Music Note Your top twenty bands!

The list of my top twenty bands evolves over the years but rather slowly. In rough order right now it would be as follows:

Rolling Stones
Doors
Animals (Eric Burdon & the)
Beatles
The Who
(Peter Green's) Fleetwood Mac
Cream
Kinks
Blondie
Jethro Tull
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Ten Years After
Jimi Hendrix Experience
Junior Walker & the All Stars
Spirit
Roxy Music
Butterfield Blues Band
Yardbirds
Creedence Clearwater Revival

David Bowie, Johnny Rivers, Neil Diamond, James Brown, the Supremes, the Four Tops, Prince and Jeff Beck could make it up there somewhere but they're not bands.



Any more lists?

Exclamation Re: Your top twenty bands!

Ordering the list is almost as tough as deciding which bands must be left off the list.

Re: Your top twenty bands!

I like the mix of old and new.

We saw the Heartless Bastards at the Guvernment in Toronto in August 2009. They were opening for the Decemberists. The Heartless Bastards we rather liked. Overall though it was not a good experience that evening since it was standing room only. We were already tired from spending the holiday weekend touring six or so beaches on Lake Erie from Port Dover to Port Stanley and it was hot and claustrophobic in the concert club. I vowed to never again consider a concert in any venue without comfortable seating.
