MINE IS THE ROLLING STONES

 Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica, keyboards), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar, vocals), Bill Wyman (bass), Charlie Watts (drums)

The Rolling Stones were at the forefront of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the United States in 1964 and were identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960s. Rooted in blues and early rock and roll, the band started out playing covers but found more success with their own material; songs such as "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and "Paint It Black"

I don't really have any. Right now I'm fascinated by Poets of the Fall, Delain, Within Temptation.

 The Lettermen were a favorite.  I even got to see them at the state fair and gt there autographs, which took some doing.

The Lettermen

The Lettermen in 1964. (Source: Wikipedia)

Since 1961, the Lettermen have performed at over 200 shows each year, and this still holds up to the present. The group, with their close, tight, three-way vocal harmonies , adorned by lush but light and easy musical arrangement won over many more adult listeners who were still bewildered and feeling left behind by the more current musical styles at that time.

The Lettermen have achieved a lot of awards and recognitions including eleven gold records and five Grammy Award nominations.

While their contemporaries have died off or retired, the Lettermen have been still active. As the years wore on, The Lettermen’s lineup continued to experience shifts, but still maintaining was their “code” of having capable soloists who can also do well in harmonizing groups. In 1976 Jim Pike left the group, followed by Gary Pike in 1981. Engemann died in in early 2013. Only Butala is the original member still active. The Lettermen is still very popular among the oldies circuit. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001.

going up a few years, would be The Village People.  I graduated 1976, and loved disco.  I even took lessons at one point, and oddly can still remember the dances.  I taught them to my daughter.  You had to learn the basics before you could loearn the disco dances.

It began in 1977 when producer Jacques Morali and his partner Henri Belolo, known collectively as Can’t Stop Productions, were recording a new album for their hit group the Ritchie Family, called African Queen and needed background singers. Horace Ott, the arranger/conductor who was working with them, suggested Victor Willis, a singer he was recording who also was performing in the Broadway musical The Wiz. After Willis completed background on the album, Morali approached him about another musical project he and Belolo were planning which turned out to be Village People.

“I had a dream that you sang lead vocals on an album I produced, and it went very, very big,” Morali told Willis. “I have four tracks. I can’t pay you much right now but if you agree, I’ll make you a star.” Willis agreed and the rest is history.

I grated in 1976 too. Cool, then I went to the Army but I loved all of the songs then  from Styx, Black Sabbath, Van Morrison, etc.

"I graduated in"

Nice.
