    2. Led Zeppelin
    3. Black Sabbath
    4. Rainbow
    5. Yes

  • Hey Kimberly, im gonna list which bands releases in the 70's i still listen to the most.

    Deep Purple
    Frank Marino

    i have to say though, i play more 80's than 70's but most of the stuff i listen to these days is from 1990 onwards - although Hughes/Thrall has been getting a lot of play recently thanks to the HT2 announcement

    Question? Has anyone listened to the David Lee Roth Show? I listen to it on podcast and I really enjoy it!

  • I never see anyone mention Bruce Springsteen & the E-street band....:confused:

    His first few albums are ROCK albums with a little bit of funk and soul.
