Rhyming is so lame.

Lamer than the word seminal.

Nice... I've blown my wad, though... in a manner of speaking.
My brain's on the nod--I should be sleeping.

you're an old man
in the morning you'll rise
and eat your bran
and then you'll revise
your retirement plan

I once had a friend whose name was Fred.
We got drunk together and rode laughing on the bus.
I think I'm going to hit the hay, go to bed.
Did you know in England a bundle of hay is a truss?

-a) cream: popularized the power trio format and long form improvisation, first band of rock musicians to be "virtuosos", one of the first bands to have a poet as a lyricist.
b) derek and the dominos and blind faith: some of the first bands to be called "supergroups".
c) clapton solo: first rock dinosaur to adopt reggae, one of the first solo guitarists to achieve stardom.

-the dead boys: arguably not seminal, if seen as just another garage band in a long sucession since the 60's; yet many punk bands still consider them the epitome of punk itself and influential to their attitude (as generic as it was). maybe this one is not clearly seminal but probably the most boring band out of that scene.

the dead also probably are responsible for rave, in that their shows were at big outdoor fields where a buncha young folks (and later, pathetically old folks) get out of their heads on psychedelic drugs and dance to dumb music. i actually enjoy some of the deads improv live stuff though, and ive been to raves, im not pretentious enough to say i dont like eating a buncha ecstasty and dancing with dumb girls holding glow sticks, its pretty liberating. im a retard i know.

i was going to say elvis costello too, but he doesn't really figures as a very seminal figure, he's more like an interpreter of songs, like michael bolton, except he sings his own shitty songs.
