How well put-the 80's really was diverse-some of the worst and some of the best in Music,TV, movies, all of culture. The 70's are the most interesting to me though-you definetely have the Best in the early/mid 70's=Yes,Genesis,ELP,(early)Elton John,James Taylor,CCN&Y,Rush,UFO,Frampton(comes alive),Grand Funk,Triumph,(early)Scorpions,Michael Schenker,(early)Chicago,Al Dimeola,Gentle Giant,Peter Gabriel,(early)Journey),early Judas Priest,Roxy Music,King Crimson,etc.,etc. And then there's the worst=All Disco, All BeeGees, Rolling Stones,Springsteen,(most)Billy Joel,Bob Seger,(most)Aerosmith,later Elton John,later Frampton,Boston, Foreigner,later Journey,Kiss,AC/DC, most all of the Hair Bands that started in the 70's, later Judas Priest,Kenny Rogers,etc.,etc. Nitice how many bands and artists I seemed to love at the beginning of the 70's and hated at the end of the 70's and later!
