Day #4 | Sussex Rocks 2014 | Monsters Of Rock with Richard Perkins

sussex-rocks-2013-logoThe penultimate day of Sussex Rocks Summer School is all about band performance. Students spent the early morning session rehearsing their songs to perform to their peers during a late-morning play back session with peer critique.

Bands assembled themselves into the rehearsal rooms to focus their attention on song structure, intros and endings, and rehearsing with the singers.


Intro Riff: ‘Iron Man’ by Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’ is arguably Tony Iommi’s greatest, and most popular, riff; it could be contested that the intro riff to ‘Paranoid’ is greater, or more famous, but ‘Iron Man’ sure has captured the imagination of young learners since it was first featured in the Marvel Studios movie of the same name in 2008.


After lunch the Sussex Rockers worked studiously in the rehearsal rooms to finish learning their songs for Friday’s performance at Willingdon Community School at 3pm in the Drama Hall.

Expect to hear: ‘R U Mine?’ by Arctic Monkeys, ‘American Idiot’ by Green Day, ‘Grace’ by Jeff Buckley, and ‘Hey Stoopid’ by Alice Cooper among many other great classic rock songs!
