    Otis Redding singing "Try a Little Tenderness" during a tour of Norway in 1967. A giant talent whom we lost much too soon.

    This is a fine track from the Los Angeles group Spirit.



    Bits of it seem familiar somehow. I can't quite put my finger on it.

    Speaking of familiar...I give you the first song I bought on iTunes:



    Coming from the same country that gave us Justin Bieber... The Guess Who started in the late 50's under the name "The Silvertones". But it wasn't until the early 60's when Randy Bachman & Fred Turner (who both later formed Bachman-Turner Overdrive) that the group flourished. These two songs are separate tracks but almost always combined when played, this was do to both songs deemed too short. Bachman wrote "No Sugar Tonight" while bandmate Burton Cummings wrote "New Mother Nature", both were written in F# and blended easily. Another fun fact was that RCA Victor made them add the lines "in my coffee" and "in my tea" because it was thought the lyrics were too sexual.

    Now as far as the "familiar" part...take a listen to Pearl Jam's "Daughter".

    Deep Purple (w/ David Coverdale & Glenn Hughes), rockin' under a rainbow in Cali! I grew up with the Gillan/Glover version of the band, and have only in the past couple of years been delving into this stuff:

    Just like everyone (or most) on here, I'm old enough to remember the joys of vinyl. Not to mention the sometimes genius packaging that said vinyl was sometimes nestled in. This is something that neither the CD or digital age of music has remotely come close to.

    My personal favourite memory was when my Dad bought the ELO album 'Out Of The Blue' in 1977. I was only a few years old at the time and the music on it was way beyond me.

    The front cover was this awesome gatefold featuring an orbiting spaceship. Early copies also contained a aerial model of this. It was based on this picture:



    My Dad suspended the model of this from my bedroom ceiling. Cool.

    They say 85% of rock songs use the same four chords and one of ten chord progressions...obviously some bands do it much better!

    Tommy Bolin. You might want to look into his time in the band.

    This is one of my favorite movies. Directed by Todd Haynes, it's a tribute to the glam scene of the 70's as well as a coming of age story. A reporter investigates the disappearance of a rock star loosely based on David Bowie and explores the rock star's relationship with another musician who's a mash up of Iggy Pop and Lou Reed. I guess chunks of the script were inspired by a book written by Bowie's first wife, so he refused to let his music be used in the film.

    Speaking of Bowie, I grew up with 80's Bowie but I kinda prefer some of his 70's hits. The rumor I heard was that Life On Mars came about because Bowie's manager thought he should do an English language version of some old French pop song. David took a pass thinking it wouldn't be a hit. Then Neil Sedaka bought the rights to that very song, re-worked it some and it became the huge hit My Way. Bowie then wrote Life On Mars using a similar arrangement.

    I was always aware of Priest. British Steel and Screaming For Vengeance were big hits when I was younger. However, I never actually sat down and tried to honestly listen to them until years later. I still think they don't get their due from more mainstream rock critics.
