Classic Rock 101 – Who Started It ? [VIDEO]

 

Alan Parsons1, YouTube

Initially when the term “classic” rock was used it primarily meant music from the ’70′s on rock stations.

Maybe classic rock stemmed from the ’50′s meaning rock stations started playing rock music from the ’60′s and even back to the ’50′s. I honestly don’t think one could go back any further.

These days you hear grunge, punk even ’80′s hair bands which in some cases is fine except for the previous two. They aren’t classic rock, maybe classic grunge and punk is punk period.

I feel the best definition for the “classic” is that when I listen to it I feel pretty much the same way today as I did when I first heard it meaning my opinion is the same over a long period of time.

There is actually a way to test yourself as what should be classic rock, coming up.
