Default Need new artists to listen to - Inputs needed

Hi all,

Those who know me, knows that I'm a big fan of guitar rock, and a big concert fan

My favorites are Thin Lizzy (John Sykes), Guns and Roses, Velvet Underground, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Ritchie Blackmore, Angelo Batio etc.

Can someone guide me to find artists playing similar kind of music, and perhaps link me to free listening samples ??
I need to "pimp up" my collection

Besides that I'm a big fan of so different styles like Genisis, Saga, Mike Oldfield and many other artist not known outside Denmark

Suggestions please.....

Default CD Baby!

Cd Baby is a great place to find non-commercial music that is marketed and funded by the artists themselves. The rock stuff is broken up into 15 or so sub-catagories- Instrumental, Metal, Math, etc. They have great prices and excellent MP3 downloading of the WHOLE song and in some cases, most of the album. Not sure about the shipping though. Im only 100 miles from their warehouse so its not a concern for me.
I can spend hours checking out the music.

Happy hunting!

A bit heavier but i think their band must be mentionned here : Dream Theater. And if you like really great guitarist, try some G3 live performance. They're great.

Some (not very original) sugestions:
- George Thorogood and the Destroyers
- Litlle Feet
- Steve Gibbones Band – “Birmingham to Memphis” very fine HiFi recording.
- Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Do you know www.pladekisten.dk, he's an expert in finding out what people are looking for.

I know both Litlle Feet and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The last have made some fine songs...
Especially the version of "Sweet home Alabama"....
I don't know why, but that that song is just soooooo damned good

Hi, ACD.
Some of my current guitar heroes are Richard Thompson and Bill Nelson.
They´re not so hard rock oriented as the likes that you´ve mentioned ; R. Thompson is more rock-folk oriented, sporting witty lyrics and an exceptional musicianship; Bill Nelson is moving through some more experimental fringe this days, but his work is full of memorable guitar playin´.
And how about some Bad Co.?

If you´re into prog, -and if you don´t know them yet- I think that you`ll like some old Premiata Forneria Marconi, ca. 1971/1975. It´s beautiful music, seasoned with ¨those¨ vintage synths -Moog, Mellotron-, nice guitars and some mediterranean feel that`s very compelling.
And if you are adventurous, and in the mood for a more mellow flavor -geez, this sounds like a cigarrettes ad - I can´t reccomend you a better prog album than ¨L´Heptade¨, by a seventies Canadian outfit called Harmonium.
Imagine some early Genesis mixed with folkish air and french chansonnier delicacy... it´s a gem.

Now that you´ve mentioned Thin Lizzy, I´d give an arm -and some leg too- to get back the double vinyl ¨Live and Dangerous¨ that some mofo stole from my vaults...
What a band!
As a funny note, I remember some episode of ¨The Benny Hill Show¨ in which him an some other mates -all of them of venerable age and totally out of shape- performed a sketch full of black leather, chains, blonde women, motorcycles and nonsense called ¨The Boys are Back in Town¨. The soundtrack was a cheese cover of the eponimous anthem, go figure... very funny.

Regards
