Notorious B.I.G.

Notorious B.I.G.

     Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997), popularly known as Biggie Smalls (after a gangster in the 1975 film Let’s Do It Again),[1] Big Poppa, Frank White (from the film King of New York), and his primary stage name, The Notorious B.I.G., was an American rapper.
     One of the best to ever grip a mic, Biggie’s Bed-Stuy crime tales, player lifestyle, and untimely death made him a legend. His 1994 debut, “Ready To Die,” featured the classic hits “Juicy,” “Big Poppa,” and “One More Chance.” Biggie was murdered in 1997. His posthumous LPs include “Life After Death” and “Born Again.” Biggie helped make stars out of Lil’ Kim, Jay-Z, Ma$e, the Lox, and Puff Daddy. He called himself Frank White after Christopher Walken’s character in the film “King Of New York.”
     Born in Brooklyn, New York, Biggie grew up during the peak years of the 1980s’ crack epidemic and started dealing drugs at an early age. When Biggie debuted with the 1994 record Ready to Die, he was a central figure in the East Coast and increased New York’s viability at a time when hip hop was mostly dominated by West Coast artists.[2] The following year, Biggie led his childhood friends to chart success through his protégé group, Junior M.A.F.I.A.

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson

     Janet Damita Jo Jackson (born May 16, 1966) is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer and actress. Born in Gary, Indiana and raised in Encino, California, she is the youngest member of the Jackson family of musicians. She initially performed on stage with her family beginning at the age of seven, and later started her career as an actress with the variety television series The Jacksons. She went on to star in other television shows including Good Times, A New Kind of Family, Diff’rent Strokes, and Fame.
     A member of the Jackson clan, Janet broke out with the highly successful “Control” and hasn’t looked back since. Jackson’s early career boasts two TV stints: “Good Times” (1977-79) and “Diff’rent Strokes” (1981-82). Jackson became the first artist in history to squeeze seven Billboard Top Five singles out of one album (”Rhythm Nation”). It was Janet Jackson who (inadvertently) put the term “wardrobe malfunction” into the American lexicon. In 2006, Janet Jackson released the album, “20 Y.O.” which celebrated the performer’s 20 years of hit making.
     Jackson faced initial difficulties after launching her recording career in 1982, often criticized for having a limited vocal range and being yet another child from the Jackson family to become a recording artist. However, with the collaboration of record producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Jackson found record-breaking success, producing five consecutive number one studio albums on the Billboard 200; these include Control (1986), Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989), janet. (1993), The Velvet Rope (1997), and All for You (2001). Although critics have compared her contemporary work less favorably to that of her initial breakthroughs, the critical and commercial success of her innovative multi-platinum albums, music videos and choreography have contributed to Jackson’s successful career as an entertainer.

REM

REM

     R.E.M. is an American rock band formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1980 by Michael Stipe (lead vocals), Peter Buck (guitar), Mike Mills (bass guitar), and Bill Berry (drums and percussion). R.E.M. was one of the first popular alternative rock bands, and gained early attention due to Buck’s ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe’s unclear vocals. R.E.M. released its first single, “Radio Free Europe”, in 1981 on the independent record label Hib-Tone. The single was followed by the Chronic Town EP in 1982, the band’s first release on I.R.S. Records. In 1983, the band released its critically acclaimed debut album Murmur, and built its reputation over the next few years through subsequent releases, constant touring, and the support of college radio. Following years of underground success, R.E.M. achieved a mainstream hit in 1987 with the single “The One I Love”. The group signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1988, and began to espouse political and environmental concerns while playing large arenas worldwide.
     R.E.M.’s jangling guitars, mysterious-but-melodic vocals and DIY touring method pretty much defined 1980s indie rock. Their first single, “Radio Free Europe” (b/w “Sitting Still”), was released in July of 1981 on the Hib-Tone label. R.E.M. released one EP and five LPs on indie label IRS between 1982 and 1987, then signed with Warner Brothers in 1988. Each release won them more fans: “Document” (1987) went platinum; “Green,” their Warner’s debut, sold twice that. Drummer Bill Berry suffered a brain aneurysm on tour in ‘95; two years later, he quit the band.
     By the early 1990s, when alternative rock began to experience broad mainstream success, R.E.M. was viewed as a pioneer of the genre and released its two most commercially successful albums, Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People (1992), which veered from the band’s established sound. R.E.M.’s 1994 Monster was a return to a more rock-oriented sound. The band began its first tour in six years to support the album; the tour was marred by medical emergencies suffered by three band members. In 1996, R.E.M. re-signed with Warner Bros. for a reported US$80 million, at the time the most expensive recording contract in history. The following year, Bill Berry left the band amicably, with Buck, Mills, and Stipe continuing as a three-piece. Through some changes in musical style, the band continued its career into the next decade with mixed critical and commercial success. In 2007, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Queen

Queen

     Queen are a British rock band formed in 1970 in London by guitarist Brian May, lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, and drummer Roger Taylor, with bass guitarist John Deacon joining the following year. Queen rose to prominence during the 1970s and have sold over 300 million albums worldwide.
     Queen’s excessive blend of metal and majesty was one of the biggest draws of the ’70s. In England, Queen is second only to the Beatles in terms of popularity and collectibility of their music. It took the band three weeks to record what is probably their most famous song, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” On Queen’s first American tour in 1974, they supported Mott the Hoople. Singer Freddie Mercury died of AIDS in 1991.
     The band is noted for their musical diversity, multi-layered arrangements, vocal harmonies, and incorporation of audience participation into their live performances. Their 1985 Live Aid performance was voted the best live rock performance of all time in an industry poll.
