Alter Bridge. Picture the same musicians from Creed playing heavier with a different lead singer sounding more like Chris Cornell, without the ego of Scott Stapp. And he can play guitar too. Very well. To me, they represent everything good about rock music today.

Probably at the moment Iron Maiden too, but for a live band it has to be Green Day. I just saw them twice in Birmingham 3 weeks ago and they put on an amazing show, and I've been to see some pretty good bands Big grin They even out did Queen + Paul Rodgers, which takes some beating personally.

My friend's dad's friend toured with them(or at least Steve Harris, not sure) and became good friends with him, so I hope I can get floor and VIP tickets(said friend has gotten VIP tix before so I know it's possible) for their next concert.  pray

Hands down, it's

Dave Matthews Band. Seen them a few times. They are truly talented on albums and just continue to evolve in concerts and live albums.

Through them, my appreciation for violin and sax has reached new heights.

Even with the passing of LeRoi, I have enjoyed hearing their music evolve.

...great thread...I think I'm likely to sample some of the bands listed above and perhaps may expand my appreciation.

Quoting FlyMKG (Reply 13):

Great band, they have a good sound.

One of my favourite bands is/was Tristania. I say was (reserving final jugement until I hear the new studio album), because their singer left to take up a career teaching and the band recruited a new singer who, for want of a better word, sounds like a cat yowling. It's even suggested now that the band is classing themselves as Indie... it's a tragedy - they pioneered symphonic gothic metal and then do this... WHY?  cry 

I have a list of favourites:

After Forever
Evanescence
Iron Maiden
Lacuna Coil
Nightwish (Tarja and Anette eras)
Mortal Love
Myriads
Sins of Thy Beloved
Sirenia
Sonata Arctica
Theatre of Tragedy
Therion
Tristania
Within Temptation

...so the list goes on. I love anything metal, death metal, gothic metal, symphonic metal and especially the interplay between a female sopprano voice and the male 'death' grunts - so called 'beauty and the beast' lyrics. Throw in an orchestra and a bunch of unusual instruments, meaningful lyrics, and I'm in heaven.

I don't see why one can't like both.

It's not like they are identical. Sure Coldplay have drawn inspiration from U2, but that doesn't mean they live in their shadow all the time. And Coldplay without any real vision? I think many people will disagree with you on that one.

I appreciate both band's music and the legacy that they have left. Although Coldplay's may not be apparent yet, in 20 or 30 years we'll be talking about them as one of the leading bands of the 2000s - just like U2 was one of the quintessential groups of the 80s.

Wow - you're the first person I've seen online or know in real life who has heard of them!  Almost unique and brilliant sound, my favourite tracks include Uis Elveti, Inis Mona and Tegernako.

Troja produce some good music too, what I've heard isn't overly heavy metal, more chilled out and laid back metal. They are from Pristina I think?

Another band I like from the same region are Tales of Dark, they formed in Novi Sad, Serbia, I seem to remember. Of Grandiose Fears and Passion Arcane is one of my favourite tracks from any artist, although tracking down the Album took forever - I tried all over Europe in every store I could find whenever I went travelling, but in the end had to send off to some place in Russia for it via Amazon.

Anita, Anders and Ingfrid left TSOTB in 2001 IIRC and the band fell silent, supposidly they regrouped two years ago, but nothing has been heard since - no news, no album, and no gigs, so unfortunately I think they are all over which is a real shame. I like Perpetual Desolation, but the CD/DVD they released later of a live show was a bit poor - it's a gothic metal gig, yet everybody's stood around like lemings and then clap politely at the end of each song... wtf, it's heavy metal... use your head!   

Wihin Temptation unfortunately went down the more profitable road towards the 'mainstream', and softened up as they did. I still like their more recent music, but nothing will compare to Enter which is by far their best and deepest work.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Seen them several times, and they just can't be beat. I've seen them 5 times or so in the past 5 weeks - Meadowlands three times, Madison Square Garden last week and Milwaukee last night.

They do a three-plus hour long show with no stoppages, just good old-fashioned rock.

Quite honestly, after seeing Springsteen, I don't think I can go to any other concerts - Springsteen is unbeatable in my book.

Oh man - can't believe this is the first mention of Gahan, Gore, et al in this thread. Talk about underrated and quickly-forgotten talent.

Wow - you're the first person I've seen online or know in real life who has heard of them

Really?? I know alot of people who know of them. Hell I saw them live on November 4. I got to meet Chrigel too...see the self pic thread. Big grin Seriously if you're ever in Toronto let me know and I'll find out if there are any concerts going on at that time and you should come with.

Mine would definitely have to be AC/DC. Plus seeing them in concert on 6 November in Austin only strengthened my love for them. Angus Young is a GOD!!!  Cool

Hm, that's a tough one.

Kraftwerk & Underworld are two of my favourite bands and both of them are a blast to experience live (And I've been fortunate enough to see Kraftwerk during their "transition-from-analog-to-digital" period, where they toured VERY little, since it literally meant having to pack up their entire Kling Klang studio and taking it with them). Another favourite is Leftfield, who certainly could give some of the heavy rockers a run for the money when it came to volume 

These days I'm "discovering" The Orb and Brian Eno, trying to dig up some of the stuff they've done.

As I am a tad older than many of you, I go back a ways for my faves
#1 would be The Who - Townshend's far and away my favorite songwriter. Their live shows back when they were in their prime were spectacular. I can't call Pete and Roger going out in recent years The Who even if they still do.

Others from my era that I'd rank as my faves
Led Zep
The Stones
Yes
Scorpions
Nektar (obscure British band from the 70's - a cross between Yes, Genesis and Zeppelin)

In a different genre - Return to Forever. Simply the most amazing group of musiciams ever assembled in a single band. Saw their re-union tour last year and am still blown away

Wow A.net is like a metal fan club. Interesting.

Descendants.

They were great. "Coolidge" that your son-in-law is in it (though you shouldn't tell him you spelled it wrong, they spelled it DescendEnts...). Who is he?

Anyway, I have WAAAY too many favorites to list. but I'm amazed that the Beatles haven't appeared many more times on people's lists above (shows the sample is heavily tipped toward metal bands, especially those whose members are pilots...nothing against metal, in fact I love a lot of metal, but Iron Maiden wouldn't be on my list of favorite metal bands either...)

Besides the Beatles, there's the Clash, Radiohead, the Pogues, Blondie, the Pixies, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Procol Harum, Parliament, the Kinks, X-Ray Spex, The Shins, etc. etc., etc., etc. I'm sure I'm forgetting tons.

And that's only what comes to mind, and only "bands" (versus individual performers, rappers, songwriters, etc.), and only "rock" music (versus Irish bands, Romany/Gypsy bands, Jazz bands, etc. etc.) and not including classical orchestras and ensembles, and...oh this thread is too restrictive!!!!!  wink 

OK, I guess I'll just say the Beatles.

You be lucky! Wasn't that the last concert at the Spectrum?

Pearl Jam did four shows at the Spectrum, I went to night #1. They closed it out on Halloween. I have a really cool Pearl Jam tee shirt from the show with a wrecking ball on it, they were the last even ever for the Spectrum. I tell you I've seen concerts at many venues including the Wachovia Center, MSG, Key Arena etc.. The Spectrum had a great sound, even Eddie Vedder commented how great the place sounded. They also played videos of the greatest events at the Spectrum over the years, very cool.
