MISCELLANEOUS 50'S STUFF
- Dee Jay Jive-O-Rama By Dick Blackburn. A great essay on the role of dj's in the early development of rock and roll, partly written in the jive patter that many of them used.
- Alan Freed
OTHER INFLUENCES AND HEROES (NOT IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE)
- The Unoffical Billy Bragg Homepage. You can also go to The Official Billy Bragg Homepage; let's face it, now he's a dad, even Uncle Bill's entitled to sell out!!
- Henry the Human Fly Caught in the Web (The Richard Thompson Page). Of course, if you have a link to RT, you must also have a link to his old bandmates,
- Fairport Convention. All together now -- Meet on the web, we're gonna meet on the web . . . .
- The Hypertext Who (The band that started it all for me). And, in case that's not enough, here's a link to the new Pete Townshend site
- Another long-time favorite: Roy Harper. One day, I'll pluck up enough courage to play "Cherishing the Lonesome" in front of an audience; till then, the kids and the cats'll be the only ones to watch me tie my fingers and vocal chords in knots!
- "Well there's only two things in life/ But I forget what they are." A link to the great John Hiatt
- A link to another Bruce. HINT: it's not that Bruce!
