Three weeks later, still Todd Rundgren. (Who am I kidding, he has been for 40 years, not likely to change.) Go Todd!

B-52s
Frank Zappa

Okay, top seven.

Re: What's your all time favorite group/band?

Anyone have a new favorite band or performer that they have "discovered" within the last year? For me it was the indie band Deerhoof. There is SO MUCH great music out there! You can never keep up, but it is fun to try!
