Fifty years of classic rock classics

If you’re from my generation, classic rock is probably your go-to genre of music. Yeah, you may try to pretend that you’re cool and hip enough to love newer types of music, but we always seem to come back to the songs and records that we loved when we were young.

1970 was a big year in the world of classic rock. It was six years after the British Invasion and only a short time into the singer-songwriter era. Some musicians were taking a final stand, while others were making an early statement that would thrust them into the musical mainstream.

Fifty years is a long time for music to hold up and still be relevant. Here are some tunes and albums from that year that are still considered classic.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
