    Always loved Pink Floyd and David Gilmour's guitar especially. Led Zeppelin, Gentle Giant, Jethro Tull, Queen, really most of the great 70's and 80's rock bands I still listen to. The Clash were great, Joe Jackson, and INXS was about the tightest band in the 80s.

    I went into a gay bar on a Thursday, or maybe it was Wednesday, and they were actually playing good stuff like that. People were happy. I don't know why they feel the need to play awful crap on the weekends.

    Wow you are lucky to have a bar that plays that. It's usually Lady Gaga or some electrotrash. I love to dance to classic rock. It makes me happy too.

    I like Rock music, well, my taste varies a lot though. But Yeah I like none of the bands you mentioned OP. Lol I like more Pop/Rock British/Irish and American bands rock music. Been listening to Bronski Beats a lot. Still love the Beatles, Coldplay, REM, Third Eye Blind, Simple Plan, Green day, U2, Duran Duran, Modern Talking...etc. When I was growing up, I really like Simon Le Bon from DD, I thought he was so Cute.

    what kind of rock music you are referring to ? There are many sub genres of rock music. For me, im into the unconventional rock music...strange in terms of musicality, abstract in arrangements and strong on the feels side. Prog rock and post rock anyone else ?

    Absolutely! My music collection is about 70 percent Rock (almost all sub-genres), and about 75 percent of that comes from the UK. Looking forward to seeing live shows by U2, Steely Dan, and Elvis Costello this Summer!

    My favorite genre is none at all. ECM Records

    https://www.google.com/search?q=ecm+records+cover+art&safe=off&biw=1904&bih=1034&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=u0rrVJ_8F4u_ggT_i4DgDA&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ

    The album cover art makes it apparent regarding content. I have what I believe to be the entire ECM catalog in vinyl and much of it also on CD.

    Then 30-40% of what I like is classic rock starting in about 1964 up until the mid 70s.

    Btw, for those Living Stereo fans from the shaded dog era NOT Dynagroove, the best from the catalog have been rereleased and from what I hear from folks who know, They're fantastic.

    I'm not getting the new turntable until I move so I haven't personally heard them yet, but I still love the cover art. I have the originals (and many 1Ss) plus the reissues done in 94 ... in fact the test pressings.

    Folks who have the original shaded dogs know what fantastic performance these are so now it was time to really clean up the sound quality

    Pretty amazing for a 1954 recoding.

    How many here have the original LSC 1806?

    I love my punk rock, but appreciate good music. So, yes to the rock music!!! The Beatles and Zeppelin are 2 of the greatest bands ever, and Joan Jett is still incredible live. All of my workout and road-trip playlists are about 1/2 rock and 1/2 punk, with absolutely no electronic or dance music.

    Who has the Led Zep reissues that Jimmie Page has been working on the last couple of years?

    This has been covered: Yes, yes, and YES!

    There's PLENTY of gay rockers out there/here!

    I like house and techno as well - and SOME pop music - but rock is my bass... icon_twisted.gif

    I love rock music (all types) and think many gay men do as well (including many different genres of music) but find it curious how most gay clubs don't reflect this.

    Because Top 40 is BUILT, literally, to dance too. Since gay clubs usually want a light, airy and dancey atmosphere, there you go. And straight bars are JUST as guilty of this (the only exception being that straight clubs will tend to lean more heavily on RAP and Top 40, whereas gay bars really shy away from rap and lean heavily on the "Divas" (Madonna, et al), Top 40 and Techno).

    Some genres are just more danceable. I'm a classically trained ballet dancer and love leaping in the studio to Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, but when it comes to drunken dancing nothing beats Top 40/rap/techno.

    The only time I can think of "rock" music reigning (at least at a few parties) was at dorm/frat parties, but that was more 80s than anything (Def Leppard "Pour Some Sugar," Journey "Living on a Prayer," Billy Idol "Mony Mony"). I can think of one country bar, "Shooters" in Durham, that also plays mainly rock and has a dance floor.

    Another big time rock fan here. I love most types of rock though my most favorite genre of it is Alternative Rock & Grunge.

    Garbage
    Smashing Pumpkins
    Stone Temple Pilots
    Alice in Chains
    Bush
    Chevelle
    Poe
    Hole
    Soundgarden

    And so on, if I were to list every band I liked, it'd go for days haha. But yes, another fan of rock here and I'm sure there are lots of gay men who love rock music. It would just be nice if more gay clubs would have rock music in them, it'd make me want to go to them more. It's not that I hate dance or electronic music but hearing nothing but it, drives me insane.

    Correct IMO, its all 120 BPM in homosexual dance bars. Drive down SM Blvd. in WeHo and that's all you hear is tweet tweet boom boom at 120 BPM ... all of it. However, exclusively dyke bars aren't like that.

    "It would just be nice if more gay clubs would have rock music in them"

    We did at one time before about 1975 .... the good days before Donna Summers came on the scene.
