maybe some 80s too but only some.

i was originally just going to make a thread for the who, but i thought i might as well make it general since i wouldn't be able to stop talking about the rest of the bands i love.

so just.. who're your favourite classic rock bands or songs? or any stories about meeting those musicians? all that jazz. my favourite band of all time is the who and eventually im going to be as good a bassist as john entwistle and as good a drummer as keith moon.


also if anyone says "all new music nowadays is terrible!" go listen to foals or something my friend instead of the stuff you hear on the radio, which only scratches the surface

I don't listen to a whole lot of classic rock (I primarily listen to more recent stuff), but there are plenty of classic acts that I like a lot. I just have a problem with classic rock radio as a radio format because it seems like they have a list of like 30-40 bands that they play regularly, and then it's only like their biggest hits. More Than a Feeling is a great song, but I can only listen to it a few hundred times before I change the channel every time it comes on. Play some more obscure artists or deeper cuts.

My favorite 60s/70s band has to be Jethro Tull. Thick As a Brick is a masterpiece. I've also been listening to a lot of Blue Cheer lately. They're kind of the frontrunners of heavy metal. The Cure is one of my favorite bands of all time. They are more of an 80s group, but their 70s albums are good as well. Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Blue Oyster Cult, Queen (to an extent--I prefer to listen to their more obscure songs I haven't heard a million times like Dragon Attack or Sheer Heart Attack), and classic Chicago (before going pop. Like, Chicago Transit Authority era--I'm a Man has like the best drum solo of all time) are some of my favorites as well.

That's all I can think of right now. It's a lot harder to discover good classic rock bands I've never heard of before than to discover new modern rock bands.

i get that so hard... there isnt many primarily classic-rock stations where i live, but when they have a golden oldies hour or something its always the same old stuff.. as much as i love some of those songs, as you said, listening to more than a feeling so many times can get grating

i need to give jethro tull a listen! i've heard of them but haven't listened to them yet.. it takes me ages to listen to anything, i've had yes in my to-listen playlist for months now and never got around to them

i'll give some of the other artists you've listed a listen too, although naturally im already a big fan of led zeppelin, fleetwood mac and queen (i mean i do love blue oyster cult but have yet to delve past don't fear the reaper )

i get that as well, it's a lot more difficult to find lesser-known bands from previous decades than now. i suppose you just gotta be there. luckily my dad has been so he can show me all the good stuff
