Remnants of band are still worth viewing and enjoying the experience. I attended Lockin' 2015. I waited 42 yrs. to get an opportunity. I'll savior that for 42 yrs. if I make the journey. Piece and love to all.

Queen Report Abuse
Queens music changed rock forever. Freddie Mercury's vocals were the perfect complement to the awesome sound created by the band. Everyone loves songs like Bohemian Rhapsody and Another One Bites the Dust, but they literally have 100's of songs you could fall in love with.

Black Sabbath Report Abuse
When you think of the origins of Heavy Metal Black Sabbath is the origin. Ozzy osbourne went his own way in the 80's but before that he made hits like Paranoid and Iron Man that kept teenagers rocking for the next 30 years.
