Let's face it, English bands are the best!
I'm uh Murican, so what I say is the LAW, K? Let's start with that. (I'm jokin, K?)

Now, I know that there are great American bands but the English bands are the best, there is absolutely no doubt!

So let me start with the very best, the band with the best songs and best singer, Ladies and Gentlemen:

THE ROLLING STONES!

Then, in no particular order of excellence, we have:

The Who
The Beatles
The Kinks
The Animals
Pink Floyd
Cream
Led Zeppelin
Jeff Beck
Traffic
Deep Purple
Black Sabbath
Free
Bad Company
Jethro Tull
Family
The Faces
Humble Pie
Genesis
King Crimson
Richard Thompson
David Bowie
Roxy Music
Sex Pistols and PIL
Clash
Psychedelic Furs
Joy Division and New Order
Everything But the Girl
Radiohead
Coldplay
Cornershop
Muse
Manic Street Preachers
Oasis

...I suppose I could go on, because the list is basically endless. Also, I'm sure I've forgotten some great ones.

Anybody agree?

Hmmm, interesting theory. Did you come up with that one all by yourself? (Sorry, I couldn't resist).

But hey, by way of example, I think you might be talking about this right here:

For sure!

How about fookin UFO??? Shit, how could I forget them on the first list.

And God! Supertramp!

And some obscure ones like Patto, Boxer, and Lungfish.

And some of those guys I don't know much about, like Stone Roses and Happy Mondays.

I guess I can't put Thin Lizzy, the Pogues, and U2 on the list, not to mention AC/DC. Sorry, they just don't qualify.

(Ya know, it's 9:30am in beautiful, sunny Northern Thailand right now. Means it's late in the States, huh? And God only knows what time it is in England!)

Be my guest.

Funny, but Oasis is a band many Muricans love to loathe, probably because of the boorish behavior of the lead singer. But I will certainly admit, Liam and Noel are two of the FUNNIEST blokes in the world, based on their interviews. But their humor is way too English, too dark for most Muricans to understand. This song here, Champagne? is a stroke of brilliance, in my view. Every time I hear it I hum it for

You missed IQ
1 John 1–3._ 1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.

I was at Wembley for Live Aid - Queen stole the whole show.

I had a friend videotape the show from TV for me, and watched if after I got home - The TV coverage didn't do them justice.

They were many orders of magnitude better 'Live' than it looked on TV

Sorry kids, I need to take a break, my sweet little Thai wife's calling me...

Huh, baby? You want me to do WHAT to you??? OMG! Well, OK, but no more for at least a few hours, K? I mean, after all, I'm 67 and you're only 35, so you can't really expect me to...

(God, I hope no American or English femmes read this, they'll be pissed. More than one of them has called me a pervert. To which I can only reply: "Well, not really. You see, my wife's a FEMALE!")

OK BABY! Daddy'll be right there! Amuse yourself til I get there, K?
