Most 'soulful' rock bands?
 
Rock music isn't generally known as 'soulful' per se, but that's because most people aren't really hip to the 60s and 70s rock. Rock had plenty of soul back then, from the guitar player, the keyboard player and the singer their soul was felt. Matter of fact, I'ma even go as far as to state that rock artists from that era had more soul than the majority of today's r&b singers.

There's some obvious choices, such as Allman Brothers, CCR, Grandfunk Railroad, Animals, Led Zep, Jimi, Santana, The Who, etc.etc. and even a few today such as PJ, Soundgarden, and most recently The Black Keys.

So drop some more names, because I'm sure there's tons of others that I left off.

Joe Cocker, Sly & The Family Stone sort of bridged the gap.

How could I forget Joe!

Is Sly considered rock tho? thought about them, but wasn't sure if they classify more as a funk group.

Oh... and add Alice in Chains to the modern era. I'm listening to Man in the Box at the moment and yeah.... cat had soul.

I think Sly is overall Funk now, but before them you really didn't have anything like it so it fell in the middle, full rock band but playing soulful songs.

Probably the most obvious choice in rock history.

So pretty much any blues based rock band. Which covers a ton of ground. Any of the myriad of Clapton incarnations. SRV!

Texas Flood.

In my mind, Sly and the Family Stone were a Rhythm and Blues band through and through.

Why? They were a straight-up R&B band. The only "rock and roll" they played is what rock borrowed from R&B.
