    Just like the general State or more specifically the intellectual state of human beings in general these days, I just don't know what happened to music. That is the most vile trash I have ever heard and should not be categorized as music but maybe as pornography

    You see already El Kabong has provided a cast iron example of how addicted to outrage he is. This is a thread in which everyone else has used the opportunity to either share what they love or use their brain and sense of humour in the case of X, but El Kabong literally uses it as an excuse to draw everyone's attention to something he is outraged about. Most people i am sure would not even be aware of the track or video if he did not have this constant need to bitch. He is so incredibly miserable it is pretty sad. I am sure he never used to be like this years ago.

    Fucking tragic.

    It's cliché to say "I listen to everything" but for the most part it's true thanks to early and varying exposures. I got big band and some Ragtime as a kid from Dad. Doo wop and early rock n roll, James Brown and Fats Domino from Mom. Oldest sister with the garage, surf rock and ska, other sisters with everything from ballad rock anthems to disco to hair metal to Country. It's endless. Started the whole duel tape deck recording in in grade school..still have my original mix tapes stuffed in some storage unit . Growing up in Southern California was a literal Chinese menu of life long influences. Early pick ups from home went from Hendrix and Sabbath and Stones to New Wave. Oh and Dr. Demento. That turned to heavy influences in early UK punk, pogo, Oi then hardcore punk, skate thrash, speed metal and reggae. Then rap to hip hop. That was massive. Do you know how many wtf looks you get when you walk around saying early urban hip hop was just as 'punk rock' as what the weird kids in suburbia were jamming . Music is life, beyond labels and stereotypes. It sets moods, highlights memories, blaze new paths, soothes the soul and you can go anywhere with it. Literally at any time. Well except Nickelback. You can keep that horseshat.

    Forgot mariachi bands and whatever the hell La Chona is classified as . Cannot understand a work and don't really care. That is all energy. There's also something I stumbled into the last few years, like real early western rock/rockabilly/ country out of the 50's. Ernest Tubb, Sanford Clark etc. Some of these are lyrically genius with a sinister edge.

    Ha cool stuff. I like to think I’m eclectic in my music. I make sure to at least listen to new stuff so I know what’s going on. Even rap. A lot of the clients i work with are die hard rappers. So they blast that shit and once in a while they play one I think is cool. Like I can make out the lyrics and the beat is cool. I’ll go out and ask them who it is. I’ll admit I did hate metal for a time but now that I hardly hear it when one comes on I’ll listen I I get it. Not my thing doesn’t mean it’s bad. I remember the concerts I went to in Shanghai and bejing and hearing sounds I never heard before. China, although I think it more common in India don’t necessarily stay in key or use the chords our western music is based on. It’s like to us you screwed up if you play out of key to them it’s part of the song. It’s like rules we made up. They don’t follow that shit and it works fine

    Another love of mine, Motown. I think it’s a shame how it’s become lost in a way. Now if you have heard Motown you have heard James jamerson. Talk about an influential musician he was pretty much the bass of Motown and damn this man could play. Influenced countless bass players including Jaco. Here are some highlights of his playing

    @Spicoli didn't know about southern California but damn that is some big time mix of stuff. Just curious because most of that stuff I also like as well, when you say New Wave are you talking about Gary Newman in cars and stuff like Devo and The b-52s and flock of seagulls? Because I was in a band when that stuff came out and we had to do all of those tunes you know rock lobster and I ran I ran so far away

    Little Richard. On Occasion Prince wore very similar attire, did similar acts on piano. Inspired many blues singers to go up tempo. Without him not sure if Prince would have worn blouses and pants with glitter buttons and whatnots, even the hairdo.




    Wes Montgomery- so the story goes his wife didnt like him playing all night, so to quiet his studies he let the guitar pick go and went by thumb which allowed him to strike 2 notes just different octave- at the same time.
    His playing in Octaves IMO revultionized how guitarists played. There would be no George Benson, no Norman Brown, none of these contemporary jazz guitar players would base their playing on octaves -if it werent for Wes Montgomery!

    James Brown- From Soul, to R&B to creating a sound called Funk. Michael Jackson, Morris Day, Prince, they all imitated him as a kid.
    Without James there would be NO FUNK GENRE!
    No cameo, no Ohio Players no Parliament, No Bootsy, none of that!!

    James is the Greatest of influencers. His dance moves caused a generation of dancers. His bass player Bootsy -took that and expanded Funk through the God of Funk George Clinton...without James? No George & funk as he was playing acid rock music.

    Larry Graham of Sly & Family Stone- was hailed as the 1st bassist to pluck, snap and or thump the strings. Since him Stanly Clark, Marcus Miller, Stewart Hamm, none of these thumping geniuses would have existed had it not been for Larry. No Brothers Johnson with Get the funk out my face, Stomp- his bass playing was centered around thumping -to which Quincy Jones used for many projects including Michael Jackson songs like Get on the Floor.

    Eddie Van Halen. I think he started the finger tapping. After him tap-mania took over!!! The era of shredders came to be.


    Prince- I did a thread on great influencers and showed about a dozen artists that came as a direct of either Prince producing, writing, composing for artists who best hits were a result of Prince. Sinead O'conner biggest hit- written by Prince. Chaka Khan resurgence from 70s to 80s was due to a song he wrote. There would be no Morris Day & The Time to which there would have been no Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis who wrote EVERY HIT for Janet Jackson.


    Michael Jackson- His moves were definitely his own- as with James Brown...whereas Prince stole moves from James & Lil Richard. MJ got his moves from street corner, to dancers from Soul Train- but what made him the BIG Influence- was pre MJ, music videos were just that: A band, singer group being filmed singing. Mike took that to another level- I think it was based on Elvis Presly movie Jail House Rock - as Eddie Murphy joked -he was a bad actor- so he sang his dialogue! Well MJ took that idea and turned his music videos into a production. scenes, coreography.
    He is the reason 200 dancers are always on stage with whatever the big act is from madonna to MC Hammer to Beyonce to Usher...they all got to have 3 thousand dancers on stage LOL! Michael Jackson did that.


    Metallica- Now there were quite a few metal bands before, but these guys survived the change from heavy metal to grundge. Their extended riffs IMO today can be heard in many a great acts post 90s till today. Whereas IMO, bands like Black Sabbath era- most of the 70s acts molded their own style. Cream, Doors, none of these were cookie cutter acts. But Post Metallica, I heard Metallica cookie cutter wannabe bands!!


    And as My POP would say:
    The Temptations. Before them, singing groups could sing their arse off, but when the Temptations got their day- dance steps became a HUGE part of the act. Before them they stood in a tight circle and either snapped their finger in time or swayed one way.
    After them...for about a decade every R&B act started off as "THE" The Dramatics, The Spinners, The Floaters. Everyone had to have a DEEP bass singer, a falsetto in between.
    And they all had to have a dance routine.

    West Montgomery to me stands out in that list just a bit more significantly than the others but all are definitely major influencers

    Newman was good and The Cars and Devo were big. Men at Work, The Fixx, Psychedelic Furs, Talking Heads, The Cure..Bananarama. Original Babies on Fire by Brian Eno . Never big on B 52s but there was a re up party house every weekend that and Violent Femmes was literally all they played.
