The J. Geils Band and Aerosmith
Yep you are right, but for a pop band not for Queen...
"It's funny because it's true" Simpson's quote
Worst concert that I ever experienced was Journey in the early 80's. It was so bad that I still get pissed when a Journey song comes on the radio!
You don't like "Born in the USA" !?!
I m trying to get Bruce to take part in my Lewes to Cape May swim event ; let's hope that , tho a Tele player , he doesn't t read this forum.
It's not that there are no second acts in American lives, but it's usually where the audience leaves the theater.
You gotta appreciate Steve Lukather for jumping on the Mork suspenders bandwagon so early in the game.
When an artist or band is young and hungry (sometimes literally hungry) they find that one song or album and take off. Later, they are not as young and not as hungry but the fans and the industry wants more. So they put out more music and it isn’t quite as good. It is probably more normal than abnormal. After ten years you get: We Built this City. Yech. It is hard to repeat that one original big hit.
I think you can follow most any band or artist and find this to be true.
It could have even been true for the Beatles but they broke up inside of ten years.
Nobody said Queen...

Threads like that one always irritate me a bit.
I mean, I do have favorites albums/songs amongst some bands.
I like Genesis with Gabriel way better than the 4-piece. Except Duke, everything from the 3-piece Genesis bores me.
On the other hand Talking Heads got better from album to album - 1977 is quirky, but in no way as exciting as Remain In LIght or Speaking In Tongues.
But, honestly: isn't it kind of boring to have a band that constantly repeats the same idea for 10 or more years?
I find it more interesting to listen to a development - sometimes it's a disappointment, but sometimes it's breaking new ground.
Some of the comments here seem to be.....looking for a place where everything is cozy, warm and happy-joy-joy.
And to add to this.... Radio GaGa. Deliver me...
I'd take any of the stuff from the 50's-80's over the crap they're pushing out these days.... all genre's IMO
There you go. They were my first thought. I read and scrolled and couldn't believe they weren't mentioned yet. I always blamed Skunk for that. He brought MM in and they went from jangling yelping rocking China Grove to...you don't know me, but I'm your bruuuther. Lounge laxative.
A true student of the game, this one. Cause Radio Ga Ga wasn’t on any of the albums listed...
I just think his song structure was so much more interesting on his first few albums. He’s still cool.
In 1979 my favorite albums were Tom Petty “Damn the torpedoes” AC/DC “Highway to Hell” Foreigners “Head Games” and ZZ-Tops “Deguello” Hank Jr’s “Family tradition” and “Whiskey bent and hell bound”. I am 54 now. And personally that was the last perfect year of music for me. I really disconnected from the 80’s forward. Aware but did not care! Give me 1948 through 1979 that’s where I exist. (My two cents worth).
70's- La Villa Strangiata
80's - Time Stands Still
I was 15 in 1980. I performed in two bands at the time A rock-n-roll band named “Black Mass” I was bassist and backing vocals and in a Honky Tonk band that I formed called “Detour” I loved deep purple but they were not the band in the 80’s that they were in the 70’s as for AC/DC well.....I was personally crushed when Bon died and still am. But yea outside of Back in black they suffered in the 80’s and beyond.
All three of the groups you mention made line up changes that I feel made them suffer musically. The biggest was Gregg Rolie leaving journey. They were a much better band with Gregg. C’mon he sang Black magic women when he was in Santana. And he took a lot with him
With his exit from Journey.
“News of the world” was my last favorite release by the band.
I happen to like "These Dreams," I do.
I also like "I Wanna Know What Love Is" and ""Waiting For a Girl Like You.
Classic songs that I still sing in the shower. Shoot me.
