Who's worth investigating?  Donny & the Colluders...

I thought he was with The Circle Jerks.

With Spin Doctors as opening act!  Spicer and Mooch need the money!

It's great to see all the different types of music people post here.

Are there some bands or artists that are off your radar screen and/or you feel you "need" to check out further?

For me, I "need" to dig deeper into...

UFO

Uriah Heep

I need to investigate the music of...

Budgie
I thought you knew all those bands!

I would say start with Uriah Heep, then try UFO, then Budgie. But any order is good, but you do need to investigate all these bands!
I know them all, but not well.

Stephen, a short time ago I bought a UFO box set of the Chrysalis label era  ... And I had had all of those albums on CD already, so I now have doubles ..

You are welcome to have all of the UFO CDs that I have doubles of ( which should be all the Schenker years plus the Paul Chapman era )  ....

( hint: this is a bribe to get us to finally get together and have some food !! :lol:
Very generous offer...I'm in.

Despite their rather consistent sound, the actual quality of their albums has a surprising degree of variety. Which ones did you hear?

I actually haven't heard Echoes, lol, but from what I've heard about it, you might enjoy There Is Nothing Left To Lose.

Foo Fighters also

Best gig I've ever been too...they fall flat for me on record with a couple of very likeable exceptions.

A great example of a band whose songs I’ve heard I like, but would never choose to listen to.

In light of the recent loss, I'd like to further explore Pantera as I only know Vulgar Display. They had a huge influence on bands I love, like Machine Head or Trivium. I feel it's a good time.

Prince. My wife got me to listen to some of his stuff not too long ago. I unfairly dismissed him as cheap pop trash during high school.

Controversy is my personal favorite.  I’ve mostly listened to all his 80s albums on repeatedly sans Batman and have listened to Diamonds And Pearls a lot as well.  I’ve got 1999 and ATWIAD on vinyl this far.

I need to get into Stevie Wonder considering he started at a young age and has as many albums Bob Dylan and Neil Young.  Listened to a few of his albums on streaming once.  I really dug Songs In The Key Of Life the first listen.

Far Beyond Driven is my personal favorite.  It has their cover of Planet Caravan by Sabbath.

I’m guessing One By One, right?  Foos have disowned it.  The original demos of some of those songs blow the album out of the water especially with Lonely As You.

Mick mentioned Echoes which I find to be their most underrated.  Stranger Things Have Happened may be their best ballad ever.

My Foos rankings, if we're on the subject:

Wasting Light
The Color And The Shape
Concrete And Gold
Sonic Highways
There Is Nothing Left To Lose
In Your Honor

the rest I haven't heard enough to be relatively sure.
