FROM DIGITAL DREAM DOOR

Jesse Stone

No less a figure than Ahmet Ertegun said - "Jesse Stone is more responsible for the basic rock 'n' roll sound than anyone". Among those yet to be inducted Stone's omission is possibly the most disgraceful, for it was he who most shaped the entire direction of early rock 'n' roll while working as a songwriter, arranger and de facto producer at Atlantic Records in the 50's. While all three of Atlantic's ownership brain trust are in, and Ertegun has the whole museum named after him, the true genius of the musical side of their empire, without whom they'd have been just another floundering independent company, remains locked out of the shrine altogether. Further shame is due the voters because Stone was in his late nineties and still writing songs when he died a few years ago, meaning he was still around in the flesh to be honored publicly and they failed to even consider it. If there is a rock 'n' roll heaven, Stone is now leading the band. If there is a rock 'n' roll hell, the voters who didn't elect him in his lifetime had better get their travel plans ready.

FROM THE DIGITAL DREAM DOOR

Jesse Stone

The man of whom Atlantic Records founder and Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame visionary Ahmet Ertegun once said "Jesse Stone is more responsible for the basic rock 'n' roll sound than anyone". Twenty-five years late Stone finally gets inducted into the shrine that, without him, might not exist for the music itself might not have existed as we know it. The fact that Stone died in his late 90's a few years back and thus didn't live to accept this honor in the flesh as was his right is deplorable. Why is Stone so important in rock history? The ex-bandleader from the 1930's was Atlantic's main musical arranger and he studied the sounds emerging in the late 40's and broke them down to their core essentials - the bluesy strains coming from the south, the vocal harmonies brought from from the cities, the passion taken from gospel, the emphasis on the backbeat - and honed them on a series of records by the Clovers, Ruth Brown, Ray Charles and the Drifters, and with it rock 'n' roll took definite shape. He didn't invent it, but he fine-tuned it and gave rock a basic blueprint to follow, which it has done ever since. A giant whose name should be known and revered by every rock fan.
