Ok, so what makes 70s rock exactly? Sure they didn't have these high-tech amps that we have, active pickups, and these new fangled bridges, so what makes 70s rock, 70s rock? Just curious, plus, my wifes parents are having an oldies/70s movie party, and they wanted me to write my own 70s rock-ish song.
What are you talking about? There was a wide variety of rock in the 70's. You had hard rock, prog, fusion, punk, and new wave. I'm assuming you mean hard rock, nothing more than overdriven tube power.

I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.
It isn't 70's rock unless it was made sometime in the 70's.....
Tonight, we stagger out from the basement...

I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.

The typical 70s sound is crunchy riffs with wailing solos and sexual lyrics. Think Zeppelin, AC/DC, Bad Company, etc...

The 70s were dominated by Disco though.
