    The Who
    Steely Dan
    Eagles
    David Bowie

    Fleetwood Mac
    Jimi Hendrix
    Neil Young
    Bob Marley
    Black Sabbath
    Elton John
    Billy Joel

    Love
    Alice Cooper

    Santana


    Underrated Artist - Sixto Rodriguez ("Forget It" is my favorite of his)
    Underrated Songs - Harry Nilsson - Lean On Me (not the hit)
    Shawn Phillips - (Breakthrough, I Took A Walk)
    Paul McCartney - Old Siam, Sir

    There are some good non-mainstream prog rock bands like Camel, Spiro Gyra, Tai Phong, T2...


    Personally, the 60s and 70s are my aims. I like the sad songs, but I like soul/folk/funk/disco.. Vocals are very important, I like tenors and falsetto, using vibrato, quavers... Music to me is much more important than the lyrics. In fact, the rhythm of the vocal is probably more important now thta I think of it, but the quality of the voice.

    Can't wait to hear your thoughts -- I love the eclectic tastes in here!

    You want us to rank our favourite artists? OK, but after the first few it won't be totally scientific:

    Beatles
    Rolling Stones
    Led Zeppelin
    Dire Straits
    Mark Knopfler
    Genesis
    Peter Gabriel
    Phil Collins
    Eagles (in terms of the past)
    Elton John
    Bob Dylan
    Van Morrison
    Bee Gees
    ELO
    Queen
    Pink Floyd
    Neil Young
    Bob Seger
    Fleetwood Mac
    Stevie Nicks
    Eric Clapton
    David Gilmour
    Robert Plant
    Tony Banks
    Midnight Oil
    Crowded House

    Underrated artist: I think Mark Knopfler as a solo artist is not nearly as well known as he should be.

    Underrated songs - I could take a day to list them. You mention Old Siam, Sir. It certainly is. Shame the rest of that album was pretty mediocre.

    Silvertown Blues - Mark Knopfler
    Rain Fall Down - Rolling Stones
    Romance In Durango - Bob Dylan
    Nights On Broadway - Bee Gees
    Living Forever - Genesis
