Greatest Rock Bands of the '70sisoldmysoulforrocknroll
The Contenders: Page 6
Great band, but I respectfully believe they don't belong on this list, more of an "alternative" band than Rock and Roll, but definitely amazing musicians.
Amazing music. Everyone has to listen to them
Rock... I doubt! The 70's even more...
Excellent live band with brilliant musicians. Steve Lukather best guitarist in the world. Top 10 rock band on the planet.
One of the best front men in rock
I admit not everyone's cup of tea but one of the most entertaining bands I ever saw. Their Christmas shows in Glasgow were legendary.
A great band for the 70's. Saw them many times live and really enjoyed themV 2 Comments
Can't you see... Whipping Post... Strong, strong songs.
Southern rock is missed this group was great
Loved listening to my album back in the day
Most of our generation thrashed this as we did Pink FloydV 1 Comment
Smooth harmonies from these soft rockers. - FMFDoc
Styx along with Supertramp are both worthy of top 25 spots. Look at the great albums they put out. Some of the bands ranked ahead are one or two hit wonders. I love Def Leppard but they weren't big until the 80s.
Styx has some very HARD roots in Rock and Roll. Just take a quick listen to Styx I, II and Serpent Rising will prove it. It was carried thru into Equinox and Crystal Ball but DD's relenting and unwavering influence turned the bands direction toward pop and more mellow "top 40" stuff which is were the "underrated" title began. The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight Tour has done a lot to show the band in its best light as they continue to pack venues all over the states and around the world! ROCK ON STYX!
Wow, some of you must have lived in a different 70's or perhaps you were not growing up in the 70's. Styx was and is a "top 10" 70's rock band by all means. Too many albums that were all time best!
They're so underrated. - hypeV 6 Comments
John Kay's music is relevant today. Listen to Monster.
What nobody remembers them? That's insane
What a shame so many great bands are missing. Kansas, Caravan, 10cc, ABBA to name a few
