Chicks Rock : vol. 1
Written by Agent 47 on April 24, 2015
Not a comprehensive compendium of the best females in Rock. More of a page from a lengthy personal lists of some of my favorite female artists. My only delineation, that the woman be the primary artist. She could be a front woman, or singular singer songwriter, but she must have song credit and be either highly influential or simply amazing by my own selfish standards. All the artists/bands highlighted are either women, driven by women or equal share of the compostional artistry. Truth is I simply love women. What better way to promote and advance the understanding that they are as important to EVERYTHING, much less music, art or culture, than to simply spotlight amazing examples of their brilliance as rock songsmithery for an entire hour. This is only the first of what will be many installments to this show concept. This is one particulary diverse and sweet chocolate. Sort of like the Take 5 bar from Hershey’s. It’s got everything, salty, sweet, chocolate, the wondermental reality of peanut butter AND a pretzel crunch. The obvious nature of this gospel should just be admitted. Face it CHICKS ROCK!
