There is no easy characterization of the Leo Sayer sound. The singer-songwriter broke out in the U.S. with 1974’s Long Tall Glasses (I Can Dance), a quirky story-song that made the Top 10. Sayer followed with a pair of No. 1 hits: the disco-flavored You Make Me Feel Like Dancing and a ballad, When I Need You. Hits like How Much Love and More Than I Can Say followed. Sayer’s career’s took off in 1973 under the tutelage of British pop star Adam Faith, whom Sayer calls an “incredibly charismatic rogue.” Faith introduced the young writer to the Who’s Roger Daltrey,…

“When buying a used car, punch the buttons on the radio. If all the stations are rock and roll, there’s a good chance the transmission is shot.” – Larry Lujack Since Elvis Presley burst on the scene, the recording industry has been built around the musical whims of teenagers.

“I grew up with six brothers. That’s how I learned to dance — waiting for the bathroom.” — Bob Hope Patience has never been a strong suit of rock fans.

“The hippies wanted peace and love. We wanted Ferraris, blondes and switchblades.” — Alice Cooper The return of spring is a good time to look back at flower power, the hippie movement of the ‘60s that incorporated psychedelic music, Day-Glo posters and mind-bending drugs. During the Summer of Love, shirts, dresses and VW Bugs were covered with flowers. Flower children handed out flowers at anti-war protests while wearing flowers in their hair. Well, the flower children have all wilted but the music of the flower power era endures. So turn on and tune in to our Top 11 Flower…

But the Beatles’ most important contribution may be the inspiration given to a generation of artists to create their own music. Here’s a look at some key musicians influenced by the Beatles over the years. Here are 11 of the best (in no particular order, mind you). 11. Dave Grohl, Nirvana & the Foo Fighters…

When rockers want to convey rage, frustration, pain or ecstasy, nothing works like an ear-splitting scream. Some rockers’ shrieks are so outrageous that they’ve been banned from the radio, parodied on Saturday Night Live, even earned their own Facebook page. Often the howls are the most memorable part of the song. So keep your earplugs handy; here are Rock Cellar Magazine’s Top 11 Rock Screams. With a Little Help From My Friends by Joe Cocker Joe Cocker has made iconic songs his own with inventive arrangements, wild stage performances and his Ray Charles-style gravelly voice.
