Purron and Harley --Well of course, when you live in the cradle of Southern Rock, you HAVE to have some kind of regional bias.
And I agree, the Talking Heads--everything about them is fantastic.

Ronnie, I must say that Loverboy was an unexpected addition to your list. I clearly need to give those albums another listen. I'm afraid I lump them in with Billy Squier, an unfortunate victim of the worst music video every created.
However, we went to see a Journey tribute band (insert HFWR shudder here) and knew every word to every song, so that has to be worth something.

Yes, what a shame. Billy Squire really cranked out some great tunes.

I forgot to put Heart on my list and I too should have added The Who.

It's looking like The Who may have made it to the most lists (I didn't count, just eyeballed it).

I went through a Styx and Loverboy period. We wore out Paradise Theater. Great album. Loverboy was a favorite in high school, too.

I did cheat, but I didn't really count Billy Joel as a band and Damn Yankees was 1/4 Styx

Heh, like trying to pick a favorite child, which in my case is easy, since I only have one...

Sarah, I reluctantly forgive you for the Journey tribute band. At least Journey had Neil Schon and Greg Rolie, from the original Santana band...

Okay, I'll try to pick five: Beatles, Zappa, Pink Floyd, Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin

Honorable mention to: Stones, Jethro Tull, Yes, Eagles, Steely Dan

80s-90s: Van halen, Fixx, Talking Heads, Pearl Jam, REM

Can't leave out Clapton: Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominoes...

And a few guitar players: Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Rory Gallagher, Roy Buchanan, SRV, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson

Not to mention: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Band, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, CSNY, Moody Blues...
