In the Spotlight: The Meters

By November 14, 2012

Follow me on:

The inventors of New Orleans' brand of funk helped perfect the genre, while adding a distinctly local flavor heard on some of the city's greatest '60's soul tunes. In the '70s, however The Meters really took off, both as sessionmen and artists all their own, until disco and the business conspired to kill them off. Now they're back... and finally nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Read all about the music and career of the Meters here.
