    Yeah, Stevie. Like I said, that was not a full list even if it was long. Hey, we're talking the best. Those are the best, but not ALL of the best.

    For those who have shared, thanks for the heads up. I have already found some good bands I didn't know about.

    Many good bands on here though I should note that their are some solo artists on the list so does that qualify?

    Time to throw out some great bands from north of the Border.
    Great Big Sea
    Moxy Fruvous (disbanded)
    The Clumsy Lovers

    Some American lesser known groups that should be famous
    JT and the Clouds
    Goober and the Peas (disbanded)

    And since there are 2 of them they classify as a band
    The White Stripes

    I got pretty far down before I saw Pink Floyd, made me nervous. There is going to be a tribute band here in town towards the end of the month, and I have to go to RI for that weekend so we can spend Memrorial Day with my in-laws. I might jump out of the movig vehicle on the way.

    Ok let me add a couple

    Pink Floyd of course
    Savatage
    Killers
    They Might Be Giants
    Depeche Mode
    Iron Madien
    Manowar (excellent D&D music)
    Aerosmith
    Bob Seager

    for a partial list
