How's it going Hombre_de_ningun_lugar? WOW, this is an interesting list, a very good one too! I love all of these bands mentioned! As usual, THE BEATLES always come out on top of the list. Its really amazing how the bands from the 1960's are very popular among today's youth! I LOVE IT! For me personally, I would have added LED ZEPPELIN, PINK FLOYD, FLEETWOOD MAC, DEEP PURPLE, SANTANA, THE GRATEFUL DEAD and BLACK SABBATH somewhere on the list. What do you think Hombre_de_ningun_lugar? Take care.

Hi again BeatlesForever, hope you're very well. I just included my very favourite bands on the list, but if you want to know, other bands/artists that I like are the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Band, Traffic, Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Spirit, the Association, CSNY, among others.

Hi again Hombre_de_ningun_lugar! I forgot about THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE! I should be ashamed of myself! I even forgot about THE BAND, THE WHO, JANIS JOPLIN, TRAFFIC, THE ASSOCIATION, SPIRIT, QUICKSILVER MESSENGER SERVICE, MOBY GRAPE, CSNY and BOB DYLAN just to name a few. Take care.

Thanks Hombre_de_ningun_de_lugar! We both have been coming up with some great bands. I even forgot about HUMBLE PIE and PROCOL HARUM! Take care.

And I didn't mention the Small Faces, the Lovin' Spoonful, the Turtles, the Mamas & the Papas, the United States of America, the Grass Roots, Strawberry Alarm Clock, etc.; you can see that I have a deep love for 1960's music.

I love all of the bands that you mentioned! I see that you're really into the 1960's music. COOL! Bono from U2 said it best: Those bands that came out of the 1960's are Rock Royalty! Those bands ruined it for all of the bands that would follow including U2. There were some great bands that came out in the 1970's but they don't compare to the bands of the 1960's. Then again, it just my opinion. Take care.

I feel the same, 1960's bands made the base of rock music. I admit that some great bands came in the following decades, but I'm quite narrow minded about music and only listen to 1960's bands! :)

Yes, I love Traffic, I didn't put them in my original list of very favourite ones, but I mentioned them later. Mr. Fantasy is indeed a great record, and I also love their second eponymous album. I think Traffic is in my Top 20 bands list.
