OT: What makes a great band?


Recommended Posts

IMO

What makes a great band is a Great Bassist and Drummer. Even the crappies lead sounds great with a solid foundation, but all the guitar talent in the world won't mean anything with a solid bassist and drummer (in Rock obviously.

The person above knows what they're talking about.

For great bands I'll suggest...

Yes

The Yes Album

Fragile

Close To The Edge

Jethro Tull

Aqualung

Thick As A Brick

Passion Play (arguably their most prolific)

In both cases, these were 3 albums in a row.

And I'll give another band too....

Metallica:

Kill'Em All is the genre setter for Speed Metal.

Ride the Lightning is a classic Metal Album...

...as is Master of Puppets, considered by most as THE Metal Album ever.

And the Self-Title "Black Album" was an enormous crossover success, bringing Metal to the Masses.

Thats 4.

"...And Justice For All" will always be my favorite Metallica album. IMO, they had five before they started to go into the gutter.

Ever song on "Justice" is a classic.

And I'm not gonna name albums, but I think that the five greatest bands ever were:

1. Led Zeppelin

2. Rolling Stones

3. Black Sabbath

4. AC/DC

5. Alice In Chains

judas priest:

1. sad wings of destiny

2. unleashed in the east

3. rocka rolla

Nah, painkiller's gotta be in there.

Okay.

Maiden:

Powerslave

Piece of Mind

Killers, and even today they're coming out with strong stuff.

Overkill:

Horrorscope

Taking Over

The Years of Decay.

The thing with them is they've never released a substandard album. How many bands can honestly say they've kept a consistently high standard for 20 years?

Kreator:

Terrible Certainty

Pleasure to Kill

Violent Retribution.

5. Queen

6. Floyd

7. AC/DC

8. GNR

9. Elton John

10. Cream / Derek and the Dominos

JUST MISSED:

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

Jethro Tull

GJ&H, that's a nice list. It's good to see some respect for British musical talent on this board. 8)

1.) Allman Brothers - live at the Fillmore East

2.) Led Zep - It's all good, cant begin to pick a best

3.)Best album various artists - Woodstock

Many rock and roll hall of famers featured but my personal favorites are Alvin/TYA doing I'm Going Home and Santana's Soul Sacrifice - Michael Schrieve does things with his drum kit in that song that I still find almost impossible.
