    The doors I would say third-oh wait Hendrix. Hmm the Beatles? How about pre rocknroll? Eddie Cochran? Cliff Gallup was quite the guitar slinger. I've always been a Brian Setzer fan.

    Your asking for a band that actually knew how to play instruments then? Not like the music of today?

    Also a huge fan of house music-nothing like a chill club in SF and good house music.

    Cars had a good guitarist-Eliot Easton. Mark knoffler had a great sound. Pearl Jam. The Edge was lucky. Of course Van Halen. I guess this question depends on what type of music your talking about-

    Lots of kickass rock bands from the U.K., but I think the top honours go to Pink Floyd. In many ways not as “rockin’” as Led Zeppelin, but I am more in sync personally with Pink Floyd’s music/lyrics than Zeppelin. Personal preference.

    John Bonham Best drummer ever. Class act shutting down the band after his death knowing they would never sound the same. They prolly had a few killer albums left had he lived !:yesnod:

    Best drummer? Sorry to skip the 60s and 70s, but Virgil Donati takes that one.

    I realize this is all in fun, but these guys take what Led Zeppelin started and keep it going into the next century.

    No, Zeppelin was a lot more than just a band, it captured the essence of many different lands in sound. The BBC sessions are a good start to really get into it. They simply overpowered any competing rock band at the time. They had their own jet.

    2nd, well, I listen to a LOT of different music, so I'm by no means only a metal-head, but I gotta say that Iron Maiden is pretty amazing, with some pretty melodic compositions, it's not quite as collective, at least it hasn't always been, but it's amazing to have seen so many "metal" acts come and go, in both their presence and their musical ability, while maiden has endured. There's a lot of good singers, but that's a good singer in a good band, and it's hard to get the idea of how their seen internationally from the US, but other parts of the world still go nuts when they tour. They have their own jet.

    I think of Tool a little more like Pink Floyd, with one composition rolling into the next, complex sounds but also melodic at times. I think Tool is getting off track though, they've gone from very simple loud songs to more melodic compositions to bongo-drums and flutes or something for 9 minutes. I think there was a definite sweet-spot in there, around Lateralus and Aenema, it seems like the newest stuff is getting strung even more out and starting to fall apart musically, as if it's it's getting so complex it's losing what defines it.

    Pink floyd is not even in the same book as Zeppelin, nor is the the Beetles or any other of that dribble,
    Zeppelin stands alone on the top of the heap for musical genius and class..
    With Mother Love Bone right up there.......
