    I'm beginning to like these threads where we get to put in our two cents listing stuff.
    Now...........how about some bands that are from days gone by that alot of kids nowadays would not remember,or have never heard of? I'm an old-timer (as you may see from my list),so I'll start......these bands actually made it.
    (1) Savoy Brown
    (2) Jo Jo Gunne
    (3) Procol Harum
    (4) Trapeze
    (5) Wings
    (6) April Wine
    (7) Blue Cheer
    (8) James Gang
    (10) Mountain
    (11) Manfred Man's Earth Band
    (12) Cactus
    (13) Mahogany Rush
    (14)Free
    (15)Steppenwolf
    (16)Foghat
    (17) Thin Lizzy
    (18) Flash
    (19) Wishbone Ash
    (20) Johnny and Edgar Winter

    I'm sure that I will come back with more...but this ought to jog some memory cells.A friend and I sat down one night and tried to think of all the bands we used to listen to,and wondered,"Where are they now?"

    Tweedsville, are you a Canuck? That list has a bit of a Maple flavour.

    I'm a little younger than you two, but here's a few that made me work harder. Beside them I've put my favourite album by each.

    Change of Heart- I've never heard a better album than Smile . Recorded live to DAT in 4 days, and editted down to 72 min to fit on a CD

    Replacements/Paul Westerberg-Pleased to Meet Me
    The Pixies/Frank Black- Doolittle
    Lowest of the Low - Shakespeare My Butt
    Concrete Blonde - Free

    How about:(1) Status Quo
    (2) Badfinger
    (3) Emerson,Lake,and Palmer
    (4) MC5

    I loved Jellyfish's first album.

    How about Van Halen? Just kidding. I'm a huge VH fan, but they haven't done a damn thing in a long freakin' time.

    Smile

    Way to go Tweedvile with the Status Quo. "Pictures Of Matchstick Man"...what a great dumb riff...but so cool.

    How about :
    The Sensational Alex Harvey Band
    Budgie

    All I can think to add right now, and I'm not saying either of these were any good.

    peace.
    Please don't put CheezIts in Daddy's amplifier.
