I understand you completely. If I was forced to listen to them as a kid, I'd probably hate them too. However, I've never been forced to listen to them...But I had (and still have) to endure crap like this:




So BCR don't sound that bad to me, compared to this... Still, I'm not a fan of theirs either. Very Happy

As Metal-On-Metal said earlier, it's much easier to find music these days... And there's still a lot of good stuff coming out, just not in the mainstream... Which pretty much sucked ever since grunge died off.

Where a lot of people slip up with the 70's which was probably the best era, the majority of the bigger bands stemmed from the late 60's, and some before then where their roots came from.
I suppose the godfather of rock bands and earliest was the Yardbirds who in the early 60s took music to a different level, and the mid 60's bought about Cream and Jimi, who notched up a level.
So what happened during the 70s all came about from the 60's with many of the bands that are legends today.
If you check albums out it was 69 and 70 when the big breakthrough started, though a few were already established before then 68/69 and had big followings already established.
You got the Glam Rock, Thrash metal, Punk, and the famous Brit new wave of metal as it was called back then with Maiden etc, so all in all a good decade for rock music. All contributing to Progressive Rock.

Rollers. not what I'd call a rock band, anyway do recall just before they went megapop, they played our city on a Friday night, and was too popular and stayed over and did the Saturday night to.
The only other bands to do the same were Suzi Quatro and The Sweet, Friday and stopover.
Sweet were like 2 sounds, Glam Rock and metal..many of their single B sides where good solid rock, even their live gigs, saw them once and numbers they did between their hits were a bit too heavy for the kids watching and had some good guitar breaks..lol   although thinking about it, Oasis may have done 2 nights running to.

I discovered heavy metal in 1980 so the '70s were a much more pop orientated time for me







Then my rebellious streak kicked in!

I love the 70s, most of my favourite bands did their best stuff in the 70s. I discovered so much great stuff from that decade later on but this was got me going in my very early years

A good pointer at gigs in the early 70's was, if there wasnt a support band on first the main group usually did 2 sets, some playing over 2 hours. some right through, e.g. ELP.. split their gig into 3 you could say, with album tracks, Pictures in full, then 3 more tracks always finishing with Knife Edge.
You always got your moneys worth.

When i first started attending club gigs around 1987, many punk and metal bands kept that tradition, doing 2 sets, especially splitting it for a matinee/afternoon all-ages show, and then later with a night time/ drinking show.

My favorite aspect of the 70's rock scene was seeing multiple bands in a football stadium or on speedway grounds. My first ever concert was California Jam in 1974. ELP, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Black Oak Arkansas, Eagles, Seals n Crofts, and I think Earth, Wind, and Fire. The one that sucked was we were on our way up to Oakland to see Zeppelin, Derringer, and Priest in 1977 and the van broke down. My older brother was like no big deal, we can go see Zeppelin next week in L.A. Then one of Plant's kid died and the Oakland gig was the last show they ever played in the USA.

whoahh!! that is probably one of the suckiest things ever! Bummer.
In 1980, when Bonham died, ONE guy in my elementary school was really pissed off. he said he ordered a ticket or was planning to, and to bus travel to NY state (maybe to Buffalo?) to see them.

I was just a child still and only knew maybe a couple songs of theirs at that time like "Fool In The Rain", so it didn't mean that much, compared to when John Lennon died.

I grew up in the 70's and to me my favorite decade of music. To me it defined how music evolved the 60's basically started it but the 70's defined it. While I love all the commercial bands mentioned above there are so many more that never got heard.
I've been going back finding lost gems Stepson, Hustler, A Foot In Cold Water, Bastard, Target, Locust......and many more. There are so many bands from the 70's. I do a radio show called The 70's Flashback Show which showcases many bands from the 70's and I include a lot of bands from the 60's as well.
