Formed in 1974, British heavy metal band Raven, fronted by brothers Mark and John Gallagher, began gaining a reputation with its self-described "athletic-rock;" essentially the band members dressed in athletic gear during their shows, including hockey masks and elbow pads that they would use to strike cymbals or distort vocals. They eventually gained a reputation with the rapidly growing thrash metal movement and toured Europe extensively. They continued touring and recording until 2001 when a wall fell on Mark Gallagher during a show, crushing his legs. Raven took a 5 year hiatus while Gallagher recovered, but has since resumed its tour schedule.
One of the most prolific artists of the 20th Century, Bob Dylan is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist who rose to recognition as a fixture of New York City's folk scene during the 1960s. With politically-charged lyrics and an unconventional approach to folk and pop music, he became an influential figure of the counterculture in the US while he documented the nation's social unrest through his songs. Though he invited criticism by using electronic instruments to create his brand of folk, his revolutionary songwriting style, particularly on the celebrated single "Like A Rolling Stone," and his fearless combinations of rock and roll, blues, gospel, jazz, and traditional folk shaped the nature of popular culture and continues to hold weight in today's protean music world.
