Post your top 5 rock bands of all time

I'm interested in seeing what era most people's favorites come from and if there are more US bands or UK bands (or Scandinavian if you're Reaper16)

Clean sweep for the Brits for me.

1. The Beatles
2. Rolling Stones
3. Led Zep
4. Pink Floyd
5. The Who

Define band however you want. If you want to throw Elvis on your list, do it.

How about you all go into your Itunes and look up your most played bands. See what actually comes up.
I've seen worse:

Puddle of Mudd, Nirvana, Disturbed?

I'd rather have Billy and Buddy.

To me, it goes like this :

Band Of Gypsys>Cry Of Love Band>The Experience.

Flame away.

I had a Facebook friend make that same argument last week.

that's Jimi on bass (a lot of Electric Ladyland was - Noel is on Crosstown Traffic, Little Miss Strange, Voodoo Child (Slight Return) and Burning of the Midnight Lamp. Jack Casady played on Voodoo Chile, there's no bass on Rainy Day Dream Away or Still Raining Still Dreaming, and Jimi did the rest himself - Mike Finnegan plays a walking bass on the Hammond Organ on Raindy Day and still Raining, and he's actually in the studio w/Trampled Under Foot right now, a little KC connection, fyi)

But that awesome ass bass solo in 1983 is totally Jimi.

Noel Redding was a hack.

Hells yes - I had never really played much before we started DW, and the original plan was for me and Ryan to play guitar, but we couldn't find a bass player, and we were writing songs and gigs were booked, so...crash course.

It's a different mentality than guitar; much more rhythmic, and subtle. The big thing for me was how to not attack a bass the way you might a guitar, like letting the notes breathe and be full. especially in a trio.

But Noel Redding, he seemed to never really make the switch from guitar to bass. He thought he was a star in his own right, equal to Hendrix, and that he would quit and be the lead guitar and vocal of his own band, Fat Mattress.

How many Fat Mattress records you own??

Yeah, I have the old Gene Simmons demos and the Cherokee Studios tracks from '75 - they pretty much improved each song, except for Beats Working and She's A/The Woman, I like the original lyrics to each one better. And in She's The Woman, the old one had the bridge from Mean Street in it, so the new one has a twist in it.

But musically, they're on top of their game. Never sounded better, and really don't miss ol' what's his name at all.

I was always into different music outside of my core hard rock/metal tastes, whether it was classical or jazz or whatever, and we were always adding funk, reggae, and blues (anything you could toke to really ) elements to the stuff we were writing.

Over the years, I developed a certain somewhat percussive, hybrid rhythm/lead style on the guitar and never did really develop my lead "chops" because I'm just not dexterous enough. Ironically, I've found that this Neil Young-style hackjob guitar style translates really well to the bass.
