The Rolling Stones 1966/1968

With the song, Satisfaction, it was hard for The Rolling Stones to be hidden in a crowd, for that song made them a hit, with new fans, and the their fans from their beginning career, left them because they thought The Rolling Stones were sailing out.

The Rolling Stones, was a Blues band, but as Mick Jagger, once said that The Blues were hard to write songs for it, and since our fans weren’t the ones buying their records, it was time for a change.

Unlike some, The Rolling Stones came out with two hits albums for 1966 and with two versions, one UK and the other USA.

The UK had more songs than the USA’s version (2-4 songs), they both went on the charts and were very successful.

 

It was 1967, when both UK and USA had the same number of songs. It was the end of the pop songs and the start of the more mature and  artsy drug related songs.

The Beatles were credited as the first, with Sgt Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band, and all the bands tried to follow. The once that can keep up did so with their own album, and those that couldn’t, went on the waist side.

The Rolling Stones had three albums that year, which was one more than The Beatles had. Their Satanic Majesties Request was regarded as The Rolling Stones version of Sgt Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band, but it was more than that, it was the album that started a new image and a new replacement for Brian Jones, that was found dead in his pool, which is still being looked at as not being a suicide.

It had minor hits, but nothing like the two albums, which was Flowers and Between The Buttons were. Flowers and Between The Buttons have a couple of the same songs which were hits songs for The Rolling Stones and when other bands have new songs, for each album, The Rolling Stones have Ruby Tuesday and Let’s Spend The Night Together (which were hits) on both LP’s and the only two they played throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s and why would would London Records do that is something that haven’t been done in the past, nor today.

The Righteous Brothers were the musical duo of Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley. They began performing together in 1962 in the Los Angeles area as part of a five-member group called The Paramours, but adopted the name The Righteous Brothers when they embarked on their recording career as a duo. They recorded from 1963 through 1975 and continued to perform until Hatfield’s death in 2003. Their emotive vocal style is sometimes dubbed “blue-eyed soul”.

Hatfield and Medley have contrasting vocal range that helped them create a distinctive sound as a duet, but also strong vocal talent individually that allowed them to perform as soloists. Medley sang the low parts with his bass-baritone voice, with Hatfield taking the higher register vocals with his countertenor voice.

They had their first hit with the 1964 song “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'”, produced by Phil Spector and often considered one of his finest works. Other notable hits include “Ebb Tide”, “Soul and Inspiration”, “Rock and Roll Heaven”, and in particular, “Unchained Melody”. Both Hatfield and Medley also had for a time their own solo careers.

The Cowsills is an American singing group from Newport, Rhode Island. They specialized in harmonies and the ability to sing and play music at an early age. The band was formed in the spring of 1965 by brothers Bill, Bob, and Barry Cowsill; they shortly thereafter added their brother John. Originally Bill and Bob played guitar and Barry was on drums. When John learned how to play drums and joined the band, Barry went to bass. After their initial success, the brothers were joined by their siblings Susan and Paul and their mother Barbara. Bob’s twin brother Richard was the road manager. When the group expanded to its full family membership by 1967, the six siblings ranged in age from 8 to 19. Joined by their mother, Barbara Cowsill (née Russell), the group was the inspiration for the 1970s television show The Partridge Family.

Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. The band’s heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, though their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music.

After changing their name from the New Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin signed a deal with Atlantic Records that afforded them considerable artistic freedom. Although the group was initially unpopular with critics, they achieved significant commercial success with albums such as Led Zeppelin (1969), Led Zeppelin II (1969), Led Zeppelin III (1970), Led Zeppelin IV (1971), Houses of the Holy (1973), and Physical Graffiti (1975). Their fourth album, which features the track “Stairway to Heaven”, is among the most popular and influential works in rock music, and it helped to secure the group’s popularity.

Page wrote most of Led Zeppelin’s music, particularly early in their career, while Plant generally supplied the lyrics. Jones’ keyboard-based compositions later became central to the group’s catalogue, which featured increasing experimentation. The latter half of their career saw a series of record-breaking tours that earned the group a reputation for excess and debauchery. Although they remained commercially and critically successful, their output and touring schedule were limited during the late 1970s, and the group disbanded following Bonham’s death from alcohol-related asphyxia in 1980. In the decades that followed, the surviving members sporadically collaborated and participated in one-off Led Zeppelin reunions. The most successful of these was the 2007 Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert in London, with Jason Bonham taking his late father’s place behind the drums.

Led Zeppelin are widely considered one of the most successful, innovative, and influential rock groups in history. They are one of the best-selling music artists in the history of audio recording; various sources estimate the group’s record sales at 200 to 300 million units worldwide. With RIAA-certified sales of 111.5 million units, they are the second-best-selling band in the United States. Each of their nine studio albums placed in the top 10 of the Billboard album chart and six reached the number-one spot. Rolling Stone magazine described them as “the heaviest band of all time”, “the biggest band of the Seventies”, and “unquestionably one of the most enduring bands in rock history”. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995; the museum’s biography of the band states that they were “as influential” during the 1970s as the Beatles were during the 1960s.

The Carpenters 2008/2010

There’s nothing to report, so The Carpenters 1946/2010 has ended !!!

The Carpenters 2004/2008

Richard, Mary, and their four daughters and one son live in Thousand Oaks, California, where the couple are supporters of the arts.In 2004, Carpenter and his wife pledged a $3 million gift to the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza Foundation in memory of Karen Carpenter. More recently, Richard has actively supported the Carpenter Performing Arts Center at his alma mater, California State University, Long Beach. He continues to make concert appearances, including fund raising efforts for the Carpenter Center.
In 2007 and 2009, the current owners of the former Carpenter family home on Newville Avenue in Downey, obtained permits from the city to tear down the existing buildings on the site to make room for newer and larger structures, in spite of ongoing protests from fans. In February 2008, a group of fans got their protest campaign covered in the Los Angeles Times. At that time an adjacent house that had once served as the band’s headquarters and recording studio had already been demolished and the main house was on the verge of being demolished as well. The original house was immortalized on the Now & Then album cover and was the place where Karen Carpenter died: in the words of Carpenters’ fan Jon Konjoyan, “this was our version of Graceland.”
