There are a lot of shows that I have seen over the years from the '70's on... but a few stand out in my mind....Jimmy Page solo, the man cast a spell over the audience that was amazing to watch. The Rolling Stones- Steel Wheels tour in KC... they played a lot of their Psychedelic classics. ;-) The last Pink Floyd tour sans Roger Waters in Philadelphia.. it was as good and even better then I had a right to expect with the great effects, music and pyrotechnics. Grateful Dead 1980 in San… Continue
Great to meet other Rush & classic rock fans through this network. I also like some of the new alternative rock like you mentioned: Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins as well as Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Creed, Bush, among others, since there are pretty good talented rockers out there, but of course nothing compared to good old classic rock era. I agree, Mexican food is the bomb, I lived in "Tequila Land" many years. Have you had "pozole" or "carne en su jugo" by any chance? Those are my favorite Mexican dishes. Yummy!!! I'm getting hungry now, got to go. Rock on! Janis
Right on man,I love vinyl, I've got quite the collection myself. Beach Boys had alot of good tunes, as well as mamas and papas, that's like what my dad had in his cd essentials. Oh man, I could listen to The Beatles over The Rolling Stones any day, no one seems to acknowledge the fact that The beatles made it big doing R&B covers. But they undeniably did so much with music and changed with the times as they did, great music. I was listening to The Church, I've heard the name before but not the music, I dig it, kinda reminds me of R.E.M./ The Cure. I can also dig on the Smashing Pumpkins and soundgarden. Yes is also a great band that goes unnoticed, I became attracted when I heard the song "Roundabout" on one of my vinyl records that has various groups.
It was my dad, he had The Jimi Hendrix Eperience, and The best of The Doors, from there I looked into as many bands as possible, from Simon and Garfunkel, to Neil Young and so forth. I can hardly listen to anything now a days, classic rock is in my blood man.
