Great version. Prefer the original .
Giving up British would mean no Iron Maiden or Priest .....But giving up American means no Ratt or Dokken....
i would have to go cold turkey no more Rock.... or stay off the wagon....i could not choose
i guess thats how alcoholics feel....
Too much to give up on both sides of the pond, so I can't actually split them up. If I had to though I would keep British music as I can't give up The Who, The Clash, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols, Joy Division, The Small Faces, early Pink Floyd, The Stranglers, Dr Feelgood, Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, The Waterboys, I guess you can add The Jimi Hendrix Experience as they were 2/3rds British....and etc, etc....
I don't wanna give up any music. I want more of it
As much as I would miss The Beatles, and a lot of other British stuff, it's a no brainer.
Blues, Jazz, Country, Rockabilly, Rock and Roll. And all their derivatives - Zydeco and Bluegrass and Soul/Funk and on and on.
And as @fezz parka says, modern British is just reinterpreted American (mostly roots) music. Love The Blasters, by the way.
Would he be considered American music or British?
I know he was born here, but he was discovered and signed by Chas Chandler in England first, right?
Music knows no geographical boundaries. It unites us all.
We got the Louisiana boogie and the Delta Blues.
Country swing and rockabilly, too.
We got jazz, country-western and Chicago blues.
It's the greatest music that you ever knew.
Well it's American Music.
It's American Music.
It's American Music.
It's the greatest sound right.... from the USA.
I definitely have a soft spot for this genre. This is pretty cool as well :
Ignored in the USA, it took an Englishman (Chas Chandler) to see his potential whereupon he united with two Englishmen to become... The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Jimi also chose to live in London, so definitely an honorary Englishman in my book.
Ah, The Blasters, great band.
Is this possibly the most absurd question ever asked on ST? It's a bit like being asked whether you would prefer to lose your right leg or your left leg.
But how can I lose it when it is attached.
P.s. left leg, totally.
