In an effort to beef up my classic rock collection I want to know about some killer Classic Rock. I am an avid fan of the Doors, Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, The Beatles, The Eagles, and many more. But since i was born in the 80's I didnt have the oppurtunity to personally explore the music in its era. What did I miss?

Post your Classic Rock favorites and/or any reccomendations you have for me.

Frank Zappa
You need to hear several albums before you make up your mind, i.e. "Overnight Sensation" and "Apostrophe"

Captain Beefheart
Check out the songs "Electricity" and "Party Of Special Things To Do"

Deep Purple
Check out the albums "In Rock" and "Fireball"

Check out the albums "Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow" and "Rising"

Uriah Heep
Check out the songs "Gypsy" and "Tears in my eyes"

Check out the albums "Fragile" and "Relayer"

Thin Lizzy
Check out the song "Black Rose"

Kiss (Yes, I know...
Check out the songs "Deuce", "Black Diamond", "Watching You", "100,000 Years", "She" and "Cold Gin"

Mahavishnu Orchestra
Maybe not pure "classical rock", but some...

I'll probably remember many more bands after submitting this post...

Check out the songs "Fly On A Windshield", "In The Cage", "Carpet Crawlers", ...actually you should listen to the whole album "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" from 1974

Check out the songs "Before And After", "In The End", "A Passage To Bangkok", "Something For Nothing" and "La Villa Strangiato". I would like to mention many other songs by Rush, but then we are in the 80s. Everytime I listen to the song "In The Mood" from their first album, I believe he sings "I feel I've got to moo" ...and there is even a cowbell right there

Hawkwind and Black Sabbath plus everything that Hellmutt has suggested.

For something a little different Blue Cheer and Ironbutterfly. Enjoy.

King Crimson

Check out the track "Red" from the album by the same name if you're going to check out only one track. It's an instrumental from 1974.

One of my absolute favorite tracks by King Crimson is "Indiscipline" from the album "Discipline", but it's from 1981...

Emerson, Lake And Palmer

Check out the songs "Living Sin" from the album Trilogy (1972) and "Lucky Man" from the album Emerson, Lake and Palmer (1970)

Excerpt from "Lucky Man"

He went to fight wars for his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory the people would sing

Oooh, what a lucky man he was
Oooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him, his blood ran as he cried
No money could save him, so he laid down and he died

Oooh, what a lucky man he was
Oooh, what a lucky man he was

And then there's also the band Gong and Steve Hillage. For Steve Hillage, you might i.e. listen to the track "The Glorious Om Riff" from the album "Green". There are many other cool tracks but my brain is asleep at the moment...

Well pretty much everything I'd list has already been mentioned, except for one band.

Max Webster (Also look up Kim Mitchell, he was the lead singer/guitarist but moved out on his own later on) They made some beautiful music, one of my fav bands.
