Quote from: Lady Nicolette on June 15, 2013, 06:39:18 PMThere's a bit of history with Metal bands playing Medieval or Renaissance-inspired music, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Ronnie James Dio, to name a few, all dabbled with it to greater or lesser extent. Jimmy Page played as a session player for Donovan, who wrote a lot in that vein; and of course, many Rennies are familiar with Ritchie Blackmore's latest incarnate band, Blackmore's Night . Along with them, were the musicians like the Pentangle and Fairport Convention that played Progressive Folk music and many of the Progressive Rock era bands like King Crimson, The Strawbs, ELP, Gentle Giant and Jethro Tull round out this list. Even the hugely popular Rolling Stones, arguably more a straight rock and blues influenced band, probably under the aegis of Brian Jones, produced the very Elizabethan "Lady Jane." There's a lot more, this being a special favourite of mine in my collections and recollections, but I'll stop here for now.[/quoteTHANK YOU!!! I didn't realize there was such a vast renaissance influence in rock bands! Can't wait to do some digging based off your list!! Blessings to you!
Quote from: Lady Nicolette on June 21, 2013, 08:27:48 AMI think that the pigeon-holing didn't start to the degree it became until people became more aware that there were fortunes to be made from the music that occurred more as a cultural enterprise than as a fiscal one. In the early days, even though they wanted to make a living, greed wasn't the impetus behind the creation, although the entrepreneurs of the era certainly saw that before anyone else, but many of them also were originally performers as opposed to impresarios. These days, both the creators and those that market them are frequently behind the streamlining to better market product.And back to the original query, Carol Tatum with Angels of Venice does a lovely version of "Nothing Else Matters."
QuoteNot sure if this posted but I know Led Zeppelin was mentioned. This little video has been around for a while but always good for a giggle.Enjoy!
