One of the most well-known band in the rock industry would be Guns N’ Roses. This band was created by lead singer Axle Rose after he dropped out of high school and moved to California at the age of 20 with Izzy Stadlin who would soon become one of the guitarists for the band. Before moving to Cali Axle had gathered a police record including public intoxication and criminal trespassing. After moving to Cali the men met Slash and he would soon become the lead guitarist. They also met bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steve Adler. They would soon sign to Geffen records in 1986.
Some of the biggest rock stars from the70’s 80’s are still rockin’ the stage today. Some of these band include Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, and plenty more. While others from the 50’s and earlier are dead and gone their music is still heard on the radio every now and then. Some of the older stars are Elvis Presley who is nicknames the king of rock, Jimi Hendrix for his awesome guitar skills, David Bowie who sadly died in this previous year, and Kurt Cobain the leading front man for Nirvana. All of these bands and solo artists are loved by many and for those who have passed we miss them dear.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was founded on April 20, 1983. The first people to ever enter The Hall of Fame would be Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, and Alan Freed. All of these people entered the hall in 1986 just 3 years after it was founded. These weren’t the only people that entered the hall. A few others were Guns N’ Roses in 2012, AC/DC in 2003, Aerosmith in 2001, Alice Cooper in 2011, Green Day in 2015, and KISS in 2014.There are plenty others that didn’t make it on this list, but are still awesome for entering the hall nonetheless.
Modern day rock is something that is a touchy subject for some people. Some think that its great while others think that it’s not real Rock n’ Roll. But nonetheless most people really like the new stuff. The number one voted rock band right now is Linkin Park. Others include my favorite Three Days Grace at number 2, Breaking Benjamin at number 3, Avenged Sevenfold at 4, Green Day at 5, Foo Fighters at 6, at number 7 we have Red Hot Chili Peppers, 8 is Muse, 9 is Skillet, and at number 10 is Papa Roach. All of these bands may be fairly new as of being a litter under 30, which is young compared to others, they are still appreciated all throughout the rock communities.
