Greatest 60s and 70s Singers and Bands

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Flo & Eddie

Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman had a good run with the Turtles, then hooked up with Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention and had some success there, but their several albums as Flo & Eddie are genius as well as artistically beautiful. They were great on the stage also.

82SantanaSantana is an American Latin rock band formed in San Francisco, California in 1967 by Mexican-American guitarist Carlos Santana.

Gotta love Santana. I've seen them 4 times - the first was the early 70's in Milwaukee.

Top 10 guitarist ever. In my opinion.

Santana needs to move up the list. A rare talent.

83Herman's Hermits

I remember how I felt when I heard them sing. It bothers me I can not remember their names. Can anyone help?

Herman's Hermits in 1968. Keith Hopwood, Karl Green, Derek Leckenby, frontman Peter no one, and Barry Whitwam
Of course Peter was Herman. Great Band

85The Zombies

They should be higher than this number! They were an awesome band despite being so underrated.

Brilliant keyboard player; Rod Argent, coupled with brilliant lead voice; Colin Bluntstone equals brilliant group!

86America

Songs like Ventura Highway, Tin Man, Daisy Jane and Sister golden hair are some of the best of the 70's.

91Three Dog Night

A great group of the 60's & 70s. I followed them through my 1st & 2nd Navy enlistments and like them to this very day as a now 72 year old man. Their music to me is timeless.

Legendary group from the 70's. Played in 2 super bowls.

Fun tempo variation. What a variety of music they played. 59 and still listen to this old stuff

Why are they only number ninety six and not in the rock and roll hall of fame

92Sonny & Cher

After their divorce, Cher, unlike Tina Turner, also went solo and sold more than 500,000 copies of her 1998 release, Believe, beating out Madonna's Ray of Light. Her rival is Ashley Tisdale. Cher also appeared in numerous films including Moonstruck (1987), Mermaids (1990) and Burlesque (alongside Christina Aguilera). - playstationfan66

Sonny and cher made me a very happy person in California at the age of 16 being all alone I ENJOYED LISTING TO I've GOT YOU BABE

93Jefferson Starship
94Carly Simon

Loved this girl! All her songs were so heartfelt and I loved every minute of them. I am still a fan.

I'm going back to re-discover singers I liked. Carly is one.

95Ted Nugent

PAPA Nugent is the greatest. I went deer hunting with him last year on his ranch. It was on The Animal Planet. I found him to be a down home kind of man with no proud attitude. He wasn't a star in his eyes. You were an equal in his view.

Ted Nugent is a freak. He is an America haring traitor to the USA. A Whiner. And, the most boring "musician" I have ever heard.
