Led Zeppelin
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds

The next three places change every now and again according to my mood but for today they would be

White Stripes
John Hiatt
Johnny Cash

Ask me tommorow and the list will change apart from the top two!

Presuming you mean the older Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer et al?)

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

Greatest Rock and Roll band ever -- The Rolling Stones
They have been in my top 10 for as long as I can remember. And if you've ever seen their show live, well, then you understand why they are the greatest.

Right now, my favorite band is Flogging Molly.
Other bands that have held the top spot at one time are:
  1. Bang Tango -- Kind of a funk hair band
  2. Swamp Zombies -- kind of a beatnik version of the Violent Femmes
  3. Concrete Blond -- I just love the CD Bloodletting
  4. AC DC -- Back in Black is still a desert island disk
  5. Social Distortion -- I can't tell you how many times I've heard Somewhere Between Heaven and ****
  6. Jack Johnson -- When I'm in a mellow-lean-your-head-back-and-chill kind of mood
  7. The Queers -- Sophomoric punk band
  8. Guns N Roses -- Appetite for Destruction, nuff said
  9. Leon Redbone -- Don't know if it's Jazz or Blues, I just know I like it

That's all I can think of right now.. I'm sure there are others, but that will get me started.

Kind of ecletic huh?

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

Fincave likes Violent Femmes!

Flogging Molly? Bang Tango? Okay... I've heard of ACDC, GNR, and Leon, but I'm lost with the rest. I would have to say very diverse.

Some of my other favorites outside of classic rock, my favorite genre, would be:

Yello
Flim & the BB's
Spyro Gyra
Sarah Brightman
Whitney Houston
Collective Soul
Lenny Kravitz

I don't know if there's much current stuff I like other than maybe Gavin DeGraw.

But I just can't bump these up into my top 5.

Never heard of Swamp Zombies but if they can be mentioned in the same breathe as Violent Femmes then I will have to see if I can get hold of some of their stuff

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

Yeah, I couldn't stop at just five..

And you will probably have some problems finding much on the Swamp Zombies. They haven't been around for a long while and I think their record label went belly up. You can see the one video I know here, but it's not my favorite song by them.. not my least favorite either.

I'll be curious to see what you think. I've had some people like them, some not so much..

My tastes keep changing, but in the last ten years I have listened over and over to:

Christian - Michael Card
Jazz/Funk - Harry Connick Jr.
Guitarist - Satriani
Progressive Metal - Ayreon (obviously)
Psychedelic - Pink Floyd
Classical(ish) Soundtrack - Spirited Away

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

I must concur with JCD, that the Stones live is truly a great experience. The best $80 I ever earned. Yes, earned, I "worked" security when the show came to the Edward Jones Dome several years ago. By "worked" I mean wore a matching tee-shirt as 100 other people and held a flashlight in my hand. I didn't expect much being that it was in a 60,000+ seat footbal stadium but I was wrong. I was lucky enough to get to work the stage--ie, I was closer than the front row. Amazing what those 60+ year old guys can still do. Great show.

Probably my favorite all-time band is the Urge. I have seen them several times. The best was in a very small club years ago when they "opened" for 311. What a great show that was. total capacity of a few hundred people. This was obviously before 311 got as huge as they did in the late 90's.

I like so many different types of music it is hard to put together a list of "favorites."
never the less, here I go in no particular order.

Alt/newer rock:
Urge
Collective soul
Cranberries

Classic rock:
stones
petty
phil collins/genesis
Floyd
Walsh

"Mood" type stuff: (I know, I know, call me "Sally"--can't help it time to time)
enigma
Enya
Yanni--let the name calling begin

Hard rock:
Metallica
Ministry
Tool
Korn
Godsmack
Rollins

Rap: (All "old school"--I told you I liked all kinds of stuff)
NWA--and all of the solo spin offs--EAZY-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube
Too Short
DJ Quick
Ghetto Boyz
Ice T

Country: (See above disclaimers)
Allen Jackson

Soft Rock:
Jack johnson
Dave Mathews
John Mayer
David Gray
Sarah Mcglaughlin
Natalie Merchant

Other Misc that I don't have a category nor explination for:
Madonna's new dance stuff

Probably my most listened to disc: City of Angels soundtrack--a little bit of everything, blues, rock, pop, soft melodies, classical--very diverse and all very good.
