In 1962, along with Ringo Starr1 and George Harrison, they formed the rock group known as The Beatles. The group featured a modern rock that was new and popular during the p

Music Of Early Times
Music Of Early Times
Music Of Early Times Early music is based mainly on the music of the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque eras. Many people like to define Early Music as ending in 1750, with the death of J.S. Bach. This is a handy date, but it misses the various stylistic changes taking place around that time, i.e. the emergence of the gallant and pre-classical idioms in close proximity to the final flowering of the baroque proper. To add even more confusion, this is also not clear-cut. As with everything else, B

Music Is Central To My Life. Without Music, The World Would Be Naked,
Music is central to my life. Without music, the world would be naked, cold, and quiet. Music can set the rhythm for a long day of work, the mood for a date, for a party, for your whole life. It can wrap you in a blanket of comfort when you are lonely, or inspire you when you are down. Music is a vehicle for expressing love, telling a story, or showing happiness. My love for music has grown immensely throughout the past few years and continues to grow without bounds. Playing musical instruments,

The average age of soldiers was 19, and some figures gather that 90 percent were all under the age of 23. This was also the first war in which the GIs listened to antiwar and protest songs while fighting in the conflict. In previous wars, the music had always been supportive, more or less hiding the truth of what was really going on. With Vietnam it actually told the s

His blood is not pure Osage, mixed with white, but the Indian blood is powerful inside him.
