Country Artists find their way into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
A genre many will agree is overlooked is country, however artists who are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and at the same time in the Country Music Hall of Fame do exists. These eleven are Bob Wills, Jimmy Rogers, Bill Monroe, Chet Atkins, Floyd Kramer, Sam Philips, Brenda Lee, Hank Williams, The Everly Brothers, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley.
Some of these names are indeed country artists, however Johnny Cash is the sole country artist that will be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The fact that Country allows or nominate Rock stars and bands are raising the question as to why the Rock Hall does not take a closer look at the neglected country artists who never have the opportunity to become fixtures in their own right.
Princeton University Rock Ensemble
Great news for rock lovers is that it the students from Princeton University formed their own ensemble to honour rock and perform rock at university level. In Bloomberg Hall the group of students are called PURE with a huge practice room filled with electric guitars, drums and strong vocals. Rock group posters adorn walls and the student only ensemble loves and live out the love for rock between studies and classes.
The thirty undergraduates also yearly perform and surprising to many is the fact that it is not your average rocker when you look at some of the students in the group. The repertoire cover music from both past and current top rock bands that ranges from Weezer to AC/DC. One of the lead vocalists is a young woman you would not ordinarily pair with singing in a rock group, a young junior who is a neuroscience major, Katie Frorer, who loves rock more than any other genre.
