it probably wasn't heavy metal yet...but they were ahead of their time...and I too do consider this song the root of heavy metal (if it has to be narrowed down to just one song)

That's just people exaggerating the Beatles' legacy... :lol:

(seriously, IMO, The Kinks contributed more to heavy metal...)

EDIT: Not saying the Beatles aren't good or important. Just not as much as their fans would have us believe... I think.

This thread need 12:17 minutes of Foghat's Slow Ride!! :mrgreen: Absolutely love this entire song since from the first time I heard it - especially the guitar jamming in the second half. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxocpsxGz4w
Also loved Dave Peverett (RIP) on vocals.

And of course I thought Eddie van Halen was a complete god since the first time I heard him and the band back in high school. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_lwocmL9dQ
Their debut album from 1978 still stands out to me as their very best. And I only saw them once - but it was in their prime circa 1980.

Absolutely was/am crazy nuts about Boston - I never saw them back in the day either, sadly - because Brad's voice was one of the greatest in my view...would have loved to have seen him live. My husband and I did see Boston in 2008 (with Styx - another top favorite) though, and the new singer can mimic Brad's voice quite well so it was still a phenomenal gig. Especially love the combo of Foreplay and Long Time. Haha - the precision drill team/pom pom squad I was in in high school even did a routine to a Boston song....so great memories, great times. :D

The current membership of Foghat carries the history of the original Foghat very well. :D
I had seen them in this current version a few years ago at an outdoor gig at a local bar.
Roger Earl, Craig MacGregor, Bryan Basset of (Wild Cherry, Molly Hatchet), Charlie Huhn of (Ted Nugent)
Excellent set.

http://youtu.be/bSiTg9QxxY4 Current line up
http://youtu.be/SFiv9M577a4 Bryan Basset
http://youtu.be/BGktdnrQZvU Charlie Huhn on lead vocals (Long ‘70’s song)
Oh, I just have to use the Midnight Special videos because they were such classic performances. :D

Laura you may want to find that long song thread and paste the best of it on this thread.
One of my long ‘70’s tune choices for this thread comes in at 9:41.
http://youtu.be/JTD1QW3SM60

As for Val Halen here is a true story.
My friend got knocked on his ass by Diamond Dave himself as Dave was roller skating around our old Civic Center which is now the Xcel Center. My friend was coming up the steps headed to the box office to get a ticket for that night’s show (Diver Down Tour) and as he turned Dave clipped him and knocked him down. Dave twirled around, to see if he was alright and then just kept skating all the while listening to his walk-man (very pre I-pod). My friend just got up, dusted himself off and said “what an ass-hole”! He got a good enough look at Dave to know who had bowled him over and he still said “Ass-Hole” to Dave. :roll:

As for the Beatles having “Helter Skelter” as a first metal based song is a stretch for me to believe. I can understand how that can be perceived but it doesn’t work for me. I know that a lot of rockers have covered it (Pat Benatar, Motley Crue to name a few) but that song is soooooo tainted in the states due to Charles Manson. I cannot help but associate “Helter Skelter” with Charles Manson and the Manson Family. :cry:
The Beatles legacy is neither in dispute, nor their contributions, but they often do receive an over-rating. :|

^^^ nice post Michael :cheers: - cool to know Foghat can still deliver - I think I'll make a point of seeing them live again when and if they tour next. I'm really hoping there will be some really good "retro" tours this summer as there were last summer - especially at the great outdoor venue here on Northerly Island that has a great view of the skyline. Fleetwood Mac will be here in the spring, but we kinda missed the boat on getting tickets for that. :(

I know I've posted a lot of classic rock links and made many references to my 60s & 70s & 80s youth on these forums since I joined nearly three years ago....and it has occurred to me that some may think I "live in the past" somewhat. There is no doubt I do in terms of very fondly remembering things like seeing Queen, UFO, Bad Company, Journey, The Pretenders, Genesis, Ted Nugent, Jethro Tull, David Bowie, Neil Young, Chicago, Seals & Crofts, Joni Mitchell, The Kinks, Styx, REO, Rush, The Moody Blues, Cheap Trick, Simon & Garfunkel, Elton John, Van Halen, Santana, Jeff Beck, The Ramones, The Grateful Dead, Talking Heads, Robert Plant, Todd Rundgren, Yes, or The Rolling Stones (and many others) all before I turned 24 in 1985....and I think anyone's experiences as a young person during those "formative years" are incredibly influential over the long haul of one's life. Having said that, I like to think I've always been open to new kinds of experiences (whatever they were or may be - whether it was music or whatever) and many of my interests have evolved a great deal over time. For example, as much as I LOVE all my classic rock, and other genres such as classic New Wave, Punk, 80s Pop, Industrial, Grunge, Blues, Alt Rock, Reggae/Ska, Electronica in its many forms and too many others to name....it's the Metal Music I've been listening to and seeing live just in the past 7-8 years that is bar none the most exciting to me. I was looking at the rambling I did on the Black Metal thread yesterday and I wrote this about a year ago.

I had a real epiphany today - that of ALL the musical genres I've ever listened to since I was a little kid - black metal is my favorite. Until today, I could easily say it was my favorite metal genre - but then I realized it's really my favorite, period....it's the strongest, most powerful, most meaningful music I've ever heard.

Ha - that was a pretty bold statement, but it is absolutely true (for me). And besides Black Metal of course, there are other metal genres and favorite bands including Opeth, Tyr, Rammstein, and Pain of Salvation. So, since I feel like I totally *overdosed* on Classic Rock in the past 48 hours, I had to listen to some other stuff - so....I'm gonna DERAIL :lol: the Classic Rock thread with a few (more recent ;) ) bands and songs. Btw, Agalloch, Stone Sour, Kvelertak, and Marduk have been among some of my favorite live acts in recent years...Taake I hope to see someday (perhaps a good excuse to go back to Norway for the third time) :mrgreen:
Agalloch: Not Unlike the Waves http://youtu.be/PuPz7cMD3qs (top ten band for me)
Kvelertak: Blodtørst Live in Vienna http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0p7ASwmWyx0 (one of my favorite gigs of 2011 in a very small Chicago club)
Marduk: Throne of Rats Live at Wacken http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59Z8nZ5-g3I (seeing them next week - *runs around in circles in excitement* :P )
Stone Sour: Made of Scars (at 1:45 - killer!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tmxCRRmNhM (included them because that was my first gig of 2013 and it was outstanding)
Taake: Nordbundet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAIIbnrYC7Q (one of my favorite videos ever)
2009-Wacken-2010-Wacken-2011-70K-Lollapalooza-HoleInTheSky-2012-70K-ColdWaves-2013-Lollapalooza-ColdWaves-2014-ProgNationAtSea-Pitchfork-RiotFest-ColdWaves-2015-RockLegendsCruise-CruiseToTheEdge-2016-ChicagoOpenAir-2017-70K!!

Another thing that comes to mind when I think of Classic Rock is how revolutionary some artists were for their time. I often think that some of the contemporary metal music I love now must seem quite strange or "unusual" to many people...but, if one takes the long view of musical expression over at least the last 50 years, it's really not so much. :beerwink:

I mean...look at Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival around 45 years ago doing Wild Thing with his infamous "guitar sacrifice" at the end!
http://youtu.be/TTBIRYJyDF0

Or The Doors/Jim Morrison doing The End - one of the most intense & creepy songs ever imo....(especially the Oedipal lyrics - "Father (yes, my son?), I want to kill you, Mother - I want to (fuck) you!")
http://youtu.be/tIMCC_ziZ_o

or the crazy cacaphony of sound in the central part of Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love http://youtu.be/hwgLnWHJsN8
(there are better versions of this but are not available on my phone)

^^^ I love all three of these by the way!

Don't think music/musical expression gets (much more) extreme than that (although there are of course some exceptions) :beerwink:

Agalloch is not bad and must be in the same vain as Wintersun. I have to give Agalloch more of a listen.

Since Kingcrow is on tour with Pain of Salvation and I will be going. I have really liked Kingcrow’s debut disc. There are a couple of tunes that are very Pink Floyd-esque.

I read the whole thread and there goes my depression...again. I like, no I love Classic Rock. I think there is no band I can't listen to from this era. But unfortunately I was born to late to see all those bands in their prime time. Many of my friends couldn't understand that I wanted to see (for example) Led Zeppelin back in the 70s. Or thin Lizzy with Phil Lynott...and Gary Moore (one of my all time favorite guitarists).

My first rock experience was an old LP from Journey. I checked my parent's vinyl collection and fell in love with the cover of Journey's live album "Infinity". I didn't know this band I just started the record because of the cover. And since then (I was 10 years old) Steve Perry is one of my all time favorite singers. And he's one more singer I haven't seen live :cry:

Oh and my first rock concert was Bon Jovi :mrgreen:

It just isnt Foghat to me with out Lonesome Dave, cant bring myself to see them without him, R.I.P. Dave.

Saw them twice on the weekend of my 18th birthday. Saw them in Chicago and then some friends called and were seeing them at Alpine Valley that weekend and one had cancelled and they had an extra ticket. I originally said no thanks, I just saw them but relented and saw them again. I even got a 1/2 price beer from one of the vendors who got a kick out if it being my 18th, that was pretty cool. My favorite part of the concert was how the guitarist would hop sideways across the stage while playing the lead for Stone Blue. They were a great live band and Foghat Live is still regularly on my playlist 30 plus years later.

I am absolutely certain that the main reason I love Kvelertak so much is because they are so punkish (although they've been classified as black metal, punk, blackened punk, hard-rock)....music I've loved for 35 years. And OF COURSE :P - I'm a HUGE fan of Black Flag, the Dead Kennedys and the Sex Pistols since I was very young. But those bands are essentially dead now (certainly not in legacy but in terms of performing, new music & so on)....so I'm incredibly thrilled that new bands like Kvelertak exist and take at least some of that formula (if you will) and in my view...actually improve on it and make it fresh all over again. I can't say enough about this band! In short - I adore them. Here's another video of them live - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVvJxLRIMNM They are all awesome - but Erlend as a frontman just blows me away. Like I said, I saw them in a very small club near my house and I was quite overwhelmed to say the least. :oops: :P :lol: Which brings me to your "angst" comment...on the one hand, I understand what you intend to mean by that - but to be honest, that concept/experience never really applied to me (if you look at the the strict definition of the term). What I "get" or "enjoy" from that kind of music is perhaps difficult to put into words.....oh, but wait!!....maybe an old 70s term (although I think it's still used in some circles) will suffice: headrush. :beerwink: :lol: So, the desire I've had (beginning as far back as I can remember) to experience that, has NEVER left and I don't think it ever will.

My second favorite Doors song is indeed Riders on the Storm. :cheers: And....Apocalypse Now? Rules.

:shock: :shock: I hear virtually ZERO similarity between Agalloch & Wintersun (and I like both very much, although in the big scheme of things - I love Agalloch 10-fold), but I realize that everyone hears things differently. ;) ) As I mentioned, once I got into them about 4 years ago, they immediately were something incredibly special to me and moved into my top 10 favorite bands of all time....haha - still a major "headrush" to listen to, but of a completely different "type" and "experience" than a Kvelertak (albeit equally as awesome in my mind). The album The Mantle is the first I heard and remains my favorite...here in its entirety. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dnu_kI3eII Here is the full video version of the song Not Unlike the Waves from another album entitled Ashes Against the Grain http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbCqkpJOtCw

Haven't checked Kingcrow out yet - will do! There have been so many Floyd-ish bands/songs....and for good reason (because Floyd rules!)...even one of my idols, Steven Wilson - went through his total Floyd phase which is awesome by the way. Have you listened to much PoS? I've been out of state this week with my sister, and I told her this afternoon that I almost regret (not really :P ) buying the meet and greet ticket for PoS because I seriously do not think I will be able to utter a coherent sentence to Daniel Gildenlow. :oops: :P

If my turntable worked I could give “Hair of the Dog” a spin or two again. :roll:
Another classic band whose music I never updated to disc or a download. :shock: :lol:

@Laura, I will be listening more to Agalloch.
I like the lengths of their songs and you don’t even realize the song is that long.
My Amazon account has gotten so big plus my CD collection since going on this cruise and reading on the forum. :lol: :lol: :lol:

For my usage of angst is as a colloquialism in my area which is to mean anger, frustration, and or other emotions reflected in a mood, a feeling. A non-directional emotion. Not necessarily a bad thing or term. Angst and frustration around here kind of mean the same thing ( see colloquialisms, jargon). Yes, it can stem from fear and from anxiety but more often it comes from not being able to control what you have no control over. Like a Mother telling her daughter that she cannot do something and the offspring experiences a feeling of angst. Not fear. not anger. frustation yes, and the offspring may rebel against the parent because they are not getting their way. :shock: :? :P :cool: All is good.
Sorry for the long Explanation.

Headrush! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

No matter what I will give Agalloch more listening time. :cool:

Yeah, I wonder if the uploader just dubbed the original track over some old video with poor sound quality. I say this just cuz there's no announcer voice, no crowd noise or applause or anything else and it's just so obviously the studio track. I know there were many shows in the old days where they'd have bands 'perform' while the studio track played but the versions usually aired with at least a bit of crowd/studio ambiance mixed in :?
So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

^^^ I've noticed on other old videos the sound & mouth/playing not quite matching up - I think it's some kind of technical issue with the video/sound rather than lip-syncing.

Now listening to this on Spotify (yes, I LOVE Spotify! :P )...

In my opinion - American southern rock at its very best!!
Live version of Simple Man (date unknown) http://youtu.be/sHQ_aTjXObs

Lynyrd Skynyrd is playing the Congress Theater in Chicago a week from Friday and the husband & I are considering going. Several years before we met, we were both fairly big fans of this band. I actually only owned one lp by them (Street Survivors), but of course was familiar with & loved all their big hits from the 70s including Sweet Home Alabama & Free Bird. As many here probably know, a tragic plane crash killed three of the key members in 1977 at the peak of their success :cry: Needless to say, neither my husband nor I ever saw them (because both of us were just starting to go to concerts on our own as teenagers around 1976-77. So, they perform now with just one original member, plus Johnny Van Zant (younger brother of original lead vocalist Ronnie who died at age 29), and a bunch of other new band members.

Anyway - I think it would be fun to go, if for nothing else but for nostalgia's sake. We could actually yell Freebird!! and they'd play it!!

really nice, long write-up about the band here: http://venue.congresschicago.com/event/ ... d-chicago/

They are still fun to see live. Saw them with Ted NUgent a few years back. Never got to see them with Ronnie unfortunately.

I remember growing up playing my Skynyrd 8 track in the car & Freebird would skip tracks right in the middle of the guitar jam, it was too long to fit on one track. To this day whenever I hear Freebird I am still psychologically waiting for that skip/track change inthe middle of the song.

R.I.P. to Alvin Lee of Ten Years After who passed away today.

One of the all time greatest guitarists and Id Love To Change The World is an all time classic.

R.I.P. Alvin! (also R.I.P. to pro wrestling manager Paul Bearer who died yesterday)

Wow - first of all - that's really sad about Alvin Lee. :( I mean - he wasn't young (68) per se, but he wasn't that old either. What an amazing career. I was reading up on him and apparently his Woodstock performance in particular was legendary. Need to youtube that. Actually - I've been thinking of looking into what kind of Woodstock dvds are available and buying one - like a "best of" if such a thing exists.

And that song I'd Love to Change the World from 1971 is another all time favorite of mine. My sister had the album A Space in Time that it was on, and I'd play it over and over as a young kid/teen. The guitar jam in that is so awesome. Interesting write-up here: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%27d_Lo ... #section_1 - the lyrics definitely are telling of the era - especially the reference to the Vietnam War - gosh, I still vividly remember being a young kid and watching all the coverage on the nightly news of the war and how absolutely horrible & pointless it all seemed. For anyone who doesn't know this song, it's definitely worth checking out!
Ten Years After (with Alvin Lee - rip): I'd Love to Change the World http://youtu.be/RBAwv49slC8

Re Skynyrd....we were about to say - meh - because it is $40 plus (with fees) per ticket....but - lo and behold, I got a groupon email offering TWO tickets for $40 flat - so SOLD. Man, I've gotten so many great half price (or better) deals via Goldstar or Groupon. Anyway - excited to see Skynyrd - I'm sure it will be a good time - Freebird!!! :beerbang: :smoking:

Here's an interesting & fun trivia fact for ya - Lynyrd Skynyrd was the opening act for The Who for their entire Quadrophenia tour in 1973! It seems like such in odd (yet cool) combo. The Chicago gig was at the Chicago International Ampitheater (that I know both of us have talked about and saw shows there back in the day) the end of November 1973. And husband & I just saw The Who doing Quadrophenia last November 2012. Haha - that is a lotta years for both bands. :shock: :cool:

Lynyrd Skynyrd is still one of many classic rock bands that I have not seen live. :shock:

I was always more of a Molly Hatchet listener and I have always liked their remake of “Dreams I’ll Never See” over the original by the Allman Brother’s Band. :D
http://youtu.be/B53j-lKZdhE

I also liked the Rossington-Collins Band which rose from the ashes of Lynyrd Skynyrd but ended up having a very short rock life. :D
http://youtu.be/qoy-UTzCmY4

Lynyrd Skynyd has had a great deal of tragedy during the course of its life as a band. :cry:

Have a great time at the show and yell a couple “Free Birds” for me. :party:
Oh, make sure to hold your Bic high in the air and in full flame during “Free Bird”. Flashback concert memory. :cool: :D :D
http://youtu.be/CkTQUtx818w Long version.

One of my favorite Free Bird versions live in Chicago at Comiskey Park. Classic!

Well, I'd definitely recommend seeing Lynyrd Skynyd live - like I mentioned on the gig thread - they were awesome last night. In fact, I'd see 'em again next time they come round in a heartbeat. That 1975 BBC link for Freebird is my fave video version I've found. I was also a big Molly Hatchet fan (and Dreams You'll Never See is a great song) - I just saw them once in 78 with Santana, Thin Lizzy, Journey, & Eddie "Two Tickets to Paradise" Money!

Just found out last week that both Heart & Chicago are playing Ravinia this summer and those 2 are high on our list. I saw Chicago a few times in the 70s, but never Heart - so that would be cool. The song Color My World was a "staple" slow dance song at jr high & high school dances as I recall. :P http://youtu.be/ZN-AyNsDtN0

I already mentioned on the 2013 Tours thread plans to see Depeche Mode in August, but I guess they're not technically "classic rock" (ha - even though they've been around for 30+ years) - but "classic New Wave". :cool:

Rush is coming back for like the millionth time this year :P (sheesh - they're like Energizer bunnies when it comes to touring!! :shock: :lol: ) but I've seen Rush a bunch of times, plus their tix are usually quite $$$, so taking a pass on them this year.

Laura, Never seen Heart. :shock: :shock: :P :P

I have seen Heart many times and Chicago a few times. :D

Heart was the opener for Def Leppard at our state fair a couple of seasons ago and Def Leppard said that they never realized the depth and amount of hit songs Heart has achieved. They always knew of Heart and their legacy but never realized it until they watched them perform.

Chicago’s “Colour My World” is my favorite song of theirs among their many other hits.
http://youtu.be/EMHemXOO-PU
Not the best quality but one has to consider the era that this one was filmed and recorded.
Also was so glad that Peter Cetera played this tune with Chicago during their Chicago 17 tour. Long out of print and glad somebody posted it on youtube.
http://youtu.be/RaF84F_KwCk :D

My friend has the best memory of Chicago from our youth when she got to see Chicago, in Chicago, at Chicago Fest. I don’t know what year that was other than it is a long time ago. :cool:

Too many favorite hits of Heart to show and I don’t want to spoil your fun but I will include these covers that they perform.
http://youtu.be/JK_DOJa99oo
http://youtu.be/xzo8BQZp9tQ
http://youtu.be/KbPKizrDnOY
http://youtu.be/GWhf98pFeUs (posted on best remakes)
They should play at least two of those covers during their set.
Also Howard Leese is no longer with Heart. :cry: He is part of Paul Rogers touring band.
http://youtu.be/VWtX-KUZwV4

I also have been in ticket price shock that some of the classic rock acts are charging. Chicago is $$$$. I don’t need to see them again at those prices.

Depeche Mode is booked for our state fair this year and I will be going to that show. :D

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are also on tour and booked for Target Center in June and I be at that show as well. :D

Chicago's 25 or 6 to 4 is one of the greatest jams ever.

A lot of people nowadays think of Chicago as elevator music as their sound softened later in their career after some of their key members left. But their early stuff was fantastic. Terry Kath is one of the greatest guiarists ever and is highly under appreciated. His death was a terrible tragedy, He was the biggest talent in that band which had a plethora of top notch musicians. His guitar work / solo in 25 or 6 to 4 was phenomenal and is one of my all time favorite solos. IMO Jimi Hendrix was being modest here but he said that Terry Kath was the most talented guitarist in rock & that Kath was even better than him. (Kath was great but Hendrix is like the Babe Ruth of guitarists, he is in a league of his own).

I never knew what the Hell 25 or 6 to 4 was about and decided to look it up and it is like, Duh! I should have figured it out. Its about staying up late writing a song and deciding whether to keep going or go to bed.
"Should I try to write some more? 25 or 6 to 4, ore, ore........)

25 or 6 to 4 was the time of the morning, 3:35am or 3:34am.

You know, after reading this post last week the first song that came on the radio as I drove to work was 24 6 to 4. LOL. :D
I then dug out my Chicago disc gave it a listen or two, plus after work I had to do a little YouTube watching of Chicago. LOL :cool:
One of my favourite covers that Chicago performed and in good quality.
http://youtu.be/UVLUFl6WO6E

The original version.
http://youtu.be/AzN0mMx-sJg

Since I touched on Steve Winwood here is a long ‘70s song for Laura. All 13:42 minutes. LOL :P :D :D
http://youtu.be/R8M8R835Ck4

Another Winwood long tune (at 16:09 for Laura, LOL :P :D ) but this time it is with Eric Clapton covering a Jimi Hendrix tune and that tour was an excellent pairing. :cool:
Well worth seeing just like the pairing of Bob Seger and Kid Rock for only two shows. :cool:
The first here in St. Paul, MN. And the other the next night in Fargo, ND.

^^^ great links, Michael - really love Traffic and especially Low Spark of High Heeled Boys; also the song Light Up or Leave Me Alone from that album.

John (BehnWilson) - I never knew the meaning of that Chicago song title 25 or 6 to 4 - ha! Pretty cool and love the song. I know what you mean that many people today probably consider a lot of Chicago songs "elevator music" - especially stuff like If You Leave Me Now or Color My World - but I think they're all great songs nonetheless. They were some great songwriters in their prime.

Let another summer of retro 70s flashback (classic rock) begin! Tickets for the Ravinia Festival http://www.ravinia.org/ go on sale on April 25 - will buy tix for Heart (with opener Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience :P ) on July 29, Steely Dan on August 1 and Cheap Trick (doing Live at Budokan!) on Aug 31. We may do others, but just lawn and will wait to buy those tickets. Also found out that both Styx and Lynyrd Skynyrd are playing the Naperville Rib Fest :lol: - so think we'll go to those two again as well.

I did rediscover the brilliance of Thin Lizzy's Jailbreak with their re-release. And Rob Zombie helped me rediscover how cool a song I'd heard forever and was sick of was (Freebird, at the end of Devil's Rejects... just a great build).

I just remembered, I once went to a fitness center, where they had these workout classes. Naturally, they had music, which was either classic rock remixes or pop remixes. No need to guess which on I preferred. It turned out there was someone in the group who hated hearing the classic rock. Is that even possible? I can understand not being into it, but it is a very inoffensive genre in my opinion, so I can't comprehend someone considering it a burden to listen to it.

Dan - of all those bands you mentioned - I'm only familiar with The Devil's Blood & Royal Thunder - both of which I've seen and like very much - but I think that any band that draws on some element of the classic rock era is def fair game for this thread. I think that Ghost & Blood Ceremony could be included in that group as well....and there are probably many more I'm not thinking of at the moment and/or just don't know the music of.

Don't know the movie The Devil's Rejects but cool they include Freebird (!). As I talked about earlier on this thread - seeing Lynyrd Skynyd a few months ago was really great....and just found out they're playing the Naperville (burb where my sis lives) Rib Fest this July, so likely we'll see them again. And speaking of southern rock, bought tix on Sat morning when they went on sale for the Allman Brothers (playing the gorgeous Chicago Theater in late August) - another awesome 70s dinosaur who apparently is still alive & kicking. At least among my peer group at that time - Skynyrd & the Allman Brothers were the true kings of southern rock. A huge bonus is that 33 year old (former wunderkind guitar prodigy) Derek Trucks is now a member of the band. Have never seen him and my sister said he was awesome on one of those Crossroads guitar extravaganza gigs a while back (with Clapton and others). Never saw the Allman Brothers, so opted for some $$$ tix since this may be the only time we see them. (husband is also a big fan since 70s high school days).

Here is Derek Trucks performing a guitar solo (live with the Allman Bros): http://youtu.be/Vuadh1o0yC8
-and-
Great old video (1970 live at The Fillmore!) of Allman Bros doing Whipping Post. As I wrote when I posted this on fb the other day - JAM!! http://youtu.be/C6up076lSH8

And one last thing - think we both had awesome parents then. :bangers:

^^^ correction to what I said about the bands I know from your list, Dan - need to add Devil - I'm assuming you mean Devil from Norway and yes they are very good and I've seen them as well. One of the guys from the band used to post here on occasion - I think his screen name is cargonaut or something like that.

Last night was a pure sinful pleasure from the past on seeing Cherrie Currie of “The Runaways” fame. :shock:

Really glad to see that she has come out of retirement and Cherrie even said after her third song, “I just realized. This is my first show ever outside of California since my Runaway days”. She really enjoyed herself and us fans. She has a new record coming out and played a lot of those songs during her set. It was cool that the ex-members of Guns and Roses helped her out on recording her new record plus it was really cool to have her son playing rhythm guitar in the band on Mother’s Day (She came on at Midnight).

It was also nice to see that she can still do her moves. :roll:
http://youtu.be/4hAF6xyP3yg
http://youtu.be/YU9Wo9DBfJc

She thanked Nick Gilder for writing a new tune for her and paid homage to David Bowie.
A little Nick Gilder. LOL
http://youtu.be/El6iQ2_dvlc

and a little Bowie.

New Bowie stuff and he is still creating controversy. :cool:

Yep. :bangers:

Some others I've been enjoying that I left out are Howl, Kadavar, Hexvessel, and more I can't think of.

I tend to not gravitate towards the southern rock aspect of the classic rock spectrum. Maybe as a result, for all the praise they're getting, I just don't care for Rival Sons or Gypsyhawk. They sound very generic to me.

Re: Classic Rock!!

Classic Rock has had a massive influence on me to getting into the Metal I love today. Rush, April Wine, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Aerosmith, Kiss, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Scorpions, Cream, Clapton solo material, Van Halen, The Guess Who, BTO, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Foreigner, CCR, The Police, Fleetwood Mac, The Moody Blues, ELO, Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, David Bowie, The Eagles, Guns N' Roses (before Slash left and they completely went too shit courtesy of Axl Rose's gigantic ego), Genesis, Yes, Peter Frampton, Ted Nugent, Fleetwood Mac, just to name the bands/musicians I grew up listening too at the age of 13 courtesy of hearing it on the radio in my Dad's truck, I'm 23 right now and still admire my Dad a great deal for exposing it too me in that format.

Of the bands I've listed on here that I like I have managed to have seen a few but that's better then none.

I've seen Rush 4 times because they play two shows each time they come too Toronto and I was lucky and very lucky to have seen my fav classic rock band on my 23rd birthday last year (which is October 14th).

I've seen The Moody Blues and they were incredible and I'm surprisingly fortunate to share a birthday with Justin Hayward.

I've seen Kiss live twice and both times they were incredible with their pyro and other stage antics.

I've seen Alice Cooper twice and he still puts on a fantastic live show with his beheadings and scaring off photographers who get too close to him.

Saw Roger Waters on The Wall tour 3 years ago it was mindblowing.

I've seen Scorpions twice and they were great; Klaus Meine still has a great voice.

Saw Van Halen last March on St. Patties Day and I enjoyed them a great deal and Diamond Dave's dance moves along with his hilarious in between song banters made the show more awesome, his notable banter I remember was of him showing a video montage of his dog named Mikey herding a group of sheep and Dave go's "Sheep are like cheerleaders, you don't want to get too close to them. Cattle, they're more aggressive, they're like uhh... uhh Canadian Hockey Fans!" The crowd laughed at that and even though I like hockey and I'm Canadian, I was howling with laughter, and I laughed at his schtick of "I forgot the fuckin' words" during one of his songs, great live entertainer.

Saw Aerosmith last year as well and man can Steven Tyler still wail away even though his past drug abuse has made him look like he's over 80 years old.

Saw Deep Purple last year and they blew me away and I remember Ian Gillan was in a boot cast but for a guy who at the time was 66 years old, he still could execute his high pitched screams.

Saw ZZ Top and they were fantastic plus Billy Gibbons' in between song banters were hilarious, since they were playing a Casino on an old Native Reserve, I remember he said "We're on an Indian reserve tonight, well the Indians aren't Canadian. When your on an Indian reserve you can do anything... well almost anything. There`s two rules, 1. No drinking during gospel music and 2. No Gospel music". He also said another hilarious notable banter in reference to Dusty Hill's hat and his Blues Look "I got to get me one of those hats, but where can I find one, where`s my blues technicians?" Then two burlesque women then came out with a fedorah for Billy and then Billy go's "Dang!" in which the crowd erupted with laughter. Finally for the last banter "We've been doing this for four decades, same 3 guys, same 3 chords", in which the crowd laughed yet again.

This sums up the bands I like, and the ones I have seen live with the frontmen's hilarious banters they busted out live. Last but not least, I dig the thread you made Laura, it's awesome :cheers:

I don't think Guns N Roses qualifies as "Classic Rock". :twisted:

I also seem to lump psychedlic into this, probably because of Pink Floyd, but I originally hesitated to include Intronaut, Ufommamut, and the like. I also didn't include the already well known stuff like Orange Goblin, The Sword, Down, Clutch, etc.
Never take anything I say seriously.

Am I Evil? I am Dan. Yes, I am! :twisted:
