    What'z Up!?

    Am I the only classic rock connoisseur?

    Oh, and please, don't post any sh** records like Michael Jackson's Thriller. I know it topped the charts but get real. Post real music. :angry:

    Thank you. :flowers: :D

    Come on, Thriller is a damn fine album. Jackson lost it eventually, but before he went insane he was a huge talent. Sad case.

    If nothing else, surely you can appreciate Eddie Van Halen's guitar solo?

    Edward sold himself out. The solo was incredible, no doubt but come on. That's likely when he decided that Dave's JD wasn't strong enough for him. Either that or they paid him the really big bucks.

    Randy Rhodes, in my view, (in that era) was the better of the two.

    R.I.P. Randy (and Stevie while I'm typing).

    I want to see who the true rockers (and I am a self-proclaimed guru) in BAR are.

    Peace.

    IMO The group Van Halen was way better with Sammy as a front man.
    Randy Rhodes was awesome, however there is so little of his work recorded, it's hard to put him in front of Eddie

    I'll give Michael Jackson credit. His early albums were pretty good, but I wouldn't classify those albums as albums of Rock n Roll. They're more like Pop or Pop-Rock.
    Picking the three best Rock albums is to hard for me. I have way to many favorites to just pick three. But if I had to pick I would go with:

    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin (the first album, what is considered Led Zeppelin I)
    Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
    U2 - The Joshua Tree

    I saw Van Halen live in 1984 with Diamond Dave on the helm. What freaking show. In another concert, the opening act was the Red Rocker cranking the stage. Both Dave and Sammy did a great front man act. I give the edge to Dave because he seemed more natural and much funnier at the same time - don't forget his jumps from the drum kit platform! :lol:

    Might as well JUMP!

    As far as Led Zeppelin's first album, don't write anything (forget the Roman numeral): Just write "Led Zeppelin." When you say the name of the record, then say "Led Zeppelin 'One'."

    Human Clay is possibly the best Rock n Roll album of the 20th Century.

    Sparkchaser, I have that Gorky Park LP! I haven't had a turntable in years so it's been awhile since I've heard it.

    Bootsy's great - loved him in Weapon of Choice.

    Menudo is the best rock band ever.
