Why is Pop AOR called Westcoast?

Recommended Posts

... and why do people who like it speak so ill of the current popular rock scene when it is so clearly a poorer form of music. ;)

 

It does amuse me to see people get testy over hard rock bands being put onto the site when all this kind of stuff is all over it. :)

It has to do with the great gangsta wars between the eastcoast and westcoast melodic rock bands. Layin' down harmonies against one another. Fo shizzle.

 

Word!

 

They would also flip different hand signs depending on where they were from.

As far as I understood it, the battles they had were actually love battles. Rather than murdering each other with weapons, they smothered each other with love.

A bit of an orgy? Is that what you're saying?

Indeed. An all male orgy.

I knew there was a reason I didn't listen to it. Were you and Matt at any of those?

No, they're for fat old dudes. Matt and I go to the all-male orgies with all the young hottiez with washboard stomachs.

I for some reason thought that fluffy, pink drinks were the prefered beverage of AOR/Westcoast listeners.

I'm sure it was something to do with the music of bands like the Beach Boys, that were based on the west coast, and as such, the light weight pop rock they were famous for became known as west coast!

Still waiting for a sensible answer.

Anyone?

Did we not give it to you? I thought Geoff and I layed it out simple enough for anyone to grasp.

Wow, that sounds wrong.

Can't believe you didn't consider Dan's answer "sensibile." :wacko:

Westcoast as a genre is pretty wide musically and can include such artists like thecool sounds of George Benson & Al Jarreau to the more lighter rock style of Airplay, David Roberts, Nielsen/Pearson, Jay Graydon and a lot of stuff inbetween like Robbie Dupree, Jay Ferguson, Greg Guidry etc etc. Basically it is another genre that has been bastardised over the years to include alot of AOR bands aswell. Alot of the true Westcoast artists probably wouldn't appear on the pages of HH in my opinion, but a few have sneaked in over the years.

    • Try the first 3...s/t , One Step Closer , Dance In The Fire...but they do have a couple of best of's...Decade I & II...as you say the studio albums contain filler but some good quality stuff also.
    • FOREIGNER’s MICK JONES issues statement: “Fans will have become very aware that for some time now, I have not been performing onstage with the band. A number of years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I want everyone to know that I am doing alright, however, l've always liked to be at my best when performing onstage, and sadly at present find that a bit difficult. I'm still very much involved in the background with Foreigner and remain a presence. Parkinson's is a daily struggle; several of my friends are also dealing with the disease. The important thing is to persevere with the loving support of my family, and remind myself of the wonderful career l've had in music. I thank all the fans who have supported Foreigner throughout the years and continue to attend our concerts. Please know I appreciate your support; it always means so very much to me, especially so at this point in my life.”
    • Does anyone have some recommendations on where to start with this band? It seems like every album I try listening to has some good songs but also a lot of filler...
    • Good news, I really like Confess :-)
    • Great band and they've been on fire since they got this vocalist but that's not a great choice for a single IMO. It just kind of meanders along.
    • Good call. He's a bloody good keyboard maestro let's be fair.
    • Vinyl only bonus tracks pisses me off. Why? A cd could fit the bonus tracks far easier. Jerks. I'm annoyed about that.
    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name (out April 19th). Tracklisting: 1. From The Start 2. Defiance 3. Feelin' Lucky 4. I Surrender 5. Forever In My Heart 6. Never Can Say Goodbye 7. One Heart 8. Give It Up 9. Nightswim 10. Standing Tall 11. Let’s See    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
