If your stereo speakers could belt out COOL, then Grass Roots are playing. Sounded way ahead of their time.
One of the top groups of the late 60's and early 70's with many top 40 hits to their credit.
The Grass Roots is an American rock band that charted frequently between 1966 and 1975

The most intricate harmonies and deep meaningful music of any era. With out a doubt they were American's Beatles.
The Genesis 1970-1974 era compositions are simply ''Master Pieces''. Their songs lyrics were tales based on history and/or legends who allude to our human condition. But their genius is the way they succeed to integrate the plot of the story in creating the musical tales which includes chapters, as in theater acts, with intro, preludes, development, intermissions, resolution, final, conclusion, prologue, etc... And they exploit the harmonization of the chord progressions with two or 3 guitars parts (often using the richness and fullness of 12 stings guitars). It was real musical journeys. And they carried us when they were making vocal harmonies with 3 or 4 vocal melodic lines. Those kind musical creativity has almost disappeared since the 80' as the music has been caught by the ''music industry'', which the aim is profit making. In my opinion, their most creative albums are Trespass, Nursery Crime, Foxtrot, and Selling England By The Pound.
Maybe one of the most influent rock band with gabriel collins banks rutherford and hackett.V1 Comment
Iconic in their persistence to sing about peace. Harmony and consitent audiences until Mary passed on.
Their music still lingers and will continue to stay forever...there is meaningful message that we can all ponder as we continue to live this life. We need those kind of music especially now that the world is in chaos. Maybe, just maybe, it will help change for a better world...
This woman made me horny every time I saw her. Her voice was among the best, right up there with Karen Carpenter in talent and looks.
Most underrated musician of all-time... Listen to any of his albums and you will get an immediate respect for his music... See him in concert and you will be a fan for life.
The man that inspired me to play guitar. Just the tastiest, melodic, and flowing guitar solos. Great voice and brilliant songwriter
Dave Mason is still the best, beautiful songs he is an excellent guitar player and singer.
Lynyrd Skynyrd lower than top 10 on a list of the best bands of all time!?!? Beat by the Jackson 5, a band who's most famous member wont touch a human over the age of 5. Skyntrd should easily be in the top 10 (top 5 in my opinion) next to the Almond Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Marshall Tucker, Steve Miller, etc...
There is no WAY Lynyrd Skynyrd is this low! He is a great singer. Lynyrd and Jim Croce should at least be in the top 5, which in fact Jim Croce's real position is actually number 2. I looked it up!
Should be up there with the Allman Brothers. Great band whose time was cut short by a plane crash.
They should be much higher on this list! Love them.V2 Comments
Tull (Ian Anderson) are one of the best bands of all time. They have been going for so long and have played many different genres of music not to mention the number of albums sold. They are still touring. can't beat that.
All time best overall music.. Original genre... Follows no pattern.. But is above the standard... Unbelievable timing, modulations, effects... Just unbelievable...
One of the best singer and song writer. Coming to America and Sweet Caroline are the best among many others.V2 Comments
I cannot believe Johnny Cash is this low on the list. Horrible list.V1 Comment
