Classic rock fans

Postby scorpiontx91 » Mon Sep 01, 2014 5:12 pm

Not sure if we have any fellow classic rock fans. I like a wide rand of bands in the classic rock period. For simpiicity we will call classic rock from Elvis's first record(1954) to the end of disco/beginning of new wave(1980). So from 1954-1980 bands.

Myself I like the following bands(no particular order)
Beatles
The Stones
Eagles
Moody Blues

Traffic
Fleetwood Mac(mostly the Peter Green/Bob Welch period stuff mostly, a bit of the Rumours lineup stuff)
Pink Floyd
Genesis(all the albums that Peter Gabriel were on and maybe the rest of the 70s albums)
The Who
Led Zeppelin
Janis Joplin
Jimi Hendrix
Love
Moby Grape
Yardbirds
The Kinks
The Zombies
Small Faces/Faces
Humble Pie
Rush(70s mostly)
Yes
Deep Purple
Bowie(all his 70s stuff)
Roxy Music
Creedence
Cream
Eric Clapton's solo stuff

There is a rather lengthy list of classic rock bands and music under the heading "But We Aren't a Glum Lot", subject line UK/USA with the first post being 1/1/13 and the last 1/9/13 if you care to pull it up. There's lots of good stuff there; check it out scorpion. Looks like you listed every rock band that has ever existed. :mrgreen:

I didn't see the Doors, ZZ-Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band or Crosby, Stills & Nash.

I saw him in 1981 at the Meadowlands in NJ. It was awesome but expensive!

Not too shabby for an old guy, huh? :wink:

When I went to see Joe Cocker at the Greek, the audience was mixed, teens to seniors, but EVERBODY was up out their seats, dancing in the aisles and rocking out, especially when he sang "Feeling Alright". Loved it!!!

I saw Joe Cocker about 20 years ago at the British Army of the Rhine's Summer Show in Rhiendahlen. That was the night I had my front teeth kicked out. :lol: I remember Joe's gravel-tones though; magical.
