    Let's show the kids some great music from the old days

    "Vehicle" was one of the hippest tunes back in the day. Horn bands - BS&T, Lighthouse, Chicago and Tower of Power seemed like rock and R & B supercharged to the next level. I burst out laughing when the camera pans the crowd. All of us hippies now fat, grey and bald!

    1971. Yes for Yesfans

    Over 40 years ago and these guys were already creating and playing some of the most sophisticated music in rock and roll history. And Kiss beats them into the Hall of Fame (insert guffaw here)?

    Boy George in 2013... almost didnt recognize

    Culture Club was apparently a band with one strong musician (guitar player?), a talented and flamboyant singer playing to a time when young listeners always obsessed with culture over musicianship. Pretty much describes every generation doesn't it? The truly talented musicians transcend these...

    Albums That Tanked/Crashed/Burned That You Still Like

    Wishbone Ash IV Eagles Desperado I must admit a real soft spot for Rory Blocks "Intoxication So Bitter Sweet" (1977). A disco era release before her mad acoustic guitar skillz - showcasing some wicked R and B vocals. I think she has completely disowned it.

    Kansas Bassist new album.. awesome!!!

    Over the top vocals?

    I think it depends on the musical style and the chops of the singers. BB King in his prime (Live at the Regal) and anything by Howlin Wolf are examples of very effective emotive "punches" vocally. And lets not forget the granddaddy of them all - Screamin Jay Hawkins!

    Which vocalists banter the best?

    7 pages and only one mention of Peter Wolf. It does not get any better than the banter on J Geils Full House. "Take out your false teeth Mama, I wanna suck on your gums!"

    Music artists that were once hated or disliked

    Without a doubt, KISS. This band was absolutely a joke musically and despised by every "head" that grew up with the honest virtuosity of the likes of Led Zep, Deep Purple, Tull, Yes, etc. I am amazed by their popularity now.:huh
