What other bands do you like besides the Stones?

OK, we are all here because of the Rolling Stones. I know I've become a "catalog fan" (someone who knows all the records by now, the singles, etc) over the years, but I am certainly not limited to the Rolling Stones.

What other bands or artist do we like?

I'll start:

R.E.M. (sadly I'll never see this wonderful band live ever again)
The Beatles
The Rolling Stones (of course)
Patti Smith
Wings/Paul McCartney
John Lennon
10,000 Maniacs - Natalie Merchant
Madonna
The Cure
Elton John
INXS (Michael Hutchence -era only)
David Bowie
George Harrison
Gang of Four
Snow Patrol
Peter Gabriel
Fleetwood Mac (I like them, I don't love them)
Led Zeppelin
Duran Duran
B-52's
Radiohead
Depeche Mode

Doyle, Clapton, Hendrix, Black Crowes(when Chris's head isn't in his arse), Rage, Wolf, Muddy, this is hard....too many. I try to be open, any good guitar music I can appreciate. I like some PE, The Beasties......etc.

Really into The Doors right now for some reason. I share Keith's appreciation of Warren Zevon. Love Miles Davis, Beethoven, all the great hip-hop artists. The list goes on... As long the artist has something interesting to say.

The Small Faces
The Who
Cream
Led Zeppelin
The Jam
The Smiths
Guns N' Roses

Real quickie--
The Byrds

Many of my favorite Stones songs are their country tinged ones.

Doors too. I always listen when LA Woman gets played on my local classic rock station

David Bowie right now. I pretty much gave up 'round about Tin Machine and "Tonight." His last great album was "Scary Monsters."

But "The Next Day" got me into more modern Bowie. Heathen and Reality are quite good too.

Richard Thompson
Dylan


After that it's a Jazz world for me most recently.
