Animal’s Daily Icons of Rock News

Thanks again to Pirate’s Cove and The Other McCain for the Rule Five links!

It’s no news to any long-term readers of these virtual pages that I’m a fan of old head-banging rock & roll.  To that, here are a few songs that stand out in the rock & roll universe; unforgettable songs that will last for generations.

The first:  An American success story of six guys from the Midwest who realized the American dream, and made a great American classic rock song along the way.  Here is Kansas with Carry On Wayward Son. 

Next, a song that not only ended up on my list of icons of rock, but also in a scene immortalized in Wayne’s World.  This is Queen with Bohemian Rhapsody.

Next, from the album Bat Out of Hell, here’s rock big boy Meat Loaf with Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

One more; a while back I listed my top five guitar players.  I’m not as up on drummers, but I do know one thing:  Neil Peart stands alone.  Here he is with the rest of Rush with YYZ.

I’d like to do Icons of Rock once a month or so.  Suggestions are welcome.
