Alright folks. Seeing as Metallica has their own damn thread, for whatever reason, I think it's time that we devote a thread to the pioneers of rock n' roll and to those who perfected it. Discuss albums, guitar solos, news, and anything else you can think of in this here thread. Enjoy. :)
 
I can't participate because I'd have to write a book.
But I wonder to which time-window you're assigning the term "Classic Rock".
Some would include the 50's and the 80's, some wouldn't and would say that it refers more to the more electrified late 60's and none of the 80's at all.

Honestly, in your mind, do you think the 80's really count? This is about rock n' roll not about some sweaty little prissies dancing around in cheep tight spandex.
 
well, that's why it's kind of dumb how we break things into decades.

AC/DC's Back in Black was 1980. So was a ton of other stuff that's classic and Rock. *shrug*
 
I've always considered classic rock the stuff from the 50's and 60's.

I understand what you're saying and how this does cause a problem. Let's just put it this way, anything that you believe is classic rock can be discussed in this thread.

Well if you go to a "Classic Rock" radio station it's almost all from the 70's, like Heart, Led Zeppelin, Lynrd Skynrd, Styx, Bob Seger, etc.

Really? My station features that stuff along with The Beatles, The Stones, The Who, Cream, The Doors, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, etc. Classic rock is whatever you say it is.

I stated what I considered to be classic....not what radio stations consider it to be.

On a side note....the last concert I went to was a Bob Seger one back in the 80's.
 
Classic Rock is an essential in my life. Only God & my loved ones rank ahead of it. Ever since I was young, I've loved classic rock with a passion. My dad introduced me to The Beatles when I was about five or six, and for awhile, they were my favorite band.

As the years went on, I began to discover great artists / bands like Heart, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Guns 'N' Roses, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, Simon & Garfunkel (not sure if they qualify as classic rock, but they're one of my all time favorites), Black Sabbath, The Cars, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Elton John, David Bowie, The Police, Meat Loaf, Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys, Eric Clapton, The Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Van Halen The Clash, The Ramones, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Idol, Journey, Queen, The Who and the best band of all time, Led Zeppelin. I've probably left off a lot of bands, mostly because I have a fairly vast collection.

As for the 1980s, the 1980s' brought us Guns 'N' Roses and Def Leppard, not to mention (well, it was already mentioned) AC / DC's Back In Black. GNR and DL released the two best albums of the decade, Appetite For Destruction and Pyromania (Hysteria also gets an honorable mention).

This is just my two cents.

Concerts were getting to cost too much....I don't remember the exact price, but before Segar I went to a Rod Stewart one....and it was just getting too high for all the hassall I was going through (too much smoke of all kinds, everyone wants to stand through the whole thing - I like to listen to music in my comfy EZchair)....so I spend my money on other things.
 
My classic rock experiences started when about 22 years ago, when I discovered my dad's vinyl and 8 track collection.

Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, Black Sabbath, ELO, Deep Purple, The Who, Pink Floyd, Chicago Transit Authority, Seals and Croft, Steve Miller, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult, Styx, Blue Cheer, Mountain and several more.

Listening to all that as a 6 year old was incredible

All the classic rock stations on terrestrial radio in my town play the same overplayed songs by virtually the same bands. It's sickening.

They don't play enough Dylan anymore.
 
And when they do play Dylan it's the same song for the 5,368,472,100,304,694th time
