    Austin, you sound like my husband. Does not like country music. Can not stand country music. "The 'countryest' I like my music is the older Eagles songs." However, there is one country music artist he listens to regularly. Says it has more to do with the guy's attitude than the actual music, although he does like his music.

    Haha!

    You know it's funny, I have always seen Johnny Cash as an early rock n' roll artist and not so much country. I love his music! I put him in the same category as Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, and Chuck Berry. Maybe that's why your husband likes Johnny's music. And Johnny did have rock-like attitude. He had that "give the middle finger to the man" thing without being overly macho-wacho. That rebellion is what defines rock and roll. You don't see so much of that in country music, at least the classic stuff. I think that edge and the fact he played a lot of uptempo songs is why he's "different".

    I think because John wrote and sang from a storytelling and common-man viewpoint (rather than singing about rockstar excess and partying), his music gets categorized as country music because that is so common with classic/traditional/old country. But to me his songs sound like rock n' roll songs. I mean it's hard for me to imagine "Get Rhythm" as anything but an uptempo rock ditty. Even Folsom Prison Blues with that train beat is straight up 50s rock n' roll to me. I think he broke the genre mold. He had elements of gospel, R&B, blues, rockabilly, folk, country, bluegrass, jazz, etc. But his core was just pure early rock n' roll music.

    LOL at that cartoon!

    As has been noted by others, nowadays country is pretty much old school rock with an accent!

    The true musical treasure of the property is a collection of 40 reel-to-reel tapes of Frey recordings that he left behind at Mad Dog. They’re fragile due to their age and Brown said the contents are unknown. Frey’s wife, Cynthia, he said, has instructed the studio to hang on to them and preserve them until they can attempt to play or transfer them to digital files.

    Interesting. Dare we hope that someday we might hear some rare gems of Glenn’s music that we haven’t heard before? It’s not very likely.
