Figured this is a better discussion then debating which "weirdo" is top of pop. Will be interesting to see which of the "greatest" overlap from across the water. Plus I am very curious what music the OT folks prefer.
The greatest bandor singer of all time?
I don't know but here some names that in my eyes have had big influences. (their music can be not so good)
And then you've classic music. Which has writing most part already from new music. Most accord etc can be found there. Even the themes.
In no particular order,
Van Halen, to name a few, bands that could stand up, sing live and did'nt need more computer power than it took to put a man on the moon to produce a sound
Some good ones in there. Love me some Zeppelin and Skynyrd.
I would add AC/DC to my list. At least they held true to their style through the years and didnt sell out like a lot of bands did. Sounded the same since day 1
