  1. Stevie Ray Vaughan Dave Gilmour
  2. Well, definitely not one of the 'best' bands, but certainly one of the most influential bands of the 70's was KISS. It's a dubious honor, though, because what they spawned was 80's big hair metal. There's no denying it, though. Hundreds of teenage boys picked up guitars because they wanted to be Ace Frehley or Paul Stanley. Those boys in the late 70's became the 80's Quiet Riots, Warrents, Poisons, Ratts, Motley Crues, Cinderellas, Skid Rows, etc, etc, etc. Aside from a few pretty good guitarists, this genre provided absoluely nothing to the evolution of rock and roll.

  6. This is perfectly true, of course. I was just pointing out the irony, I suppose.
  7. Namaste, friends. I'm going to start this thread, wherein each week, I will post a One Hit Wonder. It's always been my favorite part of the music scene. While the Fleetwood Macs and Elton Johns and Doobs and Eagles were maintaining their places at the top of the charts, along come those odds and ends, on the fringes of the music world, to unseat the perrenial chart toppers for a while. Sometimes they would hit the top ten, maybe even number one. Then, just as quickly, they were gone, if not from music, from the charts. It always fascinated me. And, there a lot of them. Really, rea
