    Ragged Glory and Le Noise totally stand up to his earlier work.

    OMG. He blows chunks. Just because he uses a tele doesn't make him the "Boss".

    Since I've only seen one other mention, Robin Trower. He's still putting out great albums and still tours a bit. He's even singing these days. This one's from about 6 years ago:

    There is no other band i could compare to TP & HB, they just kept the good stuff coming and filled stadiums for about 40 years, just phenomenal. Tom's passing was such a tragedy; who knows how much good music he still had in him.

    Ding ding ding. I think Beck is the over all winner. For what he does, the guy is truly better than ever and it is just amazing.

    That's in their classic period. Notable is that from the 3rd album up they had a different sound.

    Later they reformed and had a couple of studio albums, and a lot of live albums (some of older concerts).

    Briefly mentioned earlier, but Wire still amaze me.

    3 of the 4 original members from 1976, and consistently great LPs being regularly released. They kick arse live, and retain their distinctive sound.

    Ugly Kid Joe's latest effort "Uglier Than They Used To Be" kicks butt. Some of you are into heavy music and UKJ doesn't disappoint.

    Do you mean 5 years or 40 years? Didn't adapt means stagnation. Most bands listed in these posts had a run and maybe a comeback. None have been consistently as creative as TODD RUNDGREN or FRANK ZAPPA.

    Dylan. My favorite period is from Oh Mercy (1989) on up...

    Oh Mercy, Time Out Of Mind, Modern Times, Tempest...Bob has music in each decade that cannot be overlooked. He has a new album out in a few weeks as well.
