Re: Top 10 Bands Excluding the Beatles & Led Zepp

The Rolling Stones easily for me...top 10 in my book. Thin Lizzy second, top 20 band for me.

The rest I like in varying degrees but none would reach my top 25. Note: The Beatles and Zeppelin would be in this group as well so they didn't need to be excluded for me

Re: Top 10 Bands Excluding the Beatles & Led Zepp

From your list only The Who would make my top ten.

I like everyone else on your list with the exception of CCR, Thin Lizzy and Radiohead.

Pink Floyd (especially Syd Barrett Pink Floyd), Queen and The Stones would probably crack my top 20 but not 10.

I'm glad to see to see Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones doing well here. Tkitna has limited musical tastes.

Re: Top 10 Bands Excluding the Beatles & Led Zepp

I don't really keep a ranking like that, but he Stones, Thin Lizzy and The Who would certainly be among my all time faves. I like all the bands on that list except the Doors, who I think may be the most over-rated band in history.

Re: Top 10 Bands Excluding the Beatles & Led Zepp

From your list,
The Who
Cream
Thin Lizzy

But the Beatles are my #1 overall. Led Zeppelin, not so much, though I do like them in small increments. When they play an LZ song on the radio, that's about the right increment for me. Unfortunately, it's usually the same bloody song.
