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.

No particular order -

The Rolling Stones
ZZ Top
CCR
The Eagles
Stevie Ray Vaughn

I guess. Kind of hard to do a top 5 on this subject.

Music connects with the listener on a very deep level, something that goes beyond description. If Ratt or MC5's or Eric B. & Rakim is what makes you happy, that's great! It's not for me to judge anyone's musical taste and interest.

Since there are a lot of Beatles fans here, I have a question:

If you could only have four of their albums, which would you choose?

I know...they were pretty hot.

Aerosmith's Done With Mirrors is an example of a great album 'Ruined By Rockman'

Sure - and the Rick Allen situation lent itself even further to that recording method and it contributed to that record's overall sound and ambiance, which is way different from the first two, or even the one Mutt did before.

Not dogging it - I just prefer the sound and the playing of the first three albums over Hysteria or anything after. I know Phil Collen is a great guitarist, but without a whole bunch of Steve Clark, the thing falls flat to me. Maybe it's no coincidence that I think the best song on Hysteria is 'Armageddon It.'

maybe, indeed...

Listen to most 70's rock records and you're hearing damped drums, DI'd bass and guitar amps covered with Gobo's and in some cases, blankets.
Hey, I dig that - everyone did what needed to be done to get it done. That resulted in a lot of different sounds, awesome records.

Take Fleetwood Mac for instance - I love Rumours, Tusk, Mirage, etc. And those records are overdub city.

We're making a record right now, and I have 3 or 4 bass signals at a time and one of them is a direct through a preamp in case we wind up using a plug-in during the mixing stage...I'm just trying NOT to.

well, they couldn't use live drums, not completely. And yes, agreed, though Hysteria was probably a bad example to use.

A better one would be 'Dirty White Boy' by Foreigner - LOVE the song. Could have a ballsier guitar. The sheen washes away the ballsiness. I guess that's why I always dig the Stones; even on their poppiest dance numbers, ballads, whatever - guitar is loud and clear, front and center.

There's a difference between a "raw" performance and imperfection. Imperfection occurs when the players aren't top notch or world class. I can guarantee you that you're not walking into a session, whether it be a 70's police show or The Family Guy if you're not a world class musician that's incapable of making mistakes.

Capturing the rawness of a band is completely different, although that was as rare in 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's as it is today.

At the end of the day, the job is to entertain the audience. That's all that matter.
Well, you can't suck. That's a given...

But it seems that no one is interested in capturing the 'rawness' of a band anymore. It's disheartening.

I love Eliminator. I can appreciate what Mutt has done...but I hear the symmetry of the 'Mutt Lange Sound' through every artist he's worked with (including Shania) sans AC/DC. And to me, a producer needs to bring out what their artists sound like (Brenden O'Brien) and not impart their sound on their artist (Caveman Shirley).

It will sound slightly different every time no matter what. A lot of ears can't even tell the difference from day to day, but it's there. It's a natural byproduct of analog gear and acoustical physics.

The producer knows and can hear...that's a big reasons why even rock producers went to Rockmans and triggered drums...and why they do plug-ins and triggered drums now. Control, absolute control.
