Gods Of Rock Open Thread


I grew up listening to a little bit of everything. I mean that literally – Ferlin Husky, Marty Robbins, The Carpenters, Ray Conniff, Gospel, The Beatles, Benny Goodman, Tony Orlando and Dawn, Sonny and Cher, John Phillip Sousa, you name it. These days I mostly listen to Country and Western.

But my true love is Rock and Roll. Heavy Metal. Guitar tracks that will knock you on your ass played by some of the greatest musicians who ever lived. Drum tracks that rock your world.

Music that will blow the cheap speakers right out of your Chevy.

    Don’t forget Albert Lee, the most underrated awesomest guitar player bar almost none. Yes, his genre is country, rather than rock (and he’s British, go figure, LOL). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcrKVaxCJj8

      Love the comments too. Apparently telling Albert Lee how to play is like telling Picasso how to paint đŸ˜‰

    the guy that many rockers learned from

    Les Paul is one of the few people with his own section in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

    He didn’t invent the electric guitar, he only perfected it.

    Imagine if he had lived another 20 years:

      and the really good die even younger.

      I remember where I was when Jimi died.

      • myiq2xu says:

        I’m a little young for that. I still remember where I was when I heard that Elvis died. I also remember where I was when I heard about Lynyrd Skynyrd and Keith Moon. (Not the same place)

        I saw John Bonham in concert 1 month before he died.

          Elvis – In my car driving on Hwy 59 just south of Olive Avenue in Merced (crossing the Santa Fe tracks)

          Lynyrd Skynyrd – 1st period at Merced High my senior year.

          Keith Moon – Diner behind the AFEES station in Fresno. I was eating breakfast the day I went active duty in the army and I saw it in the newspaper.

      another one who died too young

    If Ludwig Von Beethoven had been born in the middle of the 20th Century he would have been a rocker.

      My husband saw Led Zeppelin’s last two concerts in the US. Of course, no one knew at the time that would be it.

      A few years later he saw Paige, Clapton, Beck, etc, etc do a benefit concert for Ronnie Lane (The Faces) which ended with all three on stage.

      And I was too young to be let out of the house for any of these….lol
