Cream, The Doors, The Who, and The Jimi Hendrix Experience are head and shoulders above all the rest. I’ll put Jethro Tull in at 5th and Traffic at 6th. Doesn’t musical ability apply to picking the best bands??? It doesn’t seem so here. Other musicians that are up there include Page and Bonham of Led Zep, AND Jeff Beck. 2 of the best all-time rock singers are Paul Rodgers and Eric Burden, plus Janis as the best female rock singer.
