No one can beat the arrangements of ABBA. Few people know that Benny Andersson went on to arrange music for broadway productions. Chess comes immediately to mind. And for my money it was Andersson's arrangements that made that unmistakeable ABBA sound. They recently were offered a Billion dollars to get back together for a world tour. They turned it down. What a set of balls. I saw them live in Minneapolis, I was higher than a Georgia pine, and screamed until I ruptured a vocal cord.
Then there's Fleetwood Mac. Nothing else needs to be said about them.
Bread was good, if sappy.
Supertramp sang, "Just A Little Bit," and it haunts me till this very day.
And Heart was there.
Just too many to remember, but those I do.
And it's hard to be the original rock and rollers like the Platters, Elvis, Chubby Checker, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Bobby Vee, and on and on like that.
Great times with great music. Rock 'n' Roll is here to stay, just like we said it was back in the early sixties when I was a green disk jockey.
