I like Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, Zappa, early Beefheart, Doors, Gong, Can, Tim Buckley, Velvet Underground and related acts (Lou Reed, John Cale), Jonathan Richman, 13th Floor Elevators, the Deep. I like folk acts like Dylan, Ochs, Donovan too but that's not so much classic rock I guess, but the same ballpark. Can't go wrong with some Creedence Clearwater Revival or Lynyrd Skynyrd or something along those lines either.

More in the vein of old school rock stuff, most of this is 70's stuff.
