Starting in August 1817, Mohr was asked to provide temporary assistance to the Oberndorf parish priest Josef Kessler. In October, he was officially named to the open position of assistant priest (Koadjutor). Around this same time, his supervisor was replaced with the parish priest Georg Heinrich Nöstler. As the village of Oberndorf possessed no proper vicarage for its priests, Mohr would sleep in the church caretaker's house, while taking his meals generally in nearby "Gasthof" restaurants. Financial problems in the parish contributed to making the relationship between Mohr and Nöstler tense. Moreover, Nöstler was critical of his young assistant priest, accusing him of "neglecting his priestly duties, frequenting drinking locales, joking with persons of the opposite sex, and singing songs which do not edify." The deacon of nearby St. Georgen, who served as overseer of the Oberndorfer priests, along with the town leaders in Oberndorf, responded in writing saying these accusations were unfounded.
Singer Gloria Estefan was born September 1, 1957, in Havana, Cuba. As a toddler Estefan
fled Cuba with her family. In 1975 she met keyboardist Emilio Estefan, her future
husband, who led a band called the Miami Latin Boys. Estefan became the lead singer and
the band was renamed the Miami Sound Machine, before going on to score several Top 10
hits in the 1980s and 1990s. Estefan and her husband later produced a Broadway musical,
On Your Feet!, which featured the Miami Sound Machine's popular songs.
Crossover Pop Star
In 1985 the album Primitive Love, the band's first recording entirely in English, set off a string of hit singles. "Bad Boys" and "Words Get in the Way" made their way onto Billboard's Top 10 pop chart. Behind the scenes was the work of the trio known as the "Three Jerks": producer/drummer Joe Galdo and his partners, Rafael Vigil and Lawrence Dermer, who wrote, arranged and performed the majority of the music on Primitive Love and the follow-up album, Let It Loose (1987). As a band, the Miami Sound Machine developed a split personality. In the studio the Three Jerks and session players made records, and for concerts the road band, which included Garcia and Avila, performed. Estefan was the common denominator. Extensive tours, concerts in 40,000-seat stadiums and music videos on MTV and VH-1 made the Miami Sound Machine a leading U.S. band.
King Crimson originally grew out of the remnants of an unsuccessful trio called Giles, Giles & Fripp. Michael Giles (drums, vocals), Peter Giles (bass, vocals), and Robert Fripp (guitar) had begun working together in late 1967 after playing in a variety of bands.
Singer Linda Ronstadt was born on July 15, 1946, in Tucson, Arizona, and grew up surrounded by music. One of Ronstadt's early musical influences was the Mexican songs her father taught her and her siblings. Her mother played the ukulele and her father played the guitar. Following in her father's footsteps, she learned to play guitar, and performed with her brother and sister as a trio. While a student at Catalina High School, Ronstadt met local folk musician Bob Kimmel. A few years her senior, Kimmel moved to Los Angeles to pursue his music career, and tried to convince Ronstadt to do the same. She stayed put and enrolled at the University of Arizona in Tucson, but soon left school to join Kimmel in L.A. Ronstadt and Kimmel teamed up with Kenny Edwards to form the Stone Poneys, and the folk trio released their first album in 1967. The group enjoyed modest success with their second album, Evergreen Vol. 2, which was also released in 1967. However, their only hit was "Different Drum," which was written by Michael Nesmith of the Monkees.
Escuchar música puede tener efectos positivos como también dañinos.Uno de los beneficios más referidos es el llamado “Efecto Mozart”, que afirma que los fetos y bebés que escuchan música clásica tienden a estar más tranquilos, concentrados y abiertos a los estímulos. Además se descubrió que ese tipo de música fomenta el hábito de aprendizaje y es capaz de hacer más inteligentes y razonables a las personas, de acuerdo con una serie de estudios realizados en Miami, Florida, que determinaron los efectos que produce cada género musical en el cerebro y la respuesta del ser humano a estos estímulos. No obstante, cuando los participantes de la investigación fueron sometidos a escuchar reggaetón, los expertos observaron que el efecto es totalmente contrario al de la música clásica. Se descubrió que este tipo de música daña el hipotálamo, disminuye la capacidad cerebral, así como la memoria a corto plazo y en consecuencia, el aprendizaje cuesta más. Ya a fines del año pasado la otorrinolaringóloga chilena Catalina Matalón explicó el riesgo que implica para el oído humano este estilo musical, no sólo por el volumen al que son escuchados, sino por la estructura sonora de las canciones, por su composición de frecuencias.
