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.
