I suppose, but just saying thats as hard as i go and most of what i play is more MOR classic rock. Things like petty, doors, zep, santana, etc etc. Personally i don't consider VH metal because while they use some heavy tones they stay much more catchy and melodic than metal bands. IMO the songs themselves are more catchy pop tunes than metal, but they do it with heavier tones than typical for that. I think thats why they were so popular. They took the best elements from all sorts of music and blended them. Many of the best bands of all time did that. Some called zep metal but not many metal bands wrote things like over the hills and far away, going to california, bron yr aur, the rain song, tangerine, etc etc. Thats why i loved 70s rock so much. Bands would put out albums with all sorts of influences. To be honest i can't stand metal. Then again, i'm not a kid either, i'm a geezer.
