I know he's not a band, but what are your thoughts on Bob Dylan? I dig a lot of his songs. He was influential to many following him.

I just saw video of the Rolling Stones playing with Muddy Waters at Chicago's Checkerboard Lounge in 1981. It was pretty cool seeing Mick, Keef, & Ronnie paying homage to the man that coined their band's name and innovated the style of music they melded with rock to create their own sound.

You, sir, have awsome taste in music. Thievery Corporation and Delirium brought back great memories; I've seen them both play in London back in the early 2000's, during a real formative period of my life.

I've never heard of Bitter:Sweet before, but having just checked out one of their songs on YouTube, I may well invest... What's your favourite song of theirs? And if you like them, you must also like Lamb:

The musical talent ot ELO was always highly underrated in my opinion. I think the reason for that was that their blend of pop harmonies and classic instrumentation just seemed to blend so well that they made it all look so easy. People loved to listen to their catchy tunes but never realized how much work went into the arrangments.

Of course I love "The Mating Game" and "Dirty Laundry", but this has to be my favorite right now. Shana Halligan has quite possibly the sexiest voice on the planet Earth.

Jeff Lynne is in the process of remastering all their old albums. And actually rerecording some.

Wow, tough to nail down a top five, as I love so many bands. But if I had to narrow it down and live with only 5 bands, they'd be Zeppelin, Tool, Rush, Godsmack and Queensryche.

In no particular order:
The Beatles
The Rolling Stones
The Clash
Bruce Springsteen & the E st. Band
Santana

Going through the list there are so many other bands I would agree were innovative and industry changing as well, but I'm sticking with the allotted 5.

really just to many out there. I could do a top five for different times of my life.

for those that do not know of Lucero, go to iTunes and listen to "Women and Work". It might surprise you.

Lets throw the original "Band" into the mix. Levon was a master.

Was at a tribute show earlier this summer. Closed my eyes and just listened, I really thought I was hearing Levon himself. The early voice and drum stacato(sp?) were there. Turns out the singer/drummer was Levon's nephew.
