Greatest 60s and 70s Singers and Bands

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Helen Reddy Helen Reddy Helen Maxine Lamond Reddy is an Australian singer, actress, and activist. In the 1970s, she enjoyed international success, especially in the United States, where she placed 15 singles in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100. Six made the Top 10.

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.

82 Herman'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

83 Black Oak Arkansas

Greatly underrated and a first class live act!

84 Kate Bush Kate Bush
85 Flo & 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.


Had more hits than the Velvet Underground, Parliament, The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, and The Staple Singers combined.

Greatest BAND EVER! Enough said...

Very underrated musicianship. Tommy Shaw is a amazing talent

87 Dave Clark Five

Best rock band of that era for me anyway!

I like their theme "Because"

Should be in the top 5.

88 The 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!

89 Steely Dan Steely Dan
90 Earth, Wind & Fire Earth, Wind & Fire V 1 Comment
91 America

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

Awesome in concert, I have never seen anyone better live.

He must be in the top ten.
There aren't many guys who are 65+ and give live performances of 3,5 hours long. Paul McCartney to. This is a horrible list from. Every performance Springsteen give ther are 40000+ people.
