Big name classic rock groups everyone likes but you
« on: November 03, 2017, 09:38:18 pm »
Rolling Stones
Van Halen
Aerosmith

Doesn't mean I dislike all their songs.  I do love one song from Aerosmith - Dream On.

I'll throw one band in

Boston

I'll listen to them but ask me to pick out a list of classic rock to listen to and I'll never pick Boston. Not too fond of The Doors either
Topics Falcon doesn't know anything about- Cars, Binary, Accounting, and 13th Century Polish Literature

I can live with Boston and the Doors - just not excited about them.
The Cars - agreed
The Beatles - I'm half and half.  I don't care for the "yeah, yeah, yeah" twangie stuff but do love Elenore Rigby, Yesterday, Here Comes the Sun, and etc.

"Big name".  "Everyone likes".

They were pretty big and lots of people liked them.  Perhaps not so many as I thought.  Steve Lukather is supposed to be some great guitarist, but I never heard it with them. 

Ok, then how about The Kinks?  I always thought they sounded like a garage band. 

Joe Pancreas and the Eskimo Leftists don't count.  They were not big  and I know of only a handful that liked them.   We played 30 dollar guitar one time with my band and the owner of the place told us to never play that song again!!   It's a great song  with a great groove.

Toto was pretty big.  2 big hits Rosanna and I Felt the Rain Down in Africa.  I really like those 2 songs but don't know much else from them.

I can't stand Rick Springstein either.

I wouldn't classify them as "classic rock".  I actually liked them; but, then again, I am one weird dude.  I like a very wide spectrum of music excluding Rap and Opera.

Santana.  I tire of hearing Black Magic Woman and Oye Como Va 50 times a day.

I'd get tired of any group 50 times a day.  BTW, I also hate kiddie pop music like Madonna, Katie Perry, and Cyrus.  No thanks.  That would have been Bay City Rollers and KISS in my day.  Teenie Bopper music.
