Classic Rock Defined

I write about this stuff every week so I might as well lay out something about what I consider it to be. I think it really goes on a song-by-song basis; artists like Neil Young have certainly done songs which are now classified as classic rock, but don’t stay within that genre. I think it’s limited to a certain time period, too. It starts in the mid to late 60’s and ends whenever the Tom Petty album with the track “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” dropped. A prominent guitar solo MUST be part of it. If the song is about missing a lover, or a lover leaving you or otherwise doing you wrong, then all the better. If I had to think of a band which fit this bill, I’d go with Badfinger. Judging from the videos, I guess I should add polyester to the criteria, too.
