Always a fan of the Winters .... just great players .... Johnny once said after some time spent with Jimi in NYC he figured he was best he had heard ..... Clapton on top of heap for me though .... not sure what genre but Nitty Gritty Dirt Band album Uncle Charlie and his Dog Teddy was one of the first LP’s I wore out ... couple JJW songs found on it ....

Thnak you for reminding me of JW . I still have and playthe album I bought on Kingsland Highroad Market in 1971 . It was secondhand then and 50years later its proven to be a good survivor.

someone should surely say it for Chuck Berry ?

Unbelievable, I was just thinking about posting for Chuck Berry. I love his stuff!
Especially his strut.

one night back in the late 20thcentury was walking back fromputtingbike in its lockup and on the pavement in front of me were three teenagers practising their rap numbers .. unaware of approaching almost old man with longhair. What do youthink man ? one said to his friend apropos of his tedious wordy rap .. Crap I said too many words andthen did a quick impromptu No Money Down. They were so blown away they forgot to go South East London on me.There are no verbal redundacies in a Chuck Berry song-makes him one of the alltime great songwriters..

Well I am a fan of good Aussie pub rock. We had some really good bands here during the 70s and 80s. The bands had to be good as everything was performed live, at many of our local clubs and pubs. Those bands included AC DC, Cold Chisel, Midnight Oil, Australian Crawl, Icehouse, and my favourite The Angels (known in the US as Angel City). Due to poor management and poor record deals the Angels never made it big outside Australia, but they were for many years the top paid band in oz, and no one who attended one of their live performances would ever forget it.

I never saw the Party Boys live but Rose Tattoo were a really good band. I met their lead singer Angry Anderson, who was riding a Harley, when he booked into the motel room next to me on a ride from Sydney to Melbourne. He was a really nice guy, not much waffle in person. There were many other good bands that I did not mention. New Zealand band Dragon also performed a lot here.

The music scene in Australia from about 1970 through to the mid 90s was dominated by pub rock. Almost every decent pub had live music at least a couple of nights a week. The better venues had the better bands. By visiting different pubs you could listen to live music 7 days a week. It is generally thought that random breath testing and noise complaints killed off pub rock and live music here. From what I understand Australia was the only country to have such a vibrant live music scene at that time.

As mentioned by TS above, rewind a few years and there was a very vibrant pub band scene (though most playing covers). In my local high street Friday and Saturday could see a choice of bands across 3-4 different pubs, weekdays you'd have to drive (or ride) a few miles further, but never too far. Sadly now most pubs look to food as their prime earner, 'gastro' pubs abound and music is very thin on the ground...

Sorry to hear that but Steve Gibbons used to be well worth the treck across London toget to the Half Moon at Putney... His vinyl and top of the pops exposure never got remotely close to his small venue stuff.

No mention of the Who an outstanding live band when on the road or otherwise out ofthe recording studio

The Tavern I worked at to supplement our income during early years of marriage featured live bands Thursday - Saturday ,the nights I trucked beer to the masses .... one band stuck out as sublime , was called The Oakley Band , googled them few years ago and an executive working with Sambian cymbal company said , he had heard all the great rock bands live at one time or other and the Oakley Band was best live act he had ever listened to , they played once a month where I worked , great times ..... sadly Ritchie Oakley passed a few years ago , some members still breath and occasionally we go see see them in the city when they play at an underground bar Saturday afternoons , vocalist and drummer in that group and they have not forgotten how to rock .....

The allman brothers - When clapton heard duane play at muscle shoals studio, he asked him to play on the Layla & other love songs album. I think duane played a gig or two with the band after that, then left. When asked about why he didn't stay with Clapton, he reputedly said, "Eric ain't got nuthin' on Dickie". And he does not, and I'm a fan of clapton as well. The Allmans are probably my favorite band.

Buffalo Springfield- They broke up because there wasn't a band strong enough to contain the egos of both Neil Young and Steven Stills for any length of time.

Jeff Beck- Needs no explanation. Jeff Beck plays music that whales can understand...

Albert Lee- British musician who fell in love with american country music and was opposite of the "british invasion". He didn't bring the british music scene here, he came to join the american music scene he loved... and the guy burns it up.

Early Eagles- With Bernie Leadon on bass and banjo, Don Felder's burnin' guitar, Al Perkins on pedal steel. They had finally perfected their immitation of the flying burrito brothers. The "On the border" album is a masterpiece that steers clear of the pop rock genre they later embraced without Leadon, Felder, and Perkins.

The Beatles- You may like other music more, but nobody broke more ground musically.

Here's one that I think is particularly relevant to (many of) us old brit bike riders.

Apparently Toby Keith wrote it for Clint after Toby asked him how he kept going (meaning making "the Mule")
Clint's reply was "I won't let the old man in!"
It was subsequently used for the title role in that movie.

I lived in Seattle most of my life. Grunge was basically Pub Rockand the scene was awesome. And my transport to shows was pretty much always the same mk2 I have now.

Mother Love Bone aka Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Nirvana, Hammerbox, Sky Cries Mary, Death Cab for Cutie and many many more were all seen in bars there.

Much fun.
