of Rock and Soul with over

150 music players

ROCK Sex presents the actual history of Rock.

Each week, see and hear everything they never tell you or play for you!

Hear music players that will totally redefine and expand every style of music!

Chapter links:



Each week, ROCK Sex will post essays with music players of every music genre, to rattle brains and shake asses.

Conventional views of Rock history are limited and divisive. The mature view is holistic and inclusive.

Here are the basic new rules.

Little Richard, Alis Lesley, Eddie Cochran

- This history playlist party includes everyone with no divisions, no exclusion, no borders, and no limits.

Booker T and The MGs

- Any Either/Or gets shown the door...
there's only And/Also, compadre.

Prince And The Revolution

- It's nope again to outmoded separatists, absolutists, or frozen traditions.

Tribe 8

- Because culture is not static or owned...
it is fluid and honed.
True creativity is hybrid, and everyone brings something new to it, continuously.

There's an entire world of great unheralded music to explore.

Tune in each week to ROCK Sex to read and hear the true history of Rock'n'Soul!


As each Playlist overview debuts weekly,
the link will appear next to the > arrow.

Each music player will be exhaustive and all-inclusive. Each will be in chronological order for progression and context. Each genre will include tons of unexpected guests who belong in that party.

Surprises, rarities, and revelations galore!
