    Of those who are still playing at this moment (1 am) I would vote for Earth Wind and Fire. Those guys can still bring it.

    I say, THE F***ING RAMONES!!

    So much great music from that horrible but awesome decade, impossible to choose an objective best.

    RJ where were you in 1977 when such classics such as LEAVE HOME, NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS, MARQUEE MOON, BLANK GENERATION, RAW POWER, BLACK SABBATH VOL 4, THE CLASH S/T, RADIO ETHOPIA, ROCK N ROLL ANIMAL, BIG STAR #1 RECORD and ZIGGY STARDUST were all the rage?! Margueritaville?

    Im no punk elitist, I love me some Zeppelin, Floyd, Fleetwood and Bruce (especially Bruce) too! But I have to say I freaking HATE Peter Frampton, more than the Bee Gees who you can at least dance too. Please dont tell me you like Frampton.

    I dont really like the Doobies either but I guess "listen to the music" is a classic. They are very RJ.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I tend to lean more towards Chicago, Tower of Power, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, and the big band types of the era. A little soul, a little funk, a whole lot of sound.
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    Yes - Michael McDonald came on the scene and ruined the Doobies.

    I prefer Stillwater.

    The iconic band of the 70's would be the Eagles. My favorites would be Cheap Trick, Styx and of course the Ramones. For Midwestern rock-Bob Seger out of Michigan.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    If I ever get out of here, that's where I'm going to.

    I was going to put Fleetwood Mac, but forgot to. The Chain is one of the defining songs of the era. Seger is a midwestern thing. You know, fly over county.

    Pardon me while I park this here:

    Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
