ACDC, Metallica, Van Halen…these are the legends of heavy metal who are responsible for top hits that still remain popular twenty years later. Their sound is timeless and continues to be celebrated decades later where parents now get to pass down their gift of music to their children and perhaps even their grandchildren. Metal music is an important part of the world’s history and must be recognized for the important contributions these bands have given to the arts. Where would be without hits like, “Thunder Struck”, “Enter Sandman” and “Hot for Teacher” which rocked audiences from the United states all the way to Europe? They are undeniably a large part of our creative passion we look to stimulate and keep growing because music is the epicenter of where millions of innovative ideas come from.
So where do these artists get their inspiration from? The answer quite honestly could be from anywhere but one facet just may be a passion for flowers! Are you having a hard time believing Brian Johnson stops to smell the roses in between taking the stage in front of millions of people? Well, it’s true! Many of these artistic geniuses have an affection towards beautiful blooms and believe it or not? Some even harvest their own sprawling gardens. The reasons why may be expansive but the basis starts with the fact that flowers have many healing properties as well as inspiring and nourishing. Think about the basic properties of blooms that possess visual, aromatic and tactile gains. These would likely benefit these artists who are constantly searching for the next spark of enlightenment that they can use in their work and in turn, morph into songs that will please fans. We all need a little something to encourage artistic creativity so it makes sense that flowers might be an influential tool.
Since there is a plethora of floral varieties to choose from, we can predict which species might be the better options for musicians like James Hetfield and Eddie Van Halen. First, they need to have an intoxicating smell and a sexy color that will attract attention. If we’re talking arrangements, then the pieces should be architecturally sophisticated or small and compact like the European style.
