartney-- BASS, vocals, guitar, keyboards, drums. (1957 - Present.) Ex-Beatle and one half (with John Lennon) of the greatest songwriting duo ever. [McCartney was also a "member" of Rolling Stone Magazine's 1969 hoax-supergroup, " The Masked Ma ...

Apple’s Think Different campaign got it right when they put the spotlight on a group of “misfits” in 1997 to prove those who accomplish big things, share a trait.

Brian Wilson is one of my heros. Right up there with John Lennon, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison. Happy 71st birthday Brian!
We are now open for the day. Sorry. My car would not start and I had to make other arrangements to get here. Just in used lps from Aretha Franklin, Sly & Robbie, David Bowie Van Morrision, Ian Hunter, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Psychedelic Furs, Boston, The Producers, Tom Petty, Hank Williams, Billie Holiday, Led Zeppelin, several old Blues compilations, John Lennon, Otis Redding, Queen, Rush, Roxy Music, Janis Joplin, Dire Straits plus others.
I wish people would stop idolizing celebrities. John Lennon was abusive to his children and unfaithful to his women. Jimi Hendrix was a violent drunk. Steve Jobs once denied paternity of his daughter and forced the mother to live on welfare. Bob Dylan is socially retarded, like an ornery Mr. Bean. Appreciate people for their work, but please, stop putting them on a pedestal. Chances are that they are normal, imperfect human beings like the rest of us, but unless we know them on a personal level it is silly to be attached to anything but their work, or art, or whatever it is they do.
Fun question! Here's my list: John Lennon, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Cormac Mccarthy, Janis Joplin, Mark Twain, Tom Waits, William Faulkner (I know, that's nine people. I have extra chairs at my table.)
I'm doing guest registration for orientation and the two "samples" registered were John Lennon and Bob Dylan
6/9 This day in music. 1964, During an evening session Bob Dylan recorded Mr. Tambourine Man at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City. This was the first session for the Another Side Of Bob Dylan, which saw Dylan recording fourteen original compositions that night. The Byrds later recorded a version of Mr. Tambourine Man that was released as their first single and reached No.1 on both the US & UK Chart. The Byrds' recording of the song was influential in initiating the musical subgenre of folk-rock, leading many contemporary bands to mimic its fusion of jangly guitars and intellectual lyrics in the wake of the single's success. 1964, 1967, Pink Floyd played two gigs in one day, the first at the College of Commerce in Hull, and then the UFO at The Blarney Club, Tottenham Court Road, London, England. 1972, Elvis Presley made entertainment history by performing 4 sold-out shows at New York's Madison Square Garden. George Harrison, John Lennon, David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Art Garfunkel were among music s ...
“Do do that voodoo that you do so well.” Sometimes I’ll see polls ranking the “greatest pop song writers of all time” and I’ll see names like Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Carole King, etc. They’re all good and have written some great songs, but Hello. Happy Birthday to the real “Greatest”, Cole Porter, 1891. Cole was born into relative wealth and as the only child, was constantly under the watch of mommy who taught him piano and violin. She frequently changed his birth year to make him look more precocious at recitals. He went to Yale and then Harvard where he attempted to study law. One of his professors took him aside and pointed him to the music building on campus and told him to go over there. When World War I broke out he went to Europe and joined the French Foreign Legion although there are some disputes about that. It is known that he had a portable piano designed that he could carry on his back and used it to entertain troops. After the war he stayed in Italy and lived a pre ...
6/6 This day in music... 1970, Syd Barrett played his first gig since leaving Pink Floyd at the Extravaganza 70, at London's Olympia Hall, England, backed by a band that included his old friend Floyd guitarist David Gilmour. Barrett baffled the audience (and his musicians) when he abruptly took off his guitar during the fourth number and walked off stage. 1970, 1971, John & Yoko jammed live on stage with Frank Zappa at The Filmore East in New York. Some of these recordings were released in 1972, on John Lennon's third post-Beatles album, Some Time in New York City. 1979, Def Leppard played at Crookes Workingman's Club in Sheffield. The gig was reviewed in UK music paper 'Sounds' and led to a recording contract with Phonogram Records. 1982, Tom Petty, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nicks and Jackson Browne all appeared at The Rose Bowl, Pasadena, California to a crowd of 85,000 fans at the six hour Peace Sunday, We Have A Dream antinuclear concert. Dylan was joined onstage with Joan ...

We came across this video and had to share, simply because it's two of the biggest legends in Music History in their youth and on drugs. It's Bob Dylan and John Lennon sharing a cab in London, smoking and...
5/8 This day in music. 1965, The filming of the promotional film for Bob Dylan’s 'Subterranean Homesick Blues' took place at the side of the Savoy Hotel in London. Actors in the background were Allen Ginsberg and Bob Neuwirth. This became one of the first 'modern' promotional film clips, the forerunner of the music video. The original clip was actually the opening segment of D. A. Pennebaker's film, Don't Look Back, a documentary on Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England. In the film, Dylan, who came up with the idea, holds up cue cards for the camera with selected words and phrases from the lyrics. The cue cards were written by Donovan, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Neuwirth and Dylan himself. While staring at the camera, he flipped the cards as the song played. 1965, 1967, Gerry And The Pacemakers announced they were splitting up, recognising they could no longer keep pace with the rapidly changing UK rock scene. 1969, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr signed a business management contract with Allen Klei ...
Dopestyler must be considered along side the likes of John Lennon and Bob Dylan as the all time greatest lyricists
Best lyricists of all-time would include: Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Nas, John Lennon, Leonard Cohen, Rodriguez, Stevie Wonder, & Paul Simon.

Mother's is paying top $$$ for your used records! We're paying extra for the following artists: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Grateful Dead, The Doors, John Lennon & Frank Zappa.
In the 1960's when USA was launching a war with Vietnam, the Civil Liberties and Peace Movement emerged. Jimi Hendrix wrote "Machine Gun", Phil Ochs wrote "I ain't marching anymore", Bob Dylan wrote "Blowin in the Wind", John Lennon wrote "Give Peace a Chance." The Doors wrote "Unknown Soldier". There is a global crisis going on, a war of an unprecedented kind. The land, water, people...everyone and everything is under attack. The artists in this day and age Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift...etc are singing about broken hearts and lost love. While Gangster Rap is preaching about *** thugs, drugs, violence." Louis Reil prophesied, "My people will sleep for 100 years, and when they awake, it will be the artists who give them back their spirits." I don't think he was talking about Dr. Dre or Britney Spears. What the world needs is a musical revolution.
OK here goes--- my semi annual rant--- Friends, you have heard me say that you can learn a lot about history from listening to folk music. This is true. AND, folk music has raised awareness of issues and even helped to generate change. Examples: Billie Holliday- (strange fruit), Phil Ochs-- small circle of friends, Peter Paul and Mary--If I had a Hammer, Bob Dylan-- blowing in the wind, Coven--One tin solider, John Lennon -- Give Peace a chance and too many to mention here. Well we have issues today that need some foot stompin' heart stirring music... but where is it? Where's the song for Love Who You Want-- for Ending the Wars in the middle east, for Saving the Planet? And, maybe we need to rewrite some of the old one to reflect todays' needs--- Like telling our government we actually want them to WORK for a living? Let's try this---(Thank you John and Yoko) "All we are saying... is get off your *** "
Poor Bo's Almanac for 2.19.13: 1940: William 'Smokey' Robinson was born in Detroit. 1964: A British company shipped a half ton of Beatle wigs to America. A reporter asked John Lennon how he felt about teens imitating them. Lennon replied, "They're not imitating us because we don't wear Beatle wigs." 1969: Johnny Cash heard Shel Silversteins's " A Boy Named Sue' at a songwriters party. Also attending were Graham Nash, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristoffererson & Joni Mitchell. 1972: Paul Mccartney released 'Give Ireland Back To The Irish' it was immediately banned by the BBC. Good day to mow, write, travel for pleasure.
1965, Pye Records announced that they'd signed 'the British Bob Dylan', when they added Donovan to the label. The Scottish singer-songwriter produced a series of hit albums and singles between 1965 and 1970 and became a friend of leading pop musicians including Joan Baez, Brian Jones, and The Beatles. He influenced John Lennon when he taught him a finger-picking guitar style in 1968.
had to chose one person off a list of 16 to write a paper on for my history class. I was having a hard time chosing so I chose Gloria Steinem simply because she has the same name as one of my horses. (Others on the list were Walt Disney, Bob Dylan, James Bond, Dalai Lama, Rosa Parks, John Lennon...)
We do this.We do that. We do rock.We do rap. We do jazz. We do funk and then classical.

Europe to New York Morrison of the Doors,Morrissey and Too $hort In short,the list is long and just goes on,yall. Re Cyclops, we unstoppable.

Bob Marley was the Third World's first pop superstar. He was the man who introduced the world to the mystic power of reggae. He was a true rocker at heart, and as a songwriter, he brought the lyrical force of Bob Dylan, the personal charisma of John Lennon, and the essential vocal stylings of Smokey Robinson into one voice. — Jann Wenner, at Marley's 1994 posthumous induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame! WHAT WOULD A JOHN LENNON INSPIRED TRIBUTE TO MARLEY SOUND LIKE?

It seems to me that in almost two generations, rap has never produced a songwriting talent on the order of a Stevie Wonder, John Lennon, Prince, Bob Dylan, or even Carole King. Am I right? And if so, why is that?

i'm starting to like my nhd project because of the music in the 60's and 70's. Thank you Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Peter Tosh.
As noted, BTE’s ultimate focus is on James Douglas Morrison, the real human being, as opposed to Jim Morrison, the mythic rock star. Still, we'll certainly address Jim’s place in the artistic pantheon. He’s obviously aligned with the greats. But back in the 1960s, musicians didn’t tend to openly discuss each other's work. This may have been due to competition, as well as the fact that they didn't have access to social media like we do today. So, for instance, we don't see many instances of Jim’s specific opinion of John Lennon, or Bob Dylan, or vice versa. What do you think Jim’s rock peers [Lennon, Dylan, Hendrix, Joplin, Jagger, etc] thought of him as a poet and vocalist/lyricist? [We mean as opposed to their personal opinion of him in general. Case in point: the provincial Lou Reed relating to Melody Maker how "dumb" he thought Jim "that silly Los Angeles person" was is not what we're after.] Can you cite any specific references? If you do and we utilize your shared information in our docum ...
XMAS STEW -Bowie did a duet with Bing Crosby, now Rod Stewart has an album of Christmas songs some of which Bing might have sang ! Couldn't imagine Bing being the singer for the Faces ! Bob Dylan has already done covers of Xmas songs. *** Jagger had turned down a role in the musical Annie, many years ago. He said he couldn't imagine being in such. Hope he sticks to his guns and won't do Christmas covers, unless they are Chuck Berry's Run Rudolph Run, already covered by Keith Richards, and John Lennon's Happy Xmas (War iIs Over). Wonder if Rockin' Robin's on Stewart album ? Ha ha. Maggie May must be turning in her grave, poor old bird.
In the first 12 pages of my thesis, I quote: Peter Singer, MLK Jr, Susan Thistlewaite, Maria Montessori, Reinhold Niebuhr, Walter Russell Bowie, Jergen Moltmann, Kenneth Ross, Pew Global Research, Martin Buber, Robert Frost, Jim Schley, Bob Dylan, Walter Brueggemann, John Lennon, and Rumi... sounds like it's time for a cigar, some beer, and some intellectual chatting.
Beiber *** he isn't an artist, he doesn't write his own songs. John Lennon, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Phil Collins are artists, look'em'up
A+D+A+M LAB4 Adam started his career firstly as a drummer (and a choir boy lol!) and then from the age of 19 worked as a programmer and then eventually head engineer /producer at an Oxford recording studio. It was there that he teamed up with Lez and joined his band M.A.D. For the next 3 years they experimented with how to get computers, sequencers and samplers to work as part of a live set. It was this experimentation in the days before Giga Bytes and Mhz that eventually lead to the birth of Lab4. After leaving Lab4 at the end of 2006 as well as playing drums for Maria Illet and Proteus, Adam worked on various studio projects including the Techno Industrial project ‘The Judas Coven’ which saw him take centre stage as lead vocalist where he instantly got described as the ‘Iggy Pop’ of the industrial scene and ‘The Horizontal Instrument’ which could be compared to Radiohead and Coldplay with a little Bob Dylan and John Lennon thrown in and mixed up with a little film score for good measure...

I'm curious. I really am. I wanna go through some of these conservative republican's music collections. I'd laugh my *** off at these hypocrites if they owned any John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, The Clash/Joe Strummer, Woodie Guthrie, CSN, Rage Against The MacHine etc.etc., Bands & artists who stood up for the average person and against the fascist right-wing agendas. That's one to ponder about.

What is wrong with the world? I'm watching The Voice at work right now and Blake Shelton keeps referring to the contestants as artists? Really? John Lennon was an artist. Chris Robinson is an artist. Bob Dylan is an artist in every sense of the word. Singing a karaoke version of Pat Benetar doesn't make you an artist. Then one kid decides to sing Justin Beiber and Blake says, "When you get into Beiber, those are some pretty big shoes to fill." Seriously. He said it with a straight face! I just don't know what to do with myself.

This Day In Music: October 26th 1958, Bill Haley and his Comets played the first rock 'n' roll concert in Germany. Over 7,000 rock 'n' roll fans turned the show into a riot. 1962, The Rolling Stones, (known as The Rollin' Stones), and consisting of Keith Richard, *** Jagger, Brian Jones, pianist Ian Stewart and drummer Tony Chapman recorded their first demo tape at Curly Clayton Studios in Highbury, London. They recorded three songs, Jimmy Reed's 'Close Together', Bo Diddlley's 'You Cant Judge A Book By The Cover' and Muddy Waters' 'Soon Forgotten.' 1965, Queen Elizabeth II invests The Beatles with their MBEs at Buckingham Palace, London. According to an account by John Lennon, the group smoked marijuana in one of the palace bathrooms to calm their nerves. Many former recipients gave their MBE's back in protest, to which John Lennon responded "Lots of people who complained about us receiving the MBE received theirs for heroism in the war, for killing people." He continued: "We received ours for entertain ...
Love NY, I spent last weekend visiting my friend Vinnie Bell and his wife Bonnie. Vinnis designed and invented guitars for the Dan Electro Guitar company during the 1960's and the 1970's. He designed the amp in the guitar case, the electric sitar, the electric 12 string Bellzouki, and many other instrument for Nat Daniels of Dan Electro. Vinnie has recorded with Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Tony Bennet, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Anthrax, and many others. He showed me the spot where Frank Sinatra feel down on bended knee in laughter over a Tommy Tedesco/Vinnie Bell joke. I actually got down on one knee and played a prototype bellzouki guitars in that spot and my guitar playing never sounded so good. It was nice to see Vinnie and Boonie, we had much fun telling stories and hanging out with Dan Electro prototype guitars. Thanks Vinnie, Thanks Bonnie, for a great weekend of memories
Really diggin' this new Bob Dylan song called, Roll On John! Bob Dylan's tribute to John Lennon. In fact the whole album is awesome!
I don't believe in Beatles I just believe in me Like · · Share · 6 hours ago via mobile · Quote from Ferris Buellers Day Off Quoting from John Lennon himself 6 minutes ago · Unlike · 1 John Lennon describes God as "a concept by which we measure our pain". In the second, Lennon lists many idols that he does not believe in, ending by stating that he just believes in himself (individuality) and Yoko (love). The idols he lists are: magic, I Ching, Bible, tarot, Hitler, Jesus, Kennedy (which he also sang as "Kennedys", referring to both John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy), Buddha, mantra, Gita, yoga, kings, Elvis, Zimmerman (Bob Dylan) and Beatles. The final section describes Lennon's change since the break-up of The Beatles. He states that he is no longer the "Dreamweaver" or "The Walrus", but just "John". The final line of the song, "The dream is over" represents Lennon's stance that the myth "the Beatles were God" had come to an end. "If there is a God," Lennon explained, "we're all it."[1] [
and some others (Bob Dylan, John Lennon, James Hetfield...) I didn't mention... but in a Top 10 you know is very hard...
Ok, somehow I'm watching a recording of "The Voice." I know this sounds crazy, but sadly it's true. Anyway, while doing so, It's interesting to think that perhaps many of legendary artists in Music History wouldn't make the first cut on this type of reality show. Here are a few of my favorites that quickly come to mind: Bob Dylan, *** Jagger, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison, Bon Scott, Brian Johnson... Thankfully being a music artist does not mean they all have to have a perfect voice. If others come to mind feel free to add to the list.
Video I made for Bobby's great tribute to John Lennon.

Totally felt this way about this song too! ***In related news, Frank Turner recently gave an interview to The AV Club where he talked about his hatred for John Lennon of The Beatles' solo song, "Imagine." He explained: It's always grated on me as a song for a whole host of reasons: the production, the lyrics, the sappiness, its popularity, the knowledge that Lennon was so much better than this one song, and yet it's the one most people know. [...] Compared to, say Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'," or indeed anything by Crass or The Clash or Propagandhi, it's so utterly vacuous. It's a Hallmark card set to music. There's a pretty high dose of hypocrisy in here as well. For a man who had a dedicated, refrigerated room in his New York penthouse apartment for storing his fur-coat collection to sing "Imagine no possessions" takes a fair amount of chutzpah. I mean, I have no problem with the man collecting fur coats. Whatever floats your boat. But there's a certain strain of material disdain that can ...

Jimi Hendrix for president, John Lennon for Vice President, and Bob Dylan for Secretary of State.
Turns out there are more ignorant people than there are well the rest of us, so I'm sorry there isn't any hope. Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Tupac.. Many tried to tell us, and we failed to listen. Safe travels for those in search of real happiness. One Love!
Rick Brown – Production Manager For fun, I like archaeology, history, genealogy, astronomy and disappearing in the woods. My favorite movie is “Full Metal Jacket.” The book I am currently reading is “Dear Brother”, William Clark’s letters to his brother before, during and after the Lewis & Clark Expedition. I have been working at WAVE for nearly 32 years and prior to WAVE, I worked in home construction, TV Director, copyholder at the Printing House for the Blind. My favorite TV show is Breaking Bad, but I’ve become a fan of Turtle Man since his visit here. My music appreciation I could not narrow to any particular genre or artist(s), I grew up on the Beatles and Bob Dylan. I always had a special affinity for John Lennon and, coincidentally began working at WAVE the day he was murdered. Something people may not know about me is every branch of my family tree was in North America before the United States was formed. I owe a debt I can never repay to those emigrant ancestors who include a passe ...

Bob Dylan's friendship with John Lennon was one-sided and uneasy. Why did he write a moving song about someone who never influenced him?
Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, John Lennon, Paul Mccartney, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Sprinsteen - this is some of what I have in my music library. The best advice I ever got as a photographer was, "If you want to take more interesting pictures, stand in front of more interesting things." As a novelist, the best advice I got was from Stephen King: "If you want to be a great writer, you have to read. A lot." I've applied that to my songwriting too. To be a great songwriter, you MUST listen to great songwriters, as often as possible.
What about people you may have heard of. John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Mama Cass, John Denver, Elton John.
Listening to Bob Dylan's album! Love the song to John Lennon called "roll on john"
Endlessly fascinating Bob Dylan interview in Rolling Stone. Most interesting fact re John Lennon singing, 'Nothing to get hung about.' To quote Bob: "..in Britain, there's all this hanging history, chopping off heads.he was speaking literally. 'What are you doing out there, John [in Strawberry Fields]?' 'Don't worry, Mum, nothing they're going to hang me about, nothing to get hung about.' (Second most interesting fact: Dylan was arrested at night in the rain walking in Long Branch, NJ in 2007 looking for Bruce's old house. He didn't have ID and the cops didn't recognize him so they took him down to the station house.)
Bob Dylan's Tempest Review Bob Dylan just released a new album aptly titled Tempest, on Sept. 11th. With this eclectic set of songs, Dylan again proves that he's America's most original and darkly poetic songwriter. Dylan remains a major influence on songwriters, whether they admit it or not. The title cut is a long waltz that chronicles the sinking of the Titanic. It's like a Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands groove. Roll on John is a long overdue tribute to John Lennon. There are blues grooves and, like a Picasso painting, Dylan adds unusual sounds that complete his 3 dimensional mosaic. At 71, Dylan refuses to retire or slow down. For his followers, including me, Tempest is yet another gift of music from the master.
Just downloaded & listened to Bob Dylan's new recording-"Tempest". This is possibly the greatest albumn I have ever heard not just by Dylan but anyone. I urge you get it immediately. Every song is great. The last 2 being very moving. One os a 45 verse song about the Titanic disaster. The last is a very touching tribute to the late , great John Lennon. Dylan is a true National Treasure.
Here's something most everyone I know will have an opinion on... What musicians do you think are totally overrated, or have been given Icon status just because they're still alive? I could sit here and throw out a bunch, but I'll stick to a few more well-known... No particular order: John Lennon, Neil Peart(drummer from Rush), Bob Dylan, Ritchie Blackmore(guitar player from Deep Purple), Johnny Cash... Who do you think is given too much credit for their place in Music History? It's your opinion, so it isn't wrong... Be honest and unmerciful...

Greg and I went to see Art Garfunkel at the Riley Center last night. Unfortunately, he had just come down with a cold and couldn't sing. So he took questions from the audience and told about the times he was with Paul Mccartney, John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Jack Nicholson. He also explained how he and Paul Simon made their records and developed their sounds. Overall, an interesting evening and he is supposed to reschedule and the ticket holders from last night can get in free.
"Fashioned for the warriors whose strength is not to fight . . . Tolling for the aching ones whose wounds cannot be nursed, for the countless confused, accused, misused ones and worse/ And for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe... We gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing." The road of every Western poet, lyricist and singer who ever lived leads to Bob Dylan. Watch this and smile... William Shakespeare, Dante Alighieri, Jelly Roll Morton, Enrico Caruso, Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby, Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael, Dylan Thomas, Ella Fitzgerald, Robert Frost, e.e. cummings, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, John Lennon and Paul Mccartney, Joni Mitchelll and Billy Joel, all owe a debt to the man who made singing real words the gold standard.
August 17th On this Day In Music History 1955, Elvis Presley released his first number 1 hit, 'I Forgot to Remember to Forget / Mystery Train'. It hit the top of the country charts several months later and stayed there for 5 weeks. 1960, The Beatles began their first Hamburg engagement at the Indra Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany, playing the first of 48 nights at the Club. The owner, Bruno Koschmider, asked The Beatles to "Mach Shau", or really put on a show, which led to the band screaming, shouting, and leaping about the stage and sometimes playing lying on the floor. John Lennon once appeared wearing only his underwear and on another occasion, wearing a toilet seat around his neck. The Beatles lodged in a single room behind the screen of a nearby movie house. 1963, Rory Storm And The Hurricanes, Gus Travis And The Raincoats and Johnny Sandon And The Remo 4 all appeared at the Royal Lido, Prestatyn, Wales, in a Merseybeat package show. Tickets 5 shillings, ($0.70). 1964, Glasgow council in ...

The birth of Rock And Roll began on this day in 1954... Quotes from other musicians.. “Before Elvis, there was nothing.” "Nothing really affected me until I heard Elvis. If there hadn't been an Elvis, there wouldn't have been a Beatles." -John Lennon "Ask anyone. If it hadn't been for Elvis, I don't know where popular music would be. He was the one that started it all off. -Elton John “When I first heard Elvis' voice, I just knew that I wasn’t going to work for anybody; and nobody was going to be my boss...Hearing him f or the first time was like busting out of jail.” -Bob Dylan

So we turn the corner now, that cute sweet innocent kid is about to open a can of "welcome to the 70's ". well what did you expect to happen, all those "60's" stuff going on right in front of my eyes. the war, the music, the drugs, the free love, the hippies. I'll never forget seeing hippies for the first time, standing on the corner in their colorful clothes, real long hair, I think I could smell them from the car as we drove by, (just kidding) If you think about it they were the first homeless people, and now the "working class hero" as my hero John Lennon would say, are homeless too, due to the recession, speaking of that I don't think were in a recession I like to think this is a re-accession, of life.

Today in Music History...2009, Bob Dylan mingled unnoticed with other Beatles tourists during a minibus tour to John Lennon's childhood home. He was one of 14 tourists to examine photos and documents in the National Trust-owned home, where Lennon grew up with his aunt Mimi and uncle George. Dylan who was on a day off on a European tour paid £16 for the public trip to the 1940s house in Woolton, Liverpool.

I just watched a documentary on Van Morrisson, and became much more aware of how much of his work addressed what was going on at that time in his home land between the Irish and the English, and a expressing a hope for peace. And I thought about so much of the great contemporary musical history we have shared -- truly the soundtrack of our culture, our films, and the times of our lives. Phil Ochs, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon and the Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Muddy Waters -- much of the music addressing the common man, human rights and compassion, anti-war and killing, and the obligations we have to each other as part of the human contract -- what most of us would agree are really typically "liberal" concerns and positions . Of course, the Republicans have . . . , um, . . . oh yeah! TED NUGENT, who threatens the President. As a matter of fact, when Republican politicians attempt to co-opt the music, the artists typically tell them to stop.
None of these people could refuse this "honor" even if they wanted to, unless they wanted to end up like John Lennon or Sonny Bono. Bob Dylan, John Glenn, Toni Morrison to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama

John Lennon, Alan Jackson, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson--you've heard their names before, for they are the singer-songwriters that are always with me. There's only one singer (who isn't a songwriter) that also walks w/me--Michael Parks. By now, you know that music plays a big place in my life ... Andean, Native American, Cuban, Chinese, film scores (nothing can beat a great film score). Once in a while a film score that isn't instrumental catches my interest--one is Miami Vice (the Gong Li-Colin Farrell flick of a few years back). Work starts before dawn tomorrow. Tonight I'm signing a bunch of books for the lady who made my new Cheyenne moccasins (that will debut in OKC) for shipment tomorrow. I have a terrific engineer friend and a week or so ago she commented on the number of pages I was printing (read: destroying trees). I quickly answered, "It's the only thing I'm good at."
