The '70s really did have alot of diversity in music, I think everybody can find at least something they can like in that decade, whether it be proggy stuff, punk, hard rock/metal, laid-back soft-pop, folky, dance or cutting edge electronic music. The '70s is definitely my favorite decade in music, it had everything from the late '60s pyschedelica in 1970 to synthy '80s new wave in 1979. The other decade comparable with that much diversity is the '90s and to a lesser degree the '00s.

I love the sound of a Fender Rhodes electric piano, it was THE definitive keyboard of the 1970's.  :)
