Rock and Roll is Dead
Singer/Songwriter, Tim Bergstrom, walks you through “Rock and Roll is Dead,” by Lenny Kravitz. This song is the first of two singles off of his Grammy nominated album, Circus, the second single being, “Can’t Get You Off of My Mind.” This song was released in October of 1995 and it charted on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and the U.K. Singles charts. Circus also went to number 10 on the Billboard chart.

“Rock and Roll is Dead” was later re-released in 2000 on his Kravitz’s Greatest Hits album.  

Tim plays a Gibson USA Midtown Custom in the lesson.

    Tim Bergstrom is a singer/songwriter out of Nashville, TN who has a sound that has been 15 years in the making. An Indiana native, Tim spent countless hours sitting in front his bedroom stereo being influenced from everything from CCM to jazz to rock 'n roll. Among these influences, Ben Harper, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Bob Marley had large impressions early on. But as Tim has progressed in his songwriting and his playing he has settled into a sound that is in the same vane as Ryan Adams, The Wallflowers, Augustana, and Tom Petty. His most recent release Found is a return to his roots in CCM while applying his acquired "straight ahead" sound. In recent years Tim has worked with up and comers such as The Daylights, Andy Davis, Mariah McManus, The CO, and more.
