One of the best classic Rock songs I’ve ever heard, just listen to the guitar and it comes from a rhythm and blues singer. Which might sound strange, but if you listen to lets say the rock band Aerosmith and how Joe Perry sounds on guitar and then listen to Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, Jimmi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and then listen to a Janet Jackson, or a Aretha Franklin, the Blues Brothers, the sounds are very similar. The beat is similar, but different enough that you know that it’s two styles of music and not one style with two different names. I think it would have been a stretch for Janet to play and sing to country or classical music, but rhythm and blues and classic rock and perhaps even hard rock, are very similar. Which is one reason I love both and are really the only two sounds of music that I listen to at all. I’ll listen to Aerosmith just to hear Joe Perry on guitar. And Aerosmith is a great classic rock band and they’re more than just Joe Perry, but Perry alone by himself I believe is all you need to hear to know that they’re a great band. Janet sounds like a great rocker chick here and I believe at least part of that has to do from going to r and b to classic rock.
