I can honestly name only one artist consistently played on classic rock radio that hasn't been ruined in any way for me. Bob Dylan. Most likely because all the stoner kids ignore him, his originality, while overrated among the world of 'Rolling Stone', I've always found underrated in the world of independent music. Lot's of things the Velvet Underground supposovely pinoneered, speak-singing, edgy dystopic lyrics, were done by Dylan years before.
I agree. Classic rock radio = lazy radio for lazy listeners.

I entirely agree with you on your thoughts on Dylan speak-singing preceding The Velvet Underground. Listen to Run Run Run for example and it could be a Dylan song.

Top thread.
