    I forgot Beach Boys and Velvet Underground in my serious answer

    I also noticed that many people are mention solo artists so I think its worth to mention

    Dylan and Marley IMO better than both LZ and the Beatles

    Muddy Waters, 2pac, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Prince, MJ, Iggy Pop

    I did not mention band and artists that have been mentioned a lot in this thread on purpose not that I think they do not deserve to be in the debate

    Heading down the eclectic...

    Zepplin, Beatles, Floyd are all up there...but for my personal favorites, the closest one gets to main stream are SRV and Zappa. Social Distortion, Sabbath, Dead Kennedys, Napalm Death, Skatalites, Wu-Tang Clan, among others are on my list. Mostly driven by mood, songs I enjoy, etc.

    If I was to go purely on musicianship SRV is still at the top, but the list may be quite different.

    SRV definitely a classic. Have you ever listened to Joe Bonamassa?

    I had to. :D

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/31kdfa_iCis" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Being a younger generation metal fan I cant say LZ would be the best evar (sic) since there are too many variables involved. Rock would definitely be behind w/o them. Their inspiration is/was tremendous.

    Personally I like Rush a tad more than LZ. Not much else for classic rock. NO Stones. NO Floyd. I prefer music to be on the upbeat side. I fall asleep on the slower stuff. Oh, and I did smoke a lot of weed and STILL dont like Pink Floyd.

    Iron Maiden would definitely be in my list.
    I'm a ******bag in real life so I dont have to be one on the interwebz.

    Agreed...

    I'd toss in Mad Season and Temple of the Dog...for the grunge factor.

    Oh Pantera as well.

    I think any band that you walk into say a store and hear a song you've never heard and say within the first minute-that sounds like .... playing this song-is a good musician/group.
    I'm a huge Zeppelin fan, too bad all the theft accusations. Doors, Who, GNR, Alice in Chains etc. I've considered shelling out the money to do one of those meet the artist before the concert tickets for Brian Setzer, but just too expensive. I think his guitar style, choice of guitar-just so raw and the ability to front a 18 piece orchestra with just a electric guitar going through a vintage Bassman amp and echoplex-mad skills.

    Very hard to pick one without some rules. Therefore, if the requirement were to be -

    If you could only listen to that band the rest of your life, you'd be OK with it.

    My list would include (in no particular order):

    - Floyd
    - Zepplin
    - Thin Lizzy (extremely underrated)
    - The Police
    - Rolling Stones
    - Beatles
    - Lynard Skynard
    - Neil Young
    - Fleetwood Mac (very wide range of styles including all the pre-Buckingham/Nicks days)

    Parliament Funkadelic
    The Black Keys
    The White Stripes
    Santana
    The "Stones"
    PinkFloyd
    RHCP
    Bob Marley & The Wailers
    Rush
    Eric B. & Rakim
    & Classic House music!

    Plug in, tune out, and ride!

    How bizarre, just after I posted that old picture taken just before the day the music died.
    I'm headed up the hill, The Tech Guy show just ended on KFI, so I tuned my iHeartradio to local KGO.
    Paul kantner was interviewed on KGO during the 2:06 PM segment January 13th with Brian Copeland.
    They talked about "Volunteers for America" and Altamont. And how that should be the anthem of the occupy movement, acid and more. Paul is a very interesting person and had a lot to say. The Jefferson Starship are live at the rRezz room Jan 17th through the 20th in San Francisco.

    Does any one else remember Hot Tuna at the Chateau Liberté on the Old Santa Cruz highway?

    I like Led Zep...from way back.
    I have a pretty good music knowledge.
    Actually...I don't like to put one band over another.
    The Hives is a good group too.
    ...ever heard,"Take back the toys?"
    So is Arch Enemy with the Queen of Scream...and Fear Factory too.

    If we're going to start adding Honorable Mentions, then I think you have to include the Dead!

    "They're not the best at what they do, they're the only ones that do what they do." ~ Bill Graham

    I'm also a big Pixies fan. At the very least, they're the greatest college band ever!

    Huge Zeppelin fan.

    Gotta give a mention to Iced Earth. It amazes me that this band never gets mentioned. One of the best metal bands ever IMO

    It's good, but it's not Iron Maiden good, especially with Barlow back. He's not anywhere near as good as he used to be unfortunately. Before he left I'd agree, that is solid and the videos prove it. Somehow Iron Maiden has kept the intensity and the sound live.

    Barlow actually left again. Started a new band called Ashes of Ares, but no albums out yet. I agree they aren't quite on Maiden's level, but Horror Show is a damn amazing album
