During the 1970s, some of the most iconic rock bands in history were formed and embraced by households around the world. People had posters, tee-shirts, bumper stickers, and trapper keepers showing their favorite band’s logo or art.
Why was this era of music so good? Classic rock music during this time combined drums, bass, guitars, vocals, and included riffs, ballads, and guitar solos. Music back then was authentic. There was no autotune and technology did not allow a large manipulation in the production of the music. The music was original. It was raw. You could be rocking your face off in one moment, then hearing the same band play a love ballad in the next.
Classic rock bands in the 70s and 80s truly knew how to put on an unforgettable live performance. People flocked to stadiums, festivals, and intimate shows. Many people found “their” band and devoted their lives to following them around the country mirroring the band’s tour schedule.
Though this music culture has changed over the years, the music from the bands in this era has stood the test of time to this day.
