I think the first band to use "Synths" (a Moog) was Emerson, Lake and Palmer?

John Mclaughlin and Mahavishnu Orchestra with members (old and older) Jan Hammer/Chick Corea(Keys), Stanley Clarke-bass, Billy Cobham-drums, Jean Luc Ponty-Electric Violin *(with a Wah-wah pedal!!!)

The only completely instrumental concert I left in tears after just sitting there when the lights came up. And this was 1973.......

Nearly everything by The Moody Blues. They took music to a new level. The inventors of " Prog Rock "

Just a few that touch me on a personal level.

I know its the Stones, but I was nine years old and listening to my AM 6 transistor radio and heard...


And, Rock has been what I listen to, ever since...

I never thought of the violin as a modern instrument until I first heard of him

The Day Begines

Cold hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is gray and yellow white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion

Pinprick holes in a colorless sky
Let insipid figures of light pass by
The mighty light of ten thousand suns
Challenges infinity and is soon gone

Nighttime to some, a brief interlude
To others the fear of solitude
Brave Helios, wake up your steeds
Bring the warmth the countryside needs

Perhaps you misunderstood...

The alternate mixes I've been posting were works in progress or possible final directions from Zep. In other words, the original before the original. I'm not talking about an outside producer re-mixing 20 years after the fact--in which case--I agree with you, pass.

Pink Floyd, even the name is mystifying

I much prefer The Mellotron as pioneered by Mike Pinder of The Moody Blues.

I had to chuckle to myself a bit when this lady ran by after so much mention of Zep and Floyd, both by the way I agree with. Yes I am of that age too that can really appreciate them. My favorite Zep song is actually The Rain Song.

I do have to agree with Lorrena Mc too. Nice choice and a pleasant surprise.

Moody Blues I have always loved for one particular thing outside of just how great their music is and that is the fact that every time I have seen them in concert, (4 times) their music is just as you hear it on the album. I mean right down to say a tiny one tap of a cow bell or chime. I was always amazed by that.

I do have to say though, that for the last 25 years or so, the one that has really mystified me as far as the definition of this thread, is Engima. I have always wished there was some way he could actually produce a live show. I imagine the visual would be insane. Like a new age Floyd show. Yep Enigma is the band. Preferably the Return to Innocense album.

Good thread

Hah their on stage PRESENCE was absolute PHYSICAL GRAFFITI.
Their montrous talent seemed to originate in the HOUSES OF THE HOLY
elders. Constantly moving IN THRU THE OUTDOOR they are the CODA
of rock. From the heaviest (LED) depths of hell, to the lightest (ZEPPELIN)
butterflies in Heaven. Thou art rock gods.

Holy Crap how can I miss Tool. Tool definitely mystifies. And Perfect Circle too.

This song really had me mystified for a period in my life (the Henry Rollins poetry reading in the middle of the song is pretty cool):




I remember every time a new band would come out people would say "this band is the new Led Zeppelin". One was the Black Crowes. I think for while they could have been as great but not quite there.

Another band that is Zeppelin like in terms of a good combo of music, lyrics, and singing would be Guns and Roses. Some G-n-R tunes have the staying power as Zeppelin tunes.

Don't forget their swan song, Knights in White Satin. Adding Yes to that
'progressive' list. Many of their songs also took things beyond.
