Stanley Owsley, Grateful Dead sound manager used profits from his LSD empire to fund the Grateful Dead. He was instrumental in developing the Grateful Dead’s legendary sound system The Wall of Sound. Though Stanley would be left behind by the Dead and by society as a whole. Despite Owsley’s massive contributions to the culture of the 60’s, particularly in Bay Area, he would die relatively unknown outside of musical circles. Overall restoring his legacy into songs.
Owsley Stanley was an LSD pioneer. He often provided his products for free to musicians such as the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beatles. Owsley also donated his LSD to author and leader of the Merry Pranksters, Ken Kesey, for his famed acid parties. Owsley had a massive LSD lab outside of San Francisco where he produced millions of doses of exceptionally pure product. Owsley became so linked to the image of LSD and the 60’s that The Oxford English Dictionary defines “owsley” as “An extremely potent, high-quality type of LSD.”
This article makes me wonder about if as a nation classical rock is buried as a whole. However I am curious about how Yacht Rock would be able to soothe Americans at a time of Economic recession. Though based on this article I would write about how a community without Steely Dan would result in absolute dominance of the sappy ballad genre. Though the most interesting elements of this writing is the dramatic, informal tone used. Because of this article I will continue to read about how Yacht Rock is the antidote for evolution.
The most interesting elements of this writing are how Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, figure heads of Steely Dan transfigured their band from rock into a jazz-rock genre. Though after Steely Dan’s highly successful Aja, followed the self-doomed recording, Gaucho. Gaucho raised countless lawsuits concerning disputes, health-risk, and ultimately death. However Aja generated a flawless fuse of jazz and rock to brith Yacht Rock. The tale of Gaucho is pioneering but the fate of Steely Dan did not discourage Dan from releasing Gaucho.
Everyone has always known The Steve Miller has always had an untroubling sector of the world for their music. Miller began his journey as a guitarists by becoming a mere apprentice of his overpraised blues guitar players. In the 60’s and 70’s Miller made a striking run which led to their number one hit Abracadabra. However a majority of Miller’s albums are a commodity of the era they were birthed in. Ultimately The Steve Miller band has remained extremely active on the road and in the studio for the past decades.
A sentence I might like to mimic is “The entertainment business is like archeology in at least one respect––it can take you to some pretty strange places.” The journalist using this sentence automatically keeps the reader intact with them story based off of shere interest. However the most interesting elements of the writing is the informal conversational tone that the journalist uses almost as hook. Yet the overall analysis of this isn’t that two men took a journey to find unknown tapes. Fagen and Becker wanted their music to guide people to the truth which it did.
I was instantly hooked by this piece of writing because it analyzes John Mayer’s perceptive melodic mind. A sentence I like to mimic “is of all of Mayer’s impressive career feats the transformation he achieved from pop star, the early 2000’s version of Ed Sheeran, to Pearl Jam.” Yet Mayer is a true example of what musicians lack today. Mayer has never played for the crowd instead for self-interest. However many say that Mayer’s productions are formulated perfectly to a movie which tells the story of a very unique artist.
I was instantly hooked by this piece of writing because it reflects Clapton’s persuasive simplicity in his sound and vibe. Clapton comfortably implements the basics and blues of music. However, Clapton’s significance was found in his epic solos, which slowly unveiled the symbolic layers of the song. Though once Clapton joined the infamous band Cream he obviously emphasized his singing over his playing. Though Blues-based sound will remain as a base of modern rock guitar.
This article makes me wonder how Jimi Hendrix permanently effectuated unachievable standards. Though Hendrix steers the “whammy bar” (guitar) on stage and in the studio. The most interesting element of this writing is Hendrix’s unchallenging effort toward music, there is not a song or album where someone is able to identify his commitment to the music. Hendrix’s music however was for all means driven by psychedelics. Hendrix later creating the ultimate synthesia “Little Wing” which perfectly paints a picture of Hendrix’s life.
Christopher Cross (1979) was created on the basis to implement enthusiast that it is “All Right”. Steve Luckather is with all means credited as the guitarist, birthing a mere anti-sappy love ballad. A sentence I might want to mimic is “All the guitar tracks on this recording are indeed fully engorged. If they got any harder, Steve would have been found passed out in Warner Brothers Studio due to lack of blood to the brain. This sentence does not only create incredible imagery but conveys the mood given by the guitars. Because of this article I will continue to discover divergent guitarist.
