DJDeedle presents Deedlecast, the best mashup, remix, and retro-future sound.

Aug 21, 2009

The Woodstock Music and Art Fair held on a dairy farm in Bethel, New York, 43 miles southwest of the town of Woodstock forty years ago changed the history of rock and roll.  For better or worse, the 32 acts in the Woodstock concerts captured the zeitgeist of the age with the diverse sounds of rock legends like Janis Joplin, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, etc.  Though four decades have passed, and a fickle music industry and fans have diverged from the sound of 1969, the sounds of the 60s still live today as echos in modern rock, and modern rockers owe much to their Woodstock forebears.  Like the those at Woodstock, rock music has mutated, transformed, adapted, and survived.  This week DJDeedle salutes not Woodstock, but rock music itself, punk, metal, Brit, garage, grunge, indie, and even electronic.  The sound of this week's Deedlecast is rock music, but the flavor is definitely DJDeedle.  Enjoy this rock block.
