"Touch that dial, turn me on
Start me like a motor, make me run
Lovin' every minute of it "
What comes to mind when you read those two little words?
It's nothing 'classic' like lace doilies or Johann Sebastian Bach;
and it's surely not igneous, metamorphic & sedimentary.
(har dee har har...)
The term 'Classic Rock' is loosely used. It means something slightly different to just about any person you might ask. I can tell you three words that will come to mind for just about anyone when the word Classic is said right before the word Rock...
Rock & Roll.
I'm not here today to debate what is or is not 'Classic Rock'.
I'm here today to talk about the Fashion within those two little words.
Four amazing musicians.
Four gorgeous men.
Let's be honest people, these men exude sex, drugs, and Rock & Roll with their fashion. Fashion has been and still is a major part of the music industry. It's a way for artists to create a visual persona that walks hand in hand with their musical persona.
Fashion can make or break musicians in the 'industry'.
I enjoy celebrating all different types of Fashion in my day to day life
and also with the use of this nifty little blog! (woohoo!)
Last night I went out to Karaoke with some new friends from work. I was feeling a little Rockish due to the fact that I was listening to 'Joan Jett Radio' on my Pandora. Needless to say, my outfit was modeled after these fore-mentioned rockers. I did the Sebastian hairdo and i threw on one of those sexy Steven scarves; but I tied it around my head like Axl always did with the bandanna. Slash sported cut off tees or tanks a lot so I tried a more feminine version of that with a split-backed tank top.
Of course I did the leather embellished leggings and the studded leather boots as well.
Come on. Get real.
Leather = Sex,Drugs, Rock & Roll
I will forever & always be enamored by the laid-back, slightly disheveled, sexy look that my rock idols wore and wear in their time onstage and off. My proverbial 'hat' is off to you, gentlemen.
(I need to get one of those hats like Slash wore.)
