So @ work, I live the cube life and yesterday, my neighbor was talking

Shit about music.

Ignorant dismissive nonsense about music - from someone who likes Florida Georgia Line?

Yeah. That bothers me.

Anyway the quote that got me stewing was "70s music sucked, it was all awful" He is - of course - WRONG.

Hell he'd have been wrong if he drooled out this string of gibberish words about ANY 10 year period of music.

But the 70s? There were timeless master pieces released in every genre, although Funk and Disco seem to be the most talked about.

So excuse me as I soothe my butthurt with some examples of classic 70s music

Of course R&B/Disco/Funk was a huge part of that decade. So I'll start there.

This Commodores cut is amazing


In the 70s Jazz infused pop and rock songs and even had an occasional turn on broadcast radio




Perhaps no one blended popular music with Jazz and Rock elements as well as Steely Dan



Although bands such Hiroshima and Weather Report pushed at the boundaries of Jazz and Popular music too.



Country music was getting sick of sequins formulaic writing and slick production.

And the people who led that insurrection were longtime stars and songwriters based in Texas





And Rock and Roll exploded into a dozens of areas ands styles. The decade that started with the Beatles saying goodbye


Ended with the Talking Heads playing Life During Wartime


And in between all of that, there were the Stones releasing classics, Led Zeppelin being Led Zeppelin and a 7 year golden age of Southern Rock.

But the band that defined what a 70 Rock Band was? That would be Aerosmith


It's easy now to forget how great they were then. Because they buried their gems under a pile of "Crying Amazing Baby"nonsense in the 2000s. But oh my word they were a rampaging beast of a hard rock band in the 70s

Today, a great Guitarist lost in the sands of time. Jesse Johnson

Played for the Time. (Cut 'em Jesse)


Went solo and his dance songs had some success in the 80s and early 90s


And if you like straight heavy ass guitar rock, he put out a classic Album in 1996 called "Bare My Naked Soul". It should be a classic

Holy Hell - Give it up for the Sousaphone player on this cut - Kenneth Bentley

Folks, I'm on a Brass against kick lately, and I have been a Tool fan for 20 + years.

But replacing a convoluted bass part with a damn Sousaphone and baritone sax is ballsy - And the Sousaphone kills
