Classic rock is my passion. I feel confident in my knowledge of classic rock covers and originals, but I still learn something new every day. When it comes to cover songs, we sometimes forget how much rock n roll has borrowed from others. Led Zeppelin is known as “the band that never wrote a bad song,” but they didn’t write them all… in fact, sometimes they gave credit, and sometimes it’s questioned as to whether they should have given, but didn’t.
Everyone knows that Rock N Roll would not exist without The Blues. You are welcome to disagree with that statement, but I would suggest doing some homework first. Most rock artists will list blues artists as their influencers and many rock songs were originally blues songs. And, of course, you’re always welcome to catch up on your Classic Rock News.
The ’70s glam-rock that was HUGE in the UK, didn’t really make its way across the pond until a decade later. but it was a HUGE influence on our American hairbands of the ’80s.
