How could the most popular band of the seventies not be mentioned?

Or the man Clinton called an American treasure.

music is bought and paid for these days. nothing compares now with the exception of a few artists. glam rock, disco, big hair bands, that was the end of music. pop is the same way. playing three chords does'nt make sense. the night the music died (dec. 1980-john lennon). music is not in the of eye the beholder, music is the window to the soul.

Here`s a blast from the past.

1970's when Elton John was all about rock & rock/pop. J. Geils Band put out incredible albums years before their MTv crap hit 'Love Stinks'. Frank Zappa & The Mothers were creating masterpieces. 60's folk & psychedelia gave way to new sounds coast to coast. The original Metal bands of the very late 60's hit their stride. Steppenwolf, Black Sabbath, later on Judas Priest, the Crue, Pantera, Iron Maiden. Dio.

Alice Cooper. God bless that man.

The brothers were putting out awesome sounds; Parliament Funkadelic had a stage show so unreal, Gene Simmons was smart enough to bring that glitz to the white boy audience & get rich with KISS.

The freaky big hair bands where the guys looked like girls - holy crap. A few of those bands were excellent.

David Bowie was just incredible, few artists presented a total entertainment package like he did.

We who loved Rock suffered horribly through The Disco Years when polyester, marching powder and wind-tunnel tested hairdos tested our patience.

The Ramones changed the world with a look and sound that ignited a genre of discontent youth. The Sex Pistols was a manufactured 'boy band' of the day. The Punk scene was so awesome: The Clash. Elvis Costello. Generation X. The Talking Heads.

Good or bad, the 1970's may have brought more diversity to the radio than most decades can claim.

Well said!

Awesome posts, all!

There's an entire genre that's being ignored, however, and I think it's worth your few minutes of time to have a listen; admittedly, a shot and a beer in front of you will enhance the mood... some are the "not exactly what you expected" examples:


So many more in this genre, I'm sure I've already hit the ceiling for video, but for the musicianship alone on these... surely and sorely missing nowadays.

Favorite Cat Stevens is Cats in the Cradle and Wild World.

The 70's to me just screams disco and Saturday Night Fever.
Stayin' Alive.

At least we did that.

I was hoping someone would post this. Love it.

Something else about the '70's music was lp's instead of ep's and downloaded songs. You didn't become slave to popularity as there was such a diverse range of style on the good albums.

That particular album had a great song by Papa John Creach on fiddle that was just great. Same thing with most of the later Commander Cody albums; such a range of style and temperament... listening from start to finish was a journey.

There were even little snippets of songs on the albums that you can't even find on digital. One comes to mind being a little instrumental before 'slat key sequel rag' on Doobie Bros. Takin it to the Streets.

I don't agree with your statement a bit, but this is probably because you're limiting your views to mainstream music only. Although I do like alot of the music from the 70s, but I feel art, both visual and audible, is stronger now than ever before. Ignore mtv or anything you see on cable tv, or the radio, delve deeper into the world-wide-web and start discovering music that most people are unawares of; and only then will you truly begin to realize how music is not dead. No art is. Ever heard of Emancipator, God Is an Astronaut, Kondor, Blazor, Sigur Ros, Cunninlynguist, Deas Veil, Soulchef, Blue Sky Black Death, Sleepmakeswaves, If These Trees could Talk, and so so many more. I listen to music everyday, none of which is mainstream, but it's my light in some moments of darkness, and part of the inspiration that keeps me working on art. Sorry for the mini-rant, I just feel very strong about this subject.

Anyway, blessings

Other than the music, which I love btw, do you miss anything else from the 70's? I find I'm being drawn back to that time period more and more. For instance I collect vintage jewelry from then, pendants, lockets, charm bracelets, from designers as well as everyday. The ads from the vintage Avon ads I found on a page on the web, are so cool looking I want to drop into them and time travel back! lol I'm just teasing, but I think it does reflect a simpler time from my childhood that I didn't have any stress or decisions in and maybe that's why I'm drawn to it. At least I have an idea of why.

Anyway, the music is killer, but that doesn't mean I'm not into today's music. I'm a huge fan of some indie groups and some big ones like Muse, and Florence & the Machine. I think you have to allow yourself to explore without wanting a reward from music to enable yourself to be open to new styles. Please try it! Listen to all new music one night, and pick one band that you liked the best, and go from there. Music I think fosters creativity, and growth, and it also brings us back. It's a multilevel experience! Please try!

And, the 70's rock!
