Canned Heat?? Pat Benatar?

Canned Heat was outstanding, and John Mayall worked with them too. Not only "On the road again" but "Shake and Boogie", classic.

And just heard "Running with the Shadows", good stuff.

-----------

For my 5, I'd go something like:

Doors
Grateful Dead
Creedence
Allmans

5th, I'd go for the Beach Boys for popularity though, yes, I might like Aerosmith, Ramones more.

MC5?

BOA?

What is with you people? If you wanted to name the top 5 American bands on IORR, you might start with American bands that inspired the Rolling Stones -- bands that, you know, the Stones stole ideas from. Or bands whose songs the Stones covered.

The Temptations
The O'Jays
The Miracles
The Coasters
The Flying Burrito Brothers

Excellent choices on this forum, will try not to duplicate, sorry if I do but let's not forget:

Little River Band

More and more....Pool's not thin, dive in head first, you won't break your neck! >grinning smiley<

American in sound to be sure, and a heap of US hits, and whilst I think AUSTRALIA has adopted many US institutions and customs and habits .... WE AIN'T AMERICAN YET!!!!!

Little River Band are as Australian as VEGEMITE!

My post was more of a WTF kind of post. Although I see that it doesn't come off that way. I meant 'Canned Heat' as in 'What? are you serious?'
not that there is aything wrong with that group. But in this thread ther are lists after lists of 60's bands.
Yes, we are Stonesfans here, and the Stones started out in the 60's.
But does no one except Green Lady move wih the currents?

PS: Jimi Hendrix Experience was as english as it gets...

Jimi Hendrix was born in Seattle and has his roots in the American Blues Music,
The British Music scene gave him a platform, where Jimi wiped the floor with the English guitar players at the time.

Yet he delivered british acid bluesrock within an english pop group. In no way may the Experience be classified as an american group.

In no way the Experience where an English pop group, the band is famous almost entirely for His revolutionary guitar work! I would like to describe them as Anglo American Band.

Listen to what the man himself has to say about that - in the beginning of this clip smiling smiley

EDIT: Is this Hendrix, btw? I'm not quite sure whether this is a faux...

Satisfaction is an Early Hendrix & Curtis Knight studio/live recording done in late 1965-January 1966. Probably The Georges Club Hackensack New Jersey!


(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
composers: Mick Jagger & Keith Richard
vocals: Curtis Knight
harmony vocals: Jimi Hendrix
lead guitar: Jimi Hendrix
rhythm guitar???: unknown
bass: unknown
drums: unknown

intro
CK: "Continuing on, we're gonna do a tune made popular by the Rolling Stones. A very fabulous British group. We're British, also."
JH: "West Indies."
CK: "West British, South British."
JH: "British West Indies."
CK: (laughs)
JH: "That's down there close to Georgia, isn't it? Isn't it down there close to - "
CK: "That's pretty close to Georgia. A little tune entitled I Can't Get None."

Hendrix moved to the UK September 23 1966. He most have loved Europe and the warm welcome from other great UK Musicians that inspired Hendrix. As an Artist you get inspired on the road and travelling but you always carry your roots in your suitcase. You don't consider The Stones French Musicians in 1972?grinning smiley

Early with Knight smiling smiley Some more Early Hendrix info:

In 1960, he joined his first band, THE ROCKING KINGS, but a year later he enlisted in the Army where he became a member of the SCREAMING EAGLES 101st Airborne Paratroopers squad. After breaking his ankle in his 26th jump in 1962, HENDRIX was honorably discharged due to "medical unsuitability." (Over the years, HENDRIX made comments that his accident may have been staged ... he was looking for a way out of the service and often complained to the doctors that his back hurt ... when they couldn't find anything wrong, they discharged him rather than take a chance that he might do further damage.) He immediately picked up his guitar again and soon was touring with BOB FISHER AND THE BARNEVILLES, backing up famous recording artists like THE MARVELETTES and CURTIS MAYFIELD AND THE IMPRESSIONS.

By the end of 1962, HENDRIX had moved to Vancouver, Canada, where he began playing as a regular member of BOBBY TAYLOR AND THE VANCOUVERS at the infamous DANTES INFERNO Club. (We featured BOBBY TAYLOR AND THE VANCOUVERS' FORGOTTEN ONE-HIT WONDER, DOES YOUR MAMA KNOW ABOUT ME, a while back in FH. At the time, we told you that TOMMY CHONG of CHEECH AND CHONG fame was once a member of THE VANCOUVERS ... and that BOBBY TAYLOR was the guy who REALLY introduced THE JACKSON FIVE to BERRY GORDY at MOTOWN RECORDS, not DIANA ROSS as all the publicity was doctored to state ... yet during all that research, NEVER did we EVER come across any information about HENDRIX being a member of this band. Just wait ... it gets better!!!)

In 1963, JIMI returned to The United States and began touring and recording with a virtual Who's Who of early '60's musical superstars. Between 1963 and 1965, using the stage name JIMMY JAMES, HENDRIX toured with or backed up artists like SAM COOKE, JACKIE WILSON, LITTLE RICHARD, SLIM HARPO, HANK BALLARD, THE SUPREMES, TOMMY TUCKER, THE ISLEY BROTHERS, IKE AND TINA TURNER and KING CURTIS ... all the while, remaining an unknown (but, apparently, in demand) background guitarist.
