Nov-17-2008, 11:01
Im born in 1963 an listened to all those legendary rock band of that time.The list is endless ;Deep Purple,Rainbow,CCR,Status Quo,ADDC,Slade,Queen,Nazareth...
These bands and many more made superb music with great guitar solos.
No such music are made today and I wonder why. Isnt todays musicians good enough ? Or does not good bands come through the needle eye because hip hop and rap crap music is taking too much space??

hello gjedda63.

well... frankly, i don't know where to start. i don't like sounding harsh or agressive, i've always liked charing ideas and cultures. but i had to notice the "hip hop and rap crap music" part of your post. that makes me feel sorry because i love deep purple, i like rainbow, i find status quo nice to hear, and night at the opera by queen is one of the best albums i ever heard. i love jimmy page's work with led zeppelin. i love guitar, i play guitar myself. therefore i like a good solo from time to time. but music is not to be only what you like. and as an amateur of what i consider good hip-hop music (because there is some hip-hop that is real crap to my ears, exactly as some rock albums do), i can't accept you stating that this genre of music is merely crap.

shall i suggest that you get informed, by surfing the web, or going to record shops, sor even go to pubs where people perform, so that you can find what you're looking for?

There are some good new bands out there. I'm really into this at the moment. New band from London called Spiritwo.

If you are talking about great bands you have to mention The Doors, Pink Floyd and Cream to mention just a few.

I like this thread and it is a good one.

I think the problem is that simply there is less money to be had in rock and roll, compared with the 70's when Led Zep and others where racking it in. Why spend time trying to build up a band's name when 1. it is even harder that ever to break in and 2. there is less to go around..........

Plus the old foggies wont die ie rolling stones and a cast of other assorted thousands!

Cool looking forward to it- cigars we will wait and see- I like my temptations & indulgences

“It's not that you should never love something so much that it can control you.
It's that you need to love something that much so you can never be controlled."

You never know- I'm currently putting some more music together - I live to refer to it as either WUFM (wife unfriendly music) or MOMD (music of mass destruction!)

You know, I said the same thing in the sixties when referring to the jazz bands of the 30s, 40s & 50s.

Sorry to hear that you have been so unwell John. Was it a plant that did it or toxins in the ground. Trust you will feel better soon.

"temptations & indulgences",
So I took off with the Speedos, no socks or long pants, and took a big hit.

So long as you don't take of your speedos................
