    My main genre I’m passionate about is 60’s/70’s/80’s rock. I also love outlaw style country, Jam music and metal (maiden, Metallica’s first 5, Tool, Sabbath). I need upbeat, sometimes aggressive, great musicianship.

    Seems the “classic rock band” has gone by the wayside. Thank god Neil Young is still around.

    Eh. Tough times for a rock fan. Only relatively new band I thoroughly enjoy is Royal Blood. They are interesting imo.

    Not new and definitely not easily accessible but if you stick with it you will be rewarded with the choicest aged wine on the planet.

    The Grateful Dead.

    The Tea Party. They got pretty big outside of Canada but were yuge up here.

    Jeff Martin is a modern day Jim Morrison.

    I disagree. Sure rock is no longer prominent on the radio, but there are thousands of outstanding rock bands these days. I find someone new to listen to almost on a daily basis.

    Spotify. Just start listening to radio channels of bands you like, and branch out from there.

    The Record Company is a newish band with an older rock sound.





    Also, based on what you're into if you're not an Umphrey's McGee fan, you should be

    I'm assuming you've heard of Greta Van Fleet



    Can't go wrong with the Foo (Fighters).
