CocaBuena I know this is a Rolling Stones message board, but I would like to know which other bands/singers you guys/girls like too.

Ok, the start is mine

1 - Rolling Stones, in first, always(Once I spent 2,5 years listening only them)
2 - Led Zeppelin, the second best rock'n' roll in the world
3 - Neil Young, the best guitar player still live in the world, much better than keef
4 - Jimi Hendrix - No need explanation
5 - Bob Dylan for all those things he did, musically and lyrics, attitude.
6 - Miles Davis - the coolest music in the world.

The "new" ones:

1 - The Cure from 80's, absolutely "savage" live in London
2 - Blur and then Gorillaz: for the lack of attitude
3 - Dr Dree - For all those killer grooves
4 - Lenny Kravitz: because he's good in any & many ways.
5 - Pulp - just for that album named "different class", they deserve a special place
6 - Chemical brothers/Kraftwerk - for the mix between rock and electronic music
7 - Morcheeba - For the general mix, and that great lead voice

Of course, I forgot lots more, but...
Ok, now you

JaggaRichards All Stones all the time.


Lots of old 50's R&B, straight blues, some 60's, and some big band stuff.

And definitly Louis Prima with Sam Butera. Man, that Sam could play!
02-23-02 04:46 PM
Fabio Hot Stuff Hi Jaggarichards!
We got the right mood in music stile...
Louis Prima is been one of the first rock'n'roller , just listen Jump Jive and Wail or Blow Red Blow....
Brian Setzer had learn the lesson...
02-23-02 05:18 PM
Cardinal Ximinez HOLY SHIT!

I forgot to mention BOB DYLAN! How the hell could I have forgotten BOB! My Dylan collection is getting all swole up!

Love that Bob!
02-23-02 05:37 PM
marko I listen lot of these bands,,,,besides stones.
Black sabbath,zeppelin,frank zappa,jethro tull,king crimson,
cult,gentle giant,focus,pink floyd,deep purple,as you noticed
lot of 70ies stuff.
02-23-02 06:35 PM
JaggaRichards Hey Fabio-

Prima's version of 'When You're Smiling' is a killer, and his take on 'The St. Louis Blues' is an absolute mindblower!
02-24-02 09:27 AM
nanky Chiba.

I like chiba, thank you very much.

I really like chiba when listening to the Stones. (I don't listen to much else).

Yep, chiba is pretty nice.

I like beer and wine too, though.

But, if you, like, left me stranded on a deserted island and I could only have one thing, it would be chiba.

Or maybe Heather Locklear.

Okay, if I can have the Stones (i'll even narrow it down to Handsome Girls), and chiba, and Heather, that would be fine.

02-24-02 02:16 PM
The Eggman Marko did u say GENTLE GIANT?...I didnt think anyone liked them, lol (FREE HAND)

anyways, iam surprized no one said INXS like me, considering Michael Hutchence did the Classical cover of UNDER MY THUMB
02-24-02 03:50 PM
F505 Ryan Adams and Steve Earle make music the Stones used to play in the old days: rock and roll.

Adams in an interview: if the Stones don't want to play the way they should I will do it for them. And he's right. Just listen to Gold and you know why Bridges to Babylon, Voodoo Lounge and Steel Wheels suck.
02-24-02 05:55 PM
Gazza Bob Dylan & Bruce Springsteen are my two main faves along with the Stones..I like all 3 pretty much equal.

Then (in no particular order):

Elvis (except the hollywood stuff), Neil Young, Lou Reed,
Beatles,The Clash,The Who, The Doors, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Beach Boys, Tom Waits, Southside Johnny, Bowie (up to about the mid 80s),Jimi Hendrix,Marvin Gaye,Frank Sinatra, John Fogerty/CCR, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Prince, Joe Ely, The Temptations, Van Morrison, U2, Warren Zevon, Howlin Wolf, Chuck Berry,Oasis (early stuff),REM, Al Green, Leonard Cohen,Carlene Carter, Patti Smith, Sheryl Crow, Ry Cooder, Ryan Adams, The Smiths

Bound to have forgot a few but that covers most bases...
02-25-02 09:25 AM
patioaintdry if you like Ryan Adams and Steve Earle or Robbie Fulks, You'll love WILCO! Check out anything by them, but I highly suggest the double CD 'Being There' and their collaborations with Billy Bragg performing Woody Guthrie songs 'Mermaid Avenue' and Mermaid Avenue, Vol. 2'
02-25-02 01:37 PM
Larry Dallas Agreed. Wilco's "Being There" is one of the greates non-Stones albums of all time. That should be a Grammy category.

Some of my favorites:

John R. Cash
Willie Nelson
John Prine
Townes Van Zandt
Bob Dylan
Guy Clark
Steve Earle

All are folk types cause I only need one rock band.
02-25-02 02:02 PM
Jaxx i like to listen to all kinds of music, including showtunes, classical and opera. "go fors" besides the obvious "mainline" would be:

grateful dead and any jerry solo forays (ie bluegrass, new riders)
neil young and buffaloe springfield but no csn
billie holiday and most blues in general (i'll take em any way i can get em)
talking heads and solo efforts (ie tomtom club, jerry harrison's casual gods)
"get the led out" zepplin
jeff beck
nils lofgren
lenny kravitz
no doubt
james gang w/joe walsh
YES (rick wakeman rocks)
the bouncing souls (my cousins band)

02-25-02 02:05 PM
TomL Who, Bowie, Ian Hunter, Neil young, All the old blues masters, Plant & Page, U2, AC/DC, John Couger, many more, but no one beats the boys. 2002/2003, hope it will be a good year.
02-25-02 03:42 PM
CocaBuena Hi there, if you like Louis Prima, then you have too see the Robert de Niro movie "Mad Dog and Glory". There's a fabulous scene with De Niro singing Ain't Got Nobody...
I knew Prima watching that movie...


Btw, i forgot some important names in my list: Cowboy Junkies, kd Lang, Cream, Tom Petty, B-52's and...and JJ CALE, for god sake! He's great!!! Ddnt see nobody talk about him...
02-26-02 04:49 AM
Fabio Hot Stuff Hi CocaBuena,
Yeah, I know Bob De Niro is a great fan of Louis Prima swingin' era, same songs compare in "Casino'" movie (thats the italian title), with Sharon Stone.
Another fine movie was "Big Night", where two italoamerican open a restaurant in new York and they invite the Louis band at nite open.....but nobody will come to sing.
02-26-02 07:49 AM
Maxlugar I like loads of stuff but whether I buy it is another story.

The music I like enough to buy and load into my 400 CD player are:

Stones (at least 75% of what I own)
Kinks (The Wall is just warmed over Arthur)
Jeff Beck (group and solo)
Black Sabbath
Hank Williams
Johnny Cash
Peter Tosh
Bob Marley
Muddy Waters
Screamin' Jay Hawkins (Wild man!)
Johnny Lee Hooker
Hog Dog Taylor (Just getting into him. Great!)
Chuck Berry
Guns and Roses
Ten Years After

I think that's it.

"Slap 400 CD's in my ass and call me Sony, Ronnie!"

Your friend for ever and ever, (and I'm not just saying that)

02-26-02 02:48 PM
CocaBuena Hi there Fabio,
I know the movies you talk about it, thanks. Is kinda hard to find Louis Prima albuns here in Brazil, but some years ago I got one, "His Greatest Hits", made in Czech Republic (!!!). Really hot stuff!
02-28-02 07:31 AM
