Great instrumental music. They had the most hits behind elvis and the Beatles in the UK.
Roger Nichols is a brilliant songwriter.
Anyone else remember a little song called "In-A-Gadda-the-Vida"? First band to have an album go platinum in the USA? Pioneers of psychedelic/heavy/acid rock?
Love the band but saying that they're the creators of heavy rock is a overstatement. Bands like Cream were much heavier than them in the sixties.
The creators of hard and heavy rock.
Listen to them!V 1 Comment
"Along comes Mary" is my favorite and that was also the name of my first crush..V 1 Comment
Tracy, is their best song. I still love it.
I don't much about them other then Friday On My Mind but man that's a great song.
England had The Beatles, America had The Beach boys and Australia had The Easybeats. the Easybeats were an incredibly talented band, The lead singer Stevie wright, was the most entertaining singer and dancer of the 60s, I encourage to watch on YouTube Friday on my mind 1967 live on French T.V. , it will make your day.
They were Australia's Beatles, An incredibly talented band, had quite a few good songs 'sorry' is one of my favourites. but the band didn't really get all that much recognition overseas, like many other great Aussie rock bands. if you ever get a chance go on YouTube and watch Friday on my mind live on French T.V. , The lead singer Stevie wright, is one of the most awesome performers I've seen in rock n roll, check it out you won't disappointed.
Incredible band of the late 60's. Should be in the top 20 without question. I put them in top 10. No one sounded like Jethro Tull! Benefit and Stand Up were two early albums that led up to Aqualung, a ground breaking album of its time. That was followed by Thick as a Brick, which was also revolutionary.
Love this band. Innovators of their time. Should be in top 20 of all time best bands.
Very unique sound. A blend of blues, folk, jazz, and experimental infused into their own enchanting rock music formula. You can't hear them play their materpieces and simply turn around!
I love rush. They didn't release their first album until 1974
Greatest band of the sixties era and regarded as the first psyhcadelic band in the U. SV 1 Comment
They didn't make an album in the 60s, they still started then though, but I see them as a 70s band
One of the best concerts I ever went to.
Black Sabbath not a 60s band
Certainly one of the greatest rock bands ever, but, their first album came out in 70', so, they can't possibly be considered a 60's band. - cptron
Greats song part of the union
When I was a kid I bought the BLIND FAITH album.
Listen to "Do What You Like" It is a long song but you will love it.
Would not get away with a 13 year old girl half naked on the album cover now. well alright greatV 1 Comment
