I was 13 when the Beatles came to America, and from that moment through the early 90s, music has defined my life. I still love the Beatles and I'm a huge Moody Blues fan.
Name is chuck go by FALCONCHUCK,been a fan of LYNYRD SKYNYRD from the time I was 17 I am 64 now and there still the greatest band ever glad to be part of all of this thanks.
I've been listening to this genre of music since 1965. I was a big Lovin Spoonful fan back then and have immersed myself in this music since. I have over 4000 vinyl records,vhs tapes,45's,cd's and dvd's on this subject which I've been collecting for over 48 years. Thank you for making this site a reality for all of us classic rockers.
Hi, I am Joe from Liverpool, I have been into rock music since about 1968. I have loads of albums by various artists too numerous to mention. I have been A Led Zeppelin fan since I was 14, and I first saw them live when I was 16. My other favourites are Pink Floyd (with Roger Waters preferably) who I saw live on the Dark Side of the Moon tour, Barclay James Harvest, The Eagles, and many, many others, I still buy vinyl, and I have two turntables, I still use cassettes and only purchased a new Technics deck at Christmas, so in that respect I am a stick in the mud. I hate soul music and Motown with a passion. I also have over 20 Sinatra albums, so my musical taste is very varied. I have 8 guitars and I can't play any of them very well (that's the truth). Nice to meet you all and I hope to have some decent discussions about Led Zeppelin, and other griups of course.
Hello Rich — and everybody here,
Just signed up a couple of days ago. How did I miss this? Wow. Well, I'm here now. I'm a former musician, happily retired with a cool day job. In the late '60s/early '70s my older brother would bring home all of these great new records, many of which are still my favorites to this day. I'm also the publisher of J.G.R.A., the James Gang Rides Again Archive, which takes up an insane amount of my free time! Before that, I was a regular contributor over at Discogs (I think I left it in somewhat better shape than I found it...) Anyway, I could go on... Looking forward to being part of this community. Thanks for having me.
I grew up on classic rock before it became classic like most of you probably did if you were around during the late 60's/70's. The Beatles, the Stones, the Who, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Sabbath, Alice Cooper, GFR, Kiss, Heart, Skynyrd, Van Halen & AC/DC are the main ones that rocked my world & always will. I was born & raised in NC, I'm an only child but I wasn't too lonely.
It's been great having you here Wayne!
Greetings, Rich and fellow audiophiles. I am Hacketteer, in deference to my great admiration for guitarist Steve Hackett and Genesis. Or just call me Joe, a trend my momma started back in 1964. I have been a classic rock fan for nearly 37 years. It all started in 1977, when I moseyed on down Liberty Avenue in Richmond Hill, NY to this strange, luring temple that would exhaust most of my discretionary income for years: the local record shop. Remember those? Records, huge posters, the fragrance of incense, smoking paraphernalia of dubious origin lining the glass shelves...
The record was Elton John's Greatest Hits, and yes, I am still a fan today, although my tastes for Elton's music run deeper into his catalog. Anyway, I'm a transplanted New Yorker here in North Carolina, enjoying the weather and the lifestyle, although I do still migrate north to visit friends and hit the occasional concert. Most of my great love is for classic rock. I do dabble in Americana, Prog, Folk and heck, anything that sounds good.
Looking forward to meeting everyone in the community. Thanks for having me.
Ah the good old record shop! Welcome to the site Joe, looking forward to seeing you on here more often and getting involved :)
