This, combined with their own light show, their musical and vocal talents and their first class performance in matching suits, results in an excellent show experience. During the early 1970s, popular music continued to be dominated by musicians who had achieved fame during the 1960s such as the Rolling Stones, The Who, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, and Eric Clapton.
In addition, many newcomer rock groups such as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin appeared. The Beatles disbanded in 1970, but each member of the band immediately released a highly successful solo album and Paul McCartney especially would remain extremely popular throughout the decade. Singer-songwriters such as James Taylor and Jackson Browne also came into vogue during the early 1970s.
A major event in music in the early 1970s was the death of popular rock stars Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison, all at the age of 27. Two of popular music’s most successful artists from other eras died within eight weeks of each other in 1977. Elvis Presley, the best-selling singer of all time, died on August 16, 1977. Presley’s funeral was held at Graceland, on Thursday, August 18, 1977. (Wikipedia).
