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.

Absolutely.

Ozzy and Dio were at their best w/Sabbath; conversely, any Sabbath w/o Dio or Ozzy doesn't even sound like Sabbath to me.

A case could definitely be made for this.

Ha. Yeah, we play Bridge To Better Days on the reg during long ass bar gigs, usually segue into it from Five To One.

I liked him a lot better before he hooked up with Caveman Shirley. He was a bit more raw back then.

I'm a big Marc Ford fan, Mick Taylor, Jeff Beck, Peter Green.

You ever check out the Steepwater Band??

FYP for me.

I was a huge Rainbow fan in high school and was blown away when "Heaven and Hell" came out a couple years later. I also put "Mob Rules" just a slight notch below H&H. "Dehumanizer" and "The Devil You Know" aren't bad; to me, they just aren't up to the same level. Like htismaqe said, the bar was set really high.

Not really, not that haven't been revealed over the years.

By this point, everyone pretty much knows that Tom recorded the entire record himself, in his basement, on a Scully 12 track machine that he modified.

He built the power soak so that he could record non-Master volume Marshall 1959 amps with the volume knobs cranked, which made for his "unique" sound. He played all the instruments on every track save for one, in which his friend Jim Messina played drums.

He was a keyboardist by nature but B. Goudreau taught him to play guitar. And not ironically, he sounded like Fece (although Fece didn't play on the first record).

He double tracked Brad Delp's vocals on every song but the second take, he'd speed up the tape machine by 5%, then play it back in normal speed. This made for the "wider", "chorused", signature vocal sound.

Tom was really an innovator and the production on that first record, unlike many albums from the 70's and 80's, really stands the test of time as one of the best produced rock albums ever.

So good that the Rockman and the 80's recording techniques evolved in his wake.

Thanks, Tom.

We don't have that one yet. I've heard it's really good.

I find myself fast forwarding whenever something from Master Of the Moon comes on, though.

I really don't like the way they handled firing Marc in '97...

What happened with Ed and Marc in '06 on the 'reunion tour'??

Let's get some Crowes dirt going...

Thanks, Tom.

The Rockman has its place in rock music history. Hysteria wouldn't be the same if Def Leppard had used guitar amps instead of modified Rockman's. Neither would the Theme from Top Gun, in which Steve Stevens used a Rockman.

It's all over 80's music and helped to make the 80's sound as they do.

They did? What the ****?

That record was Ansley Dunbar, Neil Murray, John Sykes and obviously, David Coverdale, save for the guitar solo by Adrian Vandenberg on "Here I Go Again".

They must have put Sarzo, Aldridge and Campbell's name on some of the albums and CD's. I know mine had the real players on the CD jacket.

Weird.
