Re: name the band

#4 - Annie Haslam. I must admit I'm not the biggest Renaissance fan.

Re: name the band

This is a WAG, #3 - Steve Hillage.



I graduated from Rider in 1976. I know that Boston and Billy Joel played Rider in 1977. Boston had a female bass player but I thought that was much later. ...

Re: The Byrds versus Steppenwolf!

I won't even try with this one. It's a tie for me. I'd only hurt my brain trying to choose one over the other.

And why isn't Steppenwolf in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame???

Re: How Web Activists Caused Rolling Stones to Drop 'Brown Sugar' - Ultimate Classic

The one thing you have to remember is that it is not 1964 anymore but 2021, 57 years later. And the reasoning today is "Money talks, and BS walks".

Re: Rolling Stones versus U2!

This one is easy for me, the Rolling Stones. I really can't stand U2 BUT, I do seriously like one of their songs, 'Beautiful Day'. I don't know why I like this song, but I do.

Re: The game changers for rock music!

If you use the term 'enormously influential' regarding changing and influencing rock music in the late 60s, then you must include Sly and the Family Stone.
