Dire Straits emerged during the post-punk era of the late '70s, and while their sound was minimalistic and stripped down, they owed little to punk. If anything, the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock, but where pub rock celebrated good times, Dire Straits were melancholy. Led by guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections, occasionally dipping into the epic song structures of progressive rock. The band's music was offset by Knopfler's lyrics, which approximated the winding, stream-of-conscious narratives of Bob Dylan. As their career progressed, Dire Straits became more refined and their new maturity happened to coincide with the rise of MTV and the compact disc. These two musical revolutions from the mid-'80s helped make Dire Straits' sixth album, Brothers in Arms, an international blockbuster. The band -- along with Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, and Steve Winwood -- become one of the leaders of a group of self-consciously mature veteran rock & rollers in the late '80s that designed their music to appeal to aging baby boomers. Despite the band's international success, they couldn't sustain their stardom, waiting a full six years to deliver a follow-up to Brothers in Arms, by which time their audience had shrunk significantly.

One of the best 1980's and 1990's singer Gloria Estefan
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.

Períto agrónomo, hijo de una familia obrera que vivía en el barrio barcelonés del Poble Sec
Joan Manuel Serrat
(Barcelona, 1943) Cantautor español. Hijo de una familia obrera que vivía en el barrio barcelonés del Poble Sec (a lo que alude su apodo El noi del Poble Sec), se graduó como perito agrónomo, profesión que nunca llegaría a ejercer. Su primera presentación en público como cantautor tuvo lugar en 1965, en Radio Barcelona; ese mismo año entró a formar parte del grupo Els Setze Jutges. Dos años después editaría su primer álbum, con el sello Edigsa.
Serrat fue uno de los iniciadores de la Nova Cançó catalana, generación de cantautores contestatarios que reivindicaron el uso del catalán durante la dictadura franquista y que componían sus letras al modo poético e intimista de sus inspiradores de la chanson francesa. Pero Joan Manuel, hijo de padre catalán y madre aragonesa, pronto empezó a cantar también en castellano, y eso lo hizo candidato a representar a España en el festival de Eurovisión de 1968. Serrat decidió finalmente no participar si no podía hacerlo en catalán, y la canción preparada para él, La, la, la, acabó siendo interpretada por Massiel, que ganó el festival. Por aquella renuncia estuvo vetado en la televisión y en las emisoras de radio estatales durante casi diez años.

"Blue Bayou," became her major hit at that time
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.

Guns and Roses
It is good to hear November Rain
Guns N' Roses
When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you
Don't you know I feel the same
'Cause nothin' lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain
We've been through this such a long long time
Just tryin' to kill the pain
But lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
If we could take the time
To lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin' that you were mine
So if you want to love me
Then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin'
In the cold November rain
Do you need some time on your own
Do you need some time all alone
Everybody needs some time on their own
