Zep, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Queen, and the Allman brothers are probably it for me since we dont seem to count backing band situations like Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet band or the Jimi Hendrix experience or whatever....

Jimi's playing was on a whole other level.

Sorry for not visiting my own thread. Saying Jimi's guitar was the whole music isn't really true. Mitch Mitchell was an amazing drummer.

Yeh, I don't know about you, but that riffing style gets old after a while. I'd have to say they're the band on this list that I need a break from the most often.

They are great musicians - their songwriting is a bit lacking despite great lyrics.

The Who had these moments that no other band could do, like the beginning of The Punk and the Godfather, where Entwistle starts picking up clumps of bass strings… only The Who could do that.

Well I beg to differ.

Tool has great music and great lyrics...

Their music is different to any shit out there, they play in weird time signatures that would sound awful with lesser bands.

Danny Carey is a BEAST.

Backstreet Boys aren't in the poll, therefore not voting.

Quadrophenia's got a lot of incredible moments by each band member.

Regarding this: Not only was Mitchell great, but the sound changed alot with Miles and Cox. Redding was a guitarist turned bassplayer for the Experience. Played basic, but melodic, Cox was a pocketing funker. They were way tighter, but it took away from Hendrix' free flowing style.

What's your #1 band.

If I were to try to rank bands objectively, I'd rank The Beatles #1. My all-time favorite band is The Who.
