"Rock n' Roll and Rollin' Rock..."
What up, it's good ole Monday and I'm tired and cranky like a hibernating bear that has insomnia, not a good combo. Now my last post talked about my Mistress Jazz, now I'm gonna talk about my Around the Way Girl Rock N' Roll. I started talkin to her when I was younger while falling for my First Love Hip Hop, I was introduced to her by my Uncle, my cousin, and random friends. I remember one friend, Matthew Thierry, who first let me listen to some Queen, holy crap we were playing dirty brooms for guitars and were stage diving off his couch. I think the first rock music I heard was CCR and Lynard Skynard(hey I was born in the country areas of Belleville Illinois), also The Eagles, Steve Miller Band, The Beatles, Bob Seger, and many other classic 60's and 70's rock bands. But I only listened for the crazy ass 5 min long guitar solos when I was younger, cause that guitar was just so dope to hear scream. Then Hip Hop took over my life when I moved to Saint Louis when I was 7 years old. But then while in Junior High I came upon the epitome of what great rock music was, and the dopeness of the guitar...Jimi Hendrix. The dude flipped my Hip Hop filled world and I got back to appreciating Rock and even other sub-genres of Rock n' Roll, and since then I have loved many different genres of music, even though I always always go back to my Hip Hop, don't worry my fellow hip hop heads, I will never leave her. So to appreciate my Around the Way Girl Rock n' Roll, here's some of the albums that I'm feeling right now in rock, mostly modern rock.
Jimmy Eat World - Chase This Light
Brand New - The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me
Bloc Party - Weekend in the City
Queens of the Stone Age - Era Vulgaris
Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight
Ben Harper - Diamonds on The Inside
I'm really diggin this song right now...
Cold War Kids - Hospital Beds from Cowards & Robbers
