Classic Rock Music 2011 at a Glance

So folks, its time to say goodbye to another glorious year for Classic Rock Music 2011, although with sadly some of the biggest passings too.

Here are some 2011 highlights at a glance in view of Classic Rock :


  • Clarence Clemons
    The "Big Man" was a member of E Street Band from the day it was formed in 1971. 
  • Gary Moore
    Blues rock axeman had a successful solo career after a six year stint with Thin Lizzy, beginning in 1973. 
  • Last, but certainly not the least, a special mention to the iCONIC Steve Jobs, who revolutionized the music listening experience by the iPod, that's become a household name in all forms of music. He has also been honored with a special Grammy this year. “He took technology and turned it into art, becoming a key player and leader in the entertainment world, particularly music, and changing the way we all use the Internet and consume music, TV, movies, books, graphics, and more,” the Recording Academy said.


  • Super Heavy
    Mick Jagger teamed up with Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley and composer A.R. Rahman to record a multi-genre, wide-ranging album that turned out to be brilliant as expected! 
  •  Pink Floyd: The surviving members of Pink Floyd reunited at Roger Waters show in London after so many years! Check this out
  • Guns n Roses, The Beastie boys and Red Hot Chilli Peppers got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
  • U2 named the highest earning tour act of 2011 grossing a whopping $293 million, followed by Bon Jovi.
