    Harry Chapin

    I saw Harry Chapin in concert at Admiral Carney Park, located in Naples, Italy in the late seventies. It has always been so sad what happened to him... I needed one more fare to make my night....

    The Doobie Brothers

    What a Fool Believes. Anybody who was ever in love with someone who didn't return that love, knows the truth of these words.  Because " No wise man has the power to reason away what he believes he sees.

    The Kinks

    I think "The Kinks" are my favourite rock band. When I was a teen-ager I remember listening always the same record with great songs : "The Hard Way" , "Schooldays", "Headmaster". I came to tears sometimes even if I do not understand all the lyrics. I love the voice of the singer...

    Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy NameThe song

    describes a man's thoughts just before being sent to the gallows. He begins to feel terror and realizes he really is afraid of dying, despite claims that he's not. At the end of the vocal section, the man gets executed; this is followed by a long instrumental section...

    Grew Up With It.

    My dad was always a huge classic rock fan, and rather than rebel and go in the opposite direction, as I grew up I found myself loving it just as much and perhaps even more than he did. There's not much to tell about this story. I just love classic rock. In fact, I love pretty...

    My Classic Rock Experience

    I am a huge music fan. I will basically listen to anything that "sounds good". I don't know how else to describe my musical tastes, as music is such a diverse topic. Concerning Classic Rock, I really hate the label "Classic Rock", like who came up with that label? Probably AOR...

    I Grew Up On Classic Rock..

    I love classic rock music because it reminds me of my childhood.  My dad had albums and 8-tracks of Steely Dan, Santana, Sly and The Family Stone, The Eagles, CCR, Bread, The Beetles, Three Dog Night, America, and many more.  I love the 70's rock the best. ...

    Glam?

    Anybody know much about 70's Glam? Not 80's Glam Metal. I know the major bands were like Sweet, T. Rex, Bowie, NY Dolls... It wasn't considered like serious rock? What've I heard is more pop but I keep hearing that it was also considered proto-punk. So, I'm just wondering?

    It still comes down to the Stones, Led Zep, Aerrosmith, Steely Dan etc for me. The classic sounds of the Doors or Credence Clearwater Revival is still the best music to me.  Rock and Roll forever!

    Deja Vu By Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

    One of the best rock songs I've ever heard in my life. Don't believe me? Listen to it. And if you don't get it, keep listening until you do.The song begins at 19:19 although, it could also benefit you to listen to the whole album.
