Bonnie Raitt Part Two

I wasn’t sure if I should do this one,Bonnie Raitt Part Two yet, without doing Part Three tomorrow. However if I wasn’t going to do this one, then I should I do Part Three, without Part Two. People would laugh at me, thinking why put out Part Three without Part Two. So I decided to have Part Two, so nobody can laugh at me. (You can laugh ate me, but I can’t hear it, unless you live by me).

Tongue And Groove And Release From Warner Brothers

In 1983, as Raitt was finishing work on her follow-up album, entitled Tongue and Groove, Warner Brothers cleaned house, dropping a number of major artists such as Van Morrison and Arlo Guthrie from their roster. The day after mastering was completed on Tongue & Groove, the record label dropped Raitt also.

Springsteen( second from right )was among the five recipients of the 2009

Kennedy Center Honors Springsteen draws on many musical influences from the reservoir of traditional American popular music, folk, blues and country. From the beginning, rock and roll has been a dominant influence and Springsteen‘s musical and lyrical evocations, as well as public tributes, of artists such as DylanPresley, The Animals, Roy Orbison, Gary U.S. Bonds, and many others helped to rekindle interest in their music. Springsteen‘s other preferred mu...

Springsteen is probably best known for his album Born in the U.S.A. (1984 ), which sold 15 million copies in the U.S., 30 million worldwide, and became one of the best-selling albums of all time with seven singles hitting the Top 10. The title track was a bitter commentary on the treatment of Vietnam veterans, some of whom were Springsteen‘s friends. The lyrics in the verses were entirely unambiguous when listened to, but the anthemic music and the title of

1972–1974: Initial struggle for success

Springsteen was signed to Columbia Records in 1972 by Clive Davis, after havinginitially piqued the interest of John Hammond, who had signed Bob Dylan to thesame label a decade earlier.
