So who really put us where we are today. Who essentially changed the culture in the west for 60 or so years?
I remember a radio show in the 80s where he talked about that. Some will say he is the father of what we now consider rock guitar.Ike at Sun Studio in '51, also with the first distorted elec. guitar from a busted speaker from the amp getting dropped.
I would certainly agree they are the Godfathers of rock. But if I understood a couple books and documentary movies the Honorable Mr Charles Berry (aka God) brought a swinging country-ish style into the studio and borrowed things from Wolf and Muddy, creating something a little different.Chuck Berry. wow. so good. so rock and roll.
But can I vote for: Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, Howlin Wolf, Willie Dixon and Jimmy Reed in a 5 way tie????
Hmmm .... never thought about that. Now I have something else to keep me awake at night. Thanks a lot.I wonder who tried to kill rock and roll? The person that directed the action.
Plane crashes, prison time, drafted into the Army, moral corruption ostracized etc. etc. How many of the late 50's rockers were flat out 100% silenced?
