    Then there came my favorites, hair bands and grunge. I can't wait
    to see Rock of Ages, coming to me from Amazon tomorrow. Rock Star is
    another one I just love. There was a weird video of a concert taped in
    Maryland at the old Capital Center that I bought. It was Judas Priest
    in concert and I bought it because I was at that concert but it turned
    out to be a day time concert, and I went at night. Same tour, same week.

    I can't believe it but I found the entire video in the parking lot of
    the Judas Priest parking lot in Landover MD from the tour I went to in
    my 20s.

    Favorites are very personal, so I tried to only include people that
    others my like. Hence I included Elvis although I don't care for his
    music. I disagree about Joe Cocker. I consider his music both
    original and some of the greatest. (Is he really a white guy from
    England?)

    Less mainstream (today) are Curved Air (especially their first album),
    Pat Benatar, Acker Bilk, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, The Faces, Lynyrd
    Skynyrd, Journey. That's all for now.

    I just want to add that there was a PBS special many years back
    featuring Keith Richards. He was touring the US, interviewing and
    jamming with the musicians that were his idols. If you can find it
    it's a wonderful piece of rock history. (If you find it let me know!)

    Wait, relevant to what? I'll bet it's not acid trips or
    "chicken-fried" stuff.

    Rhythm & Blues, surely.

    Great band. With completely different music.

    Country.

    Hard Rock.
    Some good songs, but not very influental.

    Good on the guitar. Let me add Santana here.

    Never heard of them. I'll look them up.

    Good guitarist, also.
    But not really influental like the Stones and the Beatles.

    ---------------------------------------------------
    Both were good. Police' "Message in a bottle"
    is one of the best Pop songs ever.
    AC/DC : Australian Rock.
    I like it, too.
    Let me mention INXS here (Pop).

    ------------------------------------------
    Nope. That was Punk. You've forgotten Iggy Pop, btw.
    I'd also like to add The Cure, for Gothic Rock.
    ------------------------------------------


    Favorites are very personal, so I tried to only include people that
    others my like. Hence I included Elvis although I don't care for his
    music. I disagree about Joe Cocker. I consider his music both
    original and some of the greatest. (Is he really a white guy from
    England?)
    ----------------------------------------------
    We need to sort Pop from Rock'n Roll, Rhythm & Blues and Pop.
    It makes no sense to compare the Stones and the Beatles.
    Both left their mark.
    -----------------------------------------------

    Less mainstream (today) are Curved Air (especially their first album),
    Pat Benatar, Acker Bilk, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, The Faces, Lynyrd
    Skynyrd, Journey. That's all for now.
    ------------------------------------------------
    Jethro Tull was one of the best ironic Rock bands.
    Deep Purples "Child in time" is a Hard Rock Classic.
    Let me add Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" here.

    Cheers,

    To answer the OP: 1971, right after Sticky Fingers.

    Just as Dylan became irrelevant when he released Nashville Skyline.
