You may know from reading The Better Life in the past that OKC has a pretty cool and unique history when it comes to jazz. And you might know that OKC is the home of the fabulous freaks, the Flaming Lips (who even have an alley in Bricktown named after them). But you may not know that OKC’s also “ground zero” of sorts for folks like Color Me Badd (formed in OKC, the four met while attending Northwest Classen High School), Garth Brooks (country megastar from Yukon), Mason Williams (graduated from Northwest Classen as well), Neal Schon (Journey founding member and lead guitarist, born on Tinker Air Force Base), and Hinder (formed in OKC in 2004), to name a few. And, in addition to Flaming Lips Alley, OKC also boasts streets named Wanda Jackson Way, Charlie Christian Boulevard, and Vince Gill Avenue to honor those hometown heroes. We’re certainly proud of our musical heritage!
