    Definitely. My Classic Rock playlist probably gets the most play at the gym.

    The Tornadoes
    The Outlaws
    Sultans of Swing
    Steely Dan
    The Mars Volta (Not classic, but definitely psychedelic.)


    yes Steely Dan is amazing!
    The Mars Volta are just mind bending! In a way there are pretty much classic. They'll live on!

    Love all the bands you mentioned. This morning's cds while making big piles of snow were:

    Meatloaf "Bat out of Hell"
    Pink Floyd "Animals"
    Boston "Boston"

    Yesterdays included Allman Bros., CCR, Little Feat, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and The Who.

    BTW, Jefferson Airplane/Starship was with Grace Slick on vocals, not Janis as the OP suggested. icon_smile.gif

    This probably falls under the psychedelic category, but I recently discovered Laurie Anderson.

    This song is so strange, but I like it in a weird way.

    Well, duh, since I was your age when a lot of the bands were current. The Doors are my all time favorites.

    But you left out a few. Someone up thread mentioned A Beautiful Day's,"White Bird." The whole album from which that song comes is amazing.

    But there are a couple groups I want to mention that are less well known even than ABD...

    One of them is LOVE and "Orange Skys" from their Del Capo album will give you a taste, but the whole album is great.

    Another not so well known group is The 13th Floor Elevators. Here's their "You're gonna Miss Me."

    You also don't mention The Mothers of Invention or The Velvet Underground. True, they aren't exactly "Blues, Psychedelic, etc.," but they were certainly ground breaking and influential at the time.

    Currently, the CONTEMPORARY groups that most "evoke" (not sound like so much as remind me of the way I felt during) the '60s are (in no particular order):

    SONIC YOUTH, album: The Eternal

    THE BLACK ANGELS (Several albums including Phosphene Dream and Passover.

    THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE (Several albums including Aufheben and Who Killed Sgt. Pepper.

    HOUSE OF FIRE's album Old Kingdom.

    PUSCIFER's Condition's of My Parole.

    A local (SF Bay Area) group: WOODEN SHJIPS.

    And my current faves -- just because they're so awesomely, snottily California (even moreso than The Hollywood Undead ), WAVVES' King of The Beach
