Franz Liszt And Kurt Cobain
... for a
nervous breakdown. In some ways he was much like Kurt Cobain, the late lead
singer of the rock band Nirvana. Kurt Cobain was born on February 20, 1967,
in Aberdeen, Washington. He was passed on to several relatives after his
parents divorced when he was eight years old. For some time he even lived
under a bridge and was hospitalized for a heroin addiction. It was not
entirely unexpected that Cobain committed suicide. He had had entered a
coma by overdosing on a mixture of champagne and tranquilizers on March 4.
Also, Kurt's family history showed that two of his father's uncles
committed suicide, along with the fact that there were a lot of
The Tupac Conspiracy
... about the shooting. The video "I ain't Mad at Cha" was released only a few days after his death. "I ain't Mad at Cha" is track 13 on the album All Eyes On Me. The video shows Tupac as an angel in heaven. In the video, Tupac was shot after leaving a theater with a friend, which is very similar to how he was shot in real life. Interestingly, Tupac dies in his last video released under the name "Tupac". His new video "Toss It Up" from the new album was released under the name "Makaveli . second video to be released by the name Makaveli is "To Live and Die in L.A." But how could they shoot the second video when he is "dead". Do you really think the video was shot 4 m ...
The Beatles And The Sex Pistols: A Study
... pubs and try their best to entertain the crowd. They made it to America in 1964 and swept the world off its feet with Beatlemania. Their musical style changed throughout the years as much as their physical appearance did. A whole generation looked up to them and their cultural impact can still be felt today.
The Sex Pistols are the most notorious band of all time. They lightning bolted onto the scene and then were gone equally as fast. However, they were to have an impact on popular music that hadn't been felt since the Beatles. Although they weren't the first punk group, they definitely defined the genre in the popular sense. From their music come new wa ...

His band, the Bluegrass Boys, began to play regularly on the Grand Ole Opry
radio program in Nashville, Tennessee in 1939. By 1945, Monroe's band
included Earl Scruggs, who popularized the characteristic three-fingered
banjo picking style, guitarist Lester Flatt, and fiddler Chubby Wise.
The Scottish-Irish music of southern Appalachia was a powerful form
of entertainment as folks gathered in the evenings to dance and socialize.
It was what people back then loved. The people back then probably looked
at bluegrass music in the same manner as I look at alternative music today.
It was just a style of music that they c ...

"Skiffle Boom Era" which was dominating the time. In his doing so, he began to
lay the foundation for what would later be the most famous rock band ever. The
original band members were as follows : John Lennon, vocals and guitar ; Paul
McCartney, vocals ; George Harrison, guitar ; Pete Best, drums ; Stuart
Sutcliffe, bass guitar.
In March of 1961, the Beatles began to play at the club that would
later be nicknamed "The Home of the Beatles". The Cavern Club, which's premises
comprised a small group of cellars below a seven story warehouse which had
originally been used as an air raid shelter during the war. Later, Alan Sytner,

inspiration that others missed. He pushed the members of the band during their
touring years and was able to achieve the best possible results from the group.
The band began playing in a Music Hall style that is very effective for
the audiences but was lacking on their albums. Together with Paul, John began
to evolve the band. As the years began to pass, the band was obviously
beginning to grow musically. They had moved from simple lyrics like "Love me Do"
to harshly aware reflections of life in their home country in "Eleanor Rigby"2.
There were attempts, some more successful than others, to incorporate the

Paul McCartney: Six Feet Under?
... had anything to do with the story, although many claim that the
Beatles intended it to be a joke the their fans. However, clues, which seem so
cleverly arranged, are random coincidences or inaccurate interpretations of
existing facts, and all Beatles have denied that they were in any way involved
with the deceit. This leads people to believe that maybe Paul did die in that
In the late summer 1969, the Northern Illinois University campus
newspaper, Northern Star, obtained a list of clues from a student who wrote a

... worldwide fame but as a love of their talent.
A few underground artists have moved up mainstream music. The reason being is for (fame and money). Not for the love of it anymore. A person who has won the Scribble Jam back in 97, he is a well respected person. Now, he lost respect from many people. Reason of this was because he was asked how he felt about being an unknown artist into an artist who is well-known. He replied, “I know I lost respect. But I had to raise my daughter. I didn’t go to high school and this was all I had” (Fanatic 1).

Freire; Teaching In Our Society, And Wu-Tang Clan
... place them according to skill and avoid what society thinks of them.
The player's reputation off the court would be ignored and their skill in
the game of basketball would be observed. This is what Freire means when he
says look from a outsider's point of view. Look at things how no one else
look at them.
Freire would present to his students the idea of looking at things
differently and would not even restrict the students to an essay. He would
probably except anything such as a poem, paper, or a picture. As long as
the perception does not fit the one that society shows us. The essay that
is shown below is about a rap group named the Wu-Tang Clan. This was a ...

replaced Pete Best as drummer. Pete Best was an original member of the group.
The Beatles created a unique and varied sound that fans continue to enjoy and
bands continue to model, even today. One of their greatest albums was the
creative Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This particular album was
admired for it's harmony and lyrics, the added use of electronic music
techniques, and the addition of the Indian sitar sound. Though the songs were
inspired by simple, everyday things, the album was acclaimed as the pinnacle of
rock-and-roll's new elegance. The album's finale, John Len ...
