CCR, John Fogarty was born in Berkley California. Didnt know they spoke cajun there.
Peter Green wrote Black Magic Woman while in Fleetwood Mac. It was a different band in its first incarnation. HUGE CCR fan, yeah, John Fogarty lived in the Bayou for a period of time, taking in the countryside and playing/studying music with local musicians.

The 80's had tons of great bands. U2, Michael Jackson, Prince, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Queen, Iron Maiden, Run DMC, Public Enemy, NWA, AC/DC, Beastie Boys, Motley Crue, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Journey, a ton of great punk bands (Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains, etc).

Overall yes, there has been some pretty good music in the last 10 years though

Jack White is pretty awesome, he's the new Neil Young.

The Black Keys rock and Cage the Elephant is the closest band I've heard to Nirvana. The Strokes are a damn good band as well.

I just never really go into any of the bands from the 80's outside of the Beasties and NWA. I can't hate on MJ either.

It's hard to call AC/DC an 80s band with six albums that came out in the mid-to-late 70s. The Bon Scott-era of AC/DC is a 70s thing. I like Brian Williams, but the good stuff came in the 70s. I am a big AC/DC guy if you can't tell.

Girls Got Rhythm and If You Want Blood are absurdly good.

Alice Cooper owns a hot dog restaurant Cooperstown in Phoenix. Big Unit Randy Johnson is co-owner.

Anthony Bourdain had an episode with Ted Nugent...

Ya, the 2000's were really marked by the rise of hip hop. Eminem, Kanye, Jay-Z, Outkast, Justin Timberlake....bands like that. You also have had some incredible singers like Amy Winehouse and Adele as well as some pretty good indy bands like the White Stripes, Black Keyes, and the Killers. I never know where to put Green Day. They are an incredibly successful band but I always think of them as a 90's band as I preferred their Kerplunk, Dookie, Insomniac stuff but they are much better known for what they did in the 2000's.

I agree. It's why I believe that the digital age, to an extent, a fairly great one at that, has killed music as we knew it before. Bands just aren't what they used to be. It used to be all about the album and the experience, the touring, promoting the band and selling albums and therein producing an album that was supposed to be filled with songs that documented where the band was, who they were, and where they had been. It didn't have to be deep but it had to embody who they were and the music they played. These days it is all about singles, fluff. Obviously you can't say it about everybody but what is going on right now is not anything like what once was and many of us are understandably disappointed with it.

AC/DC is a tough one to call. I think most people know them from their post Back in Black stuff which came out in 80. I think you can call them a 70's and 80's band like you can call Zepplin a 60's or 70's band since their first 2 albums came out in the 60's.

Yeah, I guess if you are really into hip hop, you loved it. But even then, and I am not a rap fan by any means but I can appreciate good rap, Notorious BIG, Tupac, etc. Even that doesn't seem the same. I suppose Eminem is to an extent. Green Day, I put in the 90's for sure, good staying power for them and still make good music for sure but yeah, the 90's saw their best albums IMO as well.

Plante blew out his vocal chords and Zepplin took a 1 year hiatus from touring before coming out with Stairway to Heaven. Never could reach the high notes again like on his first few albums.

Didn't know that, very interesting.


Here's one for you, probably will not come as a surprise:

Keith Moon was notorious for blowing up hotel toilets when the band was on the road. The band had even been banned by Hoilday Inn and a few other major chains. I recall reading John Entwhistle talking about how he had joined him on a few occasions and on one, they had put too many explosives into the toilet and as he described "That toilet was just dust on the walls when we checked out".

Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams had a baby?

Agreed on the Bon Scott era, it was better.

Yeah, it is tough. I love both Bon Scott era and Brian Johnson era AC/DC. They had more success with Johnson though. I've seen them a couple times live, hell of a ****ing show. My Dad actually saw them with Bon Scott, said it was unreal as well. Favorite song is "It's a Long Way to the Top", the bag pipes make it for me.

I can't believe I put the TV guy on accident.

I'll never forget watching Angus shred in the second row on the Black Ice Tour.

Damn good song. I will listen to that on the way home. I have a 15-song CD of all AC/DC with Bon Scott on vocals in my car. It's the cat's meow.

95 percent of music now is awful. I'm disgusted with all the crap like Gotye and dance stuff out there. Chief Keef, 2 Chainz, etc. are also complete trash.

I wish I could have lived in the good old days of Zeppelin, The Who, AC/DC, Hendrix, etc.
I don't feel bad for likeing their new songs. I have a great music taste and hear it many times during a week. I know about all the bands you listed and many more.

It's still fun stuff and feel good music.

Best Bon Scott: The Jack
Best Brian Johnson: Back in Black - whole album

There's plenty of great music coming out nowadays, you just have to look beyond the radio.

Fall Out Boy has the most unintelligible lyrics of any band I've ever seen.

People always tend to think what is out now sucks and everything was good before. I remember in the 90's when everyone said music sucks and now people look back fondly on it.

You make know it from this:



There is good music these days, but the songs that are popular are awful. You have to dig deep to find good stuff to listen to now. That sucks.

I hate it when you forget about a song that was awesome. However, it's cool when your are "introduced" back to it.

Great video:

I preferred late 70's/early 80's punk acts that I got into from watching Return of the Living Dead as a kid (Great soundtrack)

The Cramps
T.S.O.L
The Flesh Eaters
45 Grave
The Damned

Had the sountrack to that movies and some of these bands individual album/cassette tapes when I was younger

Always felt the Sex Pistols though not bad were overated
