The Contenders: Page 5
Wow, this is a surprise... I love Sparks! They are clearly the best on the list so far. - asdfalexiaV 1 Comment
I'm surprised to see them this high on the list... They're one of the best lesser known bands
Solid country rock -- associated with Linda Ronstadt, Eagles, Pure Prairie League, Poco.
Should be ranked much, much higher. Probably not because of some country, or too much.
A great band. They sold more records in 1970 than any other band. To put them at #94 is completely bonkers. The were easily in the top 20 bands of the era.
Great band to grow up listening to--rock at its finest.V 2 Comments
Many hits. Their voices also were the sound of the 70s, at least in NYC.V 1 Comment
Great Party band. Knew them.
Should be in the top 10 range. 1 of the best lead guitar players of all time, eddie hazel
Always underrated. Great rock.
Awesome band. Went to see them at Summerfest in milwaukee, Wi (worlds largest music fest- 10 days of every kind of music), rained out. Went to bar nearby. Who walks in, right, Allman Bros. Small stage with instruments. THEY WENT UP & PLAYED!
Listen to blue sky, ramblin man and Whipping Post. Great songs - randomstofil
These guys should be way higher. They have so many amazing hits and they're an outstanding band. I love the J. Geils Band. They need so much more credit and recognition.
Top 5 live band of all time... Limited catalogue yes... But enough for 2.5 to 3 hours of the most high energy- well played soulful R&B with outstanding lead showman...
One of the best rock bands of all time their 1972 album argus a masterpiece beat out deep purple machine head for best album of the year in the U.K. on my list they are #1 for sheer output and musical ability, even with a diff. Guitar player after their wishbone four release, most bands couldn't hold a candle to them, also check out their 1st lp, and the new england lp
Really? #125? The best band of the 70s is #125? I think you people really need to adjust your music choices. It is just sad to see that you think so low of the Bee Gees. I am very disappointed in all of you!
How can you not love the pitch perfect harmonies of the Gibb brothers. The group that made disco dancing a night club favorite.
Huh? Were you alive in the 70's...the Bee Gees ruled that decade
Pitiful listV 2 Comments
102? 102?!?!?! "Helplessly Hoping," "Judy Blue Eyes," "Our House," "Teach Your Children," "Find the Cost of Freedom"...classics, I say! And I was born in 1996!
Without a doubt one of the best - incredible harmonies and a unique guitar sound with a wide range of songs from ballads to rock.
A great Australian Band... I put them in the same category as The Eagles.V 2 Comments
I love Marquee Moon! - MusicalPony
