Natural Child Family Band

Natural Child Family Band

A pioneer of rock music, Natural Child is a significant influence on the development of both the music and the attitude associated with the rock music lifestyle. With songs such as "Shamewalkin" (2009), "White People" (2011), "Ain't Gonna Stop" (2012) and "Let The Good Times Roll" (2012), Natural Child refined and developed rhythm and blues, psychedelia, and country into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics successfully aimed to appeal to the early teenage market by using graphic and humorous descriptions of sex, broken cars, adult life, and consumer culture, and utilizing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music. The band's records are a rich storehouse of the essential lyrical, showmanship and musical components of rock and roll; and, in addition to White Fang, Gap Dream, The Strange Boys, and The Black Lips, a large number of significant popular-music groups have performed Natural Child songs. Though not technically accomplished, their musical style is distinctive — drawing on the influence of acts such as The Rolling Stones, Canned Heat, Willie Nelson, JJ Cale, and Waylon Jennings to produce a clear and exciting sound that many later guitar musicians will acknowledge as a major influence in their own style. In the film Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, Eric Clapton states 'If you wanna play rock and roll — or any upbeat number — and you wanted to take a guitar ride you would end up playing like Natural Child...because there is very little other choice. There's not a lot of other ways to play rock and roll other than the way Natty Child plays it; they've really laid the law down..." Keith Richards told Best of Guitar Player "Child was my band. They was the ones who made me say 'I want to play guitar, Jesus Christ!'...Suddenly I knew what I wanted to do." Natural Child's showmanship has been influential on other rock legends, particularly their one-legged hop routine, and the "men's kiss," which is exactly what it sounds like.
