Musical Influences


The other day I was in the car listening to my favorite radio station (Dave FM), and this song I’d heard several times came on, but this time the DJ actually mentioned the artist and title. It was the Killers’ song “All These Things That I’ve Done.” I thought every time I heard that song “those guys sound like T. Rex.” Then it occurred to me that I think that about lots of artists. So this radio blog is dedicated to artists and their obvious influences. I have some good tunes over there. Go check it out! As always, my radio blog is always accessible through the sidebar under “Currently Listening,” too.

  1. Well, I don't remember T-Rex much. I do hear the similarity with the song on you radio blog though. Abby cried when I played it, she looked scared.

  2. T. Rex were popular in the early 1970's. I got into them when I was in high school. You might remember me playing them a lot. I got my first T. Rex tape at that Wherehouse over by the apartments where we lived in Anaheim. I bought it because I'd read some rock history book that summer at Granna's — I'd checked it out of the library. I thought T. Rex sounded interesting, so I got the tape. They also did "Get It On (Bang a Gong)" and "Jeepster."
