  1. Dream Theatre is classified as Progessive Metal and I'm not into heavy metal, even if it is progressive and one song lasts for 60 minutes. I know this is a hard genre to find current bands in, but I'm sure they're out there somewhere.
  2. So the whole reason I came back to Songfacts is to find a little help with this question. Are there any new bands (or any from the last several years) that play progressive rock similar to what it was like in the 70's (bands like Yes, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, or Genesis)? If so, let me know how I can get a hold of some music to listen to! I'm trying to find some new music to listen to and hopefully catch some concerts for bands that don't have one foot in the grave! As a side note, if anyone knows a good Country Blues band (similar to The Marshall Tucker B
  3. about.com has a section on their website dedicated to classic rock. The only problem with what they have to say is that they are very biased upon popularity and not making decisions according to what music is creative, or influential, or anything that didn't jive well with the corporate world even though it was highly accepted by the general public. They do try to take into account how a group made an impact to the musical scene, but other than that it's pretty much based on popularity. For instance, I feel Jethro Tull should be on that list and bands like ZZ Top and Def Leppard don't belon
  4. Yes, no other bands really mixed Folk and Progressive Rock the way Jethro Tull did.
  5. Actually, if you listen to some of the music from Yes, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, and Genesis, they were all pretty close. Tales from Topographic Oceans and Atom Heart Mother are both along the same lines as Jethro Tull. And how can you deny the Court of the Crimson King?
  6. ... according to about.com 1. The Beatles Essential Album: Revolver With record sales estimated at more than a billion worldwide, no other band had a greater influence on the course of rock music. 2. Pink Floyd Essential Album: Wish You Were Here They had one of the flashiest stage shows of any band, but their music gained its most fame being used in movies. 3. The Who Essential Album: Who's Next One of the first, most successful, and longest lasting "power trios," this group was innovative both musically and technically. 4. Rolling Stones Essential Album: Sticky F
  7. So can anyone tell me who this generation's Jethro Tull is? And I don't mean Jethro Tull of the 80's and 90's. I mean Jethro Tull of the 70's. Anything reminiscent of Thick as a Brick, or Passion Play, or Songs from the Wood.
  8. Here's a big list... Steve Miller Band Doobie Brothers Steppenwolf (John Kay) The Outlaws Lynyrd Skynyrd Blackfoot Charlie Daniels Band ZZ Top Hank Williams Jr Big & Rich Grand Funk Railroad REO Speedwagon Journey Poison John Fogerty The Allman Brothers The Marshall Tucker Band (Doug Gray) Tesla Whitesnake Cheap Trick Cinderella The Guess Who .38 Special Little Feat The Bangles Eminem Xzibit Kid Rock Limp Bizkit Papa Roach Pat Benetar And others that I saw parts of the concert but not the whole thing.
