    I saw Uriah Heep live Q, way back when. They were the opening act for 3 Dog Night. I had never heard of them. I thought 'what the heck, what kinda name is that?' They were good though.

    Wasn't going to post these, because I thought they may be to provincial. But, seeing an Amboy Dukes reference. Nothing pretty here. Raw, intense R & R. Part of the strange milieu that was the Motor City at the time. Hard to believe this was 50 years ago, a half century. If you want "easy listening" music, don't play these vids.



    Loud. Subversive. Volatile. Saw them several times live. Full frontal assault. You would leave the show beat-up and exhausted. The house band at the legendary Grande Ballroom. Upon release, had to chase down the original album, not the "sanitized" version with the offending language and liner notes removed. An anthem of sorts.



    [media=]



    Still recall quite vividly seeing the Stooges play at a local music venue. Summer of 1969. Mt. Holly would have all the Michigan bands playing there all year long. In the lodge during the winter, outside at the base of the ski hill in the summer. Standing there watching Iggy writhing around on the stage. Ron Ashton's simple three chord power riff. Like WTF. This is way over the top. And no clue that in the future, they would be considered to be "influential". No Peace, Love, and Happiness **** here. It's primal.



    [media=]



    And one more. Straight outta Flint. The members coming from two other bands playing the circuit. They became kinda big, for a brief period of time. No "I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home" niceties here. Mark's fuzzed out guitar, Mel Schacher's thick bass, Don Brewer's mad drumming. The "Red" album.

    I remember that summer we were riding our Lemon Peelers and Orange Crates riding around the neighborhood with this stuff blaring everywhere.

    I kept getting my bell bottoms caught in my chain ring and your front tire kept falling off when you popped wheelies.



    Right on.

    I saw Gary Puckett and the UG, they were very good, Gary could legitimately sing live as well as he did on records. Another band that dressed up that I saw was Paul Revere and the Raiders. Silly outfits but they weren't too bad, at least at the time my girlfriend liked them, and she was worth taking to any concert image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Saw Steppenwolf around that same time frame, they were very good. Saw the Hollies, surprisingly good, nice harmony just like on the records. Saw, the Guess Who, that had to be one of the most boring bands ever. No stage presence at all. Saw Credence Clearwater, very good, the band onstage however should have been called 3 guys playing while watching John Fogerty perform. I don't mean anything derogatory by that, it's just that he was the band. Saw Elton John in his early days on tour, very good.

    Not sure how "obscure" this one is, and I've honestly never been a fan of the lead singer's work (especially the solo stuff), but there is something about this song:

    Songs like this aren't written today. Rock operas telling a story, building up to a climax. The 70s was an epic musical time!




    Could pick anything off Bat Out of **** as a rock opera song, so how about a deep cut:



    All Revved Up With No Place to Go - Meat Loaf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=241mnuTfRe4&list=PL6A58047326E21576&index=5&t=0s



    Of course if we're talking rock operas, have to include something off Quadrophenia... personal favorite of mine:



    Love Reign O'er Me - The Who https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PnXts0Ni8I

    I saw Strawberry Alarm Clock in the late 60's. I believe they opened for the James Gang. Here's some trivia for you, their guitarist, Ed King went on to play guitar for Lynyrd Skynyrd (created & played the opening guitar riff in "Sweet Home Alabama" for e.g.) Here's some pics of him in both bands...

    SAC (in center) and LS

    The original Sweet H. A with Ed King 1974

    1977 Concert w/o him,pretty lively, changed to Steve Gaines guitarist plus they added the Honkettes

    This all is presenting me with a quandary, so I ask those more in the know.

    The Clash, U2, The Police, The Jam, Talking Heads. All great bands, all formed in the late seventies 70's but productive into the 80's?

    Where do you put them?

    The first bass line I learned to play. I then realized I couldn't keep a beat if my life depended on it. I never got to see these guys, I was too young, but I sure liked them.







    Never got to see these guys either, but another one of those songs that just never quite made commercial success but I can assure you I listened to this a lot as a kid.

    This one is for Touch.



    Being raised by wolves wasn't easy for this young golfer (though I hadn't actually considered golfing at this point in my life). I was in middle school when I went to this show. Yep, I had to leave before the third set, and I was one of those kids which for some reason really enjoyed the Grateful Dead. At this point in my life, I was unfamiliar with Ken Kesey, or actually acid in any form. But I can still say, without a doubt, the best Dead show I ever saw. Here I am digressing.



    Because I was 12/13 years old, my mother drops me off with some money in my pocket to buy the obligatory T Shirt and some food and a drink. Well, I couldn't leave while they were playing, it was that good. The older guy next to me got me high early in the show because he must of realized I probably didn't have a lot of weed on me at the time (my friend, only child, abstained) and unlike subsequent times did I realize the draw of MJ and Doritos. At the first intermission I went to get something to eat. The Stanley Theatre is an old building, a beautiful building, carpeted and everything.



    Walking out to the Dorito stand there was a scantily clad woman on the top, with a long flowing skirt on the bottom and flowers in her hair (yes, she took it literally). There was no music, but I will be danged if she wasn't twirling and dancing to the sounds in her head. Now to a middle schooler this is absolutely something you want/ need to stare at, but politeness just made me stop for a second to watch. What I saw next was too much for this young stoned child. There was, presumably her boyfriend, throwing glitter on her as she twirled and danced to the music in her head. So here is a little music from the very show I went to.



    It was at this point I knew there was more to the Grateful Dead than just great music. To this day, if I go on a road trip, the first album/CD is a Dead bootleg from one of their many shows.



    Honestly, this is the concert that really started my love of music and seeing music live.

    Driving to a college basketball game last night, I heard Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt back to back. Felt like I was in a time warp. Get to the game, and I hear a bunch of rap, Baby Shark, and other recent pop songs. I feel very fortunate to have grown up in the 60s and 70s.

    such a talented wee dude from Cleveland. Great sounds from him for decades.

    Classically trained and an outstanding student in classical piano.

    Raspberries to Huge pop hit creator.

    I'm a big fan of Mr. Eric Carmen.

    Raspberries were one of my favorite sounds from the middle 70's

    This song is from 1974

    Here is the artist performing it Germany in 2016.

    Could the back up dancer chics ( fun they are though) wear anything more drab? lol

    Well I guess silver glittery tops have no business being called drab.

    Their shoes....? too ****......lol









    Great smooth jam from the mid 70's

    Stomp is having to be posted by me. RIP Brothers Johnson. Awesome beats they created.

    ABBA ! of course and "Cancer, My name is Larrry." and that grand flowing slow jam.



    Thanks for the "ACE" in my book Bobcat

    This all is presenting me with a quandary, so I ask those more in the know.

    The Clash, U2, The Police, The Jam, Talking Heads. All great bands, all formed in the late seventies 70's but productive into the 80's?

    Where do you put them?




    80's definitely

    Keep em out of here Mr. Hockey lol




    But how about a request please Pete ( Mr. Simulator burnout guy) in MT. ?

    I say you make (write me) me a little diddy involving the Mt. Rushmore rock song from the late 70's ----

    Running with the Devil

    I know you are a God fearing wholesome dude , but possibly dig deep for the ole touch.
