Not sure if I put this in the right place. Can someone recommend me some early rock 60s 70s. I've been listening to 80s metal all my life. I need a change. Any help would be appreciated.

Ziggy era Bowie would be a good addition as well, very influencial on the British 80s metal scene and if you can get into Bowie through the more accessible Ziggy era albums there's a massive catalogue of diverse and fascinating music to explore.

A good starting point would be the Ziggy Stardust The Motion Picture album - live, great cross section of material with several songs exceeding the studio versions in their turbo charged live form, Ronson is on fire and the whole band on top form.

I watch that movie every couple of months. Mick was awesome, Bowie should never have moved on from him. Another great Bowie track is Andy Warhol, the acoustic riff is so heavy, add some gain and it would sit well with any metal album.

Such a great moment in time, fantastic show/movie. Ronson's solo on Hang on to Yourself is worth the price of admission. Too bad the mix sounds so awful.

I agree with all of the aforementioned, but would like to add The Blue Cheer. If you like it loud, there you go.

Any "Classic Rock" radio station will provide the core of 60s/70s rock.
(it will also provide a lot of 80s and 90s hits, too, now)
