In honor of the country thread that has descended a few pages back, how about a rock/metal thread? No hipster skinny jeans wearing, the caged elephants stuff either. I'm talking about music by men, for men; the music our mothers warned us about. The music that makes you want to run the streets at night or punch people in the face. :biggrin: I'll start off... can't go wrong with snaggle tooth.


It'd be a shame if I didn't post Ronnie in the first post either... R.I.P.

Ok, don't let this thing die!

Funny how societies taste of music changes, and how we interpret the genre.

What passes for country now, would have been "rock" 40 years or more in the past. I picked up a CD by "The Byrds" in the 7 dollar bin at Wallys the other day. Considered "rock" in their day, it sounds more country, than country has sounded for some years now.

And 'Mumford and Sons", sounds a whole lot like Dylan.

Starting in the late 1960s--some groups like The Byrds, The Band--even Rick Nelson started experimenting with fusing Rock with contemporary Country of the era. That beginning eventually led to the Eagles and other like minded musical groups. Some musicians were looking for a way to break away from the Psychedelic rock of the late 1960s. They succeeded very well.

I started out listening to these bands:




About that time these guys started flooding the US with their music:



I still feel that Ronny James Dio is one of the most talented singers ever:

I think the best voices of the 80's was Don Dokken and Geoff Tate. Ronnie was not bad but he did not have the vocals these two did.
