Now this is my kind of music!!
You have another fan of classic rock coming into this thread Frito.
Here are some favorites of mine from each of these great bands.
I will see your "That Smell" and raise you "Tuesday's Gone" by Lynard Skynard.
Some of my favorite rock songs, and I think they are classics
The Who - Magic Bus, See Me Feel Me
Derek and the Dominoes (Eric Clapton) Layla, Bell Bottom Blues
Jethro Tull - Aqualung
Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers
Eric Burden and the Animals - Oh Lord Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
Black Sabbath - Iron Man
Too many to list, but if I go way back like Elvis it would be
Buddy Holly - I Fought The Law, It's So Easy
Don McLean said it best - The day the music died is the day Buddy Holly died. Can you imagine what he could have done with rock and roll if he had
lived. He was the great one.
Flag and I would star everyone who has contributed if I could. Thanks!!
I'm glad you started this thread. It's great to check in and listen to songs
that will always remain in my heart and soul. And yeah, I suppose pre 80s qualifies as classic. thus......
Pretty unknown band from the 70's and 80's, Renaissance. Mother Russia is a tune about Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Annie Haslem has the voice of a
goddess. They currently are on their 40'th anniversary tour. Ain't all the real guys but what band, after forty years, has all their original
I better stop here, make sure I embedded these properly. No use making a long post with a bunch of black boxes in it. I got them all right except that
last one, which I am trying to fix right now. See what happens.
OK, fixed that. Here's another favorite of mine from Renaissance, recorded just a few days ago. Haven't listened yet but I've heard decent refviews
of the shows they have been doing so I hope it sounds ok.
Now it's time to show the Devil's Horns. Ronnie James Dio, back when he was only forty or so. Hard to believe the guy was born in the thirties and
is still rocking.
I would be remiss if I didn't put up "Long Live Rock N Roll"
How about The Dixie Dregs? Steve Morse is freaking amazing. Hell, the whole band is.
Ok, I think that's enough for now. Just a sampling of the music I love. No Led Zeppelin in my posts as I have no desire to ever hear that band again,
but that's just me. Never really did like them, too folky and Jimmy Page is sloppy.
One last song. Another forgotten band from BITD, a cool one from Uriah Heep.
Hope you guys enjoy! I've been thinking of starting my Progressive Rock thread back up, or just doing another one and getting it right(bunches of
black boxes, it's kind of lame) but this is good enough for now.
I hate the word classic rock, it makes the music sound old.
I mostly only listen to music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. I completely dislike the 90s (worst decade musically) and the past ten years weren't that
great either, though there were some good new bands like Crashdiet (well the first album, then the singer committed suicide and the band wasn't the
same), Crucified Barbara or Benedictum
I like all the old bands. Deep Purple, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Vanilla Fudge, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, Rush, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper and so on.
Great music, too bad i'm so young...i would've loved to see those bands in their prime
