I don`t have a preference to any era , even though some people on here might say otherwise There`s always been good & bad music ,I hate this assumtion that seems to crop up that bands like Queen & Led Zeppelin are better than anything thats around now.

I experiment all the time. You never know what might be pleasing to your ear, until you listen to it. It took me a long time to realize that. I only started exploring out of sheer boredom with classic rock.

Most recently, I have been listening to a lot of the women crooners. Etta James, Eva Cassidy, Billie Holiday, and especially Dinah Washington. Wow. Her voice is a wonderful instrument. Too many singers today beat you over the head with their voice, on every song. They only know one way to sing. But these aforementioned women all knew their voice, and how to command it.

60's-80's some 90's but i dislike 90% of new stuff, older music was the best and most talented.

I think...think that it may be due to back then it was easy for those bands to be big. For example before Led Zeppelin came along many bands wore standard clothes or a set piece that all members wore when they played live. When Zeppelin came along they took society by suprise, all dressed up in their peace necklaces and flares, people didn't know what to think. Some were angry it wasn't formal, others were loving the "crazyness" of it all, and I think this was a sort of propultion behind the bands stardom, that their style was so extreme and it became a craze. Take nothing away from Zeppelin, they still did the business well, but it would have been easy to be a major hit when their were so many stereotypes of how society should be and Zeppelin came along and tore it to pieces.

Nowadays it's hard to hit that sort of niche. Everything has been done before, and so all we are left with is the music. The music itself is good, most of it is better than the 70's stuff as you hint at, Urban. But there is not a lot to spark a band to fame like there was back then, so it's a pretty big free for all these days and the public doesn't seem to think anything of it.
