Come on man! At least give me Chubby Checker?!Bill Haley and His Comets-greater in influence -- From 2 hits? Really? He's no Little Richard.
Jerry Lee Lewis greater in debauchery and rebellion--Not a band.
Elvis Presley and the Jordanaires-greater in appeal--Not a band.
Little Richard-greater in style--Not a band.
The Beachboys-greater in harmony--Not really the most rockin' band, right. Did they even play on their records?
The Wrecking Crew-greater in ability and record sales--An ever-changing assortment of session players who were not a band.
Grateful Dead-greater in live ticket sales--This is a matter of personal taste, but I simply don't like this band. At all.
Van Halen-greater in guitar sales--Right on this one... Replace the Eagles at No. 5.
Jimi Hendrix Experience-just "greater" lol--One guy wrote all the songs, sang and played with two sidemen -- Not a band.
So one guy writing most (not all) of the songs doesn't equal a band - but two guys doing it is a band. Zeppelin, Van Halen, The Beatles, The Stones, Credence (one guy - so none of these were bands?Jimi Hendrix Experience-just "greater" lol--One guy wrote all the songs, sang and played with two sidemen -- Not a band.
You can have Chubby Checker if you want.Come on man! At least give me Chubby Checker?!
(Hopefully we are all....well, the ones of us that are left anyway, still laughing.....lol)
NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!You can have Chubby Checker if you want.
Is that your final answer?
There is one from your list you can't choose though:
Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Founded Westminster, London England (theres that country again) in 1966.
If your argument is that
he was born here then
by that rationale
you have to
go outside right now
"Van Halen is not an American band" (which they are).
The brothers were not born here.
..count me in the still laughing camp.
Zeppelin should be pushed down the list just because of their terrible lyrics.NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
NOT giving this one up Snappy. Westminster be damned! Jimi Hendrix is as American as Apple Pie, and our conversion will end right here until you say "uncle" on this one!
I will, however, discuss Led Zeppelin's rape and pillage of American artists who had to enlist lawyers to get writing credits....and why they should even be honored with a top five slot!
Nah...Robert Plant and Jimmy Page called up Alistair Crowley and made a deal to steal Janis Joplin's voice...I always thought that Robert Plant sounded like a German guy whose only experience with the English language was Willie Dixon songs and Lord of the Rings.
They became a lounge act.Top 25 things to argue to no end about:
25. best drums
24. greatest guitarists
23. best drummers
22. whether to have a Designated Hitter in the National League ('no')
1. greatest bands
Fleetwood Mac is a rock band? They used to be a blues band, and then.....
