There's an exhibit at the Worcester Art Museum through
May 30th on photographers who shot rock 'n' roll.
It sounds fantastic and I can't wait to see it!

This is wierd. Gary
and Jerry Lewis sing
Help! on Hullabaloo.
I was screaming for
help while watching it!
Waaaaaaaaaahhhh!
Color tv was new
in 1965. Love the
NBC "in living color"
segment.

cool vantage point

The Temptations were incredible! Those voices and that awesome
choreography! Five lead singers in one group. Check 'em out LIVE!


yeah, yeah, yeah!

The Dave Clark Five rivaled The Beatles in 1964/65.
Check 'em out on Shindig! in 1964. Cue the screaming girls....


The Four Tops

I'm used to seeing photos from this era in black and white.
Here's a great color photo of the Four Tops on Hullabaloo.
Here they are on Shivaree from 1965.

Auto-Tune the News


















These Auto-tune the News clips make me almost wet
my pants! Auto-Tune is a software program that alters
singers' voices to achieve perfect pitch. It makes people
sound electronic.

Watch/listen to Katie Couric talk/sing about texting at
2:15 in this video. "People on the road can turn an LOL,
into a great big OMG!" whoooooaaaaaahhhhhhh!
Here's the Time magazine article about these guys.

I'm enjoying contemporary music less and less these days 
and delving into the past to satisfy my need for groovin'.
