Hey all – since we are all about independent music here – and since I just read this article from the BBC, it got me to thinking – is there anybody out there who doesn’t like the Beatles?
Every year, around this time, an argument begins circling around literary circles about our current Literary Canon – who’s in, who shouldn’t be in, and why. So, let’s start our own canon here – a musical canon – not necessarily Chicago-Centric, but world-wide – lets limit the genre by a few things – no world music, no classical music – other than that, everything is fair game from Metal to Country and all the genres inbetween.
Mine would probably include The Beatles, Led Zepplin, The Ramones, and Marvin Gaye – to name a few. These are some of the folks I see as really impacting how music is sung, played and heard in my mind. What do you all think? Who should be included in our Canon?
