Let There Be Horns !

In the realm of all things rockin' there is little point in arguing that the guitar is king. This is both obvious and etched in stone. Period.  What is also just as obvious is that the story doesn't end there...where would we be without drums, bass and yes, keyboards. There is yet another group of instruments that has played a vital part in shaping the genre over the years, and that of course is brass. Trumpets, trombones, the almighty saxophone and others have created some of the most memorable riffs and melodies ever to cause a listener to hum along to a favorite tune. To follow is a short list of five of my favorite horn-driven rockers in no particular order. Feel free to share your own fave horn songs...Here are some of mine.

"Sussudio" by Phil Collins

"Questions 67 and 68" by Chicago

"You Can't Get What you Want(Till You Know What You Want)" by Joe Jackson

"What Is Hip" by Tower Of Power

"Open Sesame" by Kool And The Gang"
