They were pretty good once (back in the 70s). But as hard rock bands,
I would rate them below Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and
AC/DC. I might rate them equal to Guns N Roses or slightly higher.
They could be my 5th favorite hard rock band and probably the best
American hard rock band of all time.

You are not American. Stop listening to our music. There is a spill on aisle
5 and the hot dog relish is running low. Get to work Paki.

The Doors
Grateful Dead

Santana
Mountain

Now, if we want to go prog:

Happy The Man
Crack The Sky
Echolyn


Now, you only asked for one. I can come up with a 100 progressive
jazz / fusion / prog bands for you to munch on...

You only said BAND, not the type of music.

The debut was great. After that Morrison took too much drugs and lost
his mind. In short, one album wonder!

Cult hippie band usually laughed upon by non-hippies.

Another hippie band. Had one decent album.

Apart of that long 17 minute song does anybody know anything else by
them?

One (Abraxas) classic, two decent albums.

Havent heard them. But I never seen them being called as a great band

You must have taken too many drugs, or haven't listened to anything
else by them. This one album wonder thing you have is a repeating,
self-fulfilling prophecy that is not true because you say so...

Everything is self-evident?

>> Grateful Dead
>
>Cult hippie band usually laughed upon by non-hippies.

Fine. Although I am not their highest paid fan, they had been around
longer than you've been alive, until Jerry Garcia died.

>> Jefferson Airplane
>
>Another hippie band. Had one decent album.

Once again, you haven't listened to more than that one album.

>> Iron Butterfly - first platinum album
>
>Apart of that long 17 minute song does anybody know anything else by
>them?

Absolutely. Remember - this is the band that pretty much started the
drum solo thing - blame them.

>> Santana
>
>One (Abraxas) classic, two decent albums.

You missed a few others, because you had your nose up Syd's butt.

>> Mountain
>
>Havent heard them. But I never seen them being called as a great band
>by anyone. Forgotten band... yes!

Apparently you haven't been following the music scene as long or as
tough as you think you have. Leslie West was one of the better
guitarists of his day, Felix Pappalardi produced Cream and played bass
and hence some of the sound they had. They pretty much opened their
career at Woodstock - not the '90s, but '69.

>> Now, if we want to go prog:
>>
>> Happy The Man

This was the band that Peter Gabriel was asking to go on tour with him
after he went solo. Shows how much you know.

>> Crack The Sky

A local, Pittsburgh band that had a cult following in the '70s.
Progressive / pop / etc. band.

>> Echolyn

Caused quite a stir for Sony records here in the states after a few
homegrown albums brought them into the limelight.

>Who?

Exactly. If your musical "knowledge" were a bit more rounded out, you
may find that your 5 band wonders you keep repeating are not the only
names in town.

Now, of course I didn't hit on some TRULY heavier bands because I
needed to test the waters, roger. Oops, Raja.

I'll toss one other one for the trivia lovers in the audience:

Vanilla Fudge. From Long Island. Remember Led Zeppelin? Before
"Does anyone remember laughter?" They OPENED for headliner Vanilla
Fudge on their first tour of the states. Hmmm...

They also opened for Hendrix on one of his tours. Hmmm... They were
pretty much one of the first hard rock / almost metal bands, with a
heavy does of Motown and progressive leanings.

Yes, and they did have some chart work over here but were much more
well-known for their touring and live shows.

Speaking of Hendrix... He's is NOT British, but from Washington state
- USA. He served in the US military. Although Redding / Mitchell may
have been Brits, Miles / Cox were not. Hendrix is a homegrown USA
product, with a little help from British studios and mismanagement.

Although you think of him as a one-hit wonder, he makes Syd look like
a grain of sand in comparison.

Let's continue with the Miles Davis sect. Where do I begin? There
are so many technically and sonically proficient band members in his
career that it would be absurd to name them all, except as one of your
lists. Let's start with 4 of them however, who seemed to have shaped
a lot of the music from the late '60s to '70s:

1) John McLaughlin
2) Herbie Hancock
3) Joe Zawinul
4) Chick Corea

If you don't know those 5, you have NO idea about jazz / progressive /
avant music in the USA.

Your serve.

Doesnt matter, they are filed underrated category... much like The
Guess Who, Cannned Heat etc. Not in the greatest category.

Raja, you've just managed to out-do yourself in the idiocy department.
Somehow you keep figuring out ways to set the bar lower and lower.

It's a kind of achievement, I suppose.

You only quoted one band from the above. Where's the rest, Grand
Vizier?

You forgot Headhunters, Weather Report, Return to Forever. Keep
coming back. There may be hope for you soon.

BTW - PS - Hendrix didn't really need a band to back him. He could
play drums when he anted to and a nasty bass, which has been
multi-tracked on albums because Redding didn't want to play the part
or had a huffy fit.

But, you knew all that, correct? Let's keep this going. You'll be

Maybe there's hope for you after all.

I spoke too soon. You knee-jerked right into that one. Re-read what
I said. Did I say ANYTHING about Mitch Mitchell?

I'll repeat it, in caps so you can read it properly:

HENDRIX COULD PLAY DRUMS AND BASS AS WELL AS GUITAR, SO TECHNICALLY HE
COULD BE A ONE MAN BAND ON AN ALBUM, IF HE WORKED AT IT WITH
MULTI-TRACKING.

Tracy didn't say Mitchell wasn't an amazing drummer, merely that Hendrix
could play the drums as well.

Constructive suggestion: After you read something, think before
responding.

How about 'The Return of the Son of Monster Magnet' from 1966?
The Mothers started the drum solo thing as well.

"The man who made lists to fend off depression"

"[W]hat did Peter Mark Roget, the creator of Roget's Thesaurus, do to
handle all the pain, grief, sorrow, affliction, woe, bitterness,
unhappiness and misery in a life that lasted over 90 years?

He made lists.
. . .

And according to a new biography, making his lists saved Roget's life
and by keeping him from succumbing to the depression and misery of
those around him.

'As a boy he stumbled upon a remarkable discovery -- that compiling
lists of words could provide solace, no matter what misfortunes may
befall him,' says Joshua Kendall author of the just published 'The Man
Who Made Lists' (Putnam, $25.95), a study of Roget's life (1779 to
1869) based on diaries, letters and even an autobiography composed of
lists."

Thanks for the concern/sarcasm. I have no depression whatsover. The
only thing that might depress me is Grunge. Thats why I stay away (as
Alice in Chains would put it).

I'd think you would be excited to learn about the existence (or former
existence) of a kindred spirit. You and Roget obviously share a highly
refined weltanschauung. :)

Not very exciting to learn about depressed people. Kurt Cobain
discovered the best medicine for depression. It still works for those
people!

But depression aside, Roget is clearly more your type of guy than
Cobain, right? Cobain may have made music, but Roget made lists! And
his name even sounds a little like yours. :)

There are millions of people who make lists. They are not your type.
Stop being such a racist. ;-) Do you want me to say all the Janitors

Not with this kind of fervor - I've never seen anything like it.

Obviously you can't help it, because when you stop & think about all the
lists you've posted, & all essentially the same subject, it's quite
amazing. I'm impressed.

I'm not taking sides here between you and PR, but I have to say that
you keep listing the same bands over and over again. I would like to
hear about bands that aren't so well known. I'll post some songs or
bands that posters might not know about..old or new.

raja doesn't get much credit here but i've got to give you some for
the inclusion of the jesus and mary chain. fantastic scottish band and
i've seen them live a few times.

joy division, stone roses, the verve... bit of a liking for
lancastrian bands, huh?

do you include new order with joy division or no?

all the best,

I like pyschedelic oriented music. And these bands are quite
psychedelic. And wrote some good songs. John Squire is a very good and
underrated guitarist. Also Nick McGabe. And Peter Hook is a great
bassist.

I heard a bit of it, not really my style. Their music was completely
different than JD (and they were the same band minus the dead singer
and a new keyboardist).

also, if you're talking about "best" bands in terms of technical
virtuosity and live performance/interplay (regardless of whether or
not their type of music is to your taste), you've just got to include:

rage against the machine

muse

tom morello's guitar pyrotechnics for ratm and matthew bellamy's for
muse are just amazing. trivium are a pretty good live band too.

all the best,

Almost all standard Music 101 names. You've barely scratched the
surface. And you're far too detached from the culture to have any idea
about which bands are "forgotten" or "underrated."

As for the US vs UK issue, I'm sure that I own more albums by US acts
than UK ones. And if I attempt to obey your nonsensically inconsistent
rules for defining a "band" ("anything with a member's name in it can't
be a band, unless it's the Jimi Hendrix Experience because I like them,"
etc.) the US still will have more bands I enjoy. What's more, by a ratio
of almost 2:1.

Well, certainly not according to the preferences of the Rate Your Death
Metal website.

And you don't even know either way. You're just posturing as usual,

This list can't be serious because there are too many notable omissions.
Among them, Grand Funk Railroad were too big not to be mentioned in any
serious list.

best = decided on quality of musical output (subjective)
greatest = combination of popularity, historical importance, impact
and respect (could be objective)
biggest = most sales, hype in media, popularity among a wide range of
audience (completely objective.

All the three are completely different.

Given your nickname, I can understand your adding GFR to the list.
Schacher was a force to be reckoned with.

If you think Grand Funk Railroad is on the "serious" short list of the
most heralded bands of all time, you're almost as out to lunch as Raja
is.

Although I agree that they may not be on the list of greatest bands for
those who love Pink Floyd,
it cannot be argued that they sold millions of albums and filled a lot of
venues. Their musicianship
and unique style made them successful.

Well, I gotta side with Raja here. You're making arguments based on
money, not art.

Also, that band's stock has HUGELY dropped since their heyday. To the
point that it's hard to fathom that they were ever as popular as they
were.

I never could see the point of them even when they first came out. They
came across to me as very amateurish.

I'd much rather listen to Floyd. In fairly small doses.

What puts you to sleep? The Wizard of Oz? LOL
PFFFFFt, it's a myth that you can synch SDoTM to the OZ movie.

> I do have A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS.

And?

You really should give Dark Side Of The Moon a listen, I think you'd really
like it:)
Hey, I fall asleep to Pink Floyd all the time.

A brit in Canada named Toby Swann played with "The Battered Wives" and did a
killer version back in the early 1980's of "Rainbow" (Judy Garland sung it in
The Wizard of Oz).

No one has a clue about Toby these days and knows where he is, but he is a
legend.

His drummer became Blue Rodeo's for a long time, Cleave Anderson.

I'm 50, and what you say is similar to what my 86 year-old mother says about
Tommy Dorsey.

But, just two days ago "Blige and Jay-Zee" were playing the local stadium, so
many in the elevator ride were piining about such a show, and there I was
quiet, not saying fuck all about my night out seeing Ray Davies from the
Kinks!

Generations? Sure!

Almost 60 here. I've got a few Floyd albums, but frankly back in those
days bands like The Who, Queen, and (gasp!) Alice Cooper had more of my
attention. But I'm pretty much comfortable with *good* music of any
generation.

My oldest son loves that stuff. From what I've heard, Opeth is one of
the more musical of the genre.
I was happy for Raja's sake, though, to see that "Charlie Brown's
Christmas" edged out "Close to the Edge". :)

Best, greatest, does it really matter? Because it's just the same list
of the same names, over and over again.

Please seek help. OCD is treatable. Plus, a shrink can help you sort
out why your mommy didn't give you enough attention as a child.

LOL

Here's another one:

Omega (45 yrs hx, greatest band from former Soviet sphere)
Beatles (best pop group that went experimental)
Zeppelin (well, everyone likes to pick a winner)
Yes (best ensemble of virtuosos ever, period)
Tubes (best theatrical/genre fusion band)
Clash (a great blender band of genres)
Tang Dynasty (PRC's first and best metal band)
Moody Blues (ultimate symphonic)
Trettioåriga Kriget (best Swedish band)
King Crimson (best live improvs)
Grateful Dead (best hippy movement band)
VdGG (best dark prog, plus Hammill)
MC5 (great blend of psych and punk)
Henry Cow (the RIO innovators)
Magma (the Zeuhl innovators)
Flower Travelin' Band (best psych band ever)
Rolling Stones (best rock-n-roll outfit)
Velvet Underground (best at raw rock)
Who (best rock band)
Tangerine Dream (synth pioneers)
Iconoclastia (best neoprog)
Devo (best new-wave band)
Stranglers (best 70s punk band)
Hawkwind (best festival band)
Mahavishnu Orch. (best fusion collective)

These bands not only rated by popularity, but by influence. 90% of
what's out there today (in the *real* musical sense) is just rehash of
what these guys did. Also, inclusion of non-US bands like Omega
simply because they soldiered through artistically difficult climates.

Yes. Or was it
