There will be influential songs again but not the albums. I think the album as we know it is history. Maybe will rise again in a different guise, but for now singles rule.

I think Paul McCartney is the most influential living rock composer.

albums:

eagles, hotel california
skynrd, second helping
floyd, piper at the gates of heaven
guns & roses, G'NR lies, and use your illusion 1 and 2


individual songs:

Montgomery gentry tattoos and scars and she don't tell me to
kenny rogers buy me a rose
joe nichols the impossible
mark wills don't laugh at me
billy currington walk a little straighter daddy

just a few. i am also a fan of jazz and swing, and i can play the trumpet, piano, 6 and 12 string guitar, alto, tenor, and soprano saxophone. i have dabbled from time to time with the trombone, french horn, bassoon, and a handful of other instruments. if pressed to name my influences in therms of bands that were, i would have to say the beatles, billy joel, guns and roses, and queensryche just to name a few. i was raised to not limit myself to just one of anything, especially when it comes to music, so i listen to it all.

Nice, ESP. Greg Lake on Epitaph, all except for Joan, she's still a hard core communist...her and Hanoi Jane should be tied to the Bow of the USS G.H.W. Bush and rammed into a steel dock...

i dont think any music influenced me as i couldnt name a single album in my possession. there are specific songs i like but nothing i find influential.

i would have to say stories of russian irish american and english folklore and greek mythology had a deep influence. couldnt get enough reading those stories

As far as concerts go, I saw the original Lynyrd Skynyrd in '73,, the venue had poor acoustics but it was very enjoyable. ZZ Top,, in '75 was excellent, never got the chance to see Floyd or Yes, had tickets for L.Z. in 75, but was cancelled due to an injury,, Jones I think,, saw Tull, CDB, Blackfoot, Kansas,
Ted Nugent,, good one,, and I think Sammy Hagar is outstanding live,, I missed a lot of concerts I would have liked to attend, work mostly, but some of the older groups are back out,, not as much range in their vocals, but their musicianship is still very good, so maybe I can get another chance.

Dark Side of the Moon is one of my favorites, but for honest, hard-hitting, honest poetry Steppenwolf Monster is right there.


Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The blue and gray they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war was over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem friendly and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind

'Cause the people got fat and grew lazy
Now their vote is like a meaningless joke
You know they talk about law, about order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand

We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner, we can't pay the cost

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watching

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster
America

As some have said, I too do not feel I was influenced by any single album, But I did listen to a lot of Jethro Tull, The Who, Savoy Brown, Neil Young,
Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Uriah Heep, and Deep Purple.
When I was in the army, and in K-town in 73 I got to see a band at a local show called West, Bruce, and Lang. It was less than a month before I got out of the service. I never heard of them before that concert.
http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/west-bruce-and-laing/1973/landesgartenschau-kaiserslautern-germany-2bdd38d2.html

But back in the late 50's I would listen to mostly country, and some of the rock of the day because of my uncles that were a little younger than my day.

Default Most influential Album, for me it was Animals!

I never saw the orig. Steppenwolf, but saw the reformed version 3 times...1984,1993, and the 1997 tours,...he still had that voice.....

Edit: Airborne, "West " was Leslie West( Leslie Wintraub from the Bronx) of Mountain,....Bruce was Jack Bruce from Cream,...( they had a guy on Guitar who was pretty good...)
