forgot about Bill
Now that's getting way back there...
Trower/ Dewar/Lordan - what a combination!
Oh Maaaaan. Trower in the morning!
Rush, ZZ Top
That's far and away the best RT album.
Might not be a rock act?
You couldn't be more wrong, do your research
I see your point - but i don't really listen to much led zeppelin studio stuff. Im all about their live act - which unless robert is playing harmonica means three musicians.
In the spirit of the thread I'll throw in my #2 for hendrix.
Edit - just saw some people mentioning taste. Definitely a great way to round out my top three.
Important for your three peice to have an energetic live act and boy did they! Rory, Jimmy, and Jimi are my top three inspirations.
There are a few that I love:
Rush, King's X, KXM, and Zebra.
The thing about all three is that their music - especially Rush - didn't sound thin or fundamentally different when played live. You know, that absent rhythm guitar that was overdubbed to give the song a more complete sound.
Motorhead was kind of the same way, though a different style. Both Geddy and Lemmy made their bass lines hold more than just rhythm. So it sort of filled in the cracks when the guitarist was doing the solo.
And King's X? Their vocals - for just three guys - really set them apart.
Agree on King's X!
I digged Silverchair too back then. I wonder how they are now...
Goldilox is a perfect Song.
I don't know how often I saw them live.
Really nice Guys.
And Doug Pinnick told my Brother to be the Godfather of my son.
Goldilox is a fantastic song. And apparently a lot of people agree with you:
Although I was somewhat indifferent to Out of a Silent Planet. Gretchen Goes To Nebraska is probably their best album ever. I don't think there isn't a song on there that I don't love.
Moreover, those guys are incredible live. They are one of the very few groups whose live performances match their recorded material.
My Brother and my Cousin where two of the Singers, when this was recorded.
And he drops the mic and walks off stage!
Yea, Tab is very good. He is a regular in a club we do sound for here in Tampa, Skipper's Smokehouse ...
My vote is for Crosby, Stills & Nash. They might not fit exactly into the OP's criteria but on their first album Stephen Stills played every instrument but drums so I think an exception should be made.
