About Us

Welcome to Best Classic Bands, where artists and music lovers still rock.

We merge the best aspects of superior rock journalism with the vitality of the digital age to provide a comprehensive and authoritative online resource, news hub and lifestyle destination for followers of the golden age of rock – from the 1960s into the early 1990s – and new acts that continue the style, sound and spirit today.

We feature artist profiles and interviews alongside reviews of albums – new, reissued and vintage – as well as live shows, books, and films/DVDs, all with an accent on bands and solo acts that are launching tours and currently on the road. And also explore many aspects of rock music culture and history, the business of music, musical artistry and much more, all within a multimedia context that features videos, music, mixes, song and video premieres, and free song downloads.

Our daily breaking news updates and up-to-date tour listings provide fans with immediate information on their favorite artists. We also keep our readers filled in on festivals, special musical events and more, plus regularly aggregate stories of interest on music and artists from around the web and both latest and vintage sales and radio charts from a variety of sources.

Our Ranker polls and social media platforms offer classic rock lovers interactive elements to connect with other fans and us. Best Classic Bands also features cartoons and animations, rock photography spotlights and “Music for The Eyes” galleries. We look back at notable events, occasions and important dates from the past with “On This Day,” and pay tribute to recently departed artists, musicians and other key musical figures with “Rock In Perpetuity.”

Among the services we will soon provide our readers are immediate click-throughs to purchase music, concert tickets and more, and regular contests where they can win special, rare, and one-of-a-kind prizes and items as well as in-person experiences with their favorite acts.

We are proud to have gathered a crew of seasoned and talented music journalists who have written for and edited some of the most notable rock music magazines, major daily newspapers, industry trade magazines and books about artists and the music. We will also feature editorial contributions from musicians, industry veterans, our readers and other lovers of classic rock.

We strive to be a musical best friend to both the artists we cover and visitors to our site, celebrating the music and those who make it and sharing our love for the timeless music today and in the past. Thanks for stopping by. By all means, click around our site to see all of the different areas we’re covering.  Bookmark us, like us and share all we do with your friends.
