Songs of Rock: These aren't your grandpa's music

Motorhead's Ace of Spades - energy is a word.

Led Zeppelin's Dazed and Confused - John Bonham, as usual, does righteous justice to the skins.

Led doing Whole Lotta Love (just pictures) - blues-inspired (I wanna be your backdoor man), uses echo as a precursor to the main vocal (way down inside, woman), just fucking drives in parts. Shake for me girl!!!

Rush's YYZ live - named for the call letters of Toronto's airport, I like the framework of this as it shows off Alex Lifeson guitar work and Neil Peart on the skins. Geddy Lee on the bass is pretty tight too. As an added bonus: The Rhythm Method - Drum Solo is tacked on to the end of YYZ.

Kiss's Detriot Rock City live: Always a classic. Sound is a little rough. And no makeup...ah, what a tragedy.

The Who's Baba O'Riley live. This song has been inserted into movies and commercials galore. (And a House episode.) This coming from a band that was often overlooked because of the Stones and Beatles, except by those who knew music. Keith Moon was sorely missed after 1978. John Entwistle death was sad, but not too soon. Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey still are doing it though.

I wish I could go on, but the Library is closing!!!! Later !
