J-byrds Weekly Favs

Old school for me is late 80’s and early 90’s. I was an early 80’s baby that grew up in one of the weirdest times, I feel, our country has ever seen.  Growing up in the 80’s with an older brother, also a musician, gave me the opportunity to be exposed to a lot of different music. Rock music in these days consisted of big hair and lots of makeup. The big crazy hair and makeup wasn’t really my thing but I definitely rocked the tapered stonewash jeans and wore some pretty funky shirts back in the day. Oh, nostalgia! However, when the 90’s came rolling around with wide-leg baggy jeans, worn-out t-shirts, grunge music blasting from strung out, loud and rebellious rockers, I knew something good was going come from this era.

This week I wanted to share a few of my favorite bands in the 90’s. Not only were these bands cranking out good tunes, they had a huge influence in my life as a person, musician, and a songwriter. Unfortunately, many of these talented artists are no longer with us but their music will live on forever. That’s one of the great things about music. It never dies! Speaking of which, I’ll get to it.
