BLOGGING A2Z CHALLENGE: LETTER V

    VAN HALEN AND VILLAGE PEOPLE


I know these are two completely different bands, one from the disco era and the other a rock band. I love all kinds of music, mostly from the 70's through the 90's. I like country, Classic Rock, and disco.

The Village People members were:

Erik Anzalone, the biker
Felipe Rose, the Native American
Jim Newman, the cowboy.
 Ray Simpson, the Cop
Billy Whitefield, Construction worker
Alex Briley, the soldier.

Two of my favorite songs  were Y.M.C.A and Macho Man. It was in the disco era. Yea, it shows my age for  sure. They were upbeat and sang tunes that made you want to get on your feet and dance. Remember the dance when the letters were formed with our arms?





Van Halen is another one of my favorites. The members were :

Eddie Van Halen, guitarist and vocalist.
David Lee Roth, Vocalist
Alex Van Halen, Drummer
Michael Anthony, Bassist



My favorite songs are Jump and You Really Got Me. I thought Eddie was so adorable. He was a fantastic guitarist. Love his solo above.

I hope these videos work because I've been having trouble getting them to work.

What are some of your favorite bands?

  1. Speaking of Van Halen, did you ever think that Eddie Van Halen and Vallerie Bertinelli (his former wife) looked alike? i thought they did.

    1. I didn't think they looked alike, but I did think they had the same hairstyle ...

  2. I remember the Village People, but my favorites were the Beatles, Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Jopin, etc. I still have most of those CD's, but listen to a bit milder music today unless I get in the mood for the above.

  4. Loved Van Halen. Both with David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar. I just love classic rock from the 60's, 70's and 80's most of all.

  5. Music in the 70s and 80s was fantastic. The likes of David Bowie, The Smiths, Queen, Depeche Mode and Pixies are just a small selection of my faves from those decades. Good times.

    Thank you for sharing and good luck with the rest of the challenge :)
