The Struts

I listened to their latest a couple of days ago. Not bad, reminded me of The Stones. They’ve toured as support to some big hitters like The Foos, Stones and The Who.

Max Webster are one of my favourite bands but I think they probably aren’t to everyone’s taste as they can be both off- the-wall and “poppy”. Listen to Universal Juveniles or A Million Vacations, if they don’t grab you the older ones definitely will not.

Currently diving into Savatage.

Bands I want to explore further:

Opeth (mostly the post-Watershed era)
The Who
Alkaline Trio
Smashing Pumpkins
Deep Purple
Shadows Fall
ZZ Top
Pink Floyd
Epica

He said name the “one” band. If you cannot stick to the rules don’t play.

I don’t think you’ll like Deep Purple and it’s odd you aren’t acquainted with Floyd.
The Who are almost like 2 different bands, there’s the Sixties mod stuff and then the proggy albums starting with Tommy.
For me Quadrophenia and Who’s Next are their greatest works.

I love Who's Next. I haven't tried anything else yet.

I don't mind Deep Purple. Never desired to dive deep into their work, but hope too soon. Black Sabbath as well.

Pink Floyd are a band I generally can't stand but I played Wish You Were Here a couple of years back and it was surprisingly good. Never went back though.

Thanks Tony. Off the wall and poppy. two of my favorite elements. Giving Universal a shot.

They're a band prophetically named for the length of their peak in popularity.

[it should be noted, after looking at their wikipedia page, that in the US they really only had one successful album whereas in Europe and Canada they were more well known overall and for a longer period of time]

Not much to add to Toni's suggestions, but I would start with High Class In Borrowed Shoes. Their best album for me.

Listened to Juveniles twice. I like it. Less proggy that I thought it would be but I will surely investigate further.

Great to hear that you'll dive in. No doubt, MW are really worth it. Let me know what you think of HCIBS. It's a killer album!

John Lennon

I love The Beatles, always have and always will.

Really love George and Paul's solo stuff and dig Ringi's as well.

For some reason, John's solo output is very hit and miss for me.

I own it all, but seldom spin it.
Is that Ringie or Ring-Eye??
