    ZZ Top is the best 3-piece band. Already been stated, but true.

    They may be the best, but he asked for my favorite.

    They are so good. I've seen them 3 times here in Australia and they were brilliant every time.
    I really like this new soundtrack album too. And they are currently in the studio working on their next album. Can't wait!!

    I keep waiting for them to break through in the States! It's taking a while, though.

    I thought it would happen a few years ago, when they got the opening slot on the Muse tour. We saw them at Madison Square Garden on that tour, but right after that date, Simon came down with bronchitis and they had to scotch the rest of the tour.

    It's frustrating to still have to explain what my Clyro t-shirts mean. They should be a household name by now!

    Well the question is my favorite...police all the way. What I like is the idea with only 3 people. It fits in an ordinary car (the reason stewart copeland put it together). There is probably a better chance to make living as a 3 piece than a 4,5 or 6 piece.
    Honorably mention : MÖtorhead

    I hate picking favorites but they make it kind of easy for me.

    I'm not a big metalhead. I love Sabbath and Motorhead (I think of them both as more heavy rock than "metal) and I enjoyed some 80s stuff like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden...Slayer...so I dig some of it, but this band High On Fire (with Matt Pike of Sleep--another three piece--on 10 string electric) is one of my current favorite bands. I'm sure not always in the mood for it, but it sure fits the bill at the right times.

    I was going to post the official video for this track--which is great and trippy as hell--but it has some nudity in it, so here.

    Warning: they are H E A V Y.

    I am very happy to have discovered these guys on Pandora several years ago. Too bad they didn't get more of a foothold in the US early on. Incredible music.

    It's strange that they aren't bigger outside Europe. They have made progress here and they packed out a venue that holds about 3500 last time they were in Melbourne.
    We can only keep spreading the word!

    Eric Johnson and the Avenue are my favorite trio.
    Rob Alexander on bass/vocals and drummer Steve Meador were EJ’s greatest foils, IMO.

    Whilst Cream is beyond doubt my No. 1 pick here .... some other UK bands deserving of a mention, apart from Robin Trower & The Police of course, include:

    Depeche Mode - not a personal fan of their early electronica but boy did they grow as a band!

    Manic Street Preachers - often augmented these days but, a massive 3 piece sound originally with a massive following over her .... and still going strong.

    Feeder and Portishead also deserving of a mention.

    But finally, who can forget .... Budgie :eek:
