Top 9 Rock Music Myths
Have you fallen for these myths and legends about rock music artists?
Rockabilly 101
It's true that there is nothing new in rock, only creative amalgamations of what has gone before. This may be the case in the 2000's, with the reworking of New Wave and Garage Rock, but it was also true 50 years ago with the birth of rock and roll. Add frenetic hillbilly to boogie woogie piano, soul shouters and the electrified guitar, and rockabilly was the natural result.

Classic Rock Catalog: Cream
Although it was a less than perfect union of personalities, Cream was an inspired gathering of musical talent. Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce started working together in 1966, and by the middle of 1968, they were ready to call it quits. The four studio albums they released during their brief life, and four live albums in the years since their breakup, form one of classic rock's most enduring and influential catalogs.
