I noticed we didnít have a thread on that decadeís rock output.

Maybe itís time to rehabilitate The Seventies? Of course, there was a lot of crap recorded back then, with all kinds of musical assaults to the human ear. But there was also some great music.

My first nod to The Stones. One from Sticky Fingers that I feel captures well the overall spirit of the early 70ís.

Nice one, Mr. Dice!

Hey Acrobat62, that's a great choice, too. Did you know that Chuck whathisname from 3 Dog is a   
story all in himself - a great story about overcoming heroin addiction...can't remember where I read it though.

I don't really know much about them but liked listening to them and not sure who in my family, one of the older siblings, had a pile of 45's and we had a bunch of 3DN stuff

ya i was raised on 70s rock and have only grown to love it more and more throughout the years. some of the earliest songs ive loved were Elton, Pink Floyd, Queen etc.

i pretty much read 70s rock biographies exclusively these days. Freddie Mercury, Bowie, Elton, Van Halen etc.

Abba, Rolling Stones, Elton, Bowie, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, Joni, The Carpenters, Disco, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Led Zeppelin and many others for me.

1970s, best decade ever for music.

Piano Man, Turnstiles, The Stranger, 52nd Street.  Some of his best stuff.

I never really got into Queen for some reason.  I mean I know they're one of the greats but their music just doesn't do it for me.  Maybe they're too operatic, I don't know.

I forgot the Bee Gees, but like I said many others.
