Wewus432 Posted April 30, 2004 Share Posted April 30, 2004 As we all know, Rock 'n' Roll is based on The Blues, for instance, The Stones song Gimme Shelter, if you listen to that, it's just amped up, speeded up, derivative blues. Another example would be almost any early Allman Brothers. It has that gritty, primal sound to it, like Blues, but it goes.....just beyond that, a little louder, a little faster, a little more in your face.... and that's the place I want to be, THAT'S what makes it Rock 'n' Roll, and IMO, The Best Music ever made. THAT SOUND!!!! Early Beatles, same thing, all their experiments in pop were great, but I love the early stuff, and then when you listen to their final tracks together on Abbey Road, they're trying to get back to The Blues, and that attempt was a stellar moment in Rock History. IMO, all the best Rock, captures that gritty primal blues sound, but extends it just a bit, just a bit, it's hard to know where to stop, but you'll know..........or.... will you?
