I felt like some old style rock and roll this week.
Remember when it was rock and roll? Maybe you don't. These days we've got all kinds of categories for rock music. But back in the day, anything with that recognizable back beat was called rock and roll.
Some of these tunes you might be tempted to call pop. But don't. They are rock and roll.
Enjoy your Labor Day weekend gang!
