    I was born in 1987 and am a big fan of late 60s to late 70s rock..

    I wanted to start a thread dedicated to bands that have late 70s style rock.. (This band is 70s style rock)

    I'll start with this band "Earl Greyhound" and their song "Shotgun"..

    Enjoy... And post music of bands similar to this!! :rock: I love it!!

    No offense, but that explains it.




    1970s???

    Again, no offense, but that "band" and their "song" are strictly 21st Century.





    THIS is more like it...

    Wasn't the late 1970s the disco era? :shocked: :alex:

    You know that's what okie was grooving on. :supergrin:

    It was also the era of the Fender Rhodes piano, replacing the '60s staple Hammond B3.

    Deep Purple and Foghat kinda epitomize 70's rock for me.
    Nugent. The Faces. The Allman Brothers Band and the Stones did most of their best work in this decade.

    I remember being a kid then, and in my neighborhood if some big kid came up to you and said "Do you like Disco or Rock" , if you said Disco, you would get sucker punched.

    <---------Wore t-shirt that said "Disco sucks" in the late 70's.

    Did not punch kids.

    Edit: There isn't a lot of music made after 74 that I ever listen to anymore. A little, but not a lot.

    I think Bushy was Jim Henson's&#65279; inspiration for Animal!

    If, by "70's style rock" you mean "mid-90's style alternative rock while wearing 70's hippie clothes" you might be onto something.:rofl:

    Here's some real 70's rock:
    Children of the Revolution

    Or this: Bad Motor Scooter

    The most "70's sounding" current band I can think of is Jet.

    That's funny, you said replacing. Substituting maybe.

    For me, nothing sounds better than a B3 with Leslies. :thumbsup:
    But, I suggest that the Rhodes sound was everywhere in the 1970s and along with the over-done synthesizer somewhat defined the genre.

    Perhaps one other aspect that was notable was that the 2 minute, 30 second AM Top Forty hit, verse-chorus-verse-chorus-reprise formula gave way to longer, more complex songs.

    70s had some awesome music and some awful music. I don't put all disco in the awful category either. I was 20 something and in college. If you wanted to take a college girl out where I was the evening better include some time at the one and only local disco. I can't dance worth a hoot but I found out most girls didn't mind and a little sweaty exercise admiring each other's bodies frequently led to more sweaty exercise enjoying each other's bodies.

    Me too. And FWIW, I don't mind the Rhodes sound. It certainly had it's place. Even a staunch B3 player like Gregg Allman used a Rhodes- on Statesboro Blues no less!

    The best 70's rock that I know of was/is from the 70's. No need to search out new stuff it will never be the same. Enjoy the classics and leave the "discovery" of new music to black turtleneck wearing SWPL's (now that they are done with OWS they have more free time on their hands).
