70s Rock 

I guess a lot of us came to guitar through rock.

Too often beer drenched nostalgia can be unrewarding.

But having sought it's fragile rewards tonight I am digging Rithcie Blackmore. I got this live set on cassette at a jumble sale by some miracle aged maybe seventeen. I would have been five it was recorded.

I wonder if nostalgia will be so precious in the future...... when nothing is hard to come by ?

WARNING if you have never had affection for dad rock then this is not for you.

me to and I still get a kick when I see some old Sex Pistols videos:





(I dont know what I want, but I know how to get it) One of the best lines in rock lyricks. Its so much in time and it gave a major kick in societys belly at that time. It even came to the village of Nakskov on the island of Lolland in the Baltic sea, where I was 14 and depressed. It gave me the power to get up from the sofa and to continue. It was a change for some of us.
Yeah, the music is simple and not specially well played, but who cared when Johnny started singing and i still like that intro to "Pretty Vacant" Simple and spot on. Its one of the pieces of music that i would have liked to make. This and Shostakovitch Cello concert number 2 in G major.

RE: 70s Rock (in reply to guitarbuddha

It was a unique decade of beauitiful music.
Unique in time and space.

Making you sad about its unretrievable fact.

Been showing Black Sabbath to amazed youngster here who like heavy metal and yet don´t know the origin.
And longing for Richie Blackmore I had a friend bring a DVD with himself last year.

It is not simply nostalgica. It is about best music ever made.

Since decades I am looking for somewhat grooving music that may not just be a lame copy of past original. And the findings are so scarce.
The big acts of that time just covered it all, leaving near zero blanks.

From there, when you come to my place, from the Beatles to the Stones, from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Procol Harum, from Patty Smith to Melanie, from Pink Floyd ( before the plastic concession of Brick in a wall) to J.J. Cale will embrace you.

And you may find that no event can match the vibes a party with really groovy music can.

RE: 70s Rock (in reply to Ruphus

Cheers guys for your warm replies.

I heartily agree with everyone. Best metal riffs ever have to be 'Sabbaths Wheels of Confusion' tied with Motorheads Orgazmatron, summing a whole genre up on one chord and in a good way.

My favourite Sex Pistols' has to be Sid Vicious singing Eddie Cochran's 'Something Else'.

At the moment we have some amazing guitar players that are influenced by prog rock/metal.

Just check Tosin Abasi from Animals as Leaders. Don't be afraid of the heaviness (8 strings), there's lots of clean passages with mindblowing right hand fingers extravaganza.

Not to mention he is the most sharply dressed guitarist in rock history.
And a BIG Stanley Jordan fan.

RE: 70s Rock (in reply to guitarbuddha

An interesting thread about a renewed interest of mine. I am starting over, re-learning the blues/R&B and working up into rock from there. Kind of a renaissance quest for an old man.

Blackmore on "Made in Japan" was fantastic. "The Mule" and "Highway Star" still bounce around my head.

In the 80's our band was heavily influenced by Sabbath and other very heavy 70s rock bands that myself and our founder grew up with together. Since we were six years old, in fact. We saw hundreds of bands in Reading and London. The Sensational Alex Harvey Band also stand out for me.

This is we. Perhaps you can hear what I mean?

Hey Simon looks like you'r nostalgia is richer than most. I am digging those right now as I type. Sounds pretty Iron Butterfly which is no bad thing at all.








Kurt Weill anyone ?



Oops it Jacques Brel not Kurt Weill.

Zal Cleminson was one of the best guitarists of the era AND he is still alive!

He's not forgotten. I saw an interview just the other day with Guthrie Govan and he name dropped Cleminson as an influence.

Like Blackmore he really played for and with the band. Not just riffs and solos but fluid and full impromptu arrangements. Randy Rhoads was in the same vein.

I love guitar solos (sometimes) but the guys who could really breathe life into a simple chord progression impress me a lot more than the dudes who copied their solos and missed the point of what a guitar is really for (I'm looking at you Kirk Hammett).

RE: 70s Rock (in reply to guitarbuddha

Yeah, I kind of well up inside with nostalgia at what these bands were doing back then. Having just caught up on some of the "commercial successes" of 2013, it seems there is still a lot of crap around.

Back in the day, we had the album charts, rock festivals and The Old Grey Whistle Test for our revenge.

What now... get down, get muddy and be seen in a selfie at Glastonbury with Mumford and Sons?

Yeah lets storm Glastonbury en masse.

Strict dress code !!! You come either as Lemmy, Sid Vicious or early period Alice Cooper.

Lets suffocate these hipsters with their own organic Falafel wraps.

Noone leaves alive except Radiohead, and only if they have the good sense not to say a single word.

I don't know...Metallica in the 80's had to be one of the best rock bands ever. In my humble opinion 80's Metallica is the best hard rock/ metal band ever, but that's very subjective

I pretty much can only listen to Latin pop music as far as recent releases go

Movies seem to be as good as ever, but what the hell happened to music?

Mark I love early Metallica, don't mistake me. Especially Orion and Fade To Black .

But for me everything good comes from Hetfield.


Here's some Apocaliptica

And how about this for a tribute from Hayseed Dixie ?

I love those guys. If the song is good then it works and if the song is weak it is hilarious.

My wife has memories of being in Edinburgh during the 80's and whilst working on her ''Saughton'' based allotment ....next door to the prison ....., being highly amused to hear blasting from behind the high walls ''Framed'' by the sensational Alex Harvey Band!! Locked up and still laughing....the intricacies of the penal system!!
Other great names from this time and bands I've been lucky enough to play support band to more than once in the past....Dr Feelgood, Budgie, the Groundhogs, all classic....all still make me smile.
''Being young'' does have some good memories!!

Best

RE: 70s Rock (in reply to guitarbuddha

My first musical crush was Metallica. I loved that band. Until that horrible black album came out in 91 or so.

D, I liked Megadeth too. Kind of silly, but they had something going. Friedman had some very nice sounds.

I haven't listened to rock since about 92, actually. Just a few weeks ago I decided to give it another chance, but I'm still in the 50s...

.........................not sure I "get" Buddy Holly, guys.

Why dont you guys make an 80th rock thread now that you like it so much? This is about the 70th.
From Psyco glam: (Thats what i listened to when the others listened to ABBA)



To New Wave. This is the song that identify with my squat years. (That was after Sex Pistols made me get up from the couch and move on):

RE: 70s Rock (in reply to guitarbuddha

While showing stuff to youngsters me also launched Uriah Heep.
And while listening to what hadn´t reached my ears for so many years, I discovered what I had been missing.

... Funny thing is, often when I dig out some old gem that hadn´t been played on my stereo, soon after mainstream will accidentally revive it too.

That´s how it´s been with the Stones ( when everyone booed when you´d put them on the turn table in the parties of the eighties ), with Led Zeppelin, Cocker, Mamas & Papas, Paul Simon, Deep Purple, Barry White or Steely Dan.

RE: 70s Rock (in reply to guitarbuddha

When I listen to rock, I am taking no stroll down memory lane--for me, the music is always alive, always now. Perhaps this attitude is due to my interest also in classical music, which is also always alive, always now, whether it's Bach or Bartok. Flamenco, also; I listen to all of these as if there were no time separating one work from another--Doo-wop to the Shins: as Kaa was fond of saying, "All One".

Led Zeppelin, IMHO, holds a unique place in rock, due to the extraordinary richness of texture of their songs. 95% of rock or pop consists of essentially a repetitive and usually quite simple rhythm track to provide some sort of sonic background for the singer & lyrics, then there is the obligatory guitar (or whatever) cadenza, then return to the singer, then end. And I like, nay love, so much of it. With Zep, however, unlike most everyone else, every moment, every space, is filled with interesting variations of instrument, of timbre, of volume, of tempo..... Nobody came close. Every time I hear Led Zep I, the first album, it blows my mind--truly a signpost album in the history of rock.
