"I believe all genre in one way or another reflect the social and political mood of the time. I’d say less with Jazz which evolved and changed not because of the time but because of the players who expanded the creative envelope. Blues is always the soul of the people. But rock ‘n roll had the greatest impact on the socio-politico-cultural."…Continue
