I have seen how my son and his friends in there 30's have always followed the late 60's to 1980 music. The music of this time was insane to our generation. I think we do not realize how good it really was. I now have 2 employee's in there early 20's. What do they listen to all day??? The same!!

They ask me all the time what it was like to see the Who? What was It like to see the ABB? Rolling Stones?

Well we have had a wonderful musical experience if you are 50 to 70 years old.
The Grammy presentation to the ABB brought tears to my eyes. It really showed this band has evolved to stay alive in the music industry. Constantly changing in the 70's to keep the sound alive. Even with so many deaths the music still survived.

I think now in my golden years how lucky I was to have seen and heard what I have.
Cheers my friends!!!

I'm 26 and I listen to mostly old music to. My parents turned me onto music such as ABB, Rolling Stones, Clapton, SRV, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Ted Nugent, Van Halen, BB King, Grand Funk Railroad, The Who, etc. I do like some newer music including Adele, Rival Sons, Kings Of Leon, 3 Doors Down, Black Stone Cherry, Derek Trucks, etc.

A lot of those bands/artists you mentions have an older style to them. That's amusing. I'm only 42, but my Mom had Beatles, Stones and my fave in her collection: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. they all shaped the music I would eventually love, even some of her real early Neil Diamond albums.

Sadly, my daughter is a fool for hip-hop. I tried, I really tried. I took her to see Tom Petty, KISS (which she loved), and The ABB. Damned hip-hop.

Great thread! I, too was worried that my sons would never stop listening to rap/hip hop and come over to the light - LOL. One is 30, the other is 23 and they both have now seen the ABB and many blues artists. They both love "Classic Rock" and also some newer music. It does my heart good. My younger son has lamented many times that all the good bands happened during my youth and not his.

I have a t-shirt that says "I may be old, but I got to see all the really cool bands". I am in that 50 -70 year old range that Warjag mentioned. Others in that age range who see my T-shirt simply smile and nod.

I like music from the 60s-70s but I like music from before that time period and after that time period. To me it doesnt matter when it came out just as long as it sounds good to me

,No doubt LOL I get my first SS check this year and i am forever gratefull that I got to see all the great guitarists live and all the great bands like the Yardbirds ,Cream, Canned heat,Deep Purple,GFR,Hendrix, Sabbath,Uriah Heep,Led Zep, Bad Company, The Who,and of course the ABB... and the list is longer than I can remember but the music of our generation will never been seen again... we were indeed very lucky, the music of today sounds canned and to techy and to regimented ... and I have yet to hear a modern group I like there are singers, and there are a few guitarists but no groups...

I think most of us in the same age range pretty much did and listened to the same stuff. Now that I'm older (55) and have earned every grey hair on my head, I like my music on the easier side. Thanks to the Grammy's, I'm now a huge fan of the Civil Wars...but I'll still crank the brothers now 'n' then, just to keep the juices flowing.

cool thread.

My son is 16 and his favorites are The Who, Zeppelin, Hendrix, The Doors, The ABB and The Stones. I picked up the re-issue of Exile on Main Street last year and he listens to it more than I do. When he's over, i try to introduce him to new stuff, he started to like ZZ Top and of course, Skynyrd.

I'm young enough that I didn't see most of these either, at least the original lineups. It's why I think we shouldn't be so hard on the Stones....they're still out there and my son will be able to see legends if they tour again.

Most of these were already "classic rock" when I cut my musical teeth, I remember when Bonham died, and Moon and Lennon. Some day we're going to start losing what's left of the ABB Core Four and it's going to be sad.

You raised him right Gregallmanfan!! My parents liked The Beatles & Elvis. I am the hugh Beatles fan in the family, and my sister's favorite is Elvis. In 1971, I spent 10 days in the children's ward at New York Hospital when they first found my diabetes. A social worker use to come in the evening & take us kids up to the roof garden to play board games, do arts & crafts. etc. He had an 8-track tape player and had two tapes, something by Bread and Who's Next. I was 11 years old at the time and a Who fan for life.

My kids love music...one plays,sings and loves Levon and my older guy has turned me on to music I love and vice versa....

Some of my greatest memories include seeing The Gregg Allman Tour,Leon Russell in '73,Dylan/Band in '74,Neil Young and CSNY in '74,Grateful Dead in '73,ABB/MTB in one to one concert in '74,Paul McCartney in the early 2000's,ABB Beacon shows in the 90's,Grateful Dead in '84,EC throughout the drunken,but bluesy seventies,Dylan on Rolling Thunder Tour and every other time he played,Garcia on Broadway,Garcia in college in the mid seventies,Dead at Radio City,1983 ARMS concert,'76 seeing Neil Young @ the Beacon,Muddy,James Cotton,Johnny Winter @ the Beacon in '77,and the numerous shows up in Woodstock since the mid 70's to today with Levon Helm's Rambles.

One great memory was a pool party in the early 80's....about 200 people hanging by the pool adjacent to bar/food,a hoops court,lounge chairs,an entire day of non stop music with the finale being a group playing a great long set well into the night....they were: Levon,Rick Danko,Max Weinberg,Dr.John,Jim Weider,and many more...I still recall sunset with Levon's voice and Rick's harmonies wailing and echoing off the mountains....or the time Muddy came to town,to the village green...we went up there to see him get the key to the town with all the local musicians gathered,in awe,to honor him....

To be exposed to these artists and many more was a special treat that happily repeated itself through the years...those artists who remain continue to give great joy...so do those who are gone through their recordings.I'm leaving out so many artists and special moments...it all began with Simom and Garfunkel,Mamas and Papas,Beatles and Stones in the early 60's and keeps on giving so much to my life.....

My daughter,23 won a beer at the local pub the other night. Midnight Rider on the jute box, old dude next to her said "bet you don't know who sings this song".

Looked at him, said obviously you never met my Dad.

Allman Brothers, she got a beer!!!
