Well, I am up for giving most music a listen, at least once. I'm not a big Prog-rock fan in general, except for Pink Floyd and Yes, but if that's not one of JT's typical albums, I'd give it a try. Just never really cared much for their music or Ian Anderson's voice, so never got into them. But I thank you for the recommendation!

Well heck, if you like Yes there's hope for you and prog yet :) (I still like to listen to Relayer and Going For the One--"To Be Over" is one of my all-time faves--as far as recent Yes Magnification started to grow on me after several listens--at least a few tracks). Just another word about Heavy Horses: It captures them/Anderson more in one of their/his folk-rock stages. Of course there are prog elements--making it of course uniquely Jethro Tull folk-rock.

Since I created my list back in September I discovered Neurosis.

I've placed them at #10 for now, but it's harder with bands you haven't listened to for as long.

Cheers, Richard

GarionOrb, you've got one slot yet to fill. The #7 band on your list, Rolling Stones, are of course Brits.

Crap...I had a feeling I should've looked up their nationality first! Hmm, I suppose I would add Pearl Jam in their place.

Michael, 3 cheers for J. Geils Band! I saw them at the Auditorium in Chicago in 1975, and it was one of the best rock concerts I've ever seen.

War may not show up on some lists because it was originally Eric Burdon's band, and he of course was British.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 10, 2012 2:01:39 PM PDT
yEAH R.Hutcinson their live shows are a must see boogie-woogie rythm and blues.They were my first concert in 1972 they played at my high school auditorium and i became a life long fan.

I'm not even talking about the Eric Burdon War.I loved the" The Wold Is A Ghetto" Slippin Into Darkness " Band/Albums are great stuff.

Michael, "Low Rider" is my favorite!

I saw the band in maybe '97 or so in Tucson with just the original singer (not Burdon, the one on those hits) and a bunch of young guys. It was great!

R. Hutchinson,
I was most likely at that same J. Geils Band show @ The Auditorium. They played there at least three consecutive
Octobers (maybe more), then switched to the bigger Aragon Brawlroom.
At the Auditorium (still my favorite concert hall), I saw Mark-Almond / Gentle Giant / Joe Vitale's Madmen each
open for J Geils. Do you remember who you saw?
Except for Cheap Trick in their pre-fame club days, J. Geils was the most exciting live band I've ever seen.

Two Tub, it was Marc Almond. It was the "Nightmares" tour, 1975. Peter Wolf was a great frontman!

Another great show I saw at the Auditorium was Grace Slick-Paul Kantner. Also Leo Kottke when he was still playing at his wildest, breaking strings and ripping them out and playing on... He had to play more tamely later, he was destroying his hands.

And I saw the Dead play one of their first concerts after the Vacation of '74-'76 in June or so of '76.
