    The Dave Clark Five used to be the Dave Clark Six until the second guitar player started plotting to replace Dave with a "better" drummer.

    This happened before the internet, so the BL (Dave) fired the guitar player.

  2. It was a risk firing that 6th member primarily because the Dave Clark 5 was actually 11 people. They would play two gigs each night; 5 at each gig. The eleventh member was the sub, just in case anyone didn't make a gig. By firing that member, they had no ready sub in case of illness, injury, or being lost. The increased risk eventually lead to the break up of the band.

    Freed from Dave Clark however, 9 members went on to form the Four Seasons.

  4. That is because they no longer teach Jazz Construction in most public schools. I blame this on the Great Jazz blackouts in World War II ...

  5. Although jazz was rationed during WWII, there was always plenty to go around. The abundance of jazz during the 50s and 60s lead to rock n roll and there was a backlash in the form of blues rock by the end of the 60s. Of course, blues rock went on to create heavy metal. By the 80s, jazz was recognized as gateway music and it's availability was curtailed, requiring proof of age 21+ to purchase. That is why there is no jazz in schools - because of heavy metal.

    This. Plus the implementation of A=440Hz as the Universal Turning Standard, was the catalyst for Western music decline.

    Gregorian chant has a long history, though most people just think of it as an offshoot of 90s New Age music.

    Correct. I've been told it also helped to establish Windham Hill Records.

    You think that's bad - the Germans used Shrage Musik (Jazz music) to down RAF bombers during WW II. I can only presume that the evil teutonic jazz was some early form of bebop that made the pilots want to crash rather than continue to listen to it, being only used to the likes of Glen Miller and Benny Goodman. Basically, negative waves, man.

    The chants of Trappist monks never really caught on, mostly due to being sued by the John Cage estate.

    My wife said: "This isn't disinformation. Please stop trying to take me to see jazz or prog rock where there are seven people all playing different songs"

    Also the Dave Clark Six tour of New Zealand got banned as it was confused with some sort of roaming orgy.

  13. Except for prog rock that adopted H=440 (using the 13 semitone scale)

  14. All those prog rock musicians are playing the same songs. They just aren't playing them at the same time. Everyone knows that prog rock is just blues with each musician having a differently ordered set list.

    H=440 is why prog is so popular in Germany.

  16. I'm still waiting for Rammstein to invent J so that we can start work on the 14 semi-tone scale

    Leo got there first in 1960 with his second major bass model. And we're back to Jazz.

    Fusion was even worse - jazz cut with other music to make it both go further and seem more palatable.

  19. in the 1930's heavy metal rock was ban in 43 States, most everyone who wanted to play metal had to move to MAIN or Idaho. this kept metal out of the hands of children until the law was repealed in the 1970's
     
  20. Fortunately the constitutional amendment to end metal in the US failed to gain the requisite support in the Senate (the most metal branch of the US government).
