King Crimson are undoubtedly the the most skillful band to have ever existed.
Robert Fripp is one of the best guitarists in the world and very underrated, and has created some of the most influential music. Fripp has also carefully selected the bands line-up over the years, and have had numerous players, starting with their current line-up (their 8th incarnation of the band, with Fripp being the only permanent member) includes Jakko jakszyk (incredibly skilled guitarist and vocals), Mel collins, and undeniably fantastic woodwind musician, tony levin, bassist and one of the best chapman stick players in the world (seriously! Look him up! Incredible! ) and best of all the drummers, there are three of em, all of which are unbelievable and the best drummers that are currently touring and performing, Gavin harrison is one of said drummers (he is also drummer in porcupine tree) is the most notable of all of them being able to do the most incredible drum solos.

If more people knew about king crimson, they would certainly be on the top! It is a band that has had 20 phenomenal musicians pass through it's ranks over the years, but too few people can appreciate them!
Robert Fripp has the same musical approach of Miles : he introduces incredible musicians in Crimson and, then push them beyond what they already know : " because is there that Real Art and Music come out " (Miles)

Seeing zac brown in person is life changing. Every single person in their band is as good as it gets at their instrument. And they all sing and harmonize perfectly. Zac brown band is the most talented band in the world. Hands down
Mark is one of the best guitarist to breathe air.
Man in the Box, Rooster, Would, No Excuses, etc... enough said. Best songs and one of the best bands of all time! May possibly have been slightly overshadowed by some of the more mainstream hits and bands of the 90's but many will agree that Alice in Chains was unique and something everybody can relate to in their music. They will live on forever...
AC/DC was not very musically talented no clue why they are on the list
AC/DC may sound simple, but their hard-rock tone poems are genius and their music is timeless.
All their songs are easy to play.
I personally prefer nirvana to all bands higher on the list, except maybe rhcp and tool, but they are great because of their songwriting, not their technical talent. Kurt was no Jimi Hendrix, Dave is good but not great, and Krist was an average rock bassist.
How could this be so low? I mean kurt cobain, KURT COBAIN! And dave and krist!
Dude we are talking about nirvana not only smells like teen spirit but with the complete nevermind rape me heart shaped box where did you sleep last night pennyroyal tea you know you are right about a girl allapoligies... Like every single song
One of the most creative bands of the early 90s (apart from possibly tool)
Victor Wooten? Jeff Coffin? They are like pizza and everyone else is green beans
Myles Kennedy has a brilliant voice, and is an extremely proficient guitarist too. When coupled with Mark Tremonti's guitar, the band uses riffs that I imagine could only be played by the more technical thrash metal groups. Incorporating heavy riffs and drums into rock music is a brilliant idea, and requires great talent.
This is the stuff of legends. Period.
Were they seriously not on the list? - christangrant
Not many people can play complex riffs and different time signatures while belting out some of the highest notes in rock singing like chris cornell!
One of most talented rock bands. Chris Cornell's vocals! Kim Thayil's rifts, the hypnotic beat of Matt's drumming. Need I say more?
How can people forget about this band. They have the greatest guitarist of all time, one of the best drummers and bassist of all time. They influenced many bands and revolutionized sounds
in rock music.
You're right, they should be in the top 5, but people always vote for their favourite band, not for the best one - Rocker00
Les Claypool I would say is tied for the greatest bassist of all time with Geddy Lee. But I think Larry LaLonde and Tim Alexander are very underrated because the live in Claypool's shadow. LaLonde actually is a pretty sick, fast guitarist and for Tim Alexander... Listen to Frizzle Fry. Primus should definitely be higher on the list.
AMAZING instrumentals, doesn't sound like anything I've ever heard before. Of course Les Claypools singing isn't exactly what I'd call good, but it fits their sound nicely. Really great drumming, amazing bass playing, and incredibly under appreciated guitar work.
Talented, original, true musician's band.
Any Drummer, Guitar Player and Bassist know by hearing (nearly) any of their songs how focused they are.V 3 Comments
All members of Van Halen are very talented. Eddie is considered to be the greatest and most influential guitar player since Hendrix. David Lee Roth is one of the best frontmen in rock. Alex is an excellent drummer. You can't get more talented than the mighty =/-/=
This band is amazing, don't forget Michael Anthony the best back up vocalist of all time.. deserves top 5.. and eddies the best bands down
All I have to say is Erruption, and hot for teacher
Even though I'm completely fine with rush at the top :)
Van halen needs to be at least in the top ten with Eddie, Alex and Dave
They are better than most of the bands on this list (besides rush)
Let's not talk about Into my Arms, Mermaids, O'Children - a song that appears in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, People ain't no good, Where the Wild Roses Grow Old, Jubilee Street, We Came Along this Road, As I Sat Sadly by Her Side, The ship song and more and more...come on people...he's a genius.
The Bad Seeds are extremely gifted musicians and Nick Cave is a genius.
