Graduated in 1977. Rock music really became an industry in the 1970s. That helped fuel a lot of creativity that built on the basic materials of the 1950s and 1960s. It was just the right time for creative bands like Electric Light Orchestra, Queen, Genesis, Todd Rundgren, Roxy Music, and others just before punk, new wave, disco, and the synthesized dance beat of the 1980s took things in a different direction. It was also the decade when all of the ex-Beatles made music. Elton John was well known for his singles in the 70s, but the deep cuts on his albums are just as impressive.RadioKev wrote: ↑Wed Nov 21, 2018 5:36 pmI’ve always believed and maybe because it’s my growing up years but the 70’s were the greatest decade for music but than again that my opinion ,I’m not saying 60’s were bad they were great and I love the New Wave 80’s as well I remember listening to WLBS 102.7 during the New Wave craze and to New Music WABX all around ‘82 and’83 great stuff .Also enjoyed Early 90’s when 89X started the New Music format around 1991 that was all great radio.
But I've discovered in the last 10 years that the greatest pop music of all time might have been made by Frank Sinatra on Capitol Records in the 1950s and early 1960s. The range of styles he took on was breathtaking.
