Little River Band definitely. You could have also added Yes and Chicago.

Those bands are one (okay maybe 2) hit wonders. Where are the Good Bands? These bands are probably playing pubs and dinner theaters. But if this is my only choices. Little River Band.

I like cheap trick...LRB was good too, but the quint-neck guitar cant be taking second to LRB.

Cheap trick did not really become sucessful til the late 70's, early 80's. Little River band and Pablo cruise both were not bad but not hugely successful compared to other bands such as Chicago and the Eagles but of the list...I would say Little River Band.:thumbsup2

I chose to stick to the choices listed. The best all time band is of course AC/DC.

Al is the only one who gets it...... it's BETTER band.... not the best, not the most popular. It's like saying which is a better car, Pontiac or Chevy, We all know Mercedes better than those two, but of the two, which is better?

I got it!! I answered correctly :-)

However, except for a few of the major bands, I really don't know their names. I know songs I've heard before when I hear them, but who is the band??:confused3

I got it, Pete. Okay....if I have to make a choice from the lame groups you listed.... LRB. There...happy now???

My other choice was "mostly stoned", but that was only during the summer of 1973. Crazy brownies anyone???:thumbsup2

I chose LRB. Saw them twice as a back-up group. Can't remember the group they were backing-up :hippie: Could have been Kiss, Kansas, Styx, Joan Jett, Eagles, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Journey, Foreigner, Poison, just to name a few, and I'm sure it was way before my Guns 'n Roses obsession. Maybe Rick Springfield? (I can't believe I actually went to his concert :confused:) or was that the early eighties?

I voted Cheap Trick...they were more from my era...although I always thought "The Flame" was kinda a whip of a song! :confused3

Cheap Trick!

Can you honestly tell me you forgot? Forgot the magnetism of Robin Zander, or the charisma of Rick Nielsen?

I voted Little River Band! It's funny how you can hear one of those great bands from the 70 or 80's and it brings back soooo many memories.

Kansas... I grew up listening to them and they will always be the ones that I consider the best. They broke up right as soon as they were hitting their stride. Wow... what could have been...

2 hits?:eek: Look at ROGs list again. I think I have every regular album, yes the big black vinyl kind, that they put out. I was definitely big into Cheap Trick back then.

Kansas... I grew up listening to them and they will always be the ones that I consider the best. They broke up right as soon as they were hitting their stride. Wow... what could have been...

I got to see them in concert right before they broke up. It was a great concert. We drove from Lubbock, TX to Amarillo to see them.

They were the first band I saw in concert when I was 4 years old in 1977. I was lucky enough to take my daughter to see them a couple of years ago in Danville, VA. when she was 5.

So many people only know them for Dust In the Wind and Carry On Wayward Son and there are SO many more songs...

Kids. :sad2: I was 17 in 1977. I also have quite a bit of Kansas on vinyl. In fact most of my music is on vinyl. Probably close to 2000 albums on vinyl, not anywhere near that many CDs.

I finally threw away all my vinyl back in 1999. I tried to sell them, and did sell a few to collectors, but most of my vinyl albums were "well played" & not in good condition. There are several albums that I bought on vinyl, 8-track, cassette tape, and CD. Mostly Beatles (later stuff), Cream, Tull, Tommy (The Who), Santana, Grateful Dead, Chicago (my first CD was Chicago and whoa! The clarity blew me away!!) I'm also a classical organ freak, so I bought some E. Power Biggs, Paul Manz & Diane Bish recordings on cassette & then CD. The money I have spent on music!! Now, I just download if I really like something.
