40 turning 40 in '13 - Part 2

By June 27, 2013

Follow me on:

As I was putting together the list of classic rock albums that are turning 40 this year, I was struck by just how significant the year 1973 really was in classic rock history.

In the first part of the alphabetically arranged list, the first 20 included debut albums from Aerosmith, Marshall Tucker Band and Montrose, and career-changers for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Wings. Now we come to the Part 2, with even more debuts (Queen, Springsteen, Skynyrd) and career changers (ZZ Top, Genesis, Joe Walsh, Grand Funk Railroad.)

The classic rock era may not have begun in 1973, but the albums that were new 40 years ago had major impact on the genre.
