Tell me, what’s that man moving cross the stage?
It looks a lot like the one used by Jimmy Page.
It’s like a relic from a different age,alex neil and geddy

From the Paul McCartney and Wings album Venus and Mars

1970’s

During the 1970’s I was blessed enough to see any number of bands who have either a) turned out to be world renowned artists, b) had a second shot at fame with these early days looked back upon with a certain kind of reverence by newer fans or c) ceased to be.

Rush falls into the a) column, Aerosmith into the b) and, tragically, Queen into c).

It was a time of musical discovery; a time to see what was what and who was who as it were. Every generation grows up revering the bands that first introduced them to a certain form of music. I count myself blessed to have grown up with bands like Aerosmith, Queen, Rush, The Rolling Stones et al; bands I might add that kids from future generations have embraced.

Shit, they must have been doing something right.

I suppose I don’t need to mention Genesis, Max Webster, Thin Lizzy, the classic line up of Styx, Emerson, Lake and Palmer… well, need I go on?

So check out, if you dare, all the concerts that, for me, the 70’s had to offer.
