A few of the bands that are in heavy rotation on my playlists these days. Some old/some new, but definitley worth a listen:
Greta Van Fleet - Sound EXACTLY like Led Zeppelin on most of their tracks. 3 brothers from Michigan trying to bring back the late '60s/early 70's hard rock sound (Wall Street Journal did a good write-up on these guys). My band has covered "Safari Song" a few times. If you've ever been into Zeppelin, give 'em a listen.
Nahko & Medicine for the People - I've seen these guys live 4 or 5 times in the past year and their shows never disappoint (Their shows at Red Rocks in Colorado are awesome - its like the place was built for them). Nahko's lyrics generally have an uplifting message and weave his native American background into much of their material (he usually starts each show with a prayer for the crowd given by his medicine man uncle in full Indian costume) - their live shows are almost a "religious experience". Hard to put a label on them, but sounds a little like Dave Matthews. I spin these guys up almost every time I get in the car. Nahko is by far my "best discovery" of the past 5 years.
Carbon Leaf - An adult contemporary act out of Virginia (I think) with quite a bit of Celtic flair. Apparently these guys have been together for over 20 years, but I had never heard of them until a buddy asked me if I wanted to attend a show with him as he was a fan. They hooked me at the show and I find myself spinning their studio releases up frequently. "Indian Summer" is a particularly good release.
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

The Bad Poodle: This may be a truism... when you work in a corporate structure, the worst decisions always come from the top.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
