Hey guys, i'm a 14 yr old kid, i don't really like today's modern music scene but i love classic rock acts like Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, etc.

I want to get into some more "deep cuts" than just them, so could you guys reccomend me some good classic rock bands and some notable songs to listen to from them? Cheers

Quicksilver Messenger Service. If you don't listen to the 13th Floor Elevators, thats a given to check out. Dig the Faces and the Small Faces as well. oh! can't ****ing forget the MC5!

Some albums for starters. I try & avoid watered down greatest hits packages...

Pink Floyd's Piper At the Gates of Dawn
Quicksilver Messenger Service's Happy Trails
Amon Duul II's Yeti
13th Floor Elevator's Easter Everywhere
Love's Forever Changes
The Mothers of Invention's Freak Out
Neil Young's Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

That's just some basic stuff other than albums by the aforementioned Stones, etc.
The idea that media is there to educate us, or to inform us, is ridiculous because that's about tenth or eleventh on their list...

Blind Faith- made up of Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and i don't remember the base player. They only did one album but it was really good.

Then Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits- this does a good job introducing you to the music if you aren't already familiar with it.

The Who's Tommy and Whos Next are great choices as well. Along with the other responses this should hold you over.

Thanks for the fast replys, is there a program i can use that will download the entire album? So i don't have to pick off songs from bands one by one?
