What We’re Listening To: We Love The ’70s

And while you might reach a point in your life when you feel you have outgrown a particular sound or artist, there is always a certain bit of unique nostalgia enjoyed by listening to a piece of the past.

This month’s playlist celebrates the music of the 1970s by honoring some of the era’s legends of rock that we lost in 2016.

Glenn Frey (1948 – 2016)

Glenn Frey was best known as one of the two most popular and longest tenured members of the Eagles.

Paul Kantner (1941 – 2016)

Singer/songwriter and rhythm guitarist Paul Kantner was a founding member of Jefferson Airplane; one of the first and most commercially successful San Francisco acid rock psychedelic groups of the ‘60s.

Keith Emerson (1944 – 2016)

Maurice White (1941 – 2016)
