Bruce Springsteen was on the cover of Time and Newsweek in 1975. Music has sort of sucked ever since. Coincidence? I think not.
I never did get the appeal of 'The Boss'!
Glad it's not just me
The Sweet, 1973.
Great minds think alike.
I'm in the heart of Springsteenvile.
I don't see the fascination.
I fact, I can't stand the guy.
1973 Montrose with a young Sammy Hagar. Some of the best music of that era. Too bad they (Sammy and Ronnie) had differences they couldn't reconcile. Could've been a really big deal. Happens to the best of us.
Great, and Schwarzenegger on drums!
Not that there was not nor is not any good music post-1975, but...
Rock and Roll
Beatles, Stones, Who, Zeppelin
I was thinking that exact same thing. Awesome band. Still sounds fresh today. Before it's time. Imo Ronnie Montrose is one of the most if not the most overlooked guitar player in history. He should be mentioned in the same breath as some of the greats.
I remember back in the day in one of those small Jersey shore rock clubs Springsteen was drinking a beer at the bar and my younger brother walks up to him with a big smile and points and says "Hey I know you, arent you the drummer from INXS?" Bruce just looked at him with a "what the fukk" look on his face and shrugged! That was a funny night we all laughed our asses off LOL. Yeah I never got the fascination with his music either...
Bruce has that "I gotta crap" tone in his voice that just doesn't sound pleasing or musical to me..like he's gruntin one out while he sings..
I have to say though that on the "Voice like a cheese grater" scale Bono wins hands down..leaving Bruce a distant second..
Space Station #5...killer riff, killer tune, killer tone..killer vocals..wtf...1973..way ahead of the game for 73. And Sammy! I've said it before, imo Sam has the perfect Rock voice. He makes everything he's involved in better.
Another Joisey Boy has similar symptoms, two octaves higher. And he's wanted, dead or alive.
Lots of my favorites from 12 years old and on!!!
Wish Croce were still alive. Wonder what track he would have taken?
