2 Lists for Saturday: We turn our attention to music…….

Chris the Bartender’s favorite bands/musicians:
1. Elvis Presley:
The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis had it all.  The talent, the looks, and the charisma. Elvis started it all

2. The Beatles:
Like Elvis, The Beatles had it all.  Started the second revolution of Rock and Roll.

A quote I once heard “The world would have been a different world with no Beatles music”

3. Pink Floyd:
People say you learn things from your older brother.  Pink Floyd is definitely one.  Iconic albums.  There is a reason Dark Side of the Moon was on the charts for over 15 years.  I’ve been listening to them for over 30 years

4. Bruce Springsteen:
Springsteen can write lyrics that speak to the soul.

Best concert I ever saw was at Vernon Downs.  Springsteen played for over 4 hours

5. Michael Jackson:  
The King of Pop. Jackson was so talented. Thriller is one of my favorite albums to this day 

6. Elton John:
Elton John music could be the soundtrack of people’s lives  Tiny Dancer is one of my top 5 songs of all time 

7. The Eagles:
I remember “borrowing” my father’s cassette of their greatest hits I played the hell out of that tape. He never got the cassette back 

8. Dire Straits:
Another group I got from my brother. Mark Knopler is one of the greatest guitarist of all time  I must have bought their Brothers in Arms album 10 different times.  

9. Phil Collins:
Amazing talent both solo and with Genesis  spent most of the 90’s listening to him. In the air tonight is always cranked up when it’s on

10. Prince:
Another amazing talent that died too soon. Another amazing guitarist   Purple Rain top 10 album

11.  Bob Seger:
Great songwriter. Turn the Page is a powerful song. Night Moves is a perfect coming of age song 

12 Triumph:
Another one of my brother’s influences. Very thankful he turned me on to them

Discovered Bowie on my own. Bowie was extremely progressive and talented. Another one who left us too soon
