Big Head Todd & the Monsters
Colorado never had rock heroes like the Columbine High School graduates, who took local buzz to a national level.
The Grateful Dead
The iconic band from San Francisco found a home away from home in the high country of Colorado.
Perhaps more than anyone else, the legendary pop superstar’s name is entwined with Colorado music.
The renowned singer claims Colorado as her home state, where her discovery of folk music set her on a path to fame.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre
One of the CCC’s largest projects gradually earned the reputation as America’s most important outdoor venue.
Joe Walsh & Barnstorm
Moving to Colorado and finding a spirited new band sparked Walsh’s classic rock mainstay “Rocky Mountain Way.”
The singer-songwriter’s biggest hits resulted from time on a Nederland spread and his ranch near Pagosa Springs.
Throughout the 1970s, the mountain retreat became the first “destination studio,” hosting the biggest names in music.
