How about Roy Orbison. One of the greatest voices in music history.

I might be a tad younger than some here (am mid 40’s) and got into 60’s and 70’s music well after it was released.

One of my favourite gigs was the first ever big day out, where nirvana were the 3rd act on the main stage.

After they absolutely killed it I got to watch the 2 headliners, Yothu Yindi & the violent femmes

My other fav was the big day out where headliners included Iggy Pop, the ramones and urge overkill. Did the driving dash to watch that in both Sydney & Melbourne

Absolutely. Didn't Elvis say he had the best voice in music?

Great voice but I found his music tame compared to rockers like Kinks, Beatles, Animals. He did one politically-inclined song Working For the Man, may have even been anti-Jewish.

Janis Joplin would knock Roy out for a six any day

1992? I remember seeing the Ramones at the Sydney BDO. It was just Joey and Johnny from the original band by then.

How is Working for the Man political or antisemitic? Seriously it's a bit early to be getting on the gear...

Spot on bro - started snorting already. Got Roy's Working for the Man mistaken for Cat Stevens Matthew and Son. They both mention slaving away for little pay.

here shows the Matthew/Jewish connection https://www.genealogy.com/forum/surname ... hews/6388/

Excellent songwriter/singer "Running Scared" was my favourite song of his.He lived a tragic life and it showed in his music

Very sad. He was tough though, he kept going on.

Nearly time for an 80's-90's thread.

Music died after that pretty much apart from a handful of exceptions. Feel sorry for kids nowadays being force-fed computerised, mostly talentless tripe.

For the most part i agree. Kids these days dont know what they are missing out on. So much of the modern music simply has no beat.

You wait and wait and wait for the beat to drop or the temp to change but nothing errr.

That said there is some good stuff around, its just harder to find.
Its an opinion!

There is lots of good music around some of it borrows from the old - Greta Van Fleet have some great riffs and the singer sounds like Page. Muse, Killers, queens of the Stone Age, two pieces like royal blood, polish club and black pistol fire. Also heard a song the other day from a band called magpie salute called omission, great riffs

Sure the 60's and 70 were great they were truely pioneers, Aussie rock was outstanding in the 70 and 80, grung with bands like nirvana, pearl jam, soundgarden, Alice in chains and so on.

Music evolves and revolves but there is always a room for more.
