Rock music growing up
There were big things happening in the world of music back in 1967. The rock scene was changing form from something pretty well-combed into something less tamable. Legendary rock bands like The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Pink Floyd and The Velvet Undergrounds released their debut albums that year and iconic music festivals like the Monterey festival took place. Some mean that 1967 was the year that rock music grew from adolescence to adulthood and even though all of the 1960's were groundbreaking times for rock music, 1967 and onward were the most significant years when loads of unforgettable music was being created.
This blog is dedicated to that very special era of rock. I will be posting documentaries, interviews, pictures and - of course - heaps of songs from the late 1960's. Enjoy!

Famous rock legends
15 Sep 2019
USA is where rock music was born, and also where most famous rock musicians saw the light of day both figuratively and literally. Here I want to talk about three of the most famous rock legends, and of course it is by my own standards I am setting the bar of who is to be called a legend or not ;)
My list of rock legends
- Jimi Hendrix - Born November 27, 1942 and died September 18, 1970. He was a trendsetter when it comes to playing the guitar and managed to priduce sounds no one thought was possible. Thanks to him the evolution of rock took a huge leap forward.
- Kurt Cobain - Born February 20, 1967 and died April 5, 1994. Kurt actually started out as a drummer, but switched to guitar and was one of the best musicians in history. His inner pain was the driving force of the great music he produced.
- Lemmy Kilmeister - Born December 24, 1945 and died December 28, 2015. Lemmy is actually not his name, it was Ian but the nickname Lemmy he got when living in Wales kind of stuck. His career includes starring 14 movies, and he was also a part of the band Hawkwind. Most famous for Motörhead though.
