I'm surprised the lists are so short-I guess everyone is being uber selective???? And, though some very diverse, not as much diversity as I'd expect "naturally/statistically" from drummers (which gigging drummers often play all genres ). I hate/dislike country music but Shaniah Twain has an album that made it to my collection (gosh almost embarrassed to admit that) and I don't have a single rap contribution (though I listen to that on radio more than country). That said I've enjoyed reading the lists-some I've forgotten about so re-discovering music so worth the read. (also some I've never heard of-so awesome!).

Here we go. I feel like Pharaoh speak and it appears. Let it be written let it be done-guess I'll have to shave my head for the full effect.

Jethro Tull.....been real into them lately! If I could go back in time, I think a mid to late 70's Jethro Tull gig would be freaking unbelievable. Were they just a little too over the average folks head musically? Did they achieve all the fame that they could? Were they under appreciated? I watch some of the live stuff and I am blown away, like damn how did I miss this growing up? But then again, I think it went well over my head at the time. Tull, my latest music obsession.

This is great because......The wedding present....are the worst band I have ever seen live and by some margin. So bad I can even recall it was in Kilburn, London. Don’t get me wrong, each to there own, but youthey were truly terrible, so much so that I have an allergic reaction more than 20 yrs after the gig. Also some bands can make good albums/ recordings even if they can’t actually play live well.

The Strawbs- Grave new World
Great album! I was thinking of putting it on my list, too, but ended up leaving it off. Killer title track.

From my understanding, they did pretty well for themselves. Maybe they weren't up there with ELP and Yes, but I think they were on the same level as Genesis and King Crimson. Pretty sure they were above Gentle Giant and The Strawbs in terms of recognition.
