The Byrds-Pioneers in folk and country rock.¬† With Roger McGuinn's mastery of the 12 string and those rich harmonies, the Byrds set the stage for for a folk rock explosion.¬† And nobody covered a Bob Dylan song better!
The Clash-The Clash took the raw anger of British punk and worked it into a political and aesthetic agenda. Outstripping all of their peers in terms of length and depth of career, the Clash were rebels with a cause...(an excerpt from Rolling Stone Magazine)¬†
The Doors-Jim Morrison's flailing rage against seemingly everything fueled one of the truly unforgettable bands of our lifetime.
The Eagles-They took what The Byrds started and morphed into the "musical score" for all of us who came of age in the 70's.¬†
and finally the big three "The" bands...
The Rolling Stones
