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.
