Damn how did I forget Leonard Cohen?
I could go with him and Tom Waits.
Just skip the other ten!
OK Rumplestiltskin here, Yawn, gotta get me some coffee...
Rag n Bone Man
...where's the durn coffee...
ok, my list is pretty mundane in the sense that it repeats stuff you've already seen in the previous posts - but I kept my list for the purpose of thinking about it musically, if I wandered off into lyrics that would be something else, the same if I were to claim the music that my children love...plus there's plenty of jazz that I've wandered around in, but that's a whole nother thing:
Buffalo Springfield/CSN/and that whole family tree
Allman Brothers Band
Lowell George/Little Feat
The first band I went to see was The Faces, so by association that gives me The Stones, Dylan, Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry, Motown and a whole bunch of other influences but other than that;
Nine Below Zero
Hall & Oates
Ian Dury & The Blockheads, in fact anyone appearing on the first two Stiff Records tours, Nick Lowe, Rockpile, Elvis Costello etc.
Average White Band
If you ask me again in ten minutes half of them will probably have changed
12 is impossible so I've split them into US/UKish
Iggy (Pop) &/or the Stooges
Man or Astroman?
The Damned (currently no.1 in the UK singles chart)
Siouxsie & the Banshees
I probably need another list, for the ones I forgot before:
Beefheart/Zoot Horn Rollo/Antennae Jimmy Semens
Small Faces/Faces/Humble Pie
Congratulations on whittling it down. The choices are too hard and I admire your discipline. AND, 9 of your 12 would happily reside on a list I could agree with. If I were exposed to more music, I might accept 11 of 12.
Izzy was the coolest member of his famous group-and he walked away right at the height of their popularity and never looked back.
Also he's been putting out awesome solo albums regularly, since
Billy F Gibbons
Ronnie Van Zandt
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Thanks for the replies!
Got to go for a "baker's dozen":
Dire Straits - Mark Knopfler
The Beatles - Paul McCartney
Pink Floyd - David Gilmour
The Beach Boys
Sarah McLachlan - most beautiful voice I've ever heard. Stunning.
Joni Mitchell - up to, and including, Hejira.
Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young - in particular, Stills and Young
1. Pink Floyd
2. Jimi Hendrix
3. Camper Van Beethoven
4. Dwight Yoakam
5. The Doors
6. Robert Johnson
7. Lynyrd Skynyrd
8. The Police
9. Stevie Ray Vaughan
10. Credence Clearwater Revival
11. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
12. Chuck Berry
Ask me again in 10 minutes and it will probably change.
J Geils Band
Ryan Adams (Whiskeytown era particularly)
I'll add to this as it comes to me
