Top 10 Best Power Trios

Most Bands Have 4+ People, Not As Many Only Have 3.

The Top TenXW

1Rush

Dude rush is the greatest band of all time. Yeah how about of all time! When you listen rush you are changing your air instrument constantly.. Easily number 1!

There is no doubt Rush is the best band of all time. But having only 3 people? Well, that's something else.

Best band and nicest guys in the business!
They deserve every accolade they get!
Blah blah blah!

3CreamCream were a 1960s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton.

All due respect to the other trios in this list who are, indeed, very good, I believe Cream, for being one of the first (if not truly the first) power trios and for the influence they had on modern music and on blues rock, should be first.

The best bassist Bruce and Clapton on lead. Creams live recordings are better than most other trios studio work.
