    Default Biggest influencers on music thread

    So many. I’m big on the blues so i have a deep appreciation for the blues but so many artists were doing revolutionary stuff that we take for granted. Figured I’d start with buddy

    a different angle here but I think nature and the sounds of nature have made the biggest impact on music

    W.C. Handy, Leadbelly and Jelly Roll Morton, guys like that, who led to guys like B.B King and John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters who led to guys like Elvis and Jagger and Richards. That's the bloodlines of everything you listen to.

    Actually you should have started with Robert Johnson

    Well, western music (which we know) anyway. I’d imagine a very different and possibly interesting list for things like Chinese music, African music, Polynesian or Latin American. I most certainly don’t know enough about them, but we shouldn’t think that our music is the only - or even the oldest - music there is?
    If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?

    Oh certainly not. Definitely the Chinese and india were doing wild shit back in the day. George Harrison actually opened a lot of western ears to Indian music, the sitar is a beautiful instrument. It’s kind of hard to cover everything. I just started with buddy as he was a pioneer and I always liked him but the list of influencers really is endless. McCartney was influenced by Bach in a few of his songs. Paul Simon did a lot with African music and mickey heart of the Grateful Dead spent time traveling Africa to study their ancient history of drums, fascinating stuff. He wrote a book about just that

    Exclamation Re: Biggest influencers on music thread

    This is Uraghah.

    He is not very well known these days, but back in the day he was a music legend. He was the most famous artist of his generation and influenced a whole species.

    It’s said that he could improvise a 12 minute drum solo with his club and his neighbour’s head. He once played an innovative riff with the intestines of his enemies and pioneered the early use of using backing vocals (he used the screams of his victims overlaid on the wailing of their widows on his definitive ‘Ooh Ah Ah Ooh Aaaaaah’ legendary hit which topped the newly created charts in 25,000BC). A true classic, echoes of which resonate through popular music to this day.

    At one point, he had all of the top twenty hit singles (hit being the operative word), a feat likely to be unmatched in the future. In fairness, he was the only musical artist at the time, having killed and eaten most of his competition.

    Many of his performances drew outrage from the mainstream media of the day, and he received much criticism for cutting his hair. The jungle drums were filled with articles condemning him as a bad influence on younger Neanderthals. Despite this, he became the voice of his generation, he transcended music by raping and having children with a Homo Sapiens woman thus becoming an early supporter of mixed species marriage.

    Like many geniuses, he dies tragically young. In a death eerily prescient of that of Marie Curie, he was experimenting with the sound made by rubbing wooden sticks together. Not knowing of the dangers of fire, a stray spark caught in the animal fat he had rubbed on his skin and he perished in the resulting conflagration. He was 14 years old.

    I have searched YouTube for some videos of his playing live, but couldn’t find any for some reason. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s a copyright thing. Does anybody have any of Uragah’s work on video that they can post?

    Like check this shit out. I don’t know what he is sayin but damn it got feeling


    Snap look how he handles that instrument. Like it’s an extension of his body. Many of these people have a natural inclination towards these things. I’ve played for years but it was never a “natural” thing for me. I had to put in a lot of time and practice. I have played with the “gifted” crowd. I can tell the difference. Let’s be honest you can practice and become good, you can’t practice and reach Beethoven level. That shit is so far above normal human operation it’s astounding. It’s like that with many things in life. Very hard to achieve a certainly level if you weren’t born with that inclination, there are always exceptions to that rule but it is pretty solid. I don’t know maybe it’s debatable but that’s how I see it

    Besides straight ahead Bebop like John Coltrane and Charlie Parker and Sonny Fortune and Charlie Mingus and besides really only being able to listen to Jimi Hendrix in general from western music, I only listen to Indian and Arabic music all day all night 7 days a week.

    And if you dig the Indian stuff I’m sure you have heard this. I mean seriously I’m not saying it wasn’t listened to in the US before the Beatles but they did, especially George Harrison, make the west much more aware of it

    Yeah that's one of my favorite Beatles songs of all time including that other one which I never remember the title of but they keep saying "sit right back relax and go down slow... You are not dying you are not dying.... From the beginning from the beginning"
