Don't tell the Poles!
Give me the portal gun, Morty. Wouldn't want to live in that kind of universe.
Would a band like Fleetwood Mac be British or American?
The british didn't sell it back to the Blasters. Both Phil and Dave were students of the old school.
Me and Phil a few years back, talking about Jimmy Reed and Ronnie Dawson.
Poland don't give a ****, Polka is Czech.
Guess it would be British music. I could never part with Miles or Bird...
I'm not getting the question. Give up what?
Listening to [blank] music?
Playing [blank] music?
And are you talking about music performed or written BY citizens of [blank]?
Or just published in [blank]?
And is this all music, like American country music versus British rock and roll?
Or American R&B versus Northumbrian piping?
Bluegrass versus British pop?
And are you talking about music from the past, already published, or music in the future?
And, isn't all American music traceable to something that came earlier in the states such as blues, jazz, ragtime, old-time, etc?
And isn't it also true that the British lost all traceability to their earlier music (is there a traditional British music?).
So most all British music survived today derived from something American?
Unless you go back far enough, in which case all American music is derived from early traditional music from the UK countries, fused with music from Africa and Europe.
In summation, is there American music without British music without American music without music from other countries?
I'd give up American music.
Jimi is an honorary Englishman after all.
Version 1 with Peter Green British.
Version 2 3:2 British American.
I'll ask the same question about Spinal Tap ....
Impossible question unless broken down by era/genre.
Rock'n'roll jazz blues soul/Motown- no question US originated with top performers writers innovators.
60s edged by UK - Beatles Stones etc.
70s rock even split for me.
Don't care for much after that.
Easy decision for me as I loathe most Brit music.
How can you loathe brit music and love american music ? (It's a real question !)
I keep british music, the pink floyd and the beatles are enough for me to choose. But there's no Beatles without Elvis, Chuck berry or Buddy Holly...etc...
Being a European is, I think, a big part of my "choice", and that may be true for most of people voting.
We should try a poll : "I keep the music from the other continent" vs "I keep the music from my continent"...
Kool,was just using that as you had posted it. No insults all around.
As a fan I have a large Rockabilly collection ( time took away the hair to go with it....lol) large majority of it from the second wave was British and European. Had I reffered to an American or Canadian band it would have been propably obtuse. Stray Cats maybe as they went over and came back. What a great band. My personal favorite is Robert Gordon. Totally Amazing.
Thanks for the update. Love the Blasters material and Marie Marie is stilll one of my favorites. On the Canadian side I could mention Jack Dekeyzer with Mean Steve Piano in the Bopcats....
Hey! Accordion players deserve respect
I'd keep the British because of the language.
If I was forced to choose, I'd switch to listening to polkas, of course.
When a Brit band uses imagery and geographic location in songs, you don't get many lyrics like Knopfler's "way on down south, London Town" because imagery isn't evocative of Rock and Roll.
I mean imagine changing:
"get your kicks...on route...66"
"waste your life... on the M.... Twenty Five"
It's just never going to work.
I already listen to zydeco, being from South Louisiana.
blues with an accordion. Good music.
You are thinking about it too hard. Where the band comes from (i.e.: Def Leppard = British, Johnny Cash = American, etc...). Its just a hypothetical question meant to spurn discussion...nobody is going make you choose
