Carl Perkins performs “Blue Suede Shoes” live at the Farm Aid concert in Indianapolis, Indiana on April 7th, 1990. Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers. Dave Matthews joined Farm Aid’s board of directors in 2001.

Farm Aid’s performances are donated by the artists in order to raise funds and raise awareness for family farmers. They’ve raised their voices to help — what can you do?
It’s Official Glenn Frey’s Son to Join the Eagles
Chuck Nowlin of Boston’s classic rock station WZLX caught up with Don Henley of the Eagles yesterday and said that there would be a big 70th birthday bash for him in Dallas with Joe [Walsh] and Timothy [B. Schmit] and [Stevie] Nicks where they will sing their hit duet “Leather and Lace.”
The real question was who would sings the late Glenn Frey’s vocals at the big Classic East and Classic West music festivals this summer. Yesterday all he told Nowlin was it would be someone in the Eagles’ family but he did come out and tell Dallas radio station KTCK that, like rumors suggested, Frey’s son Deacon would try to fill those big shoes.
Henley said, “There’s going to be an official announcement in a few days but let’s just do it here. Glenn’s son Deacon is a very talented young man, and he seems to be up for the task. He’s enthusiastic about it and he’s been working real hard on it, and he’s gonna do it with us. I think that’s appropriate.”
The drummer/singer described “an old system both in Eastern and Western culture called the guild system, where the father is the master and the son is the apprentice. The trade, the craft, the business is handed down from father to son. I think it’s the only appropriate way to carry on. I don’t think I’d do it otherwise. Since it’s Glenn’s blood, it’s his son, I think that’s appropriate. There’ll be one more musician along for the ride too, but I’m not gonna say who that is.”
The first two shows – since there could be more are at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on July 15-16 and Citi Field on July 29-30 in New York.
Deacon Frey is 23-years old. His dad died on Jan. 18, 2016. – by John Beaudin

Welcome to my list of top 500 best/classic rock songs!
I have chosen these 500 songs according to the following 7 factors:
1: Knownability (how well known the song is by different people).
2: Influencability (how influencial the song has been).
3: Soloability (the greatness of the instrumental parts/solos).
4: Oldability (the age of the song).
5: Favoriteability (how much I personally like the song).
6: Messagebility (the message in the song)
7: Newability (how unique the song was at it´s time).
The answer to the question is YES (not the group), I do feel bad for not including a lots of songs/groups on this list! I could easily have made this list twice as big, and I am really sad it is only a top 500 list! It has been a hard decision to choose these songs and put them in the right place! I hope you all like this list! There is otherwise only one thing to do. Feel sad, cry in a dark corner, take a glass (big glass) of wine (white and dry of course!), feel even more sad, drink more, puke it up, take another glass and sing an old Led Zeppelin song!
Feel free to comment this if you want BUT only if you recognize at least 96% of the songs (that is 480 of 500)! Please comment if you feel sad about seeing me not including some songs, or just wants me as you new leader (but just if you get at least 96% right!)!
Remember that It’s a long way to the top, and that martensitic stainless steels are hardenable! Peace out, I Love Rock N Roll!
