Warren Floyd on MySpace

I wanted to be a doctor. My mom made me do this.


Warren's original songs grace us with a much needed reminder of the humanity and grandness of every day life and have recently been featured on John McEuen's Acoustic Traveller show, XM Satellite Radio and Another Music Scene With Gene, www.milehiradio.com. He also performs rock and roll, folk-rock and country covers from the '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s. His stories, from watching Frankenstein on the late movie with Jimmy Buffett, coloring with Dolly Parton and hanging out with Richie Havens, to exchanging letters with Doors' singer / lyricist Jim Morrison and touring with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, are as entertaining as the songs they inspired and prompted singer / songwriter Mare Lennon to quip, "Warren is the Forrest Gump of Folk."

Alice Cooper schools us: Listen to the Beatles, Burt Bacharach

School's out for summer, but that hasn't stopped Alice Cooper from holding class.

In a recent interview, most of which can be read here, the 65-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer talked about what separates the rock songwriters of his generation from the hard rockers of today.

"People say, "What's the difference between bands now and in the '60's and '70's?' The reason our songs hold up is because they're more melodic. They're songs. There's a verse, a B sectipn, a bridge, a chorus. We were closer to the Beatles, even though we took it in a whole different direction.

"Take any bands out there now and I say, "OK, you got a pretty decent riff, and you've got a pretty decent drummer, and you're yelling at me, you're angry. I get it. But there's no song here. It's just you yelling at me.

"I say to that band, 'Why don't you for one week just listen to the Beatles, Burt Bacharach, Laura Nyro, Paul Simon and the Beach Boys, and maybe the Four Seasons, and listen to how a three-minute song is constructed. And then write me a song about how much you hate your father. But make it a song.' It's very hard for them to do it.

 "I remember sitting with guys in The Doors and guys in a band called Clearlight and guys in Pink Floyd, listening to Burt Bacharach's greatest hits. And sitting there going, 'Wow, listen to that, listen to that chord structure, listen to how that melody works with that.' Here's a bunch of hard rock maniacs lilstening to one of the masters and understanding why it works. I don't think young bands will do that now."
