• It is hard to differentiate between the 2 because of how you mention all of the Genres overlap. I guess we can all agree that there is no clear cut form of Indie Rock as it can fall under many categories in the music world. There is an Indie style and an Indie features but […]

  • Motown is awesome music. It is so catchy and upbeat and I really don;t think I have ever heard a bad motown song. A lot of music today stems from Motown. Motown was the start and really created the “Boy Bands” even though it was not labeled that till the days of New Kids on […]

  • Obviously Tony Frost was incorrect in his talks about Bowie saying that we will peak in the 70’s. Bowie is one of the most popular artists in Rock and Roll history.

  • I completely agree with everything Bize is saying in this post. Bowie was the ultimate entertainer which is why he is still around today.
