“I know it’s only rock n roll but I like it.”
I have been a rock music fan for as long as I can remember. I’ve always studied album liner notes and lyrics, trying to get a handle on where musicians get their spark of brilliance. I’ve always wondered…where did these people come from? What was their background and upbringing? How did that shape who they are, and the music they made?
But my biggest question has always been…
How did all that come together in the 60’s so those people could invent a whole new genre of music? I decided to satisfy my curiosity by creating RockDocs.
So now I’m on a fan’s journey exploring the history of rock music one band at a time. So far what I have learned is that “time and chance happen” and sometimes the results are incredible. Most RockDocs shows are part of a multi-episode series on a single band because these are great stories that can’t be told in a single podcast and you can’t understand the story without the music, lots of it.
For me it’s the music that transports you, takes you back in time, makes you feel powerful, happy, incredibly sad. Words and notes from strangers that cut to the very quick of your soul and somehow they link us together in a shared humanity.
I hope you find something you want to hear. I hope you learn something new and that you enjoy the journey as much as I am. And if you do, please subscribe at the button below and share RockDocs with your friends. But mostly I hope you appreciate and value what these people gave us and I hope you support them by buying their music.
So welcome to it! Thanks for listening.
