I just heard Virgin Killer from 76'... who else was rocking it that hard in the mid 70s? It was awesome! Listening to Taken By Force now from 78'... wish I would have found this 30 years ago

Definitely Sabbath, Zepplin, Van Halen and Motorhead where there rocking hard.. but the Scorpions seemed to be ahead of their time. They were rocking real hard. Must have been Uli Jon Roth.

He was riffing and soloing back then like they were in the 80s.

I love the scorpions and Uli is amazing - he was ahead of his time...

Priest was rocking hard in the 70's...Sad Wings of Destiny came out in '76 which had Victim of Changes on it, which is an epic song from that era - probably my fave classic metal song
