I don't mind 80s music. What does that mean, anyway? Metallica and/or Stan Ridgeway?

If you ask am I nostalgic for the Reagan era, I'll have to say no.

What are these bozos thinking?
You into classic rock? Me too...

I don't have Sirius so I can not give you my opinion on the channel...
I am into blues and clasic rock and the 80's music (which I know you don't like).

So when I am listening to XM, I mostly listen to 80's on 8 and Toptracks 46.

About getting a password ... I didn't get one until I e-mailed the customer service people ... they sent a password to me in just about an hour. E-mail support is really good with the dog, give them a shout. Phone support is also good ...

Clapton with Cream, Derek and the Dominoes, sure.

Not the pop-music ''Wonderful Tonight'' Muzak, again IMHO.

Actually, Eric Clapton does fit into classic rock catergory.

Why would The Rock switch to Lite Rock? The Bridge (Stream 25) plays Lite Rock

AC/DC was on yesterday, also Foghatt and Black Sabbath, Ozzy solo, and Molly Hatchet....none are "lite rock". The Rock has not gone lite, or dropped classic rock cuts...where do you come up with this??

I can verify the AC/DC song. It was Highway to Hell.

All I say is I'm hearing more Fleetwood Mac and John Fogerty and less real rock.

Since when isnt Fleetwood Mac and John Foggerty considered rock? Lets remember classic rock is not defined by you, and its not always "harder edged" cuts. Just because they add artists and titles you may not like does not mean The Rock is now a lightrock stream . It seems as if you are spoiling for a fight or just trying to stir things up a bit. In itself that is ok, but at least get your facts right before you sling it out there.IE.. "I didnt hear Led Zepplin today on the Rock, they must not play them anymore, and are going pop....", a statement like this or others is just plain foolish, and defeats any credibilty or validity you are trying to establish. Ignorance in this case is not a bliss.....

Don't you know, because he says it makes it so, he doesn't require any real facts and solid evidence. Its just another something else to whine and cry about to add to his long list. OH but watch it he will be saying you are attacking him, if you challenge his fairytales.

"Higher Ground" by Eric Clapton is not, nor will it ever be, Classic Rock.

That is your opinion, which now days is a dime a dozen. I said it earlier and I'll say it again, you speak only for yourself. No one cares about this but you. NO ONE! NOT ONE SINGLE SOUL! Eric Clapton belongs in the mix and so he is there. Now get over it!

You keep saying that, over and over and over, and that is your opinion.

If you don't care, why do you go to so much trouble to keep telling us that?

You embrace mediocrity and that's fine. You'll no-doubt have a wonderful life. Some of us are more demanding.
