The Contenders: Page 5
Alvin lee and ten years after great band, Alvin lee a PREMIERE JAZZ MAN PUT JAZZ & ROCK TOGETHER AND CAME AWAY WITH A PHENOMENAL SOUND. Listen to a song entitle STANDING AT THE STATION GREAT GUITAR RIFT... Should I say more
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.
Wow should be much higher then 90. - MusicalPony
Under-rated because north of the U.S. border. Mega hits.
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
Always underrated. Great rock.
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.
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
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...
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!
Great songs - great band
Best band of the 1970's. End of Discussion. Alternative Rock 10-20 years ahead of its time. An impossibility realized by everyone.
How come ZAPPA doesn't get a mention?
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
