2018 JohnTalkRadio Shows-Timmons Brothers Guest Appearances

“The Kinks: An Influential, Powerful, and Provocative Legacy That Transcended the British Invasion”

Original airdate: Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 6pm  


The Timmons Brothers are back on John Talk Radio . 


 A British Invasion band that was quintessentially British was an anomaly in the 1960s, but The Kinks embraced their “Englishness”, by singing with their English accent about every day English life topics. Unlike many of their British contemporaries, The Kinks initially found commercial success with hard-driving rock numbers (such as “You Really Got Me” and “All Day and All of the Night”) to the point that music writers and other musicians have acknowledged the influence of the Kinks on the development of hard rock and heavy metal.  Queen guitarist Brian May credited the band with planting “the seed which grew into riff-based music.” The competitive, and not always harmonious nature of the Davies brothers, (Ray and Dave) created a complementary style of Dave’s “visceral and bam-from-the- gut” guitar style to Ray’s ability to write lyrics with a biting social commentary filled with cynical wit and intelligent satire that went beyond the boy-girl lyrics. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005, the Timmons Brothers will reveal why the Kinks may be the epitome of a paradox for being one of the most influential rock bands ever, but also one of the most underrated bands.

“An Assessment and Analysis of Artists Being Snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”

Original airdate: March 10, 2018  


 In October, 2015, the Timmons Brothers were the guests on JohnTalkRadio and revealed a list of Who’s Who in Rock ‘n’ Roll and the one quality to be on this list was to share a common bond of not being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Since the 2015 show, several induction ceremonies and lists of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees have been released. Rock historians (David and John) assess how the R and R Hall Of Fame has done in the last three years and give their recommendations for future inductees as well as analyze reasons some well qualified bands and performers have not been inducted or even nominated. Although the number of artists not inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame remains too numerous to give them their due in one show, you are encouraged to call into the show or join the chat room with a list of artists, genres, or eras you passionately support as you are growing tired of them being snubbed.
