I see how there are fourms for classic rock, metal, and such, but you really should consider making one for southern rock.

If this is a suggestion, it goes in the Site Feedback forum. Southern rock is usually classic rock anyways.

There is no need for a forum, most of it goes under classic rock.

EDIT: No need in the sense of not enough demand for a forum.

But it's hayday was in the late 60s and all through the 70s. It's Rock. It's classic. Lots of things go in classic rock that sound different from eachother. Take CCR and Pink Floyd for example. Two totally different bands. Two totally different sounds, but their era falls within the same genre.
