The Rock Group

Organized by paulgardner

Group Info

A rock n' roll free for all! Wall to wall music talk.

This group is Public


I had a conversation with my dad once that went kind of like this:

Him: "Rock n roll is a fad." (meaning it will fade away - soon. This was about '85)

Me: "But rock n roll comes out of a lot of old traditions that go back centuries in some cases: gospel, folk, and your favorite, jazz."

Him: "Jazz is a fad."


OK, all flesh is grass and soon we'll all be gone.

BUT, while we're here let's eat, drink, and talk about the music we love.

Rock on.

The Drummer

To follow up on bass players, here is a thread to talk about drummers.

For me, it isn't all about a great solo. I like all sorts of rock and funk drummers for all sorts of reasons. Chris Frantz and his steady pulse for Talking Heads. Stewart Copeland for making the Police more interesting. Ju Ju House for powering go go grooves. Ringo, for being Ringo.

Some drummers can lock into a steady groove and others can astound with technical ability. DJ's scratch out new beats from old. Give the drummer some.

The Bass Player

I created this group to talk geeky talk about rock n roll. I hope others will want to join in with geeky talk about their favorite bands as well.

"My group" is the Who. Always has been and will be till I die. Who's Next is my favorite album, Won't Get Fooled Again from that album is my favorite song.

That said, I don't listen to Who's Next much anymore. It's so much a part of me that I tend not to hear it. When the album is done playing I can't remember anything from it. With Quadrophenia and Live at Leeds that is not the case. Quadrophenia was a challenge to like at first, but now I find it fresher and more intriguing than Who's Next.
