You were late discovering The Doors. Jim Morrison died in 1971. Most of their stuff was 60s. I have to say, I was never a big fan of theirs. I found their music a bit drab and dreary.

I completely agree. Also, I MUCH prefer the early Queen catalogue - I and II especially, as well as Smile stuff.

I was lucky enough to see Steve Vai twice in the late '80's when he was with DLR. Passion and Warfare is the best, I think.

Stuart - "Cars" was `1st released in 1979 but re-released in 1987 so you're OK with it.

I found most of the chart music from the 70's quite naff.

I did like 'Trees', 'Credence Clearwater Revival', 'The Eagles' and a few others.

This a goody from the 70's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUTKMrO1hhw

Good grief, almost forgot to add Zeplin.

Ugh..."playing the guitar like a machine gun"  Frank Zappa (Vai's former boss)

Being able to type 100 words a minute doesn't mean you're an author...

He's a great transcriptionist though.
