Never heard of Quiet Riot...are they a Gospel band?
Slade was right up there with the rock Glam Gods of the 70s.
Sweet, TRex, Middle of the Road
....They was all doin it.....
Really, if you didnt live thru the 70s, then you werent really there.... (Just like the 2015s hey Robin Willy)
There was HEEEEEEEAPs of music and genres.
The US was the worst I imagine....you had specific states and areas that had only.....R&B music, C&W music, Soul Music etc etc.
Most of the rest of the Western World had Pop, Rock, basically everything, mixed together......
In the early 70s, We could sing Black Knight, Cumon feel the Noise, Mouldy Ol Dough, Chirpa Chirpa Cheep Cheep, and How can you mend a broken
Heart........all one after another and not think any different about it.
The Airwaves werent just flooded with Heavy Rock 24/7.
We had EVERY kind of music...Electronic, Rock Opera, Pop etc etc etc.
Popcorn the song, went no1!!!
Dudley Moores.....Doooooo Waddda Waddda Dada Dooooo Da Dahhhhhhhh....went no 1!!!.
We even had theme songs as hits in the 70s,
The James Bond Classics, Live and Let Die, Man with the Golden Gun, etc etc.
The Good the Bad and the Ugly theme, Loves theme, Love Story, Deliverance Banjo song went to no1.....Even Disco versions of Star Wars, and 2001 Space
Radio music was Much more diverse than today offerings....at least in my Country (Oz)...AND we had our own music and bands as well.
Slade was right up there with the best..........and worse of the time.
Ah the 70s..........
