Burt Bacharach

Genre:Adult ContemporaryDemo:35-50,50 +

Burt Bacharach

With a hit-single track record spanning four decades, Burt Bacharach became one of the most important composers of popular music in the 20th century, almost equal to such classic tunesmiths as George Gershwin or Irving Berlin. His sophisticated yet breezy productions borrowed from cool jazz, soul, Brazilian bossa nova, and traditional pop to virtually define and undoubtedly transcend the staid forms of Brill Building adult pop during the 1960s. ...

Chuck Berry

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:35-50,50 +

Chuck Berry

Of all the early breakthrough rock & roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. He is its greatest songwriter, the main shaper of its instrumental voice, one of its greatest guitarists, and one of its greatest performers. Quite simply, without him, there would be no Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, nor a myriad ...

Clarence Carter

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:50 +

Clarence Carter

Singer Clarence Carter exemplified the gritty, earthy sound of Muscle Shoals R&B, fusing the devastating poignancy of the blues with a wicked, lascivious wit to create deeply soulful music rooted in the American South of the past and the present. Born January 14, 1936, in Montgomery, AL, Carter was blind from birth. He immediately gravitated to music, teaching himself guitar by listening to the blues classics of John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins, and...

Cleo Laine

Genre:Jazz & BluesDemo:50 +

Cleo Laine

With a multi-octave voice similar to Betty Carter's, incredible scatting ability, and ease of transition from a throaty whisper to high-pitched trills, Cleo Laine was born in 1927 in the Southall section of London, the daughter of a Jamaican father and English mother. Her parents sent her to vocal and dance lessons as a teenager, but she was 25 when she first sang professionally, after a successful audition with the big band led by Johnny Dankworth. Both Laine and the band recorded for...

Dave Davies

Genre:Classic RockDemo:50 +

Dave Davies

  Although he took a largely subordinate role to his brother Ray in the Kinks, Dave's fierce guitar work and hoarse but effective background (and occasional lead) vocals were key elements of the band's appeal. Dave also occasionally wrote songs for the Kinks that showed him to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, if not up to the same level as Ray. In the late '60s, Dave made some solo singles that met with critical success i...

Dion

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

Dion

Bridging the era between late-'50s rock and the British Invasion, Dion DiMucci (b. July 18, 1939) was one of the top white rock singers of his time, blending the best elements of doo wop, teen idol, and R&B styles. Some revisionists have tried to cast him as a sort of early blue-eyed soul figure, although he was probably more aligned with pop/rock, at first as the lead singer of the Belmonts, and then as a solo star. Drug problems slowed him down in t...

Don Rickles

Genre:ComedyDemo:35-50,50 +

Don Rickles

Don Rickles is the ultimate put-down artist, comedy's unquestioned master of the insult. No one - regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or cultural standing - escapes "Mr. Warmth's" vicious taunts; even audience members, as well as other celebrities, were fair game for his delirious rages of verbal abuse. Don Rickles was born Donald Jay Rickles in New York City on May 8, 1926, he initially set out to become a serious actor, and even attend...
