How does one answer such a question? My musical taste is so vast it would change daily. Currently I have Barry Manilow(don't hate you know "Mandy" gets you everytime) and NWA in my visor cd holder. I am going to give it a shot by decade.

'50s
James Brown

'60s
Greatfull Dead

'70s
Greatfull Dead
P-Funk
Black Sabbath
Pink Floyd

'80s

Countless 1 hit wonders such as the Dixie Midnight Runners, Nena, and The Jeff Healy Band just to name a few
Metalica
NWA
Jimmy Buffet
U2

'90s
Beastie Boys
Phish
Snoop Dogg-Dr Dre
Pearl Jam
Green Day
Dave Mathews

For me, I think "favorite bands" means "who's your favorite bands right now". Hell, Nirvana and Metallica are probably the two bands that affected me more than any others. I love them. But these days, I'm not listening to them.

50 Cent
P.O.D.
Eminem

Jay-Z
Nelly
Busta Rhymes
Juvenile
Ludacris

DMX

And I probably forgot some people. :)

Have you seen the new CCR? (Creedance Clearwater Revisted) It features 2 of the original band members along with a new singer who sounds just like Fogarty did when they were recording their classic material! I'm usually not much for bands with new lead singers....but these guys are definitely worth checking out if you have the opportunity!

You just have to throw in Bob Dylan to this list. The Beatles admited that it was Bob that inspired them to make the switch from bubble gum rock to rock and roll.

You can go all the way back to neanderthals saying who influenced who in music. Sure, without Chuck Berry, or BB King you wouldn't have the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, who were responsible for bands like Aerosmith, who were responsible for bands like Guns' n Roses. But even BB King had influences, like Robert Johnson, so without him, BB might not have had his sound, and music wouldn't sound like it does today. You can go on and on back, saying the artist/band prior is better than the band that came out 10 years later, cause without the predecessor the latest wouldn't be the greatest, but personally, I think it depends on which generation you're asking. It's funny, music is a challenging, creative, and innovative form of expression, and the further we go along with it, and the more advanced it gets, the more people say it's 'not as good'. Not as good as a stripped down set with one or two guitars, a bass, and a drum. Sorry, but they said the same things about color tv's and stereo's. "Who needs a color tv?" "Nobody will ever use a cassette player in their home." If we'd listened, we'd still be watching Ozzie and Harriet.:rolleyes: I guess I'm trying to say appreciate music for where it's come from and for where it's going. There's WAY too much of it to listen to from too many generations to label one decade as 'the best'. Rock on........:cool:

Personally, I liked Eddie Van Halen's sound in the late 70's - mid 80's, it just had this heavy crunch to it. Like Hendrix, people are still trying to figure out how he did/does some of the stuff on a guitar.:rocker:

Hellion
04-14-2003, 06:24 PM
I don't think anyone here is saying that one decade of music is better than any anothers. The quality of the music depends on the taste of the person who's listening. Like women it depends on whether you like blondes over brunettes or vise versa. It's all based on opinion and taste.

As far as influances go, sure I guess you could go all the way back to caveman days, it's all related in some form or another but to say that Bob Dylan or the Beatles were influanced by Mukwak and Tunka from the northern tribe of the Oockoo cave bear clan in 3000 bc is a bit of a stretch don't ya think?
:goof:

Oh and as far as great gutair players go, I think Randy Rhoads was one who was great, and on his why to be legendary before his untimely death.

Ozzy is my all time favorite.(I have one of his harmonicas from a show)
Disturbed is next in line. After that there are many

Saliva
KoRn
Streromud
Godsmack
Manson
Puddle Of Mud
Rob Zomibe
Drowning Pool (it's sad that Dave is no longer with us)

There are many others as well. I always try to go to Ozzfest every year but I missed it last year. But this year I will go August 24th in Charoltte, NC

I heard an interveiw with Lionel Ritchie the other day, and couldn't beleave what i heard. Rob Zombie is colaborating with him on covering one of his songs, and may be the biggest Lionel fan in the world. Apparently Rob invited Lionel back to his house to show off his shrine to him. Differint strokes i guess.

That would be great. Zombie has the sound to fit with the band too. But in a way if may not be good for the rest of Drowning Pool because in a way it would simply turn into his band and not Drowning Pool.

Sure this was a long long time ago but how many Black Sabbath songs can you think of that they did after they booted Ozzy? I don't know the name of even one. There was no Sabbath without him IMHO.

I agree Warf,
Heaven and Hell was a kickass album, There was alot of great songs on there, infact Heaven and Hell was the 2nd bass line I learned how to play.
I thought I'd be disappointed after Ozzy was out, but Ronnie James Dio did a great job.
