  1. A-Ha is my favorite act of the 80's, but alas, you're right. They are not rock.

  3. I wish I could get into his music.
  4. Is he using a certain kit, drumming a certain way or did they put reverb on his drum tracks.
  5. I heard the track. Yes, there are similarities for sure, but being inspired by something is not the same as copying it.
  6. All of them excellent. Most best drummers list put Peart, Bonham and Moon in the top 3. Neil Peart is probably the best drummer from a technical standpoint. He's very calculative, methodical, precise and technical in his drumming. John Bonham, however, probably has the best sense of rhythm of any drummer. His drums come in hard and crashing, with a sense of heft that no other drummer can seem to emulate. Keith Moon was just the animal, the id, total chaos, and he tried to be as unique and off beat as he could, while raging at certain moments. Moon's one of the best drummers of all time, but compared to the other two, if you take out showmanship, I don't think he's as good as the other two.
  7. They're almost always mentioned in the top 2 or 3. Jimi Hendrix was incredibly talented. Has a blues/jazz/improv way of playing that was very akin to the black artists of the 30's-50's. He was just really soulful and poetic with the guitar. But unfortunately, he died way too young, and I don't think his catalogue matches up with Page's for that reason alone. Page proved to be far more versatile and wide-reaching with the kind of music he'd play, between loud, soft, soothing, aggressive, he mastered just about every angle of guitaring.

  9. I think most of us can agree that they had 6 stellar albums and then the started to fall off in their last three. What I'm doing in this hypothetical is assuming that instead of releasing 3 albums, they just saved up their best tracks into 1 album, (then the junk can be released as a bonus in a box set or something). Heavens From The Earth (1982) Achilles Last Stand For Your Life Nobody's Fault But Mine In The Evening Fool In The Rain All of My Love I'm Gonna Crawl I Can't Quit You Baby
  10. Yes. It's best for an artist with such a legacy to retire in its prime. Their final 3 albums were of mixed results. And the death of Bonham pretty much settled it.
  11. Bob Dylan isn't just an artist of a generation. He's the artist of a lifetime.
  12. David Bowie's legacy is profound. The man was always consistent, constantly changed and evolved his look/sound to push music in a new direction and rarely if ever faltered. 40 years into his career, he released an album that was every bit as great as his earlier material. Think about this for a second. Can any other musician claim these levels of accomplishment? Zeppelin and Beatles got inertia after 10 years. Most classic artists retire into performing their old material or they just release lots of really similar works that lack the impact of their earlier works. Bowie, on his death bed, cranked out one of the very best albums of this emerging decade and sent shockwaves throughout the industry.
  13. Always loved their material. Them coming back together 40 years later and releasing "13" (one of their best albums) was totally unexpected.
  14. Rolling Stones were really prolific. Probably 60-70% of their songs were forgettable, but they've amassed at least 40 great songs by persistence, which is nonetheless an accomplishment. Their 2 90's albums had some very nice tracks on it, they should have quit after that though.
  15. Just gonna leave this gem here.
  16. Geddy Lee is an amazing bassist, but only an average vocalist. Neil Peart was an absolute beast (top 3 drummer of all time material). Lifeson is a great guitarist too. I love the rebellious experimental sci-fi type of sound they have. If Rush could've had a 4th member who could really sing, they'd probably be on par with The Who and such.
  17. One of my favorite bands of all time. Jim, of course, was a great poet, intelligent, pretentious, loveable, drunk, chaotic, ego maniac. Their songs had an atmospheric poetry to them which made them unique from any other band, and even at their tail end, they tapped into a really good bluesy sound. Also, Ray Manzarek, playing keys and bass at the same time, cannot be understated. He was every bit as important as Jim.
  18. I never said they were better than Ann Wilson. I don't think there's a single female [rock] singer who could compete with her. Also, I need to get Nancy Wilson to marry me. <3
  19. Nirvana was one of the great modern rock bands. They smashed the mainstream at record levels with Nevermind, but totally challenged their fanbase with their final release In Utero. There's just nothing like Kurt's wailing vocals. It's a real shame Kurt Cobain was in such poor health. If he had lived, they could have released 3 or 4 more classic albums and maybe could have been top 10 of all time material.
  20. Paul McCartney is one of the best songwriters. Great at coming up with melodies. He's talented at a number of instruments from bass, to guitar, to drums, to piano and. He's a strong lyricist, has great concepts in mind and while his vocals aren't amazing from a technical perspective, he can hit the notes he needs to. He's a jack of all trades, and may be the most well rounded musician of all time. He generally has made safe marketable songs, but on occasion he has made really progressive songs like Eleanor Rigby, Hey Jude and Helter Skelter.
  21. Underrated Female Rock Bands: Epicea, Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation, Hydrogyn, Doro, Nightwish. Will also 2nd Ann Wilson, Joan Jett, and Stevie Nicks. I also love Courtney Love's filthy vocals.
  22. Clapton is all around amazing. One of the best guitarist, has a great ear for melody and has always been a fantastic song writer.
  23. Pink Floyd was a very progressive band. They excelled with making conceptual songs/albums, very atmospheric abstract-ish material. Their stuff has been beautiful, bizarre, comical and haunting in equal parts. I admire both their talent and the tenacity they had to be different than most mainstream bands.
  24. John Lennon was one of the best songwriters in history. He didn't have Page's guitar skills or Plant's pipes, but he was more than just a musician. He was the head, the cerebral force and the essential lyricist amongst The Beatles. He was a visionary who constantly pushed forward progressive music, spearheading the industry's most popular trends and challenging it at the same time. He was full of many different ideas and concepts. Almost no two songs were the same. He was able to churn out radio-friendly hits, experimental psychadelic songs and abrasive punchy songs in equal parts. He's what you get if you combined Bob Dylan and Chuck Berry. No one has been able to put out songs like "Imagine" and "Give Peace A Chance", which became secondary anthems and sent shockwaves throughout the world.
