Not sure how much interest there will be in this thread, but I believe there is quite a contingent of us who have a lot of love and interest in Classic Rock.  I bought my first album (Meet the Beatles) in 1965 at age 8, and didn't stop until well into adulthood.  The list nerd in also for some reason made me document who I liked.  So, I figured to start with 1973 and work forwards. 

No given format otherwise, and just want to hear other's perspective of when music....  really was music.

Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies
================================

The Live ABC "In Concert" event really blew me away with that era of Alice Cooper.  For those into history, You Tube- "Elected" for one of what I consider one of the earliest Music Videos of that format.  Not that I disliked the "hippy formula" that worked in rock for more than 5 years butt.......   Hearing acts like Alice Cooper and Black Sabbath seemed ground breaking and refreshing

I absolutely agree with Elvis Presley who said; "Roy Orbison is the greatest singer who ever lived!"  My collection includes everything he ever recorded and some stuff he recorded but never was released.

Great point.  One thing about popular music.  Teenage kids tend to dislike their parents music, and in my case Orbison and Elvis  That is why  I in  '60's and '70's really wasn't into those '50's acts.  Of course, as I grew older, I understood the reverence for these pioneers.  And that hat really hit home when in the '80's the Traveling Willburys were formed.   I got to enjoy the legends of an earlier era (Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison) join forces with my era (Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne).  Their collaboration was magical.

You can never have enough Grand Funk Railroad.

I can feel Him in the morning
