Why is this thread a sticky, and for such a long time already? It has got no traffic, no one is interested apparently. Makes one wonder who stickified this?

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!

^^^Heyy, it's cool to have at least one classic Brit Invasion band repped here, and they were all pretty good musicians who could, rock, funk, folk and do some heavy experimentation. Throw in some long-touted artist rip-off history, and you've got yourself a neat sticky!

Led Zeppelin have stolen the majority of the work the recorded. I alwyas had deep respect for the Rolling Stone Magazine for calling that group frauds. Why do I think the court ruling was an attempt to save Zeppelin from lableling this group as posters.

They're also the same Rolling Stone that inducted Led Zeppelin into their Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame. razz

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
