    Its semantics, but forgotten has several definitinons. I dont think most of us have a Billboard database at the ready in our brain.

    I worked in record stores for most of the 80's. I finally got out of it in 1992.

    So please pardon me if i act like a person with a billboard chart indelibly imprinted on my brain.

    For many years it was my job to read those charts and decide how many copies to order for the store in each format, ie, cassette, LP, and CD.

    I never made it to regional manager, but by 1999, the record store business was in a terminal tailspin from which it would never recover.

    Idaknow. I think popular music is the only exception to this. Zeppelin sound-a-likes never sounded like Zeppelin by not hearing them before. And Zeppelin didn't do blues by not knowing them beforehand.

    OTOH, I've tried my darndest to expose my kids to the greats. The other day my son asked my wife to turn up GVF in the car. I don't think I had anything to do with that. AFAIC I should have made them listen to more Zeppelin. If I had, they would either hate LZ due to me making them listen to them all the time, or they would love LZ as much as I do. In either case, they would be more likely to pass on GVF since they know the real deal. Kids today. :rolleyes:

    Some of you must have really bad memory if you've forgotten Plant, Thorogood, Orbison, Alice Cooper, and several others submitted in this thread.

    With Kyle hanging around Mad-town, it's hard to forget those guys.

    While I agree, as I said in my post , he's certainly not forgotten, but I've not heard that song of his from the 80s in like, forever

    I checked this album out of the Library. Couldn't afford it at the time.
