    LOL!!! Old fart at upper 40's? I'm a little older, but I just don't see myself listening to the smooth sounds of Johnny Cash over AC/DC. But I certainly won't haggle with anyone that does enjoy him. It's funny, my oldest attended a private HS and on t-shirt day you could tell who were the offspring of parents that grew up rockers, they were all wearing Ozzy, Zeppelin, Rush and ZZ Top shirts.

    I have an older brother, he was a 60's child and always blasting his speakers around the house. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix, Cream, CCR, The Who, the Birds, Alice Cooper, David Bowie, Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin....etc. I definitely was influenced by many artist from that era.

    The 70's may have not been up to that measure, but the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, ZZ TOP, REO, Boston, Van Halen, Lynard Skynard, Aerosmith, Doobie Brothers and others are in pretty darn good company when it comes to my generation.
    ........and where is mention of the greatest of all??? Ray Charles....Ray at Newport Jazz Fest is the best album ever....all Google for homework....and his Night time is the right time starts with his intro on the sax!!!

    The only REO speed wagon album that matters is Hi Infidelity when did that come out? Both are known for what they did in the 80s.

    If that's the only you think that matters then you're missing out on a lot of good music. You should look into their 70's releases. Great music. Try 1978s You Can Tune a Piano but Can't Tuna Fish.

    There's great music in every decade since the invention of recorded music. If you want to only listen to music from one decade you are going to miss out.

    Still good rock music made today you just have to go and find it, it is rarely played on FM radio.

    Agree..... great music to be found.
    Favorites to listen to now ..... Gram Parsons (my new discovery of a great musician of 60's ) and Porcupine Tree (a discovery of something more contemporary)

    Everyone, do yourself a favor and buy tickets to Tedeschi Trucks Band concert in February at Heymann Center.

    GREAT guitarist with about 12 person band behind him.

    Yep, he clearly loves the 80's but there was plenty of good music from REO in the 70's.

    Just like in math and physics... the heavy lifting was done in a collapsed time frame in the past. And there you have it with music. Those of us that lived through it aren't special. We just got to experience the greatest evolution of creative music ever. We need to humbly offer this to younger folks. I think they think we think we're special... because "it" was. It shouldn't become a contest. We all need to find ways to offer it to them... without taking credit. I know most of us are that way. But sometimes it looks like we think we're special... because it was... and it drives some young people away from experiencing it.
