I love Carol King's music and James Taylor's, too. My brother introduced Cat Stevens to me by giving me Teaser and the Firecat for a birthday present. Later I bought Tea for the Tillerman. He was a genius, and there's not a bad song on either album. My daughters would listen to him alot, too. I bought the cd's and we would sing along to his music on roadtrips. It's hard to pick one, but I think my favorite is "Peace Train".
Hey young man - careful with that aging rocker stuff. I feel younger every year! Hmmm. Maybe I shouldn't have admitted that - could be a sign of the slide into senility.
I had the cassette version of the Led Zeppelin you are talking about. I played so much it wore out. I was the youngest of 7 kids so I listened to my brothers and sisters stuff all the time. My brother had KISS Destroyer and got me hooked on KISS after that. I can remember listening to Fleetwood Macs, Rumors and Kansas' albums, and who could forget Bostons, More Than a Feeling. Listening to eight tracks was fun, click, click, in the middle of a song, or stacking multiple 45 records together, for added playing time. I was inspired by Van Halen and Randy Rhoads to name a few of my guitar hero's. I never really had sports hero's they were guitar players.
T Rex, Rod Stewart, Motown.... But my older brothers were hippies and introduced me to Cream and Led Zep. In my later teens I fell for the Moody Blues and Barclay James Harvest.
I had a huge crush on Cameron Crowe, the Rolling Stone magazine reporter featured in the film Almost Famous. I had a subscription to Rolling Stone, a Rolling Stone sweatshirt.
My brother and other 7th graders in their Catholic school uniforms playing Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Who'll Stop the Rain?"in the school library. I got so tired of that song, but I love the memory.
I can associate with Chicago (Color my World) and Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Billy Joel, But what do we do with Leo Sayer, Bread, and all that "Disco" stuff for music of our "era" The absolute worst I remember from the disco era was the Ethyl Merman Disco Album! What an abomination!
I am listening to the first Led Zeppelin album for the first time in what must be 30 years. Includes Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog and Whn the Levee Breaks. It certainly has stood up to the test of time. What are some of your favorite vintage songs, performer? How old were you when they came out?
And yes, Stairway to Heaven was the theme of one of my proms. I believe that's the year that prom colors were yellow and green -- described by a male classmate as "John Deere colors."
