    Led Zeppelin (Official Thread)

    The one I noted focuses almost 100% on the music both onstage and in the studio. No drugs, groupies, or other salacious crap.

    Led Zeppelin (Official Thread)

    I've read more Zep books than I can remember. The main contributor to Hammer of the Gods was Zep's ex-tour manager Richard Cole. He'd been fired in 1977 and had an axe to grind. Hands down the most factual and detailed Zep book...

    Me, Myself, and I: Clips of my stuff.

    Here's some stuff I've recorded over the past dozen years or so. All instrumental and all guitar driven. Looking forward to comments and whether or not you dig it. Stipulate to Modulate https://memyselfi5.bandcamp.com/track/stiptulate-to-modulate (might have to rewind to the beginning of this.)

    Snowy White (Official Thread)

    Very tasty guitarist with tones to die for. He and Doyle Bramhall II make a great tandem on the Roger Waters "In the Flesh" concert DVD. Man I would so love to take a spin on his 1957 Goldtop.

    Music you've outgrown....?

    Born in 1960 and lived off a steady diet of the holy trinity of early 70s hard rock - Zeppelin/Purple/Sabbath. Zeppelin has held up 100%. Sabbath and Purple, not so much. Still love them but a lot of their stuff I don't listen to at all anymore.

    What classical would you suggest to a rock fan

    IMO this is quite simply the greatest classical composition for guitar. I got to see it performed by Angel Romero with the San Diego symphony about 10 years back. Goosebumps man. I'd also recommend Stravinsky's Firebird Suite for rock fans. Yes use to use this as background music prior to...

    Old rock songs which are nowadays politically incorrect

    Slide it In - Whitesnake Sometimes you seem just like a stranger to me, But, all the games you play make it so easy to see. You're looking for love, tho' you try to deny, The things you put me through Tell me what I've got to do to you. I'm gonna slide it in, right to the top, Slide it in, I...

    Yes (Official Thread)

    Favorite prog rock band by far. Close to the Edge being their magnus opus in every way IMO. Who write lyrics like this anymore? A seasoned witch could call you from the depths of your disgrace And rearrange your liver to the solid mental grace And achieve it all with music that came quickly...

    Rush (Official Thread)

    My band back in the late 70s played tons of Rush. Saw them in a small theater back east on the Farewell to Kings tour. A few arena shows since. I break them into 4 periods. Early stuff prior to commercial success - Caress of Steel being my fave. Late 70s early 80s mass success - Permanent...

    The Flower Kings

    Love The Flower Kings. Retropolis and Space Revolver are my faves. Never found myself paying much attention to the lyrics. Hope I don't start. I use to love Neal Morse up until that morning he took that fateful jog. He's been too overbearing ever since.

    Best Forgotten Bands of the 70's.

    Haven't scrolled through the entire thread but I'll add Montrose. Their 1973 debut was so groundbreaking and either consciously, or subconsciously influenced so many of the heavier bands back then. Was also a bit of a blueprint for the sound of 1978's VH1 - seeing as Ted Templeton worked on both.

    Queen (Official Thread)

    Can't wait for the movie. Got to see Queen on November 12, 1977 at the old Boston Garden. Still mind blowing thinking back on it.

    Hi All: Classic Rocker Here

    Born in 1960. Massive fan of so many classic bands as well as a lot of newer stuff and genres other than rock. Picked up a guitar at 14, played pro from 17 till 21, then got a real job. :nana: Never stopped playing though. I currently have 1 acoustic, 1 bass, and 6 electrics along with all...
