Insomniac This abrasive album was released in the wake of the major success that was Dookie. At the time, no one knew what to think of it, since the band was trying to win back their punk street cred. People forget that with Green Day, deep down, they were always a power pop band.
So, to me, Insomniac was a success. Warning This album told me immediately that Green Day was growing up and becoming adult punks.
And, they were taking stock of society. American Idiot Urban legend says that Green Day had wrapped up an album in , but the master tapes were stolen before copies could be made.
Who knows? It forced the band to create a whole new album of material, this time forcing them to look at the world around them and what they saw pissed them off. And, thus, we got the biggest change in perception of a band in rock history. Before this album, Green Day was considered a good band. Dookie The problem with this album was it was so good was how could they ever have a career and grow?

Ten years later, we finally got that answer. They are one of the last true rock stars, a band of throwbacks who still believe that rock music can be life-changing and life-affirming at the same time. And, they proved that punk rock can grow up and be adults, while maintaining the same jaundiced view of society they had as disaffected youth. As a matter of fact, this only proved their humanity. I am just a long-time music fan who used to be a high school science teacher and a varsity coach of several high school athletic teams.
Before that, I worked as a medical technologist at three hospitals in their labs, mainly as a microbiologist. Additionally, I am a serious vinyl aficionado, with a CD addiction and a love of reading about rock history. View all posts by ifmyalbumscouldtalk. You are commenting using your WordPress.

She was the first female rock star; among nonblack artists, you could argue that she had been the most persecuted, and endured the most humiliations for her art, having grown up creative, gay, and odd in Texas. I have to bow to the blues experts on this. He is a lovable character and a friendly, articulate guitarist; he is considered by all to be a, if not the , quintessential bluesman but to me lacks something. She fought hard to emerge from a Eurodisco ghetto and became, for a time, a glamorous pop-disco superstar whose thick and luscious gatefold albums penetrated deep into the consciousness of suburban America, culminating in Bad Girls , a rock-disco triumph of no little power.
Some people like them, of course. With the Airplane, the Dead defined the San Francisco psychedelic sound, such as it was, and over time came to embody a chaotic independence, in their latter days providing a comfy hippie vibe for stadia of slumming yuppies. Note that he lineup of the band inducted into the hall includes several highly inessential members, ranging from the dubious Constanten, Mydland to the risible Welnick, formerly of [ checks notes ] the Tubes. Garcia was supposedly on his way but never made it to the ceremony.www.cantinesanpancrazio.it/components/socehep/1065-monitorare-utilizzo.php

I asked Wenner who decides such things. Turner had an unmistakable and infectious voice and used it, irresistibly, to turn blithe not-quite-blues, not-quite-rock songs into highly enjoyable romps.
More about this under Ruth Brown, below. This makes no sense. Deservedly, the first of the girl groups to be inducted. I find McCartney refreshingly one-dimensional and dependable, save for this one thing: He is both industrious and lazy. There are great songs strewn throughout his albums from this period, and slighter, highly enjoyable ones, too, but way too many throwaways. He still likes you. In their own way, subtle. Then they became MTV stars. And the youngest had a lot of potential. Later recorded as the Jacksons.
Is the hall of fame voting process rigged? And no one had any idea how the votes from the voters at large were tabulated. The story about Wenner clinging to a penultimate vote count to sneak Grandmaster Flash into the hall in front of the Dave Clark Five surprised me in this way: Having read Sticky Fingers I had no expectations at all that any sort of count was kept in the first place. For the record, Peresman says that, today, ballots come in and are tabulated each day, and that Wenner has nothing to do with the counting. This manic white-blues outfit, with the Stones, were the commercial face of the move from white-bluesmen wannabes to rock stars.
They have lots better work than that. One of the difficulties the hall has grappled with is how it should take into account popularity; Madonna was, after all, one of the very biggest pop stars of all time. There is an argument for excellence that gets overlooked in all sorts of artistic endeavors, so let me make it clear: Being popular gets you a lot of things.

The Moody Blues are a great example. They pioneered a sort of orchestrated, lush, and it must be said ambitious rock but have never quite been taken seriously. What to do? The hall has been schizophrenic. Tamarkin recalls he was asked if he was an enthusiastic supporter of the band. The meeting moved on.
The Moonglows got in, eventually, in ; the Moodys in In fairness, the long delay in inducting some of these bands, like the Moodies and Chicago, to some extent points to their second-tier status. Still, I think the hall should push back on this point, and insist on the primacy of artistic value, but it will be difficult after the induction of bands like ABBA.

As for Tamarkin, he said his stay on the nominating committee came to an end after he published an editorial in Billboard criticizing the hall. Unlike a lot of people on this list, he was a true star. Definitely a tragic figure shot to death in , a sometimes-principled lyricist, and fluid, not-too-show-offy rapper who tried to expand the music even as he kept one foot in its least estimable parts. I wish this smart man had been smart enough not to run with Suge Knight.
