We all like Music. Music is kind of like Quiche. You like Quiche, right? Of course you do, everyone loves Quiche, but in order for you to enjoy that savory breakfast favorite someone first had to figure out how to scramble an egg. These bands are just like that, they’re the guys (and gals) who figured out how to take Music and scramble it up. I was fortunate in that I grew up in a home where I had a Father who held Music with the same esteem that some do the Law. I grew up listening to vinyl records and blistering guitar riffs. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all about Flo-Rida dance parties and Miley Cyrus sing-a-longs, but in a culture where the Top 100 changes about as frequently as I change my clothes I think it’s really easy for the people who made the music we have today possible to sort of become forgotten along the sidelines. So ladies, if you will please, take this stroll with me down memory lane and let’s talk about some of the greatest musicians that have ever graced this earth.
BANDS THAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
Ladies, if I were to say “Ozzy Osbourne” I’m sure most of you would know who I’m talking about either because you’re old enough to remember the Osbourne family’s short lived MTV reality show or because of his wife Sharon who’s known for shows like America’s Got Talent and CBS’s The Talk, or maybe it’s because his daughter Kelly has been kicking it with E’s Fashion Police for some time now. Regardless, you know who the guy is, but long before TV cameras invaded his home and the Osbourne women launched a full out assault on our cable boxes, Ozzy was the lead singer of a little band by the name of Black Sabbath.
Black Sabbath formed in the United Kingdom in the late 1960’s and took over the scene with their blues drenched heavy sound. Black Sabbath is widely considered one of the main pioneering forces behind Heavy Metal and forged the way for so many of the artists we love and adore today. Black Sabbath was selling out stadiums decades before their song played during the end credits of the movie Iron Man. To date, Black Sabbath has sold over 70 Million records worldwide, so whether you like jamming to the Black Eyed Peas or Maroon 5, it is pretty much certain that every artist that has existed in the last 4 decades has been influenced by this band in some way, and that is pure and honest truth.
