Official Classic Rock Recommendation Thread *2*

As requested, this recommendation thread will not be for Classic Rock bands, but rather modern bands that are heavily influenced by/sound similar to Classic Rock bands. I'm hesitant to do this, but I think it could be a useful tool in discovering some new bands, so I'll try it and see what happens.

DO NOT JUST RECOMMEND ANY BAND THAT YOU LIKE. This is going to be a touchy subject of who should go here and who should be left off the list, but try and recommend bands that, as I mentioned, sound like they were influenced by or sound similar to Classic Rock bands.

A similar format applies for recommending bands...

Name Of Band:
Year of Debut: The year this band's first album was released
Preferred Albums: Albums you would recommend by this band (3 max, and please stay away from greatest hits)
Sounds Like: If possible, give a few bands (4 max) that you think the band you are recommending sounds closest to. Basically, "if you like _______, _______, and/or ________, then should give (recommended band) a try".


IF YOU DO NOT PUT YOUR RECOMMENDATION IN THIS FORMAT I WILL DISREGARD IT.

This thread is not for conversation, so only post if you have a recommendation or correction (this does not include what albums you think should be listed. If you have a problem with that, PM me).

DO NOT SPAM THIS THREAD. All posts must be on topic and about a band. Do not complement or make fun of others' suggestions. This will only lead to warnings and/or bans.

The format for the list will be as follows:

Year- Band Name *Recommended Album ~ Recommended Album*

Classic rock is a radio station formatting of songs that they play. This trend grew out of AOR (album oriented rock) stations that broadcast album tracks, instead of the more commonly used 45 rpm singles. For more information see here: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-classic-rock-music.htm
