I'm offically a Queen addict...and I'm proud to admit that...lol...

True Story:

I was once a sad victim of today's endless beat of bootie music, watered down American Idol pop w/recycled beats, etc...But now, I finally caught the Queen train w/you guy, and I am happy to be a
passenger!


But I want to start listening to more classic rock!


I've heard of Led Zeppelin, Cream, Pink Floyd, The Who, The Eagles (dont know any songs by them) Jimi Hendrix, The Stones (I have mixed feelings about them, heard good and bad stuff)Aerosmith, etc...but I'd like to start listening to more classic rock, etc...


I wanted to know what kinda music do you listen to (other than Queen) and why do you like it so much, and how has it effected you, what do you suggest that I listen to?





Loving the pass, cherishing the present, and looking forward to the future

Whatever you do, don't listen to bands named after a place or who have a spaceship on the cover.

I would say if you like a lot of the early Queen stuff you might also like some of the prog rock of that time as well. Particularly the group, Yes. "Fragile" might be the best album to start with. It really is one of my all-time favorite records. Yes did a lot of great vocal harmony stuff and had some really compelling arrangements and performances on record. You also might enjoy (and a very "might" at that) some of the stuff Rush did in the 70's and even early 80's. I went through a period during my teens where I though Rush was one of the best things ever...and while I'm glad I got over that thought, I still think they were a great band. Anything between Fly By Night and Moving Pictures might be a good place to start. Though probably not Hemispheres. For most the singing in Rush is an aquired tastes

I really would highly recommend Yes, Fragile though. That's such a great record. If you like it then maybe move on to "The Yes Album". What an amazing group they were.

and definitely as someone already mentioned get yourself some Hendrix. Probably "Axis, Bold as Love" or "Are You Experienced" would be a good place to start

hope that helps

This radio plays classic rock, blues, and all kind of rock...

I hear you all talking about bands like Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and all those good bands, but you're forgetting one of the greatest bands in the land:

Rush.

*cue Tom Sawyer*

Spanning a career of over 30 years, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart have helped revolutionize rock music in the 1970's, with hard-hitting hits such as "Working Man", "Anthem", "Freewill", and "2112". And that's just the 1970's.

Geddy's shrieking vocals and mastering of the bass guitar catapulted the band way over the top, along with Alex's ravaging riffs and mesmerizing work, and not to mention Neil's immaculate drum solos (i recommend you listen to them, they are freakin' outrageous!)

They are still performing to this day. Their latest concert, R30 (a performance in Germany during their 30th Anniversary Tour) is amazing, and I highly recommend it for anyone who is remotely interested in this awesome Canadian band.

So, before you put on Led Zeppelin IV, or rev up your Bad Company vinyl, remember the name:

Rush.


We can only grow the way the wind blows

On a bare and weathered shore

We can only bow to the here and now

In our elemental war

- Rush, "The Way The Wind Blows"

I never liked Rush that much because the singer sounds like the witch villain from a Disney cartoon.

Jethro Tull- Aqualung. That was my last purchase.

Mott The Hoople- All the Young Dudes. Queen connection and a great album in its own right.

Moody Blues. Now there's something deep. In Search of the Lost Chord, or Days of Future Passed.

Zeppelin is a safe bet, but I have grown tired of there stuff after about a year of heavy rotation.

hey start listening to David Bowie! he rocks like ultimately like just so much like!!! ;D

Start with the albums Diamond Dogs, Ziggy Stardust and Hunky Dory. :)

Stones are great, I actually used to have mixed feelings for them as well (don't tell anyone) but I was just being young and naive. Buy 40 Licks and you'll be convinced! they're hot.

Try The Beatles, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Rainbow, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrex (I'm listening to Jimi's collection right now).
Oh and dont forget to listen to Muse!! They rock, seriously they do.
