The Cars….. Heartbeat City, my best friends girl… etc… ! I can remember rocking out to that cassette like it was yesterday. My brother and I in the back seat of my parents dually towing the boat to the river.

The Eagles always brings me back to floating in the river at sunset. Tequila sunrise in particular.

Heartbeat city here we come (I heard a rumor) Jackie's back in town... One of my favorites...

It's going to take a lotta love: Take your pick Nicolette Larson or Neil Young they both sound great to me...

You've never smoked weed? So I'm guessing you never tried acid/LSD....that shit changed my out look on life.

I want to try LSD. Not street crap, but pharma grade in a controlled environment. I hear it's awesome.

Agreed, Cars were awesome, especially Ben Orr, he was the epitome of cool. Drive is a great song despite Rick and his pedo move. What a dick.

Heck, I remember getting drunk at my first kegger party, a garage band was playing Let the Good Times Roll, over and over.

Most river music for me is late 1960's R&B & Motown Music and then throw in some good Blues, Woodstock sounds.
I grew up listening to Otis Redding , James Brown, The Supremes, Sam & Dave, the Four Tops, The Temptations, Gladys Knight & The Pips , Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye ,The Spinners , The Miracles , The Isley Brothers , Al Green, Smokey Robinson, Wilson Pickett,,,,, I can't remember them all.

As far as bringing back memories . . . my parents and their friends played 8-tracks of Steve Miller and Neil Diamond a lot at Mead / Powell / Havasu / & Shasta when i was really young . . . so they remind me of those places, which puts a smile on my face.

My favorite are ‘Cristal Ship’ and ‘The Unknown Soldier’ by the Doors but my wife’s favorite is ‘One is the Loneliest Number’ by Three Dog Night. We’re talking about the very late 60's of course. You had to be there to understand.

The Rolling Stones

I was a kid, riding.y bike through the high school hallways on a Saturday...

I hear music, so I head that direction...

An older kid is there with the music full blast, by himself...

I asked him what was up, he said his parents wouldn't let him play his music loud, so he brought all his stuff over here to do it. Record player, amp and speakers...

I sat and listened with him to this, full blast...

I graduated high school Class of '79. By that time I was so sick of hearing We Are The Champions and Bohemian Rhapsody at every damn assembly and game I was ready to quit the team. My buddy burned through 3 different Kansas Leftoverture cassettes in those years and I had to stop riding around with him because they got so tired too.
Never was a Zep or Floyd fan really, but I enjoyed most everything you guys have mentioned so far.
But I gotta know, where are all the Purple, Dio, Sabbath, Rainbow fans? At that time Deep Purple held the World Record for loudest concert. Dio and Rob Halford were on a whole 'nother level of vocal ability, and when they came out, the crowd knew they just owned the stage.
But one of my absolute favorite bands was Black Oak Arkansas. David Lee Roth clearly stole his whole act from Jim Dandy. Tommy Aldridge went on to play in many top rock bands. Shawn Lane was the fastest fingered guitar played for decades, and they had the street cred. Too poor to buy equipment so they stole the local high school's PA system. Now that is ROCK!

Right here on Sabbath! My 18-year old daughter, too. But the daughter doesn't like Dio w/Sabbath or Ozzy on his own, WTH? In fact we're going to see Mac Sabbath in November. Yeah, look them up, lol

That's messed up. She ain't right. Every single track on Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules is the stuff of legend. Seek help for that young lady ASAP.

Bad Religion and Pennywise.

Really don't hear them on the radio (you gotta go looking) but I was working on a job site couple months back. some older guy had bad Religion blasting. I was singing along and my even older crew member remarked "you know the words to this garbage? I'd be embarrassed!" I go yep, and your the people they're singing about. Haha

Dio, Sabbath, and Blackmore fan here. Cool how Ronnie James Dio had a role in all 3. Big Judas Priest and Iron Maiden fan. Really like the Paul Di'anno Iron Maiden. Little to heavy to play all day at the river except for Rocka Rolla and a lot of people don't even realize what Rocka Rolla is.
Saw Motorhead, Heaven and Hell, and Judas Priest at Glen Helen I wanna say in 2009. By far the best concert I ever been to. Saw Iron Maiden at Irvine Meadows and that was bad ass.

The first that popped into my head was Creedence, then 3 Dog Night, then The Doors.

Agreed, John Fogerty is a great musician. My pops died when I was 19, and just this morning my uncle told me to come pick up my pops record collection. "Are his Creedence records in there?" I asked. Yup he said. Can't wait, as a small child I remembered listening to Creedence, and Herb Alpert!

Rush, Fly by Night.
That was the first "rock" concert I had ever attended in 1975.

@C-2 We saw John Fogerty at Soboba a looong time ago. He was the first artist I ever heard ask/tell people to put down the phones, stop living life thru a viewfinder, and to enjoy the evening the old fashioned way.
I hate his politics, but he continues to produce good stuff.

When The Grand Illusion came out I'd get off work, kick back (with an ice cold Lowenbrau or two or three etc.) and listen to this album and wonder what kind of man I'll become...

Going to the river younger my uncle and dad would put on the soundtrack "Good Morning Vietnam". Still put that sound track on when talking about the river. We heard it so much my brothers and I can basically recite all of Robin Williams parts between the songs.
