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
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.
