I've probably more than not seen it, I'm a big fan, but only being 29 years old I never got to see him. He seemed like a wonderful man.


It could be this one:

Beavers
Bad Company
Free
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Jimi Hendrix
The Doors
Funkadelic
Guns n Roses
Queens of The Stone Age
Rage Against The Machine

I'd say America isn't too shabby



Bad Company and Free are British not American.

British Bands, how about Dire Straits?

It's true that Britain punches waaaay above its weight when it comes to music.

It's about the only thing we are good at.

Many of the most successful bands/artists through the 60s/70s were Brits - however, it was in collusion with America (the biggest market) who lapped up all things British in those days.

Not all of them were that good, but because America loved them, they were successful. One example - Jethro Tull.

One hugely successful Brit band of those days that hasn't been mentioned yet - Deep Purple.

One of the best bands in the world - and my personal favourite - isn't British.

Rush. Canadian.

lol, no way you don't understand the concept the op is talking about. he is talking about the Gods of rock and Metal concept. its a concept that has evolved with European rock/metal since the 70's, in fact tenacious D tried to bring it to life in America with pick of destiny.
The U.K. had a festival called the monsters of rock back in the 90's at Donington castle.
To be a God of Rock/Metal music you have to reach a level beyond awesome, beyond reality, like robert plant and jimmy page, bonzo, Axl rose, Slash.
musicians that walked like gods among mortals played to crowds of 40-80,000 + people and influenced an entire generation.
Out of your list of American bands i would take Nirvana,the stooges, the Velvet Underground, The Doors, Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa and the mothers of invention and the ramones.

Here's a couple of notable bands that haven't been mentioned yet.

British - Radiohead, Coldplay
American - Foo Fighters, Linkin Park

I'm English and a big fan of both country's music.

I would say America has more notable bands but not because they're better, but because it's a bigger country, ergo more bands.

When I 1st picked up the guitar 20 years ago, all I wanted to learn was Pink Floyd and the Doors - Of course I've branched out a bit since then

Hendrix was American. However ex Animals bassist Chas Chandler bought him over to The UK which kick started his career. The other two members of his band where British.

Thanks! I forgot Queen! I think you have a point with talent shows not allowing bands.

Thanks for your input guys! I've been wanting to pose this for a while now. I'm glad it's stimulated so much conversation.

I'll also mention INXS from Australia who's lead singer committed suicide.

50+ yo Canuck here. Been listening to rock since Buddy Holly. This premise is sound. In the past Brit music was better. I'm not a Beatles or Stones fan but, in no particular order:

Sabbath
Deep Purple
The Who
Jethro Tull
Pink Floyd
Zep
Uriah Heep And the best ever.... QUEEN.

Not saying America doesn't have good music, they do but the classics definitely go to Britain.

Really? Do you think that Neil Young and Rush are American as well?
