    I have not reached this category yet but my shonky knees make me feel that 2 legs are almost in there. Retirement agers, God waiting room candidates can honestly boast having seen Reggie Gasiner at his best (and maybe even Donald Bradman, Mohammed Ali and Rocky Marciano). Plus the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix, The Doors, the Kinks - all at their peaks. We can also curse the Monkees and Perry Como as being totally useless.

    Head up to the Shannon for some medicinal relief !



  • Piss off, nothing wrong with Perry Como.



  • While the monkeys were awful, (my sister was a fan). Mike Nesmith wrote some pretty witty stuff.



  • kinks, stones and hendrix were good but you can keep the beatles and the doors. None came close to MOI.

    The Doors were brilliant as were the Kinks , Stones , JHE and The Beatles

    Oh, there they go! There they go! Every time I start talking about boxing, a white man gotta pull Rocky Marciano outta their ass! That’s they one! That’s they one! Rocky Marciano! Rocky Marciano! Lemme tell you something once and for all! Rocky Marciano was good, but compared to Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano ain’t shit!



  • And how about Greatful Dead, Janis Joplin, 10 yrs after (Alwin Lee), Allman Bros Band, Taste (Rory Gallagher), Free (Paul Rogers), Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green), Little Feat (Lowell George), Grand Funk, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Mayall, Joni Mirtchell, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Small Faces, Vanilla Fudge, King Crimson, Johnny Winter, Mountain (Leslie West), MC 5, Chicago, Blood, Sweat and Tears, The Band (R Robertosn/L Helm) etc.
    And re boxing how about Gene Tunnay - a few decades before, but still one of my all tme favorites
    And basketball players like Bill Russell & Wilt Chamberlain?



  • It’s funny, as I’ve grown older, my taste in music has gone further back in time.

    I was born in the 70’s, and loved a lot of the current stuff I saw on Countdown as a kid.

    In my teen years, I was listening to some 80’s music, but started listening more to 60’s music.

    In my 30’s I was listening to more 50’s music. Now I’m even listening to music from the 20’s to 40’s.

    I feel like a musical version of Benjamin Button…

    Captain Beefheart anyone? If you don’t know it, treat yourself to the Safe as Milk album.



  • My favourite era for music is the 60s and 70s i am surprised nobody mentioned Pink Floyd,The Who,Led Zeppelin,The Animals,Jethro Tull,Santana,Uriah Heep going further back Bessie Smith and Edith Piaf.Look at the rubbish that gets airplay these days.



  • Howlin Wolf, Skip James

    How could I forget The Who o & Uriah Heep (Gypsy Queen) (calcified memory :slight_smile: )
    Also Steppenwolf were big at that time, and a few lesser known Groundhogs (w ex-Mayall guitarist Tony McPhee) and Skid Row, both on the ‘progresive rock’ side.
