Mine has to be the doors, so many great songs and jim Morrison was a true showman. Cream comes a close second with Eric Clapton being my favourite guitarist, other great bands like creedence clearWater revival and joy divison make my list.

The Alarm have always been, and continue to be, my favourite band. Lead singer Mike Peters is such an inspirational person, and continues to release great new music. As a live act they are stIll fantastic.

They are the soundtrack to my life, however, there are other bands who are probably more current favourites.

I'm very much into the folk punk stuff these days - Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly and Frank Turner, who I just discovered when he supported the Murphys recently....absolutely love it so now I'm downloading all his stuff.

Then I saw Bruce Springsteen again a couple of weeks ago and he reminded me that he's definitely the best live performer out there by some distance.

The Gaslight Anthem are another current favourite, and I'm just starting to get into Mumford and Sons.

Nobody will ever replace The Alarm in my heart though :-)

Apparently Mike has been doing a pretty good job with BC - think some of the doubters who thought Stuart Adamson could never be replaced have been won over.

Have seen Mike with them a couple of times but to be honest I've never been much of a BC fan...some of the songs are ok though.

Glad Mike's still keeping The Alarm going as well though, and he still does his acoustic stuff - unfortunately he never tours here in Australia and I miss him/them :(

I'm gonna go against the grain here and name a band or two from the last twenty years! :P

 

I'm more of a song person myself, rather cherry pick and unearth than listen to everything by a select few.

 

But I'd probably plump for;

 

Bloc Party,

Foo Fighters, and one for the oldies

T-Rex.

 

I could even include Breaking Benjamin and Suburban Legends for the fun factor.

Top of the list, especially for their diversity across the styles of music I love, its always Led Zeppelin for me.

But in no particular order we have.

Rolling Stones

Beautiful South

Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band

Robert Cray Band

La Cucina

Lindisfarne

Groundhogs

Little Feet

This lists changes depending on my mood at the time.

T-Rex, Tyrannosaurus Rex and then T-Rex Electric Warrior, and about half of Slider after that very little to impress.
