    I didn’t like the cover of the Zeppelin crashing and burning on that first Led Zeppelin album so I never listened to it. I’m just not into that type of thing... Who spells lead like that? So unrealistic.

    I love your list. I can clearly see the influences. Great compilation. Missing for me would be stranglehold, chuck berry, and more Clapton. I really enjoyed your list.

    The fall of the Berlin Wall, The Gulf War and all these albums in 91 and hip hop and we all recorded mix tapes from the radio on blank cassettes than LA Riots. That small three or four year era from 89 to 92 was interesting

    Snarky Puppy, Okvsho, Igorrr, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Tool, Meshuggah, Woongi, Leprous (especially the older stuff), etc. smaller and bigger bands - they're not dead, they're just not mainstream anymore (most of them). They've moved to USlikes and Bandcamp and elsewhere since the radio is what it is. But why is modern radio the way it is? Maybe people nowadays don't invest their brain cells to listening to music; instead they want relaxation, and simple music. Maybe people of today are overwhelmed by the amount of "stuff" so they want simple entertainment as a counterbalance

    In the Fall of '91, I saw Candlebox, The 4 Horsemen, Alice N Chains, Stu Hamm & Michael Bruce Band in Phoenix during their 1st South by Southwest Showcase. The 4 Horsemen & Candlebox were heads & shoulders above everyone. In spring of '91 the record company stopped all support for the 4 Horsemen. These Guys were IT! I saw their last show in Houston at Backstage. They were the Raw Emotion of what a Real Rock Band Should Be...

    I remember that I had a very loud stereo that fall, and the GnR UYI I&II blasted alot. And then a couple of months later, around christmas, on a road trip for a ski camp somebody had the Nirvana casette, and that was my introduction to that. It was a time with some great music, for sure

    plugin versions of amps, is making those tones accessible to people like me, who literally live in an appartment that have a bedroom that is literally 4m x 3m (im not exaggerating, i measured it) and not only do i not have money to buy vox ac30, or a fender amp or whatever which i really want, but i still wanna record music without annoying my neighbors or even practice, so plugins being accessible, kempers, although i didnt really look up on the topic, i know that its a midway of amps and plugins, not fully digital, and not fully amps, and i feel like the next thing for kempers, is to get it implemented digitally or maybe get the technology to work more intuitively and not make it so hard and time consuming to let it work the way it should, amps will never die, but you cant say that everyone likes to take their expensive heavy amps, to shows, and to studios every week, its just inconvenient.

    As I'm playing catch-up with your "What Makes this Song Great" videos, the sheer sophistication of this Rush song (melodic, harmonic, rhythmic) makes me wonder - why the hell would I be willing to dumb down and listen to contemporary pop songs with 4 chords and a drummer in a can? We grew up with the very best, most amazing music possible. I refuse to apologize for keeping my musical standards high. It's one thing to sell crap pop to 14 year olds, but where the heck is the awesome stuff for mature people who like great new music? (OK, there's some out there, but it's definitely not mainstream)

    I was 20 that year. I remember being stuck in the 80s with more new age and people like Enya or Clannad and Tangerine Dream. Resistant to what I called heavy metal I refused to give any other genre a chance. Not wanting to venture out from my comfort zone until I went to a lazer show in NYC back in 93' that showcased that music. Wow was I blown away. Couldn't avoid it anymore and went on a spree of collecting the 'alternative' music. I started collecting albums from Silver Chair to Seven Mary Three, to Bush, Soundgarden, (accidentally purchased Savage Garden album I was ordering so fast without even paying attention) . Had all the Stone Temple Pilots and Alice in Chains plus the Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins albums. Bought them all. You name it... Metallica, Our Lady Peace, Sevendust, Atreyu, Korn, Type O Negative, Red Hot Chilly Peppers. (a lot of these bands aren't considered 'alternative' but I mention them anyway) I was covering the more popular songs of these bands in the South West region of Virginia in the late 90's to early 2000's. I was hooked and still hooked to this day. What happened? Why did such a great thing die. The movie 'This is 40' kind of touched on the death of alternative rock and it depressed me.

    Use Your Illusion 1 and 2 are terrible, awful records. Guns and Roses died as soon as Izzy left. Someone said at the time that they’d turned from being the Sex Pistols into the Rolling Stones, and I thought it was bang on the money. All the others in that group are brilliant.

    We have a 99x here in East Texas also. The difference is it plays only classic rock that was a hit. They only play 2 or 3 songs from maybe a hundred bands, of course y'all already know which ones. The same songs they played 20 years ago. Plus every commercial is cashing in on the covid19 "we're in this together" line.

  73. Elizabeth Hazel

    Rick, honey, if you're a 1962 baby, you're NOT a Boomer - you're part of Generation Jones. It gets overlooked but it is a distinct and unique demographic generation (1958 to maybe 1972) followed by Gen X. I think the phrase you were hunting for is "Perfection is the hobgoblin of small minds," chopped down from Ralph Waldo Emerson's "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds." As you pointed out, contemporary pop is harmonically bland and over-produced. A listener can't tell if a singer can actually singer or not! Having studied Wiki's "Top Selling Female Artists" list, I decided the denizens of the list are split between top selling "performers" who rely a lot of choreography, catchy hooks and canned studio noise, versus "chanteuses", women who can actually SING and don't need to pimp lame-ass hooks in scanty clothing. Don't get me wrong, I like Rihanna and Taylor Swift well enough, but can they actually SING? Don't know, can't tell. And do their production companies actually let them choose repertoire that showcases their talent, or are the songs that get produced solely and entirely dedicated to what will turn a buck? I'm sure you know more about that than I do, but the range of singers' repertoires seems to be skinnier than a tobacco lobbyists conscience these days.

    It would be interesting to hear your opinion on why you think that the songs that have nothing special to them still make it to the charts. I so agree on nr.5, not interesting arrangement and the composition is poor, still nr.5....why? is it money behind the artist or charm/persona?
