I'm 16, but I got into classic rock when I was 14, I like all the classic, it was the innotive and original rock that stabilised todays rock. I do think some of todays rock is good, but mainly bands that have evolved from previous 90 artists e.g:

Nirvana >>> Foo Fighters

Guns N' Roses >> Velvet Revolver

etc....

I'm 16, and Classic Rock is my favourite genre. I grew up listening to Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and lots of old punk, because thats what my mum listened too. I got into The Doors when I was about 7, but I've only been seriously listening to CR out of my own choice for about 2 years.

i'm 19 years old. i've been through a lot of stages of music but i'm glad i'm now obsessed with classic rock/blues. i don't listen to anything else. the first band that opened the doors to classic rock was led zeppelin and deep purple i suppose, that's quite a long time ago. favorite bands are now: led zeppelin, beatles, cream, the who,...

I'm 14. I didn't really start getting into Classic Rock that much until last year, but damn, I'm so glad I did. Now when I look back at the music I used to listen to, I call myself a fag.

I'm 14 and I've been listening to CR since I can remember. I was always into rock but by the time I was about 9 I sorta strayed away into Rap (please don't flame me) but then I saw the light again, and when I was 10 I got into my mom's old vinyl. She's 51 and she still knows how to Rock 'N' Roll!!! I came home one day from school and heard the radio blasting with Comfortably Numb playing! The first vinyl album I listened to was Queen II (my avatar). I'll be a proud CR listener until I bloody well die!!!

I'm 16, and i've been playing guitar since i was 10, I play anything that comes to me and sounds good. Coincidentally that happens to be classic rock about 70% of the time. I love classic rock such the Yard Birds, Pixies, G&R you know the bands...

thats not to say that some music today isn't good. Mind you most of it might not be as complex, its still good to listen to. Just think of the Beatles, none of their stuff was hard...

I still listen to the modern punk rock and Indie scene, i find that stuff grand for the most part!

Personal favs are The Get Up Kids (indie) Story of the Year(punk-rock) and Big wreck/ Thornley (rock)

I got into clasic rock on an 8 hour car ridewhen I was 12 and haven't looked back. Jimmy Page was 90% of my influence to start playing guitar. There would be no metal or any of that if not for classic rock.

I'm 17, makes me feel kind of old being on these forums, now that I think about it. The majority of what I listen to these days is classic rock, but I certainly have not listened to solely classic rock the whole time I have been into music. I used to listen to a lot of punk, and metal. These days I will still listen to a lil' bit of Maiden, Megadeth, or Opeth, along with many many other metal bands, but I mainly keep it to classic rock now. I think that this is the one genre of music that if people get into, they will never stop listening to it.

15; I've always liked the Beatles and stuff, and my dad's a huge music freak and stuff.

Slowly in middle school I'd listen to some classic rock and liked what I heard. The thing that really got me was, sadly... School of Rock.

I'm 15-20. Kids todays, don't like Classic rock, because its for old people. Yet it could rip apart any RnB crap, lyrically, technically and instrumentally, no matter what its age.

I think AC/DC, maybe just pure curiosity brought me to Classic Rock. I wanted some new music and i decided to check out some older bands, i realised they were good and carried on listening. Either that or TnT off THPS 4. Such an awesome game.

I'm 18 and I'm really getting deeper into it the more I play guitar.

But I literally grew up with classic rock, mother always listening to it in car rides and I never really knew the bands...I do remember hearing Clapton's 'Wonderful Tonight' and 'The Joker' by Steve Miller Band. I still remember car rides just sitting there watching mom sing and me "try" haha....but later AC/DC is what got me going into classic rock, around 14 yrs old

Thats as far as my knowledge of Clapton goes.

I saw the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show and was hooked on Rock and Roll ... bought my first album in a grocery store shortly thereafter, it was Beatlemania (a cover band that I thought was the real thing)

I've been around now for 4 decades plus 3 yrs, so work that one out!

I grew up in the Classic Rock era so for me it's my music and whenever I hear a song or album from that time, it often brings back many great memories.

16. Classic Rock pisses me off now. Mostly because of the connect the dots scenario where whenever I hear anything Classic Rock oriented, I automatically think of some n00b elitist on this forum.

16, I used to listen to a lot of classic rock, now I'm mostly listening to metal. Classic rock was just my jumping pad into good music because when I first started playing guitar I knew nothing of good guitarists, and classic rock was where the "great" guitarists were so I went there and for a while was a classic rock junkie....I really don't listen to much classic rock anymore to be quite honest. Now, it's mostly metal, or modern prog stuff that I'm quickly getting into (eg. Porcupine Tree).

I'm 15 and i've been listening to the beatles ever since i was 8 years old and i've been listening to classic rock overall since i was 11 or 12.

i got into the beatles by one of my friends. his favorite band was the beatles and he would bring a bunch of their albums on the bus and he would let me listen to them. i've been hooked on them ever since.

After listening to Credence Clearwater Revival, and then buying The Who "Who's Next," I was like, "sh*t, this stuff is amazing! How could I have possibly listened to bands like Smash Mouth before?"

Then I bought Guns N' Roses "Use Your Illusion II, Live In Tokyo" and it blew me away. Slash's new band is pretty poor. Without the singer it would be an OK band, but with Scott Weiland it almost sounds like Nirvana.


I think classic rock has alot to do with the singer; no one in rock bands can sing these days.
I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer. The future's uncertain and the end is always near.

I get flamed by some of my classmates for liking bands like Queen, or Glam Rock altogether, and they say real men listen to "gangsta rap"... you know what I tell them? I tell them real men listen to Rock, with roaring guitars, pounding drums, thumping bass, and screeching vocals! I also tell them real men aren't afraid to sing using falsetto, wear leotards, or wear make-up

real men are never afraid!
