my latest inclusion of 3 piece bands I enjoy are
primus and the dead presidents
StrangerNY ... No doubt it was Budgie that did it for you
CCR was a three piece band, for a decent length of time. Tom had been kicked out and JC and the other 2 kept going, big tour, seemingly none the worst for it.
XTC was a 3 piece band after Terry Chambers got married and left the band. Of course they did not tour, so the "validity" of 3 members was never tested in this way.
I mean, CSN always had support from other musicians, at least during the bulk of the shows. So, this is how you define things. I mean, are we going to say Three Dog Night is a 3 piecer? I don't think so.
On the other hand, John Hiatt and Joe Ely (and a third fellow, sometimes Lyle Lovett) validly entertained - just the three musicians.
Ha, that was who I was going to mention when I then decided on The Blue Nile. They did do some radio appearances for Oranges and Lemons, even going on Letterman.
In the early 90s I liked Buffalo Tom and Urge Overkill although the latter added a fourth member live the one time I saw them.
Presidents of the United States of America
As far as the bands I like/love goes:
The classic line-up of The James Gang
Three Dog Night
Ben Folds Five
I saw them in Montreal in 93. They were opening for Blind Melon ... They stole the show and been a fan since then. It's bad indeed they have some great songs that became hits in Canada and Australia. They have pretty good acoustic stuff too.
New song came out yesterday from Richie Kotzen in his 3 piece band.
Vocals are impressive.
Gosh, like time since I've thought about Raven.
I'll mention Vardis who are very much of the same era but a) I did see once and b) use telecasters so perhaps more pertinent here although c) still a three piece band. I think Raven were Geordies and a bit more heavy metal, Vardis from Yorkshire but both three piece NWOBHM bands from Northern England specialising in fast rock.
My 16 year old self salutes you!
The guitarist for Raven plays a Telecaster too!
Quick Google didn't suggest that but all to the good!
...plus she's got some good blues guitar instruction vids.
+1...and one of the loudest live shows I've attended. Never heard keyboards at that volume before or since.
You posted lots of good stuff, but you win for fIREHOSE and Agent Orange.
Of course, fIREHOSE sprung from the ashes of another, already-mentioned, three piece, the amazing Minutemen (RIP, D. Boon.)
My 20 year old daughter just turned me onto The Chats. Fun stuff. Reminds me of Toy Dolls a bit. Young, loud and snotty rock and roll.
I saw fIREHOSE twice. They were a blast, and Mike Watt and George Hurley are one of THE finest rhythm sections ever.
