The Queen: vita – opere – gruppo – storia

Posted on ottobre 4, 2007. Filed under: Anni'80, Gruppi, Musica, The Queen |

The Queen

Il gruppo dei Queen si è formato nel 1970 quando Farookh Bulsara (o come tutti lo conosciamo Freddie Mercury), che allora era cantante nel gruppo Sour Milk Sea, decise di unirsi al gruppo degli Smile di cui facevano gia parte Brian May e Roger Taylor. Il gruppo prese subito il nome di Queen su proposta di Freddie e nel 1971 si aggiunse il bassista John Deacon.


Nel 1973 pubblicarono il loro primo album chiamato “Queen” che ebbe un discreto successo soprattutto per la presenza della canzone “Seven seas of rhye” che fu poi inclusa nel loro greatest hits.

The Beach Boys: vita – opere – gruppo – storia

Posted on aprile 30, 2007. Filed under: Anni'60, Anni'70, Gruppi, Musica, Surf, The Beach Boys |


I Beach Boys sono stati uno dei più grandi gruppi degli anni ’60. Esordirono nel 1961 con il nome “The Pendletons” i tre fratelli Wilson (Brian, Carl e Dennis), il cugino Mike Love e il vicino Alan Jardine. Quest’ anno fu subito molto prolifico per il gruppo soprattuto per il fatto che il 29 Dicembre la hit “Surfin” entrò nella Top40 della radio locale e il 31 Dicembre al Long Beach Municipal Auditorium suonarono tre canzoni al concerto del memorial di Ritchie Valens. In Febbario del ’62 la solita “surfin” entrò nella classifica “Billboard’s Hot 100” e ci rimase per 6 settimane raggiungendo la posione #75.


Poco dopo Alan Jardine lasciò il gruppo per continuare i suoi studi e fu rimpiazato dal 15enne David Marks, comunqu i due si riscambiarono il ruolo nel 1963. La fama dei Beach Boys continuò a crescere arrivando al massimo il 23 Maggio 1964 quando il singolo “I get around” conquistò la posizione #1, il 7 Novembre 1964 quando l’ album “The Beach Boys in concert” raggiunse la posizione #1 e il 16 MAggio 1966 quando pubblicarono l’album “Pet sounds” considerato ancora oggi Secondo nella classifica dei 500 migliori album di sempre secondo la rivista “Rolling Stone”. In questi anni fecero anche dei Tour di grande successo come ad esempio quello Europeo.


I Beach Boys sono considerati il gruppo che meglio rappresenta il sottogenere musicale “Surf” legato alla vita sulle spiagge della California, soprattutto con i primi album “surfin’ Safari”, “Surfin’ U.S.A.” e “Surfer Girl”.

Dennis Wilson morì tragicamente il 28 Dicembre 1983 annegando in mare in stato di ebbrezza.

Carl Wilson morì l’8 Febbraio 1998 a causa del cancro lasciando la moglie e due figle.

Brian Wilson continuò la sua attività come solista.

Nonostante tutto i Beach Boys sono ancora in attività e si esibiscono in spettacoli live.

The Beatles: vita – opere – gruppo – storia

Posted on aprile 23, 2007. Filed under: Anni'60, Gruppi, Musica, The Beatles |

Beatles… un fenomeno immortale

Il famoso gruppo inglese nasce a Liverpool nel 1958.

In verita il vero punto di partenza fu il 6 luglio 1957, data del primo incotro tra John Lennon e Paul McCartney. A quei tempi Lennon aveva 17anni e suonava in un gruppo chiamato “The Quarryman” nel quale entrò presto a fare parte anche McCartney. In poco tempo vi fecero il loro ingresso anche George Harrison e Stuart Sutcliffe; così nel 1960 il nome del gruppo divenne il definitivo “The Beatles” col batterista Thomas Moore sostituito poco dopo da Pete Best. Fu un inizio in salita per il giovane gruppo con un Tour estero in Germania ad Amburgo finito presto a causa di problemi con la polizia del posto. Rientrati in patria conobbero il loro primo manager Brian Epstein che riuscì a fargli sostenere un provino con la Decca Records, provino sfortunato anche se gli fu data una seconda possibilita dalla EMI con la quale registrarono 3 brani tra i quali “Love me do”e il loro manager divenne George Martin. Nell’estate del ’62 Ringo Starr sostituì Pete Best.

Nel giro di poco incisero il loro primo singolo con “Love me do” e “p.s. I love you”, ma il successo arrivò dal loro secondo disco “Please Please Me” pubblicato nel 1963 col quale riuscirono a raggiungere la vetta delle classifiche. Segui un periodo di fama mondiale che li porto nel 1967 ad essere nominati -Membri dell’ordine dell impero Britannico- dalla regina ElisabettaII. In questo periodo pubblicarono il loro album più importante “sgt. pepper’s lonely hearts club band” che rivoluzionò il mondo del rock. Seguì un periodo di maturità accopagnato sempre da una enorme fama mondiale.

Nel 1968 John Lennon è molto preso dalla sua storia con l’artista giapponese Yoko Ono e si avvertono i primi disaccordi nel gruppo durante il tour Indiano. Ma il tutto viene risolto con la trovata “Get back” con la quale i Beatles vollero tornare alle origini e ristabilire l’ordine. nel 1969 a Londra ci fu la loro ultima apparizione al pubblico dopo la quale crcarono di produrre un ultimo album; questo fu “Let it be” che venne pubblicato poco dopo l’abbandono di McCartney del gruppo a causa del ocmportamneto scorretto di Lennon e Harrison.

John Lennon fu assassinato l’8 Dicembre 1980 a New York da un suo folle ammiratore, Mark David Chapman.

George Harrison morì il 29 novebre 2001 a Los Angeles a causa di un carcinoma.

Paul McCartney ha continuato la sua attività fondando gli “Wings” ed è ancora in attività.

Ringo Starr è ancora in vita ed ha girato alcuni film.
