Therefore, more than half of the 70s US rock bands sucked.

It's the Successful Backwards Principle. You take any band that was on top in their day and hate their guts. Take any band no one ever heard before and love them to death. See if you were a success like The Beatles or Led Zeppelin then you are plain horrible. You tricked a whole generation into believing your music was good and the hipsters are not going to take it any more. Grand Funk Rail Railroad or ELP were highly successful, so by decree of those who subscribe to the Successful Backwards Principle they suck. It has nothing to do with music in any objective way. It's about disregarding past opinions. Elvis was one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. No one will mention him. Take a singer who can't sing a lick and people trip over themselves saying how great he is. If you don't learn what is up is down and what is left is right you will always be confused about what direction hipsters are going.
... and that is why GFR sucks.

Actually I think GFR was okay. Their earlier material is pretty good and Closer To Home is a classic. Later on, after Locomotion (which I actually like), they got a little too bubble-gummy for want of a better word.

And I'll say it, Nea, Elvis was a damn good rocker until the movies ruined him.

Brilliant. Have this printed on a t-shirt and send it to Frowny. I'll pay the shipping charges.

Hell, I'll pay for the shirt too.

If you think that I don't like Zeppelin or The Beatles or consider the popularity of an artist to be relevant to their quality, you should save your money for reading classes.
