In the beginning of 60 - groups like “The Beatles",” The Rolling Stones” change the rock by accessioning greater sounds, heavy guitars, loud drums and strong singers. That sound becomes the hard rock’s ground, and leaves a deep sign in my musical culture later. That style forms at last and becomes known at the end of 60s . Deep purple and Led Zeрpelin help out for its imposition with their first albums. Note that then the world indices are already consolidated.
During the 70s the assortment of other genres evolves from the hard rock. Queen mixes hard rock and heavy metal, progressive, even opera.
Like every economic trend, and the musical one makes corrections.
In 1980 Led Zeрpelin breaks after the drummer’s sudden death. The AC/DC’s vocal- Bon Scott dies in the same year. Thereupon the fact, I have reason to suspect the end of the first from third wave of "classical" hard rocks-bands.
Some groups like Queen even goes away from hard rock sounding, they oriented to the pop-rock.
The end of 80’s, according to my screenings is the most successful period for the hard rock music.
Based on the wave counting, I suppose to expect third of a third wave. The first places in the musical rankings have been reached by hard rocks bands mostly. Bon Jovy’s "Slippery when wet" (1986) stays for 8 weeks in ” Billboard” ranking. Europe’s "The final countdown" reaches a number-1 in 26 countrys. In 1987, the most mind - blowing albums are" Appetite for destruction" of Guns’n Roses, and Def Leppard’s “Hysteria”. I know that I cut quite great names in hard rock and their interpretation in the rankings, therefore expect all fans to forgive me.
In the beginning of 90 appears new combination: punk and heavy metal and other styles . The bands who make this manner are Nirvana ... . . I do not remember about others. I offer to label this period as a fifth of third wave. Then launches a range of genres with hard core, rap and soul mixture. I intentionally missed to enrich my musical culture, because I prefer the classics.
I have the reason to suspect beginning of wave four around the beginning of the new millennium.This period begins I think with apathy about the fans and the rocks-bands. The concert manifestations are rarity, probably due to the concern about avian flu infection, anthrax or terrorist assaults. The world indices as well went in corrections . The fourth waves have consolidating character .
Fifth waves are usually based on extreme and mindless optimism. Their form is different and depends on previous 1st and 3th waves proportion.
In the beginning of the new century older and gray, some of my favourite groups begun to make songs, singles as well, validated their concert activity and even visited my country few times.
I offer this period to be labeled as wave number five. During this wave i was really happy, because one of my dreams came true. I had the opportunity to watch my favourite rock bands live. I visited in a three years period Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Ronnie James Dio and Rainbow, who brought dose of harmony in my soul.
The most famous recent hard rock-bands have members from last century groups. For example “Velvet revolver” has member of the ex Guns’n Roses. These groups make secondary meetings out and events
Led Zeppelin export one concert and revive the hard rock-pastime again.
According to Elliott Wave Model if we have five waves in one direction suppose to expect three waves (A B C) in the backward direction.
I have reasons to think that the correction has already begun. What exactly do I can expect in times after this correction still can only imagine, but possibly the rock music will receive some other kind of sounding. I really hope that kind of the rock to sound like Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rainbow, AC /DС, Def Leppard and other rock dinosaurs.
