Rock and Roll:  A music representing a lifestyle of doing what you want and living your life the way you wish to.  Freedom of speech and expression.
(Urban Dictionary)

Underground:  Art, opinion or organization that exists ouside of mainstream society or culture.
(Urban Dictionary)
"I'm not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman.  I'm living on"  David Bowie
Although this weeks muse is rock and roll underground,  I'm not here to discuss the meaning of r&r (hell, you already know what music means to you, right?), nor am I here to discuss favorite artists or songs.  Let's talk about the wide span of influence that rock and rock stars have on design and culture.
When Braxton and I were throwing around ideas for this post, we kept coming back to one thing....rock stars and rock music have tremendous influence on our lives, asthetically and culturally....which got us thinking and talking about what it means to be influential.  In my/our opinion in order to influence, one must first have an original thought.  In other words....rock stars (and others) are influential because they show us something new.
My challange to you this week is....have a new thought...about yourself and your life and act accordingly.  If we continue to think and do as we always have (and as our parents and their parents did before them) we don't evolve, and evolution is the point, right? 

"A good thing never ends"  Mick Jagger

Proof you don't have to be a rock star to dress like one.

 "Lose your dreams and you might lose your mind"  Mick Jagger

"I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human"  David Bowie

"A painter's got a canvas.  The writer's got reams of empty paper.  A musician has silence"  Keith Richards
"  We all have our own personal laborataries.  Life is an experiment, and it's just a matter of getting the alchemical combination right"  Keith Richards                      

 You know we'll be discussing rock and roll influences on fashion and interior design.
The hard rock hotel and casino in Vegas.
Let's talk about the asthetic influence of rock and roll.
Raise your hand if you want to be a rock star!
Have a beautiful day.
