A Dollop of Driscoll

        Over the years rock music has transformed with many different people to many different lifestyles and perspectives. Pioneers of our musical history that have I have found personally interesting include Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder and Bruce Dickinson. Dave Grohl has been in a number of bands that have gotten the ball rolling on certain rock genres such as punk, grunge and metal. Dave Grohl has been in bands such as Scream, Nirvana and The Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl has had great views on the music industry and its stance on artists and the profit they make from shows and album sales. His long life in the musical realm has provided the rock audience a new deity to praise.  Dave Grohl along with Eddie Vedder (lead singer and front man of Pearl Jam) has always been true to their music and have not “sold out” while most artists do today for many different reasons and products. Eddie Vedder, like Dave Grohl has been he music genre of grunge but many consider his sound to that of Alternative or Hard rock. Bruce Dickinson (lead singer of Iron Maiden) has helped on another spectrum of Rock Music, plain old Heavy Metal. Being formed in the mid 70’s, it took time to progress to become the Heavy Metal king that Steve Harris (bass guitarist) had formed. Iron Maiden has officially released 22 studio albums always with raw material to for fans to have. The rawness of rock and roll music displays a variety of emotions, and when paired up with deep lyrics and stunning vocals, almost any message and sounds can be created, creating the greatest style of music (in my opinion of course). Bruce Dickinson, Eddie Vedder and Dave Grohl have been on different side of the rock world, but all create amazing music for everyone to enjoy.
