From the late-70s AOR period through now (though the classic rock format has been in decline in terms of losing stations since the early 2000s). I don't listen much, but the freshest songs my local station plays are 20-plus years old -- Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers...What years do you propose this era to be?
I saw Pablo Cruise at Worlds Of Fun in KC ,How about The Edger Winter Group.
They had some great hits like Frankenstein and Free Ride, but they never seemed to be talked up with the bigger rock groups out there.
There is also Pablo Cruise, although they were more pop rock and Yacht Rock Radio material, they had some pretty gitchy hits in their hay day. Still touring I think.
Man, I'm glad you stuck up for Pablo Cruise!I saw Pablo Cruise at Worlds Of Fun in KC ,
78/79 ish ?
They came up in suggestions Saturday night whilst the lady and I were listening to Spotify . Our eyes would light up when we heard the 1st notes of those classic songs !!!
I’m not ashamed of my Yacht Rock .......Man, I'm glad you stuck up for Pablo Cruise!
I thought I was going to get run out of here for that pick, lol, but I loved those guys, and I love to hear those songs even today. There were some pretty darn good guitar solo's and the rythme section locked it all down pretty nicely. Good songwriting as well.
Yes. To me, classic rock is 50s and 60s stuff, with the Stones probably being the quintessential classic rock band, but I've learned from experience this is not what most people mean by classic rock. They mean Led Zeppelin and beyond. I've even been lectured that what I'm referring to is rock 'n' roll while rock came later and is different. Whatever. I've learned to ask, especially when a classic rock band is looking for a drummer. I ask what they mean by classic rock because while I can do Charlie Watts I can't do Bonham. They usually mean Bonham.I think we need to have a conversation about what exactly falls under the term "Classic Rock".
