Funkadelic was not a 60’s band.The Kingsmen, The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, Funkadelic.
I'm just gonna skip hendrix, beatles & stones cause hendrix beatles stones are like the top 3 artists on TGP.
I must have ignored a lot of VH, AC/DC, Led Zep, Kiss, Rush and Metallica fansFunkadelic was not a 60’s band.
Also, I think the top 3 artists on TGP are more like Van Halen, AC/DC, and Led Zep, probably followed by Kiss, Rush, and Metallica.
Owned the 60's??? Interesting perception. I have a completely different one.He was doing all of his movies in the '60s, I'm not old enough to have experienced it first hand, but my reasoning is:
- He had just finished his military service in 1960 and so America, and/or the world was ready pumped for more Elvis.
- He was doing like all of his movies in the '60s and was in your face non-stop, in some fashion.
- He had soundtracks for like 15 of these movies, some went Plat/Gold, one went triple Plat.
- The '68 Comeback Special on its own was insanely influential.
- He dropped 2 compilation albums that were well received.
I just think he was already stupidly popular, served in the military, and then came back with a vengeance and like owned the '60s, both musically and on-screen.
But again, I wasn't there, I'm 33, I have no idea how it really was. This is just my perception.
Cool! Now we can open up 60's Mount Rushmore to Black Sabbath! They formed in 1968 but didn't put out on LP till 1970.I must have ignored a lot of VH, AC/DC, Led Zep, Kiss, Rush and Metallica fans
As far as funkadelic's influence, I think their 1969 performance on Say Brother had a bit of a Beatles on Sullivan type effect in the psychedelic soul world. Sure they didn't put out an LP till 1970 but they did bridge the psychedelia and soul worlds by touring in the late 1960s.
