The funny thing is that this was the music we played at college parties in the late 80s, the music the younger of our own parents listened to. This says a lot about the "quality" of later pop music. Forgotten after 6 months  Nuts

BTW, I just was at a mardi gras party on saturday, where the music was 1930s-1940s themed, all jazz and swing!  Smokin cool
Many young people there, and (almost) everybody dressed the part! Especially the women looked nice!  Smokin cool

I can imagine Superfly in a Zoot suit! Big grin

Grand Funk Railroad......


On the road for forty days,
Last night in little rock put me in a haze.
Sweet, sweet connie -- doin’ her act,
She had the whole show and that’s a natural fact.
Up all night with freddy king,
I got to tell you poker’s his thing.
A-booze ’n ladies keep me right,
As long as we can make it to the show tonight.

Chorus
We’re an american band.
We’re an american band.
We’re coming to your town, we’ll help you party it down.
We’re an american band.

Four young chaquitas in omaha,
Was waitin’ for the band to return from the show.
Feelin’ good, feelin’ right, it’s saturday night,
The hotel detective -- he was out-a-sight.
Now, these fine ladies, they had a plan,
They was out to meet the boys in the band.
They said, come on, dudes, let’s get it on,
And we proceeded to tear that hotel down.

Chorus

Chorus

Chorus

Chorus

We’re an american band, ooo-ooo.
We’re an american band, ooo-ooo.

Superfly,

For me something to be considered classic rock means
a) that the performers know how to play their instruments and are also able to play an instrumental (you notice, there are very few musicians around nowadays, who can play an instrumental)
b) they really work when they are playing...
c) no digital frills during their performance

MD11Engineer and AA61Hvy:
Mainstream media classifies Jamiroquai, Lenny Kravitz and Maxwell as 'retro'.
What the hell?
They are just talented artist putting out good music.

i guess having talent is considered retro now.

"Thin Lizzy" (inverted commas are deliberate!) are on tour at the moment.  Wow!

My surprise at this development was matched only by hearing a couple of years ago that Lynyrd Skynyrd had "re-formed", which was a Dawn of the Dead moment if ever there was one.  Laugh out loud

Maybe so Branco, but i saw them on that tour a couple of years ago supporting Deep Purple and they were superb.

What I want to know is when Led Zep will tour again.

Never. Not only because they've always said they wouldn't, but because Plant's voice has gone.

You can still see the Who though. And they really do still pack a live punch.
