GUEST,Sidewinder. 'Like a Rolling Stone' Changed the World (81* d) RE: 'Like a Rolling Stone' Changed the World 17 Aug 05

Well,well 6 haven't we been over The Beatle "issues" before and agreed to disagree? If you think introducing Black culture into a white supremesist America was not really that significant then you are really misguided."Hearing Elvis for the first time was like busting out of jail" said one Robert Zimmerman and "He made it possible for all of us who came after" said Buddy Holly and/or Little Richard.My own personal favourite though was "Before Elvis there was nothing" I believe you will know who said that 6. I am not saying that "Heartbreak Hotel" is responsible for these comments but it is an outstanding record still and not really Rock and Roll as we know it.When all is said and done; I think the artists are valued for a body of work and should not be tarred and feathered or put on a pedastel for a single song or album.The greats are deserving of more respect in my view.Finally, it was "I Want To Hold Your Hand" that heralded the British Invasion and not "She Loves You" but both are awesome pop singles. Little Hawk I meant "lachrymose" in a sad and woeful context although I understand how this can be misconstrued by someone who perceives "acidic, caustic and angry" lyrics.How are you Mr.Jones?
