Neil's skill with a guitar comes from his brain and not his fingers. Not to mention a magical voice.

When the Harvest album came out I was living in California and my junkie roommate taught me how to play some of those songs. I think Old man might be my favorite NY song but there are so many.


 Their roots (Led Zeppelin) is really rhythm and blues.

Oh Jesus another term to describe a band or music Rolling Eyes Yes I know it's not just your opinion. Rhythm and blues is the heart of rock and roll.

Hey!! "The heart of rock and roll"  wouldn't that be a great name for a song? Laughing Razz
Huey Lewis.  Good rock and roll. :Big Grin Not really trying to sub catergorize. I liked Huey, his stuff was really just good ol' rock and roll.  Blues and gospel and blues are the fundamental element of rock and roll.  I'm not sure if I'd call rock and roll African American music. I'd say it's blues and it's rhythm are the origins of rock and roll.  When it was anglicized, so to speak, it became another hybrid.  Rap and hip hop have their roots in the old blues and gospel but they are definitely their own thing. No one could ever call them rock or rock n roll.

I'm not sure if I'd call rock and roll African American music. I'd say it's blues and it's rhythm are the origins of rock and roll. 

I'm probably wrong according to the experts. But these are all just fricking names. IMO Blacks invented Rock and roll.

Anyway  Huey Lewis is OK but not even one of my favorite bands. But his song "the heart of Rock and roll" Is one song that on construction jobs I would never tire of hearing simply because of the beat, the rhythm it's perfect. And for me personally that's what I like.

I think the blues/gospel/jazz influence created rock ' roll myself.  All of which are black. But I still think it is a hybrid of those influences and not entirely a black thing.  BUT it would not exist without those influences.
 
Yes it's not entirely a black thing because whites have put a spin on it.I get that. Personally I can't see much if any difference in rhythm and blues and Rock and roll. But what do I know.
Today a lot of country music is rock and roll. It's all semantics.

Yes. I like the old Country and Western stuff better.
