1. The Kinks 2. The Beatles 3. The Rolling Stones 4. The Moody Blues (I still think they are the biggest omission from the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. As many hits in the US as brethren such as The Kinks, Who, and The Hollies; but they were huge album artists too here, unlike The Hollies) 5. The Yardbirds. It's real hard for me to pick between The Hollies, Animals or The Yardbirds. I chose this band for their significance among musicians as a result of the Clapton/Beck/Page guitar gods successively playing lead for them. I personally prefer listening to The Hollies or the Animals.
So glad you brought them back up, John. I have to say that I prefer the early Moodys, before they got so bombastic. As for the Yardbirds, they were so ground-breaking, and such purists, they never got the attention they deserved.
1- Bob Dylan 2- The Doors 3- The Byrds 4- Leonard Cohen 5- Jimi Hendrix
American Evasion -- I love it!
Though it's true, Jimi had to go to London to get his full due, times being what they were. I guess we couldn't add the Beach Boys because they were already radio kings before the Brits invaded. And if we really want to go full-on American, I'll put my beloved Doug Sahm (he of the Sir Douglas Quintet) up against anybody. Texas rock rules!

I like "Pink Floyd" but I think a very overrated group. In his discography have three or four jewels among a lot of garbage for 30 years. And live large sales suposo "Dark Side Of The Moon", "We Wish You Here" and "The Wall". A discography with three little wonders and more ....In conclusion I like Pink Floyd but are not among my favorites, there are many better bands.
