Just wondering

Recommended Posts

Why isn't there a Classic Rock sub-forum under Music? No classic rock fans on this site?

I, for one am a huge Classic Rock fan. I guess the question is what would you define as "Classic Rock". Each generation has their own definition. For me, i suppose it would be 60s and 70s. It was the beginning of a sad era when i first heard the likes of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Warrant, Poison, etc being played on  "Classic" or "Oldies" radio.

I think the 60's and 70's are classic rock. Bad Company, Free, Stones, etc.

I've wondered the same.  I too consider late 60's through late 70's to be Classic Rock and I have several cds from bands of that era in my collection.

Exactly. As has been said before many times, if it wasn't for acts like Sweet, Slade, The Kinks, Suzi Quatro, The Doors, Jimi, of course, the ones mentioned above and many others, we wouldn't have the music we love today. I reckon i would probably include the 50s as well. Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Dion, Del Shannon etc.. All tame by our standards, but back in the day that was as close as you could get to "Hard Rock".
