The Dark Side Of Rock And Roll

The lighter side of rock and roll is demonstrated by most of my playlists in the blog entry dated July/07/09. The songs range from youthful emotional melodies to playful funny ditties. The emphasis was on high energy and romantic music that you could dance slow or fast to.

While the music of the late 50s and earlier 60s seemed to carry the seeds of eternal youth, the clouds of nuclear destruction hung over everyone.

When Buddy Holly's life was cut short in 1959, it appeared that the music could die. If "Rock and Roll Dreams" could come true, then Rock and Roll Nightmares could as well.

As the years went by, there seemed to be a curse on major rock and roll performers. Look at those who died prematurely since Holly's death in 1959: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Bobby Darin, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Ricky Nelson, Roy Orbison, Del Shannon, Freddy Mercury and Michael Jackson

Even groups like The Beach Boys, The Four Seasons, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin and Nirvana have had their share of tragic deaths.

Other groups like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Megadeath have flirted with demonic evil and mass destruction. This demonstrates to me that rock and roll taps into subconscious memories before this life. Please look under the links to my "Cosmic Views Of The Universe" and find entries related to "Graceworld".

Perhaps, performers secretly want to get back to where it all started in Graceworld or Graceland.
