John Wayne was a true American action hero, although he did die in several of his movies. It wasn't very often (about ten percent of them), but still enough to compose a list. While you can imagine that the Duke was typically shot down in some shootout, this wasn't always the case. In fact, after reading this list, you might believe that he was the blueprint to Sean Bean's storied and unique death scenes! After reading this list, you may ask yourself why John Wayne ever signed onto a contract that dealt with water...the man drowns a lot...
The Doors was one of my all-time favorite bands. They were a musical quartet led by rock icon, Jim Morrison (vocals). The rest of the group comprised of Ray Manzarek on keyboards (who passed away on May 20, 2013), Robby Krieger (Guitar) and John Densmore (Percussion). They released seven studio albums from 1967 through 1971 when lead singer Jim Morrison died unexpectedly. They tried to keep the band going, but had little success with their next two albums - so they disbanded. The Doors were immensely popular, but what were The Doors greatest songs? I believe their greatest work was earlier on when Morrison wasn't absorbed in alcohol and drugs as he was towards the end of his life. You might disagree. What were The Doors greatest songs?
Despite what you might have recently read about the female attitude towards Game of Thrones, women love this show! Why? Primarily, because there are some very tough women on Game of Thrones. The show, which fixates on a medieval setting has it's share of strong-willed women who you wouldn't want to cross. These brave fighters and manipulators are just as strong - if not stronger - than the men that wield the swords and rule the kingdoms. While there are too many to list, here are my favorites of the tough women on Game of Thrones. SPOILER ALERT!!!
Although Draft Dodging in the United States has been around since the Civil War, it is during Vietnam that most of us associate with people dodging the draft. Of these people, there were many famous musicians who dodged the draft. This does not mean that they were deferred because of medical reasons, religious beliefs or that their numbers didn’t come up - these people did something to allow the army to excuse them from service. While people of all walks of life avoided the draft, the following people are all famous musicians who dodged military service.

I've always loved ballad singers. That's the type of song that tells a story. It can be real or fictional, about a person or place. Ballads are a great way of teaching children about history, because they can associate the music to the story. While the story may not be exact, it gives a good representation of what happened. This list is going to focus on the people that made the ballads that were about some historical events. What are your favorite historical ballad singers?
