That’s a good question. Guess it branched in to alternative, indie, metal, etc and as people became fans of the sub genres the parent genre died off.

Queen or the Eagles are more deserving of the 2 than Springsteen


:kige:

Why did you list Journey? I thought that band mostly appealed to chicks and Perry (and Springsteen) always looked like they were trying to take a crap when singing.

As to OP, do you separate singers from bands?

Rock really is guitar, bass, drums, and vocals at least and somebody like Sly & The Family Stone fits that better than a straight singer or balladeer.

First, it became a business and like the movie business it went where cost was less and risk was minimized. Rock from the 50's to 70's was rooted in US R&B. Remember Mick was an ECON major before he made the Stones big.

Those transition bands had lots of added expenses because they had added members. If you look over time it has always been to reduce staff


120 person orchestra became
60 (pre WWII) big band
30 (post WWII) big band
15 member transition band (still had brass)
7 member early rock band
4 member Rock band (Drummer, Lead Guitar, Guitar, Bass)
1 member rap

Meh. There's a lot better stuff by them. I think they were ahead of their time at the time. I'm a fan.

But that's not the reason I keep asking "what?"

Unpopular opinion but I also don’t really dig Zepplin or Pink Floyd. They’re alright but I don’t seek out their music. Just doesn’t do anything for me..

What reminds you of a bogeyman? The Offspring or the Iliad?

The way we do that is we set up a tourbament bracket for 16 bands


You hit the big 3, then add in Elvis (not a band, but he is the King), The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Allman Brothers, Beach Boys, Van Halen, Guns & Roses, Pearl Jam (have to throw in at least 1 grunge act), maybe Nirvana and Cream because they were groundbreaking... can't think of anymore off of the top of my head...
