A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
A finely crafted sentence is a thing of beauty.. Willa Cather, Hunter S Thompson, Ernest Hemingway all able to string words together so powerfully. Now put notes behind them, find the right instumentation to bring them to life, how about a back beat to get the kids dancing? Now you have the common denominator that brings us together.
I love lryics, the stories that songs tell, the words that can lift you or lay you out straight. Tell me your best musical stories, or the songs that have the most beautiful string of words or phrase.
My own favorite is Dylan's "There was music in the cafes at night. And revolution in the air. "
