No one rocked like Seger live in concert in the Seventies.
Some of the greatest songs ever written in my book.. Simple yet extraordinary.
Bob left memories that make me a wealthy soul...
Hands down bob seger is the best rock and roll band there ever will beV 5 Comments
This is the band that inspired iron maiden... Check out the seminal album "argus".. It will blow you away... Twin lead guitars set the bar for bands to come...
They certainly deserve a higher ranking - and they are still unbelievable. The melancholic harmonics of their twin lead guitars are unforgettable.
Well we can't all get the limelight but worthy of collecting and should be much higher on list
Love um but where's Savoy Brown?V 4 Comments
Classical music inspired rock before anyone else The first concept album, adding poetry to their songs before the doors, innovative and inspiring underrated genius
Fantabulous band of serious musicians. Not always good but when they tried they were one of the best bands. Many top songs and Melancholy Man, a B side to a top hit, was featured in a recent movie cause it's so good. Loved it when I bought the single as a young boy, and still do, as with all MB. No right to be at 66, at least in top 15.
Sit back have a beer or a bone and enjoy the greatness of the moody blues
Wildest dreams... a top 100 songV 5 Comments
Tommy boy is just king in his world of songs
Needs to be wayyy higher!
One of the best selling groups of ALL TIME! They were so much more musically talented than the majority of bands higher up on this list; they incorporated jazz into all of their songs. They had great vocals too. Top ten material.
Great first album - then down hill from thereon.
They are the most underrated band ever!
1st and 2nd albums.V 3 Comments
Rik Emmitt -most under-rated guitarist and songwriter maybe ever
Oneof the nicest guys and groups in person. Very approachable and human. Did not think too much of themselves
Bad Company at 60 They out sold almost everyone in the 70's, and probably had more hits then anyone on this list in the 70's, except maybe the stones
Hell ya paul rodgers best vocalist
Surprisingly they put out great albums
Good bikers musicV 1 Comment
They weren't in the 70s. One of the best in the 80s for sure!
Favorite band of the 1980's, Hysteria was the theme music for many of my teenage adventures, still love definitely Lep and always will consider them true Monsters of Rock!
Incredible songwriters and arrangers! Too often associated with disco, they wrote so many other songs and for other artists. Even their disco is great to listen to.
How are the Bee Gees not #1? They are the best band eve!
Best group ever
Very talented family and could write top songs in about 5 mins, which wasn't easy in the 70's because you had to be good, and the competition was fierce
Even The Beatles loved the Beach Boys Pet Sounds -- one of the most innovative writers and arrangers ever-Brian Wilson. Good Vibrations!
60s no talent bums. There was a nice pop hit after the breakup, in 1970 or 71
Awesome! Listen to the Pawn Hearts album.
Classic psychedelic power trio who blow all others away - except for Hendrix and Sabbath.V 2 Comments
Truly underrated band, often sharing members with the Eagles, Buffalo Springfield, Loggins and Messina, and Steely Dan, among others.
Fool for the city and slow ride, what more can you say
Had this tape and wore it out cruising back in the day.V 2 Comments
Great band love their music
I'm not saying number 1 70's band, but defineatly needs to be on the list, songs like "horse with no name", sister golden hair, you can do magic, ventura highway
I LOVE THE BAND AMERICA!
How can a band that has China Grove, Listen to the Music, Takin' it to the Streets, Black Water and other classics not be found on this list! The Doobie Brothers belong!
True doobie brothers are great and for sure should be on this list super underrated I even saw them live a few nights ago believe it or not
Still on the road with sold out shows. Great musicians with fantastic song catalog. Go see them live...you will be surprised!
Ahead of their time
