I recall when Hendrix' first album came out. It was like an LSD trip. I think he picked up on that element in The Beatles' music and took it further. Everyone was touched by The Beatles. I wrote a song called Long Live Rock & Roll. I mention Hendrix, Joplin and Morrison together as music history has linked them. Listen: http://www.jimcolyer.com/music/

LONG LIVE ROCK & ROLL

Everybody said that it would last a year or two
When Elvis has faded, we'll be in to something new
They were wrong, I've seen it proven, many years have flown
We're all proud to see our music come into its own
California to St. Louie, London, Liverpool
Everywhere it's all the same, and everybody's cool
Reeling rocking, sliping sliding, we've been through it all
Looking back across the years, we've really had a ball

Long Live Rock & Roll, that feeling in your soul
Keeps you from getting old, that good old rock & roll
Long Live Rock & Roll, come on, let's play some more
Keeps me from getting old, that good old rock & roll

The 60s had The Beatles, and they taught us how to live
Told us what they knew of love and showed us how to give
They're still doing fine although they may have settled down
We still have their music, and those CDs spin around
Two generations moving grooving, singing with the band
50 years of changes, and it's still in great demand
Janis Joplin, JIMI HENDRIX, Jim Morrison too
I just hope I live to see them all before it's through

Long Live Rock & Roll, that feeling in your soul
Keeps you from getting old, that good old rock & roll
Long Live Rock & Roll, come on, let's play some more
Keeps me from getting old, that good old rock & roll

Disco dancing with The Bee Gees, I caught that fever too
4 young Swedes called ABBA won it all with Waterloo
Prince, Madonna, Ms Shania making videos
Now we've come full circle, that's how the story goes
Everybody said that it would last a year or two
When Elvis has faded, we'll be into something new
But if you're up in Cleveland, and you'd like to see your name
Come on down to One Key Plaza to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
