Google - or YouTube - is your friend. The Bonzos, in particular, were wonderful. Don't be put off by the fact that they were a "comedy" outfit; their music is great.

Hocus pocus by focus! Lol! One hit wonders don't count!
Focus were hugely inventive, and massively talented. It's worth listening to their other stuff - not just their one hit

I think Focus had a hit with 'Sylvia' too.

Sparks are the American duo Ron and Russell Mael, better known in Britain and Europe than in the US. They always come up with something different.

Hello Abby,

Hank Williams

Agree

Bob Marley and the Wailers-invented Reggae

Popularised Reggae for the mass market, definitely didn't invent it. Should really be in the honourable mentions.

The Ramones-Fathers of Punk Rock

See above

The Doors

Definitely

Chuck Berry

Definitely

Allman Bros-Southern rock innovators

Don't really know much about southern rock

Black Sabbath-first of the real heavy metal bands and invented the riff.

First heavy metal, but Pink Floyd invented the riff on there first album.

Pink Floyd-I don't know what to say here--just Pink Floyd LOL!

Oh yeah!

Grateful Dead-they were a movement, or a cult, let alone a band.

Was never into the Dead personally, but you are right.

The Beach Boys

Yep.

B52s-New wave masters. and just one of the coolest bands ever.

Not a fan at all, found the music to obvious and derivative.

Jimi Hendrix-no need to say more

Top of any list.

Honorable mention-The Who, Dick Dale-king of the surf guitar, Nirvana, David Bowie, the velvet underground, Kraftwerk, Devo

Nirvana, Velvets and Devo are far more than honourable mentions.

Kraftwerk are top five in any list. Their influence changed the music world, literally!

Hello Sam,

I'd go with Beefheart, and add:

Borderline, for me, maybe.

Dave Brubeck

Yes

Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band (I'm serious)

Saw them many times, but then I'm an urban spaceman from way back.

Velvet Underground

Lou Reed, John Cale and a bit of Nico, how could you go wrong?

The Beatles

Of course

Miles Davis

Named our son after him.

Soft Machine

Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers and Daevid(sp?) Allen deserve to be on the list individually.

Pink Floyd

Only when Mr Grumpy was with them.

Focus

Meh!

Zappa

Mother of all bands!

Re the riff, did not the Kinks get there first?

Hello Gut,

Elvis

Doh!


Bob

And Leonard and Neil

The Who

Personally, love The Who dearly, more than some on the list, but they should only be honourable mentions

Elton

More Bernie than Elton

bee Gees

Guess so ...

Aussie call out for Vanda and Young as world class tunesmiths.

Hello Robert,


Sparks

Not for me, but I'd take them over the B52's.

Kate Bush.

Top five!

and let's hear it for Joni Mitchell and Patti Smith.

And my list would include Ray Davies, with or without The Kinks, Ian Dury and Fairport Convention. Probably will think of more later.

Oh wait ... Nina Simone!
