Groovy music

Mutterings continued.

I've been listening to Yahoo's LAUNCHcast this morning and stumbled across the Jethro Tull station Not only JT, mind - it's currently playing Zepplin's The Battle for Evermore. It also features Crosby, Stills and Nash, Traffic, Yes and other cool stuff.

Now they're playing King Crimson's Court of the Crimson King. Which I have. Now it's JT's Thick as a Brick, which I also have.

And speaking of groovy music:

AC/DC beats U2.

AUSSIE rockers AC/DC have been named the fifth greatest rock act of all time in a poll of almost 60,000 British fans.

Pink Floyd topped the list, beating other rock legends such as U2 and the Who to the title.

Led Zeppelin came second, followed by the Rolling Stones.

The Who were fourth, then AC/DC, U2, Guns N' Roses, Nirvana, Bon Jovi and Jimi Hendrix.

The poll was carried out by British digital radio station Planet Rock.

The survey of 58,000 listeners also named the 1970s the golden age of rock, followed by the 1960s, the Spandex years of the 1980s and grunge decade the 1990s.

Pink Floyd are thought to have sold a staggering 200 million albums worldwide since forming in 1965.

Top 10 rock acts:
1. Pink Floyd - agree
2. Led Zeppelin - agree
3. The Rolling Stones - like some of their early stuff
4. The Who - agree.
5. AC/DC - ditto early stuff
6. U2 - nup
7. Guns N' Roses - def. nup
8. Nirvana - nup, again
9. Bon Jovi - see Nirvana
10. Jimi Hendrix - agree.
