Friday, February 7, 1964 began the renaissance of ‘rock ‘n’ roll music in America as the Beatles landed at the JFK airport in New York City and became the vanguard of the British Invasion. The Timmons Brothers will analyze and review the contemporary reports of 1964 and the skepticism that surrounded the possibility of success for British artists in the United States. Such questions as timing, the music landscape and the type of artist before 1964 will be addressed and why 1964r may be the benchmark year in rock’s history.
“A Review of The Byrds: Folk Rockers and Innovators”
The pioneers of folk rock and country rock, the Byrds combined harmony, an electric 12 string guitar, and thought provoking lyrics. They were influenced by The Beatles, but they also fascinated The Beatles. The Timmons Brothers review the legacy of a band from the original five of McGuinn, Crosby, Hillmam, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke (who were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1991) to several shifts of changing personnel. Through the changes, they continued to be innovators with their sound. A rare combination of combining commercial success with Top Forty singles while extending rock into new underground areas, the story of the Byrds is as interesting as their freshness in their music to this day.
The roots of rock ‘n’ roll originate in multiple genres of music, but on a more narrow sense, rock artists can be the root of their own rock ‘n’ roll family tree. In Part II, the focus is on two artists (Poco and the career of Eric Clapton). The Timmons Brothers trace the roots of each and the number of artists/bands from their family tree of rock ‘n’ roll. The Poco branch extends to Loggins and Messina, The Eagles, and The Buffalo Springfield among others while the elongated branch of Clapton to many artists will be explored.

1973 is a landmark year in the laurels of rock music history. Although the contemporary top 40 hits of 1973 may be lost in the vaults of time forgotten (does “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” or “Playground in my Mind” come to mind?), few of us knew at the time we were also experiencing some of the greatest rock music and artists for future generations. The album debut releases by such artists as Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Aerosmith along with impactful album releases by established artists (Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd and solo work by each former Beatle, et al) set the stage for 1973 as the genesis of what would later be called “Classic Rock”. Join the Timmons Brothers and their in-depth retrospective of 1973 rock music as the benchmark for an integral core of the popular classic rock format in the radio industry.
The Singer/Songwriter Part II: The Golden Era (1970 – 75) As a follow up to Part I, the focus of the Timmons Brothers will be the second half of the era when the singer-songwriter arguably enjoyed their greatest commercial success (early to mid 1970s). From Harry Chapin to Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot to Billy Joel among others, the singer/songwriters provided commentary on the times with their lyrics while evoking emotions with their melodies. Through it all, this period may have been the most noteworthy for the singer/songwriter.
John and David are back to explore the world of Rock and Roll .
The topic of discussion will be.
From Rock’n’Roll legends to single album artists, they share in common the making of a debut album. The level of success for the debut album varies as much as the level of success in the performer’s career. The first album can be a springboard and launch a great career (such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones). The first album can also be a collection of veteran rock performers who assemble a new band (such as Led Zeppelin and Bad Company). Join the Timmons Brothers as they debate what entails a debut album and discuss several categories of the debut album.

The singer/songwriter has evolved from the roots of traveling performers in 19 century Europe to its own niche in today’s contemporary music market.

From Dylan to Donovan and Neil Diamond to James Taylor, the singer/songwriters provide commentary on the times with their lyrics, grab your heart with their melodies, make a political statement with their compositions, and through it all, they write, compose and sing their own musical material.
