The Beatles influence in Latin America and the Rolling Stones disaster at Altamont by Martin M. Rocha

The Beatles made an impact in the world of music and their influence was felt throughout the world. In Spanish speaking countries, there is no doubt that their music continues to give people happiness. Latin Americans don’t need to be fluent in English to enjoy their music, but believe or not many people learn; and are motivated by the simplicity and the beauty of the music. The Beatles can do no wrong. Even after 41 years since their break up they still continue to be deliver such a strong message. Measuring at 24 by 36 this drawing is a tribute to my favorite era. The year of Abbey Road.

Another phenomenal band, The Rolling Stones represented the hard driven blues rock n roll of the 60’s and 70’s. Another tribute drawing within the same measurements as The Beatles above; I was inspired by their Altamont tragedy. Dubbed as “Woodstock West” many rock n roll fans view the Altamont disaster as the death of the sixties. Tragedy struck the festival when during The Rolling Stones set a fan was killed in the audience. What makes this interesting is the fact that some fans think it occurred while they were playing “Sympathy for the Devil”. Bizarre, isn’t it? In fact they were playing “Under my thumb”. The rest is history.
