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".

    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
