There are loads of fans on 70s rock on these boards so why don`t this lot have a thread showing them love?

Is it because they didn`t sell zillions of records ?
Is it because they wern`t close personal friends of the Beatles?
Is it because they don`t have a song played every 2 minutes on some 2 bit radio station around the world somewhere?
Is it because they didn`t have a guitarist who always gets voted in 'best guitarist' lists despite not having made any decent records for 30 years?

Like recording 3 albums of sheer beauty isn`t enough these days.

So yeah all you classic rock fans , stop jerking off to stairway to heaven for 5 mins & check out the genius of Alex Chilton for a change.

well i've listened to this band and i think there great. i can really see where alot of the musicans today get some of there great taste, because alot of there songs (that i've heard so far) are wonderful. i see no reason why they couldn't have been just as great or greater then alot of the 70's rock group's. so now after hearing them and saying that i wonder what was wrong with the music industry back then and wrong with the listeners for this band to not be that well known. *nods head in shame*

thank you urban for getting me into them.. without hearing your geat taste in music, i would be worried that my own musical taste would die.

Honestly , the lengths I go to to make sure there`s an active thread on this band on this forum.

Alex Chilton should pay me

are pretty good for a pop band. If there's a thread on them already I couldn't find it.
