Would have mentioned several Floyd songs, but are they really considered Rock & Roll?

Kevin, some great songs you mentioned. Always loved Itchycoo Park
and Time is one of the all time greats. Something in the Air was great
by Newman, but Petty did a good cover version.

In no particular order:

Baba O'Reilly by the Who

Sugar Magnolia by the Dead

My My Hey Hey by Zep

You Can't Always Get What You Want by the Stones

Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys by Traffic

Kev, "Bridge" is another great song, I always liked Trowers music as
Procol Harum was one of my favorite groups. A great Harum album was
"Shine On Brightly." I know what you mean about Traffic, Winwood is
awesome. Mama and I are going to see Dave Mason next month.

If you got 'em, smoke 'em.
