  • Benny Goodman, Bo Diddley, Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson


    Dylan and Wilson are easy but most people really underestimate the influence of Benny Goodman and Bo Diddley on modern music.

    Good stuff, drummer had some awesome fills to start too.

    What are your thoughts on twelve string guitars? I like the sound but my friends who play guitar seriously think it's cheating.

  • Jeremy Colson is the drummer and he is awesome. He played with Billy Idol.

    12 strings are great for filling in because the extra strings are in unison meaning they are of the same note except one is wound and one isn't. It give a deep and bright tone at the same time.

  • George Gershwin - Successful in so many different avenues, everything from opera, musicals, jazz, to classical composition.

    Micheal Jackson - The most iconic popstar of the 20th century in my opinion. Like him or hate him he has left his mark on the industry.

    John Williams - Fun fact, John Williams has the most Emmy's of all time. His scores are some of the most iconic pieces of music around in this day in age. Everyone has heard at least one of his scores.


    Jimi Hendrix - Innovated and completely changed the blues rock genre forever. He was very innovative, and his guitar playing influenced many.

    Bob Dylan - This man is one of the greatest song writers of all time. His works have been covered and made famous by many. Even the Beatles sought his approval, and counsel.

  • Raymond Scott -

    I like to bring this guy up whenever I can, because he isn't very well known. Back in the 1930s, he composed (by himself) a bunch of instrumental pieces which were performed by his quintet. He was a pioneer in that his songs were shorter in length (2 - 4 minutes) for that era, and because his music doesn't match any category of music.

    Although it was catchy, his music required extreme technical proficiency. As such, his quintet featured some of the greatest musicians the world has ever seen, most notably on the saxophone, trumpet, and drums. Here's a fun fact...his drummer was a man named Johnny Williams, who is the father of the famous composer John Williams.

    But here's the thing... Scott hired great musicians, yet he made them even better. A task master extraordinaire, he would not accept anything less than extreme perfection from his musicians. If somebody hit a note 1/100th of a second too fast or slow during practice, he'd notice and make them
    do it again. Long and grueling hours they would practice every week.

    But all that hard work paid off. The quintet was very popular. Everyone wanted to see these guys play live, because it was like listening to a studio recording...no mistakes at all. IMO, his short songs coupled with total precision was the precursor to modern music. The only difference is that with modern music, it's all done in the studio since everything can be distributed so easily.

    Sadly, his music is most often recognized as being used in cartoons.

    You missed my point. He never wrote a song worth a damn all are lyrical garbish. Hes a terrible songwriter and a lame musician. I think he is a joke IMO.

    100 of thousands of fans disagree, the record producers he had disagree, his album and song sales disagree, his net worth at his death disagrees. Being such a failure but holding so many sales records and making millions is my type of failure.

    You can be influential and successful but not liked and or appreciated by people due to your type of music and style, does not mean you are not influential and successful however.

    Here I will talk real slow and clear.

    READING COMPREHENSION TOO BAD YOU

    DON''T SEEM HAVE ANY.

    Michale Jackson, my bad I though your post was about Michael Jackson.

    Also let me know when those pop stars bieber, gomez and the lieu you state have accomplished anything remotely close to Jacksons 45 or so years of his career.

    Did Hitler cut an Album before the war, never heard about it, I know he wrote a book.

    I strongly disagree. Far more powerful to write simple lyrics that reach and connect with people and hit a melody than it is to write the world's most eloquent poem and try to put it to music.

    If you were studying the English language, you would conclude Will Smith wrote far more advanced and complex lyrics than Tupac did. Who was the better songwriter?

    Dylan and Wilson are easy but most people really underestimate the influence of Benny Goodman and Bo Diddley on modern music.


    The late, great Warren Zevon was influenced by Bo Diddley. "Bo Diddley's a Gunslinger" - great track on the live album "Stand in the Fire." Heck, I will never forget seeing Warren in concert here in Adelaide, back in the late 80s or so. About 200 people in a small venue - most Australians could only name "Werewolves of London" if the name Warren Zevon comes up. He's one of my very favourite singer/songwriter/lyricists - up there with Roger Waters, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Ian Anderson...
