The Rolling Stones
By Kristen Lason
How did this musical artist or group change Rock and Roll/Rhythm and Blues forever?
Mick Jagger's voice was often described as unexceptional but due to the publics high liking to it, he opened the way for those who didn't quite have the perfect voice. It caused a major change in Rock and Roll opening the pathway for those like Mick Jagger. Many singers today are still influenced by Mick Jagger and his different style of singing. They also affected Rock and Roll because they wrote and performed songs based on subjects that were technically considered taboo such as drugs, sex, and violence. However this was done more to inform the public that these weren't always bad things or to get rid of the negative feelings associated with the topics. This caused for bands in the future to be able to discuss any topics they wished without fear of being shut down.
