I thought about this the other day. What is the greatest American rock and roll band?
It's a tougher question than one might think. When I think about rock history, the best bands are almost all British: the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, the Clash, etc. American bands tend to have a frontman (Buddy Holly, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, Sly Stone etc.) or are individuals with, in the main, a varying cast of sidemen (Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley).
So when I think about it, the bands that come to mind are:
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Whom would you pick?
