125 The Stooges The Stooges The Stooges, also known as Iggy and the Stooges, are an American proto-punk band from Ann Arbor, Michigan, first active from 1967 to 1974, and later reformed in 2003. Although they sold few records in their original incarnation, and often performed for indifferent or hostile audiences, the Stooges are more.

Who is this? Before America. They had classics.

126 The Groundhogs

Great power trio, along with the Experience and Mahogany Rush.

I have a few albums are they are a top band with a 'blues' slant. Mr TS Mcphee is a master guitarist - Split is probably my favourite album while sont 3744 James Rd is my favourite song from album Hogwash... just love when Tony kicks the wah pedal at beginning of lead break, I think it's the sound of the switch, ?

127 Hurriganes

Roadrunner is rocking so is get on

129 The J. Geils Band The J. Geils Band The J. Geils Band was an American rock band formed in 1968, in Worcester, Massachusetts, under the leadership of guitarist John "J." Geils.

King Crimson should really be given credit for creating the Progressive Rock genre. Robert Fripp is known to be Jimi Hendrix favorite rock guitarist. How about the early work with master guitarist, bassist, singer and song writer Greg Lake.

Interesting, I will need to give them listening time

I just can say one word : Damn it!
