God Gave Rock and Roll to You
"God Gave Rock and Roll to You" is a 1973 song by the British band Argent and covered by both Petra, in 1977 and 1984, Kiss in 1991, both with modified lyrics. Argent recorded the song in 1971 during the sessions for their album All Together Now, but it did not appear as an album track until 1973's In Deep, was released as a successful single at that time; the 1997 CD re-release of All Together Now has the track included as a bonus. The original lyrics include a reference to British pop singer Cliff Richard, known for his Christianity; the Christian rock band Petra first released a cover version of the song in their 1977 album Come and Join Us. This version had modified lyrics in the verses from the Argent original, while the chorus remained unchanged. Petra re-recorded and released a somewhat updated version for their 1984 album Beat the System. In 1989, the British band the Truth released a version. In 1991, the song was notably covered by Kiss under the title "God Gave Rock'N' Roll to You II".
This version's lyrics and arrangement more followed the Petra version of the song. It was released for the film Ted's Bogus Journey; the song has been covered by Bride featuring rap group DOC and by Midtown. Unrest remade the song as "God Gave Rock & Roll To You III" for their 1992 Bavarian Mods EP. God Gave Rock'N' Roll to You II was covered by the American hard rock band Kiss, with the track being released as a single in 1991 from the soundtrack to the movie Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, it was included on Kiss' 1992 album Revenge. Though the power ballad covered the original Argent 1973 version "God Gave Rock and Roll to You", it had modified lyrics in the verses, thus the reason behind the slight change in the name of the song, it is one of the few songs from Kiss"non-makeup era' to be played live since the band returned to wearing their trademark makeup in 1996. It was the last Kiss song to feature longtime drummer Eric Carr before his death three months after it was released as a single. Although he was too ill to play drums on the track, he is featured on backing vocals during the a cappella break, singing the repeated line "...to everyone, he gave a song to be sung", as well as performing drums during the video for the song.
The drum tracks were recorded by Eric Singer, who would become Kiss' full-time drummer, following Carr's death. The single was the first to feature Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley sharing lead vocals since "I" from 1981's Music from "The Elder"; the video was directed by Mark Rezyka. The video was edited by Scott C. Wilson, it features the band playing in a hangar at Van Nuys Airport with flashbacks of Simmons and Stanley and their old bandmates Peter Criss and Ace Frehley during the make-up era of Kiss's heyday. There were no prominent clips of Carr during the make-up years featured in the video though he was a part of that era for three-and-a-half-years. During the Kissology Volume Two: 1978-1991 special aired on VH1 classic, Gene Simmons has stated that, "It's not just a cover song for a soundtrack, but a testament to Eric Carr, I think a lot of people don't realize that." The song proved to be a big hit for the band in many parts of the world, including making the Top Ten in the United Kingdom and Germany.
It reached number 21 on Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in the US, as well as its video receiving heavy rotation on music television channels. The version released as a single and on the soundtrack to Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey differs from that played in the film. In the film, a 40-second guitar solo is played by Steve Vai, it was included on Steve Vai's album The Elusive Light and Sound, Vol. 1 under the title "Final Solo". "God Gave Rock and Roll to You II" would be included on the Kiss album Alive III, released in 1993.

Petra is a music group regarded as a pioneer of the Christian rock and contemporary Christian music genres. Formed in 1972, the band took its name from the Greek word for "rock". Though it disbanded formally in 2006, incarnations have played reunion shows in the years since and released an album in November 2010. In 2013, it reformed with a new drummer, Cristian Borneo, recorded a new song titled "Holy is Your Name", before going back on tour. With a style similar to The Eagles and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Petra's sound evolved into a more energetic, driving rock sound in the early 1980s akin to Foreigner and Journey. Throughout the 1980s and into the early 1990s, Petra was one of the world's most popular Christian rock bands, with each of its albums during that period selling hundreds of thousands of copies while the band sold out arenas and placed songs at the top of Christian radio charts. With its lyrics and style, Petra influenced numerous other artists at a time when Christian rock experienced strong opposition from many conservative pastors and churches.
In more than three decades, the band experienced numerous lineup changes yet released 20 studio albums, as well as two Spanish-language and two live albums, selling nearly 10 million copies while being nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, winning four, winning 10 Dove Awards. Its biggest hit, "The Coloring Song", reached the top position on three Christian radio charts and at its peak, the band's tours rivaled Amy Grant's in popularity among Christian audiences. Petra was the first rock band inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and the first Christian band whose memorabilia was included in the Hard Rock Cafe restaurant chain; the band announced its retirement in 2005, launching a farewell tour, recorded for release on CD and DVD. Petra's 33-year career ended with a performance in the early hours of January 1, 2006, in Murphy, North Carolina. However, the band has continued to perform sporadically since then. In November 2010, an incarnation of the band's mid-1980s lineup surfaced under the name Classic Petra.
It released an album, Back to the Rock, featuring one new song, one song taken from Greg X. Volz's 2009 album God Only Knows, as well as re-recordings of hits from that era; the band released a companion live CD and DVD in 2011. Petra's style changed over the decades in an effort to remain relevant to the youth it was trying to reach but remained within the rock genre implied by its name. At its inception, the band's style was eclectic, borrowing from musical influences as diverse as The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Kansas. Early albums featured. In the 1980s, the band began using synthesizers to complement its guitar-based rock. Early in the decade, Petra produced a straightforward pop/rock sound reminiscent of Foreigner, while using synthesizers and techno-style effects as the decade progressed. By the late 1980s, Petra used a change in vocalists to embrace a guitar-based hard rock style similar to Def Leppard and Journey – a style that, along with the growing popularity of Christian rock as a whole, led to Petra's peak success.
With the rise of alternative rock in the mid-1990s, the band's albums subsequently featured an increasing reliance on acoustic guitars and mellower tunes, including a acoustic album. Petra returned to its roots with a hard rock album in 2003, while the 2010 Classic Petra reunion was billed as an effort to re-record some of the band's early 1980s hits "with a modern edge", it included two new songs that fit within the guitar- and keyboard-based rock style that marked much of the band's early career. In the early 1970s, songwriter and guitarist Bob Hartman met bassist John DeGroff and formed the band Dove, which he disbanded when DeGroff left to attend a Bible school in Fort Wayne, known as the Christian Training Center. Hartman soon followed, in 1972 he and DeGroff joined two classmates, guitarist Greg Hough and drummer Bill Glover, to form Petra; the band played small Midwest venues such as churches and parks, to share the message of Christianity with concertgoers. Glover said on an interview "we weren't picky and we wanted to get God's Word out to our peers.
We would set up in parking lots, college campuses, coffee houses, etc." A frequent venue was a Fort Wayne Christian-themed coffeehouse named The Adam's Apple. This mix of evangelism with rock placed Petra among the early pioneers of Jesus Music, part of the larger counterculture Jesus Movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Church authorities struggled with and opposed the use of churches for rock concerts, few Christian radio stations, with the exception of some college-based signals, would play the band's songs. Petra was criticized for its rock sound, a hint of the opposition it would experience as its popularity grew. Petra's unique blend of style and message attracted the attention of the newly created Myrrh Records' Paul Craig Paino, who convinced the label's founder, Billy Ray Hearn, to attend one of the band's concerts at The Adam's Apple. Hearn signed Petra in 1973 to record its debut album. Hearn said he knew Petra was "the most radical thing around... as far out as anything that had come out until that time."With no lead vocalist and Hough shared singing duties on the self-titled debut, released in 1974.
Featuring "tight, Allman Brothers-type dual guitar lines and riffs", Petra featured the comical country tune "Lucas McGraw", which became something of a cult classic, the seminal "Backslidin' Blues", the first contemporary Christian blues song put on vinyl. The rarity of being a Christian rock ba

Paul Daniel "Ace" Frehley is an American musician and songwriter best known as the original lead guitarist, occasional lead vocalist and co-founding member of the rock band Kiss. He invented the persona of The Spaceman and played with the group from its inception in 1973 until his departure in 1982. After leaving Kiss, Frehley embarked on a solo career, put on hold when he rejoined Kiss in 1996 for a successful reunion tour. Frehley's second tenure with Kiss lasted until 2002, when he left at the conclusion of what was purported to be the band's Farewell Tour, his most recent solo album, was released on October 19, 2018. Guitar World magazine ranked him as the 14th Greatest Metal Guitarist of All Time. Outside Kiss, Frehley had commercial success, with his first solo album going platinum, his first album with his "Frehley's Comet" band was a big seller. Frehley is known for the use of many "special effects" guitars, including a Gibson Les Paul guitar that emits smoke from the neck humbucker pickup and produces spinning pyrotechnics, a custom Les Paul that emits light based on song tempo.
Paul Daniel Frehley was born and raised in The Bronx of New York City, the youngest of three children of Esther Anna and Carl Daniel Frehley. His father, from Pennsylvania, was the son of Dutch immigrants, his mother is from North Carolina, he has a brother Charles, a classical guitarist. The Frehleys were a musical family, when Frehley received an electric guitar as a Christmas present in 1964, he immersed himself in learning the instrument. "I never went to music school. My mother and father both played piano, his father was the church organist, my brother and sister both played piano and acoustic guitar." Frehley was always surrounded by music. Frehley started playing guitar at age 13, he lists Jimi Hendrix, Albert Lee, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, B. B. King, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who as his main influences. Growing up on the corner of Marion Avenue and 201st Street, off Bedford Park Boulevard and Webster Avenue in the Bedford Park section of the Bronx, Frehley graduated from Grace Lutheran School at age 13.
Two of the high schools he attended were DeWitt Clinton High School on Mosholu Parkway and Theodore Roosevelt High School on Fordham Road. He got the nickname "Ace" in high school from friends who said he was "a real ace" for his ability to get dates. In his high school years, a guidance counselor encouraged him to get into graphic arts, he credited guitar playing for "saving his life" as a member of Kiss. Frehley's earliest bands included The Outrage, The Four Roses, King Kong and The Magic People; when Frehley's band, began getting paying gigs, he dropped out of high school. At the insistence of his family and girlfriend, Frehley returned and earned a diploma. After graduation, Frehley held a string of short-term jobs—mail carrier, furniture deliverer and liquor store delivery person. Frehley spent the early 1970s in a series of local bands including one called Molimo who recorded half an album for RCA Records in 1971. In late 1972, his friend, Chris Cassone, spotted an advertisement for a lead guitarist in The Village Voice and showed the ad to Frehley.
Frehley went to 10 East 23rd Street above the Live Bait Bar. Frehley auditioned for Gene Simmons and Peter Criss for the band. Frehley, who showed up with best friend Chris Cassone, wearing one red and one orange sneaker, was less than impressive visually, but the band liked what they heard from his playing. About three weeks the band named Frehley as their lead guitarist. By January 1973, the band came up with the name Kiss. Frehley designed the band's double-lightning-bolt logo, polished up by Paul Stanley; the band decided to paint their faces for live performances, Frehley decided to start painting silver stars on his eyes. When the group decided to adopt stage personas to match their makeup and costumes, Frehley became Space Ace, his stage persona was known as The Spaceman. While Kiss spent their early days rehearsing and playing in empty clubs, Frehley worked as a part-time cab driver to pay bills. In September 1973, Kiss members began to receive a $50 a week salary from new manager Bill Aucoin, Frehley quit his cabbie job.
Kiss released their debut album, Kiss, in February 1974 – Frehley was credited for writing two songs, "Love Theme from KISS" and a fan classic, "Cold Gin". Due to Frehley's lack of confidence in his own singing voice, Simmons performed the vocals. Frehley wrote or co-wrote several of the band's songs over the next few years but did not record vocals on a song until "Shock Me", which appeared on 1977's Love Gun; as lead guitarist, Frehley was known for his frenetic, atmospheric playing, becoming one of the most popular guitarists in the 1970s and spawning a generation of new players. Frehley stated in the book Kiss: Behind the Mask that many guitarists have told him his playing on 1975's hit Alive! prompted them to pick up the instrument. Frehley is well-recognized for using Gibson Les Paul guitars, including his trademarked model conversion Les Paul Custom, which filled the stage full of smoke during his live guitar solo. Along with the three other Kiss members, Frehley released an eponymous solo album in 1978.
His was the best-selling of the four, the album's lone single—the Russ Ballard-written "New York Groove" recor
Santana is an American rock band formed in San Francisco, California in 1966 by Mexican-American guitarist Carlos Santana. The band came to public attention with their performance of "Soul Sacrifice" at Woodstock in 1969; this exposure helped propel their first album named Santana, into a hit, followed in the next two years by Abraxas and Santana III. Lineup changes were common. Carlos Santana's increasing involvement with guru Sri Chinmoy took the band into more esoteric music, though it never lost its Latin influence. In 1998, the band Santana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Carlos Santana, José "Chepito" Areas, David Brown, Gregg Rolie, Mike Carabello, Michael Shrieve; the band has earned nine Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, the latter all in 2000. Carlos Santana won a Grammy Award as a solo artist in 1988; the band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world's best-selling groups of all time. In 2013, Santana announced a reunion of the classic line-up for a new album, Santana IV, released in April 2016.
The band is tied with Michael Jackson for the record number of Grammy Awards won in one night. The band was formed in 1966 in San Francisco as the Santana Blues Band with the help of guitarist Tom Fraser; the first established members were Carlos Santana, Marcus Malone, Rod Harper, Gus Rodriguez and Gregg Rolie. The group's first audition with this line up was at the Avalon Ballroom in the late summer of 1967. After the audition, Chet Helms, in concert with the Family Dog, told the band that they would never make it in the San Francisco Music Scene playing Latin fusion and suggested Carlos keep his day job washing dishes at Tick Tock's Drive-In on 3rd Street. By the time Santana began work on its debut album Santana, Malone had left the band as he had been convicted of manslaughter and had started serving his sentence in Marin County's San Quentin State Prison. Ahead of Woodstock, Bill Graham was asked to help with logistics and planning. Graham agreed to lend his help only if a new band he was championing, an unknown band called Santana, was added to the bill.
Santana was announced as one of the performers at the Woodstock Festival. The band finished it in a month. Santana performed at the festival; that month, they released their debut album, which peaked at number 4 on the US Billboard 200 pop chart with the single "Evil Ways" being a top 10 single in the US. Santana started work on their next, Abraxas. Work began in mid-April 1970 at Wally Heider Studios in San Francisco and was completed in early May 1970; the album, highlighted by a reworking of Fleetwood Mac's "Black Magic Woman" that peaked at number 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100, was released in September 1970 and rose to number 1 on the US Billboard 200. From January to July 1971 Santana worked on Santana III. Released in September 1971, the album reached number 1 on the US Billboard 200. At the peak of the band's popularity, the album was the last to feature its classic Woodstock era line-up. Before recording their fourth album Caravanserai, there had been multiple line-up changes. Bassist David Brown left in 1971 before recording started and was replaced by Doug Rauch and Tom Rutley.
Percussionist Michael Carabello left Santana and was replaced with two percussionists, Armando Peraza and Mingo Lewis. Keyboardist/vocalist Gregg Rolie was replaced by Tom Coster on a few songs. Caravanserai debuted at number 8 despite not spawning a hit single. 13 months after Caravanserai, Santana released Welcome. Welcome was the first of four consecutive albums to achieve gold certification, as opposed to the previous four, which all at least reached platinum status; the album peaked at number 25 on the lowest of the band's career so far. The next few albums contained a more experimental style than their previous work, beginning with Borboletta, which fared arguably worse than its predecessor, despite climbing five spots on the US charts; the group's 1976 release, was far more successful. Reaching number 10 on the US charts, hitting the top 10 in France, New Zealand and the Netherlands, it was a return to the success of their early albums. Festival, somewhat contradicted that new-found success, but was a short blip before another successful album, released in 1977.
The album was the most successful since Santana III, achieving 2x platinum in the US, being the first album since 1974's Borboletta, to break the top 10 in the UK. It was characterized by a stylistic shift for the band, as it contained heavier influences from the more conventional sound of the group's early work, while still maintaining the experimental sound of their last few albums, their next two releases, Inner Secrets and Marathon, released in 1978 and'79 were a further musical shift for the band, moving away from the Latin-fused rock music that had characterized their work in the late 1960s and the majority of the'70s, to move towards a more album-oriented, conventional rock sound. These albums, fared poorly commercially, although both achieved gold status in the US; the 1980s started brightly for Santana, with 1981's platinum-selling Zebop!, which reached the top 20 in several countries, continued the more conventional rock sound. The following year, Shangó was released; the group waited another three years to release the follow-up, the longest break for
Roger Harry Daltrey is an English singer and actor. Daltrey is the founder and lead singer of the rock band the Who, which released 14 singles that entered the Top 10 charts in the United Kingdom during the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, including "I Can't Explain", "My Generation", "Substitute", "I'm a Boy", "Happy Jack", "Pictures of Lily", "Pinball Wizard", "Won't Get Fooled Again", "You Better You Bet".

Since he has released eight studio albums, five compilation albums, one live album, his solo hits include "Giving It All Away", "Walking the Dog", "Written on the Wind", "Free Me", "Without Your Love", "Walking in My Sleep", "After the Fire", "Under a Raging Moon". In 2010, he was ranked as number 61 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest singers of all time. Daltrey is famed for energetic stage presence; as a member of the Who, Daltrey received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Phonographic Industry in 1988, from the Grammy Foundation in 2001.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. The Who are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century, selling over 100 million records worldwide, he and Pete Townshend received Kennedy Center Honors in 2008 and The George and Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement at UCLA on 21 May 2016. Daltrey has been an actor and film producer, with roles in films and television. Roger Harry Daltrey was born on 1 March 1944, in Hammersmith Hospital, East Acton, west London, one of three children of Irene and Harry Daltrey. Daltrey's father fought in World War II at the time, came home a few years later, he was brought up in Acton, the same working class suburban district that produced fellow Who members Pete Townshend, John Entwistle. Daltrey attended Victoria Primary School and Acton County Grammar School along with Townshend and Entwistle, he showed academic promise in the English state school system, ranking at the top of his class on the eleven-plus examination that led to his enrolment at the Acton County Grammar School.
His parents hoped that he would continue on to study at university, but Daltrey turned out to be a self-described "school rebel" and developed a dedicated interest in the emerging rock and roll music scene instead. He made his first guitar from a block of wood, a cherry red Stratocaster replica, joined a skiffle band called the Detours, who were in need of a lead singer, they told him that he had to bring a guitar, within a few weeks he showed up with it. When his father bought him an Epiphone guitar in 1959, he became the lead guitarist for the band. Townshend wrote in his autobiography, "until he was expelled Roger had been a good pupil."Daltrey became a sheet metal worker during the day, while practising, performing nights with the band at weddings and working men's clubs. He invited schoolmate Entwistle to play bass guitar in the band, on the advice of Entwistle, invited Townshend to play guitar. At that time, the band had Doug Sandom on drums and Colin Dawson on lead vocals. After Dawson left the band, Daltrey switched to lead vocals, played harmonica as well, while Townshend became the lead guitarist.
In 1964, drummer Sandom left the band being replaced by Keith Moon. Early on, Daltrey was the band's leader, earning a reputation for using his fists to exercise control when needed, despite his small stature. According to Townshend, Daltrey "ran things the way he wanted. If you argued with him, you got a bunch of fives", he selected the music that they performed, including songs by the Beatles, various Motown artists, James Brown, rock standards. In 1964, the band discovered another band performing as the Detours and discussed changing their name. Townshend suggested "the Hair" and Townshend's roommate Richard Barnes suggested "the Who." The next morning, Daltrey made the decision for the band, saying "It's the Who, innit?". During 1964, band manager Peter Meaden renamed the band to "the High Numbers" as part of a move to establish the band as Mod favourites; the name was a reference to the T-shirts with "numbers". Peter Meaden composed Mod songs for them and they released one single, "I'm the Face/Zoot Suit", on Fontana Records.
The single proved to be commercially unsuccessful. After Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp discovered the High Numbers at the Railway Hotel, the band changed their name back to The Who. With the band's first hit single and record deal in early 1965, Townshend began writing original material and Daltrey's dominance of the band began to decrease; the other members of the Who expelled Daltrey from the band in late 1965 after he beat up their drummer Keith Moon for supplying illegal drugs to Townshend and Entwistle, causing him to re-examine his methods of dealing with people. A week Daltrey was admitted back to the band, but was told he'd be on probation, he promised that there would be no more violent assaults. Daltrey recalled, "I thought. If I didn't stick with the Who, I would be a sheet metal worker for the rest of my life."The band's second single, "Anyway, Anywhere", was the only song on which Daltrey and Townshend collaborated, Daltrey wrote only two other songs for the band during these years.
As Townshend developed into one of rock's most accomplished composers, Daltrey's vocals became the vehicle through which Townshend's visions were expresse
