That's a tough question. I'd have to say that before Bonhams death Led Zepplin was a pretty tough live act to follow. Kiss is up near the top of the list for the time frame. But then you need to consider Bad Co., and The Who as well. King of the dance had to be Peter Frampton though. His Frampton comes alive album was a monster. Let's not forget the Eagles - The Long Run was a pretty huge album at the time.

Tougher Time Frame than I thought
Shocked

Right on all counts. HOW ABOUT A LITTLE FOGHAT?? Laughing
Actually...was Aerosmith considered "Arena Rock" in the 70's??

Agree on all counts so far. Gotta admit that KIZZ would be my #1 choice. Was a complete member of the KIZZ army although many others come to mind- Doobies, Boston,Fleetwood Mac,ELO,Eagles. Sweet times for me.

I remember getting into music when I was pretty young, listening to Top 40 radio riding to and from school every day. Saturday and Sunday mornings were reserved for American Bandstand and Casey Kasem's America's Top 40. I bought the 45" of Band on the Run when it came out - the first music I bought with my own money. Now I never pay for music... but I digress. Twisted Evil

The first artists I remember loving was Paul McCartney & Wings, Elton John (his early stuff), Heart, Queen, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, and the Eagles. Then when I entered high school, it was all about Foreigner, Journey, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Ratt, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden and Van Halen, each group releasing a mammoth album that put them over the top. 1976-1982 was an incredible six years for rock, and as happy as remembering those times makes me, I feel an equal amount of frustration that I will never experience a musical era like that ever again. But as long as I have the recordings and boots, that era can live on forever. afro

I'd have to go with Aerosmith and Boston as my favorite '70s bands. Zeppelin was also right there, but wouldn't they have to be considered a '60s band? Same with Deep Purple.

Yes Zeppelin was a 60's band but they put their best music out in the 70's literally paved the way for many rockers.Their music is timeless,go to a rock concert today such as Nickelback,before the concert they are playing Led to the audience before they come out on stage.And what really rocks the crowd is so stoked when Zep's music is playing the crowd are singing the songs and rockin before the concert ever starts.Like I said Timeless.Now let's look at Deep Purple and Uriah Heep now there were some cool bands.And of coarse does anyone remember Traffic?

I forgot 1 band from the 70's that put out probably the most amazing, progressive album of the time frame. ELO. That album (the name escapes me) was so far ahead of it's time it was just sick.

If memory serves, I believe it was "Out of the Blue" or something like that.

Ditto. You guys are too young to remember it, but the only six years that I could compare to those are the ones from 1964 - 1970, but that's for the '60s forum. Wink

Out Of The Blue is a classic double album that is a perfect example of
where my love for symphonic sounds from the 70's comes from.
Other great albums from them were Eldorado, Face The Music,
A New World Record and Discovery.
I was huge into these guys back in the mid 80's Cool

So I guess the old bean isn't as bad as I thought. The album was Out of the Blue. Not too shabby. Welcome to the fray Moon.

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet band I think are a very underrated arena rock act from the era. Of course I didn't get to finally see them in concert until the mid 80's, but the sheer amount of great songs they had was amazing and just a terrific live act at one point.

Not my favorite 70's act, but just one that isn't always brought up in discussion much.

It's a shuddering shame I haven't seen Bob Seger AR, I enjoy much
of his music.
My Mom was a huge fan and used to see him play back in his early days
at the University Of Windsor.

Moon, I got the chance to see Bob Seger twice on the American Storm tour in 1986. Once from the front row. 2 of the best concerts I have ever been to and I have seen just about everyone.

Saw a bootleg from his last outing a year or two ago. Not the same. He's aged a lot and the show wasn't as powerful. Still looked like a decent show though.

That's great to see AR, glad you were there in his earlier days!
I've heard a few of the new songs and I think he sounds good though
I'm sure there is less Fire Down Below where is vocals are concerned.

Never had the opportunity to see Seger but I sure have had many cold drinks listening to him. Fun times indeed.
