Writer's Block: A Profound Impact

Who has had a profound musical impact?

1. pink floyd- comfortably numb
2. patti smith- pissing in a river
3. tom petty- i wont bak down
4. neil young- old man
5. fleetwood mac dreams
6. the doors- people are strange
7. the beatles- hey jude
8. the police- message in a bottle
9. billy joel- uptown girl
10. bob dylan- hurricane
11. rollig stones- paint it black
12. james taylor- fire and rain
13. the moody blues- knights in white satin
14. cream- sunshine of your love
15. grateful dead- touch of grey

yeah, i know i've put some of these songs up before. Music has had a serious impact on my life. all kinds of music... but it was classic rock that really got me first. i still have the letters my cousin Jaime used to write me from California and she told me about this great band Pink Floyd that i had to hear. They were "way old" but "still awesome". She told me i had to get The Wall. I went to the store the next day and got the tape. I stole it, which i probably shouldn't have done, but that album has since made one of the hugest impacts on my life.
i know i'm leaving out some great people, but these ones came to mind first.

Musically, what is "classic" for you?

My first vinyl album that wasn't children's nursery rhymes or one of those read along books with record was Suzi Quatro. I loved her .. loved loved loved her.
She toured Australia late last year - I saw her being interviewed on tv - she is amazing.

you're not old... but you are older than me. i was born in 78. i bet my aunt martha (my youngest aunt) knows suzi quatro. i think i have heard the name now that i think about it, but i've never heard these songs. she's not bad. i could definitely see why you would have thought she was awesome. As an adult, hearing her for the first time i think she was far more talented than most of today's pop stars although i probably wouldn't go out and buy her music. but i liked these videos. they're so 70's. hee. like here... this isa pretty much what i remember from the 70's... FAME
