On December 7, 1941, the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was ambushed by a flight of Japanese warplanes. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who held the Oval Office at the time, declared the disaster “a date that will live in infamy.” As the final straw that led to American involvement in World War II and, ultimately, the moment that shaped the course of world history from the middle of the 20th century onward, FDR’s words were hauntingly true.

Today, Pearl Harbor stands as a symbol of not only what was lost that day, but of the permanent changes that were made to the world as a result. It stands as a reminder of the power of the human spirit and the indomitable resilience of the American people. It’s no wonder why so many people come to the area every year to take cycling tours, education tours,

It’s not difficult to get great sounding guitar distortion on your amp. All you really need to do is set your bass around seven, your middle around three, and your treble around six, and there you have it.

“God gave rock and roll to you, put it in the soul of everyone,” Rod Argent once sang. Later, KISS sang the same song as a celebration of the eternal triumphant of rock (and thus the powers of good) over evil, tyrannical overlords of the future as per the 1991 film Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. They weren’t wrong. Some believe rock and roll truly does have the everlasting power to conquer any struggle — especially when it comes to pain, fear or heartbreak.

But where millions of rock fans pack stadiums around the globe, dozens of jazz fans cram into buzzy cafes and scores of souls chant in unison at hip-hop shows to feel the same thing. When it comes to music, everyone chases the same thing: that collective moment of release. Live music in particular has transformative qualities, and so
