My top 5 "and" bands...

It was much more prevalent back in the 50's and 60's...the whole "and" band thing...Paul Revere and the Raiders-Gerry and the Pacemakers-Little Anthony and the Imperials were just a few of the bands who were handy being "and-y."  So, today on The List I put forth for your consideration my top 5 "and" bands.  I left off Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street band just to see if it horked you off a bit.  My argument being, and I checked with some friends around the station, I usually just think of Bruce and not the band.  Although, it could be argued that I made a large mistake here.  So here's my list; Big Head Todd and the Monsters-Wanted some local flavor Bruce Hornsby and the Range-Big fan of those early albums Derek and the Dominos-Eric Clapton and Duane Allman...nuff said Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers-30 years and still going strong Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young-Between them, 8 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nods.  Very impressive!  That's it, that's The List.   Your thoughts on any"and" bands you feel deserve the lofty love ot The List are certainly welcome.

The Greatest Live Acts in Rock and Roll

Rolling Stone Magazine recently did a readers poll of the top live acts in rock history...I thought hey, what a great list!  So following is mine.  Criteria-showmanship, live sound, a long list of awesome tunes and finally...I have to like them.  Well, it's my list; 5-Elton John-first show I ever saw (1972-Denver Coliseum) 4-U2-The shows are a total Bono immersion.  His songs, his world views, his prowling stage presence.  It's an audio/visual expression turned up to 11 3-The Who-Pete's windmills, Rogers "manly" rock vocals and the brilliance of Townshend's Tunes! 2-Rolling Stones-Even if you get Mick in a belly shirt, it's still hard to take your eyes off of rocks most legendary front man.  And then there is the guitar interplay between Keith and Ron...The Rolling Stones are the worlds greatest rock and roll band. 1-Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band-Going to a Springsteen show is like going to a religious revival.  It's pure, raw, spiritual rock and roll preaching from the highest pulpit.  Three and half hours later, the band and the worshipers exhausted, the high takes over and the journey home is a joyous celebration. The Dead, The Eagles, Bob Seger, those are some of the suggestions I read on The Mountain's facebook page.  What would your list be?

The List-5 Greatest Classic Rock Bands

 Okay, so I made a list of the 5 greatest Classic Rock Bands.  As I started to pour over the rock and roll files deep inside my own brain, it occurred to me that this particular list needed a slight adjustment.  I was already 8 bands in and no American band had surfaced for air.  So, I bumped a brit and added my personal favorite American band in at the number 5 spot.  "Classic Rock" is a term that denotes bands or artists with great album content beyond the hit records.  My list is as follows; 

1-The Beatles 

2-The Rolling Stones 

3-The Who 

4-Led Zeppelin 

5-Creedence Clearwater Revival-The top American rock band during the onslaught of the British invasion.  

Even as I type this, my mind phone is ringing with other possibilities...Cream, Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Eagles, Jefferson Airplane, Van Halen and on and on and on.  But, this is my list and I'm sticking to it.  Gee…I’d love to read your thoughts!

Check your egos at the door...

I came up with a list today featuring my top 5 bands with more than one lead vocalist.  It's not necessarily a list based on historical contributions to music and pop culture as much as  it is a list devoted to bands who used multiple vocalists to their advantage.  And the winners are: Cream-Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton Allman Brothers-Dickey Betts and Gregg Allman Fleetwood Mac-Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie as of 1975 and prior to that Bob Welch, Peter Green and to a lesser known extent Danny Kirwin and Jeremy Spencer. Beatles-John, Paul, George and Ringo...you know, The Beatles And number one on my list...The Eagles.  Glenn Frey and Don Henley get most the credit but Randy Meisner, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt have all sung lead on hit records.  The deciding factor for me when it comes to placing  The Eagles ahead of the other competition on this list...The varied styles of the singers.  Vocally, they have been a very versatile American Band. So there you go...that's The List!

The 80's 5 Best Solo Artists

Okay, let me get to the point.  Sting, Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins and Bruce Springsteen were my choices for the 5 Best Solo Artists of the 80's.  The Boss was number one, perhaps the name has something to do with it.  Apparently he was "The Boss of Me."  I am most  curious to know who you think I missed on this list.  I am standing by!  Tomorrow join me at 4 for the best "Dynamic Duos" on Rock Guitar.  By the Way, It's 3 days in a row on The List for the guy who occupies the top spot!

Top 5 Solo Artists of the 70's

Today on The List I laid out my choices for the most celebrated, decorated, and sometimes inebriated solo artists from the 70's.  Not on The List; McCartney (Wings was a band), John Lennon (he never really engaged after the Beatles) Billy Joel (too uneven) Rod Stewart ('I'll never forgive him for "Do You Think I'm Sexy) and Bruce Springsteen...wait for the 80's tomorrow.  So here you go, my top 5; Neil Young, Bob Seger, Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton and number one goes to Elton John.  Elton ruled the decade with 7 number one albums including the first to ever debut at number 1..."Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy."  He sold out Stadiums and Arenas all over the world and turned out his best work (an average of 1 album each 6 months) while he was emerging as the biggest pop/rock star on the planet.  There, I've said my peace.  It's your turn.

Rock's Greatest Album Covers

Sgt Pepper-It featured a colorful collage of life-sized cardboard models of famous people on the front of the album cover and lyrics printed on the back cover, the first time this had been done on a British pop LP.  It introduced us to the full “liner note” album experience Sticky Fingers-The artwork for Sticky Fingers — which, on the original vinyl release, featured a working zipper that opened to reveal cotton briefs (rubber stamped "THIS PHOTOGRAPH MAY NOT BE-ETC.") — was conceived by American pop artist Andy Warhol.  The cover, a photo of a  crotch clad in tight blue jeans, was assumed by many fans to be an image of Mick Jagger, however the people actually involved at the time of the photo shoot claim that Warhol had several different men photographed (Jagger was not among them) and never revealed which shots he used. Escape-Hello Starship Scarab Beetle!  The scarab beetle is a symbol of the Egyptian god, Khepri, who in turn is a symbol of rebirth, the sun, and creation.  Steve Perry had now been with the band a handful of years and the transition from Jazz Fusion/Progressive Rock was now complete.   With Jonathan Cain replacing Greg Rolie in the band on keyboards, Journey was reborn as Pop/Rock Superstars! Houses of the Holy-The cover art for Houses of the Holy was inspired by the ending of Arthur C. Clarke's novel Childhoods End… (The ending involves several hundred million naked children, only slightly and physically resembling the human race in basic forms.) It is a collage of several photographs which were taken at the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland.  Jimmy Page has stated that the album cover was actually the second version submitted , the first by artist Storm Thorgerson, featured an electric green tennis court with a tennis racquet on it. Furious that Thorgerson was implying their music sounded like a "racket", the band fired him and hired Powell in his place in 1974, the album was nominated for a Grammy in the category of best album package. Who’s Next-What does the Monolith the Who are taking a leak  on represent?  Is it a message to 2001: A Space Odyssey Director Stanley Kubrick (Remember the Black Monolith in the film) who declined the band’s offer to direct an earlier version of Tommy?  Ken Russell helmed the film when it was released in 1975.  Or, is it a statement to the “Monolith” that is the establishment and conventional machinations of society.  It tops my list of Rocks Greatest Album Covers.

Rocks Greatest Trios

Today on "The List"-I featured Rock's Greatest Trios.  Only 5 made the cut and I feel fairly confident the best 5 populate this list of mine today.  So here you go 5-The Police-When I think of  The Police as players...precision comes to mind.  They kick off The List today. 4-Rush-Perhaps rocks best drummer in Neil Peart and underrated players in Geddy on bass and Alex on guitar.  Put em together and you've got some power coming at us from north of the border 3-ZZ Top-Texas blues with a rock edge...and world class beards! 2-The Jimi Hendrix Experience-All 3 members are now gone...an interesting contrast between The Experience and their contemporaries below.  The final gig for the band by the way was here in Denver in 1969 at the Mile Hi Pop Festival. 1-Cream-Clapton easily puts them over the top.  And that's not discounting the Bass and Vocals of Jack Bruce and Ginger Bakers powerful drumming. Insert your thoughts below...thanks!

Good Times Bad Times-Led Zeppelin (Rocks Best Drum Triplets) Mississippi Queen-Mountain (Rocks Best Two and a Half minute song)-Plus, it has Cowbell!  Don’t Stop Believing-Journey (Rocks Best Power Ballad) Jessica-Allman Brothers Band (Rocks Best Driving Song) Desire-U2 (Best U2 song to use the Bo Diddley Beat) That's it, that's The List.  Tomorrow at 4-They are music’s Greatest Arena Rockers-Singers with voices so strong…they could power a small town, fronting bands which define arena rock.  One female makes the list…and the top spot goes to a guy who was actually in two bands simultaneously.

Memorable Music Moments in Major Motion Pictures

A well placed song in a movie can truly pack an emotional punch.  Tears, laughter, wonder, joy can all be inspired by awesome rock and roll product placement.  Today on The List-7 of the most memorable songs from memorable movie moments-
  •  You Can't Always Get What You Want-Rolling Stones-Big Chill/Perfectly sets the tone of the movie
  • Eye of the Tiger-Survivor-Rocky III/Makes us want to punch the crap out of a side of beef
  • Twist and Shout-Beatles-Ferris Buellers Day Off/Matthew Broderick Lip Synchs and the whole City of Chicago is in
  • In Your Eyes-Peter Gabriel-Say Anything/I think I fell in love with John Cusack when he went Boombox
  • Tiny Dancer-Elton John-Almost Famous/Leave it to Cameron Crowe to turn an Elton John song into the new 99 bottles of beer on the wall
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady-Aerosmith-Mrs. Doubtfire/If I have to watch Robin Williams dance in a Fat Granny/Nanny/Tranny suit, at least give me a great rock vocal to go along with it
  • Bohemian Rhapsody-Queen-Waynes World/The 8 Track properly inserted into Garth's Mirth mobile...let the headbangin' fun begin
Not on this list-Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open the Door'  I omitted it in protest of it's constant appearance in films!  What would you add?
