Rock - Bluesrock - Progrock med Bob Dylan låter ! ------------ Lite info om bandet, så noen artikkler med artistene finnes og kopiert her; Hughie Flint (born 15 March 1941, Manchester, Lancashire), is an English drummer, best known for his stint in John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, playing drums on the Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton album, released in 1966, for his group McGuinness Flint in the early 1970s and for his subsequent association with The Blues Band. Flint played in the Bluesbreakers on and off for five years, playing an integral part in their blues based sound partly influenced his love of jazz. He appeared on the Bluesbreakers' albums John Mayall Plays John Mayall (1965) and Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton (1966, a.k.a. the Beano album). His place in the group was taken by Aynsley Dunbar. Flint then played with Alexis Korner and Savoy Brown.[1][2] In 1970, Flint formed McGuinness Flint with Tom McGuinness, former guitarist and bassist with Manfred Mann.[3] They reached number 2 in the UK Singles chart with "When I'm Dead And Gone", which was followed in 1971 by another hit single, "Malt and Barley Blues", which peaked at number 5. They also cut their self-titled debut album in 1970, which reached the Top 10 of the UK Albums Chart in 1971. However the early success of the group proved to be short lived. Despite featuring the production skills of Glyn Johns and the accompaniment of pianist Nicky Hopkins, their second album Happy Birthday, Ruthy Baby proved to be the end of the original line-up. Multi-instrumentalist band members Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle left the group following its release. McGuinness and Flint teamed up with Dennis Coulson and Dixie Dean to release the album Lo and Behold in 1972, which consisted solely of obscure Bob Dylan covers.[4] Shortly after this Coulson left. Despite the release of two further albums and a Greatest Hits collection in 1973, the band split in 1975. Flint played with the Bonzo Dog Band from 1971 and appeared until their final album, Let's Make Up And Be Friendly.[5] In 1977, Flint was the drummer and bodhrán player on the album Suburban Ethnia by the band Chanter. Flint's last band based venture was in The Blues Band, a supergroup composed of Dave Kelly, Gary Fletcher, McGuinness and fellow Manfred Mann veteran singer Paul Jones. Their debut, The Official Bootleg Album, was released in 1980, and Flint also appeared on their follow-up albums Ready (1980) and Itchy Feet (1981) before departing. In 1995 Flint appeared on the BBC television documentary, Rock Family Trees, to discuss the history of the Bluesbreakers and the many off-shoots of the band. By that time he was working as a porter at Mansfield College, Oxford, from where he retired in 2007.[6] Flint also featured on records by Georgie Fame, Jack Dupree and Tom Newman amongst others.

Turn! Turn! (to Everything There Is a Season)", along with the self-penned originals, "I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better", "Eight Miles High", "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star", "Ballad of Easy Rider" and "Chestnut Mare". The original five-piece line-up of the Byrds consisted of Jim McGuinn (lead guitar, vocals), Gene Clark (tambourine, vocals), David Crosby (rhythm guitar, vocals), Chris Hillman (bass guitar, vocals), and Michael Clarke (drums).[7] However, this version of the band was relatively short-lived and by early 1966, Clark had left due to problems associated with anxiety and his increasing isolation within the group.[8] The Byrds continued as a quartet until late 1967, when Crosby and Clarke also departed the band.[9] McGuinn and Hillman decided to recruit new members, including country rock pioneer Gram Parsons, but by late 1968, Hillman and Parsons had also exited the band.[1] McGuinn, who by this time had changed his name to Roger after a flirtation with the Subud religion,[2] elected to rebuild the band's membership and between 1968 and 1973, he helmed a new incarnation of the Byrds, featuring guitarist Clarence White among others.[1] McGuinn disbanded the then current line-up in early 1973, to make way for a reunion of the original quintet.[10] The Byrds' final album was released in March 1973, with the reunited group disbanding soon afterwards.[11] Several former members of the band went on to successful careers of their own, either as solo artists or as members of such groups as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Flying Burrito Brothers and the Desert Rose Band.[1] In the late 1980s, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke both began touring as the Byrds, prompting a legal challenge from McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman over the rights to the band's name.[12] As a result of this, McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman performed a series of reunion concerts as the Byrds in 1989 and 1990, and also recorded four new Byrds' songs.[13][14] In January 1991, the Byrds were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an occasion that saw the five original members performing together for the last time.[15][16] McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman still remain active but Gene Clark died of a heart attack in 1991, and Michael Clarke died of liver failure in 1993.[17][18]

Han regnes ofte som en av de største stilskaperne og inspirasjonskildene i rockens historie.[1][2] Samtidig blir han sett på som en av tidenes beste gitarist i ulike sjangre, og de fleste av dagens rock- og bluesgitarister nevner Hendrix som en av sine inspirasjonskilder.[3][4] Hans teknikk og gitarstil, sammen med oppfinnsom bruk av effektpedaler og hans kontroll av feedback, gjorde ham til en unik artist. Hendrix ble først kjent i England i 1966, sammen med sitt band The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Han ble også stjerne i USA etter at han opptrådte på Monterey Pop Festival i 1967. Han oppnådde ikonstatus etter sin opptreden som hovedattraksjon på Woodstockfestivalen i august 1969. Som gitarist var han inspirert av bluesgitarister som blant andre B. B. King, Muddy Waters, Johnny «Guitar» Watson, T-Bone Walker, Albert King, Link Wray. Stilmessig har han også hentet inspirasjon fra soulgitarister som Steve Cropper og Curtis Mayfield. Carlos Santana mener at han også var påvirket av sin indianske bakgrunn.[5] Hans sceneopptredner kan ha vært inspirert av rockepioneren Little Richard, som Hendrix turnerte sammen med som en del av Little Richards backingband, The Upsetters. En av hans store idoler var Bob Dylan, og han hadde alltid med seg platene hans når han var på reise. Han spilte gitar venstrehendt, men skrev med høyre hånd. Han ble opptatt i Rockens æresgalleri i 1992, og i UK Music Hall of Fame i 2005. Han fikk en stjerne på Hollywood Walk of Fame i 1994. I 2006 ble hans debutalbum, Are You Experienced, opptatt i United States Recording Preservation Board's National Registry.

He originally found commercial success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple. Initially influenced by Elvis Presley, Gillan started and fronted several local bands in the mid-sixties, and eventually joined Episode Six when their original singer left. He first found widespread commercial success after joining Deep Purple in 1969. After an almost non-stop workload, during which time he recorded six albums in four years, and problematic relationships with other band members, particularly guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, Gillan resigned from the band in June 1973, having given a lengthy notice period to their managers. After a short time away from the music business, he resumed his music career with solo bands the Ian Gillan Band and Gillan, before a year-long stint as the vocalist for Black Sabbath. He rejoined a reformed Deep Purple in 1984, but was fired in 1989. He rejoined the band for a second time in 1992 for their twenty-fifth anniversary, and following the recruitment of guitarist Steve Morse in 1994, has helped transform the group into a regular touring outfit, which he has fronted ever since. In addition to his main work—performing with Deep Purple and other bands during the 1970s and 1980s—he sang the role of Jesus in the original recording of Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar, performed in the charity supergroup Rock Aid Armenia, and engaged in a number of business investments and ventures, including a hotel, a motorcycle manufacturer, and music recording facilities at Kingsway Studios. More recently, he has performed solo concerts concurrently with his latter career in Deep Purple, and his work and affinity with Armenia, combined with his continued friendship with Tony Iommi since his brief time in Black Sabbath, has led him to form the supergroup WhoCares with Iommi.
