90s rock stars
In the 90s, the term “rock stars” acquired a brand new definition. Ever since the 50s, rock and pop stars were known as absolute style icons. Performers such as Elvis, Mick Jagger or Bon Jovi had the classic “star power” appeal, hitting the stage with the most outlandish clothes and being surrounded by extremely large entourages of people catering to every possible need these rock stars might have, from getting their favorite snacks backstage to making sure that every technical and logistic arrangement was working properly.Some rock stars, including Eddie Van Halen, were notoriously picky, even asking people to serve them M&M snacks of a specific color! Over-the-top rock stars did not disappear in the 90s, but they were joined under the spotlight by another kind of rock stars. Performers such as Kurt Cobain (known as the lead singer of grunge outfit Nirvana) as well as Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam fame) didn’t wear fancy outfits. On the contrary, they wore second hand clothes and played cheap pawnshop instruments, but their music still managed to impress fans all over the world. The 90s was definitely the decade when the term “rock star” acquired a broader dimension. Gift your friends with this mixtape and help them discover which type of rock star they are!
