Top Ten Most Underrated Bands and Singers of the 60sjmepa1234
The Top Ten
The kinks, one of my most favorite bands ever, is one of the best 60's bands alive. It's a shame that they didn't get as much fame as they should have.
The Kinks were around for about 30 years. They changed their music without sacrificing their sound. They never went disco.
My second favorite band of all time! I love the Kinks
A lot of people like the Doors but there some out there who don't think much of them and that's bull. One of the best ever
Often called The American Beatles during their heyday, internal strife ruined it, mostly in the form of David Crosby being a total jerk towards the band's primary writer Gene Clark. When Clark finally quit in disgust, the band was still good, but never quite the same.
Funny, all these years later, and David Crosby is still a huge jerk.
A Canadian singer and songwriter, who liked a French song, bought the song's rights for only ONE dollar, wrote English lyrics, called the English version of the song "My Way" and gave it to Frank Sinatra!
Yes, who doesn't know Sinatra's signature song? Paul Anka did a cover of this song, too (Paul Anka - My Way). The original French song was "Comme d'habitude" by Claude François (available on YouTube).
But Paul Anka also had his own hit songs like "Diana", "Lonely Boy", "Put Your Head on My Shoulder", and "(You're) Having My Baby".
He also wrote such well-known music as the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and one of Tom Jones's biggest hits, "She's a Lady". - Metal_Treasure
Oh yes, I agree with that. He might be the best singer ever. - Metal_Treasure
Back in the headlines again as of April 2016, as courtroom proceedings indicate that Led Zeppelin stole substantial parts of the Spirit song "Taurus" to compose LZ's "Stairway to Heaven".
Scottish hard rock band. I like their version of Love Hurts, originally by The Everly Brothers. - Metal_Treasure
Not really a 60's artist.
Though formed in 1968 as a garage band, they did not release their first album until 1971.
The Box Tops is an amazing band, and even though I know only some of their songs, like "Cry Like A Baby", but overall, this band is very excellent.
Was not a solo artist during the 60's.
