Fair points about the forum split, but maybe part of the reason you don't see a lot of classic rock discussion is because most of the bands aren't releasing any new music or doing anything, so there's not a whole lot to talk about? Might be the reason why the classic rock forum is so barren as it is. So I think it's kinda overestimating the effect a separate forum can have on this one, Rock & Metal has been thundering along on it's own steam for ages. If you took the traffic of Classic Rock and added it to here, would it result in much more than a couple of extra posts a week?
I think there is plenty of discussion to have on rock bands though, one look at the front page, and you've got gigantic
threads about Pearl Jam and Guns'n'Roses that are massively popular, so we have that going for us
I don't think anyone should feel that there's not a space for rock here, because if I can fit all my Visual Kei stuff in here, then there's a place for anything!

If this is about my "The funny side of..." thread, then I'd like to make it clear that it's not meant to make jokes OF Rock/Metal fans, it's a bit of fun where fans laugh with each other
