  1. Danielz says:

    Great series on Apple TV, but pretty pathetic not to include T.Rex on the album. That is not only ridiculous, but unrepresentative of the time. In 1971, T.Rex were the biggest sensation of that period!

    • Gill says:

      I agree with you, but it’s an American series and T Rex and Bolan didn’t really impact America the way they did in the UK.

  2. Lynda says:

    Led Zeppelin where were they mentioned?
    Their influence on rock was astounding!
    You need to have lived thru the 70’s
    Who decided they weren’t valuable?

    B___h, B___h, B___h

    Leave that to the Stones. Celebrate the goodness of these videos and what the artists tried to convey to folks.
