She was part of that "performance art" era that produced some good and bad (I'm looking at you Lauri Anderson) stuff.

Well, most 70's-80's bands were better in the 70's (even if their 80's stuff is still good). smile But I have been listening to "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" the last several months and will continue to slowly progress backwards [oops: and some forwards] through their discography.

Concur. The band lost most of its progressive edge when Gabriel left and they eventually evolved to mainstream rock by the time of "We Can't Dance".

Genesis was not unique in this though. Both Rush and Yes also became less and less progressive and more and more mainstream as the years went on.

Lauri Anderson was interesting but ultimately not very good. Kate, on the other hand, was a genius. She was still a teenager when she wrote this.

This is true about Yes, at least. I find early Rush to be more mainstream. Even Geddy Lee has admitted that he didn't understand a lot of Neil Peart's lyrics. I found myself listening to more Rick Wakeman solo material than Yes, as I got older.

I watched ELPs last concert performance (I believe) not that long ago on TV and it was absolutely fantastic ("Take A Pebble" matching "Lucky Man" as my favorites)!

Very sad endings for two of them (quoting Wikipedia)...

"Keith Emerson died on 11 March 2016, of a gunshot wound to the head ruled as suicide. Greg Lake died on 7 December 2016 from cancer."

Indeed. Keith, apparently, could not live with the fact that he could not play at his best anymore.

No offense but there is no legitimate comparison between Kate and Cyndi.

I saw Pat Benatar live in Dearborn, Mi. about 8 years ago. She could still belt it out. Her husband is one of the most under rated guitar players ever. Live song from that time era.

Concur. The band lost most of its progressive edge when Gabriel left and they eventually evolved to mainstream rock by the time of "We Can't Dance".




I think Steve Hackett's departure. was a bigger influence in moving to a more mainstream/pop sound. After Gabriel left they still produced "Trick of the Tail" and "Wind & Wuthering," two excellent and very much progressive rock albums.
After Hackett left, they produced "And Then There Were Three...," which in itself is a commentary on their situation. The first tune on the album, "Down and Out," is about a band confronting the need to change their sound to be able to continue to be successful. Autobiographical maybe? Or maybe I'm reading something into it, but the album has a much different sound than their previous material, none of the long epic tunes that is synonymous with progressive rock, and a downright pop song in "Follow You, Follow Me," which of course became a pretty big hit for the band.

Speaking of 80's girls, who can forget the smokeshow that was Debbie Harry of Blondie ?



She was possibley the first rapper in this song...


Yeah, I know most of her hits were in the late 70's, but she had 80's success as well.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking
