Hurts my Ears just thinking about how bad KISS sound.!V 3 Comments
The Beach Boys should be way higher, a lot of great hits, and came out with an album last year that was in the top 5... lets see the stones or kiss do that... not to mention the fact that the Beach Boys have had 3 times the top 40 hits that Kiss ever thought of having.
Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys' songwriter, possesses an astonishing talent and is still active today. The Beach Boys deserve at the very least Top Ten billing.
Come on - they actually were the only bad that knocked out the Beatles in a number 1 slot. Also Paul McCartney gives Pet Sounds high praise.
Pet sounds! And I love Sail on SailorV 7 Comments
Pure funk and soul
Nobody worked harder thn this duo with their music and dances!
After they broke up and later divorced, Tina Turner went solo and performed her cover of Missing You, much to John Waite's dismay, along with her personal favorite, What's Love Got to Do with it. - playstationfan66
It's Marvin Gaye. That's all you need to say.V 4 Comments
Totally, totally untouchable. The best group ever by several light years. No group now, or in the future, will ever get anywhere near them.
Number 1 Bee Gees fan
These 3 brothers wrote such a variety genre of music. This is so unlike the BEATLES whose music all sounds the same. Very little variety. The Bee Gees should be ranked MUCH higher than #25. They are totally genius!
They wrote songs for other famous singers that made it to 1# and remained top longer than others
Song and hit catalogue second only to the Beatles! Wrote classic hits for themselves as well as many other well known artists! Beautiful lyrics,voices, and heavenly harmonies!V 11 Comments
The greatest band ever. Just a group of spectacularly gifted musicians who could play anything. They continued to evolve, even through the tragic deaths of Duane Allman and then Berry Oakley. I can only imagine what they might have been had those two not passed.
What else can you say except... Fillmore East! That will live forever,... I rest my case, your honor.
The Allman brothers have always been a great bunch of musicians "no side shows, theatrics or tricks" just great musicians playing great music.
The most original and influential band in American history. Just ask any band who influenced them the most. Hands down it's The Allman Brothers Band.V 1 Comment
Nobody, but nobody can top the Moody Blues in continuing touring for so many years and still sounding like they did in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90, 2000 and to the very present day. Their talent supersedes any other group. Their songs are known worldwide, they have sellout crowds wherever they go and their music is timeless. It's just as valid today as it was when the songs were recorded. They'll always be #1 in my book.
These guys are the best band ever and are still going. They started in the 60's and are still touring and writing songs and singing the tunes that have influenced three generations of fans. I'll be on their Moody Blues Cruise in March and I'll see them again this year when they tour in the fall. They are brilliant!
The Moody Blues music is timeless, a classic band who are still around performing, selling out venues. What does that tell ya? They have the most loyal, devoted fan base who truly gets it. The Moody Blues made beautiful, incredible music.
Day's of future passed is a classic. The Moody Blues carved out a very special niche in the music of the late 60's and early 70's. They took those of us who are borderline bi-polar on a special trip into sanity.V 15 Comments
What! Should be top 5 for Paris Live if nothing else.V 1 Comment
The original heavy metal band. They should be number 1 because without them every metal and hard rock band would not even exist.
I can't believe they're not already on the list. Black Sabbath RULES
Best band of the 70's bar none! Ozzy's best years by far and they haven't been killed by over-playing on the radio like Led Zepplin.
They should be nomber 1!V 2 Comments
What a talent. I love all her music.
The Empress Of Soul had mega hits in the 60's and 70's: Grapevine, Neither One of Us, Midnight Train To Georgia, If I Were Your Woman, The Way We Were, Imagination, On and On ^^ many more.V 1 Comment
Beautiful music that reached many people throughout the world. A real tragedy with the death of Karen Carpenter. There music is still very popular.
THE LATE GREAT KAREN AND RICHARD CARPENTER 2 MUSICAL GENIUSES!
With the unique voice of Karen & the beautiful harmonies Richard wrote, much of my youth was spent listening to these guys.
Favorite of all time @V 9 Comments
Totally agree saw them twice in early to mid 70's exceptional musicians and as you commented unique to the era, superb live performances.
Incredibly talented musicians, totally unique style and sound in that era.
Virtuosity at every instrument. The most musically talented band of the seventies by far.
Say them when they backed Janis Joplin at the Albert Hall.V 2 Comments
Diana Ross paved the way for many performers. No one had a sound quite like the Supremes headed by Diana Ross. Still a legend in her own right.V 1 Comment
The Kinks should be in top five. Most underrated group of all. Ray Davies is a one of a kind writer. It is an insult to have some of the people listed above the Kinks. They don't belong in the same conversation.
They should be at least in the top ten, they were extremely versatile and have influenced many groups from the past and present but still, they are impossibly underrated which is deeply saddening!
They should be higher because so many bands' biggest songs were covers of some of their songs, that tells you how influential they were.
One of the best bands of all time as well as in the 60's and 70's.V 3 Comments
Shine shine, shine boots of leather
Was the spaeter von raus kam, Lou Reed, John Cale... Schon Spitze!
The four seasons invented a new sound that still impresses to this day! Many people don't know that they sing a lot of good songs.
Really unique sound that was different at the time. Should be a top 10 group
Great band, Frankie is one of the greatest singers of all time.
Just love their music - never tire of listening to itV 1 Comment
Elton John Is Simply AMAZING! He is a musical GENIUS! I'm 15 years old and he is my absolute favorite singer ever! I play the piano and I would love to be able to play the way he does! His music is so beautiful!
One of the best singers of all time. He is known for his Grammy Award Nomination of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" (off the Soundtrack to The Lion King). He also produced It's a Boy Girl Thing and did one of the songs to the 2006 film. His songs are the best (including the theme song to DreamWorks' The Road to El Dorado). - playstationfan66
Led Zeppelin will always be my favorite band, but Elton John is what introduced me to music. He will always be one of my idols.
Equal Number 1 for sure, great talent. He and Bernie wrote and composed a great breadth of very popular work.V 2 Comments
Most powerful female voice; no one is her equal.
I love her. She was amazing women with unique talent and voice. - Sid
The pain she went through in life and love came through in her music with such real passion you couldn't help but not love her. A voice you could never forget.
No one will ever match her talent.V 1 Comment
NOOO this should not be on the list
Amazing California band with a deep south sound. Southern rock at its finest. Enough HITS for three albums!
Best American band of the time period
Should be at #1 followed by Elvis then the Beatles
Great music w/girlfriend, great $#@...V 5 Comments
