ok, I was born in 66 and didn't know there was such a thing as FM radio until 1979 the first band I heard were stoner kids playing Skynyrd, the first song I heard on the radio was ELO ("Telephone Line"), the first concert I ever saw was Talas (Billy Sheehan's band), then I got into Van Halen and saw the 1984 tour, and from there, Zappa at the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh so I basically missed the 70's. by the time I was listening to music, Zeppelin was almost entirely off the radio and one of the things I totally missed was the whole "Clapton is God" thing what was that about? why was a British single-note blues nerd like Clapton so highly regarded? I mean, I get the Stones. but Cream? all that blowing and frantic drumming? what was that all about?
