Led zeppelin does suck tho, jimmy paige is the most unoriginal and harshly sounding shit guitar i have ever heard. power chord blues... he made the blues cliche with his shitty music. Shure is has a couple good tunes but wow, most of their stuff is this fake bullshit.... the singer doesnt sing anything real, just fake bullshit like the beatles and the rolling stones,,,
all these british bands are making this copycat crap music, haha so lame!!....!!>>>!>.1
oh and eric clapton adds another notch to that list... the guys is horrible--- lets see how many blues licks i can play with this shiny piece of wood!! HE IS SO UNORIGINAL HOLY GUACOMOLE couldnt make any innovation if he tried, its a job for him such a lame guy.
AND BY THE WAY--- I HAVE OBJECTIVELY LISTENED TO ALL OF THESE ALBUMS AND THEN REALIZED THAT THEY ALL SUCKED AND THAT THEY WERE COINCIDENTALLY FROM BRITAIN LOL.
Nothing against britain.
Its not like I have a pride for my country as most music here sucks too... but there aren't any awesome musicians outside of our country it seems
oh, and half of the Hendrix Experience was british. Page (not paige) is somewhat similar to hendrix.
Yeah and what did they do? - next to nothing.
another good british band is Robin Trower (again, blues).
Got his stuff, simple hendrix clone ... no originality whatsoever...
Try Pink Floyd.
Ok, I admit from what I heard they are ok. But the guitar work is too robotic.. and their live shows have a million people onstage so ridiculous.. No, I'll leave them with mediocre, still have to look into sid barrett though..
Steve Morse is possibly the worst guitarist I have ever seen and heard...
Again, mediocre... Have their stuff.. The guitarist Mark Knopfler was a huge disappointment for me..
Over produced music, but I will admit that he was good. But Are you sure he wasn't american?
Just recently watched their live dvd set from a famous concert when they were in their prime... THEY SUCK! Townshend is the up there with Steve Morse as a horrible guitarist!!!! The who really are just another unoriginal band with not innovative and bad sounds.....
Saw the stuff on your website and it sucked hard. They are into finger technique,,, not music... They really are horrid... Like Ynwgwie Malmsteen..
Cream (eric clapton is in it)
Cream was disgusting--- another not innovative and cliche crap project of Clapton... Just watched a dvd of theirs as well.. disappointing as usual with clapton.. What a bad person... SO unoriginal that his name should be in the definition webster.
Apocalyptica, Cradle of filth, Epica, Khold, Kamelot, Nightwish, 69eyes, Dir En Grey, Anathema, Anglagard, Sabbath, Cream, Cranberries, Sonata Artica, Deep Purple, Drain Sth(Stockholm), Judas Priest... to name some.
Look to this day, For yesterday is already a dream. And tomorrow only a vision. But today We lived, makes every Yesterday a dream of Happiness and every tomorrow A vision of hope. Look well there to This day.
Robin Trower is not simply a Hendrix clone. that fact that you think this makes me doubt your judgement capabilities w/ music.
You have never heard Dark Side of the Moon? Wish You Were Here? Animals? The Wall?
Try Deep Purple, mk II. Ian Gilliam the singer, Ritchie Blackmore the guitarist, one hell of a pianist (forgot name), and the bassist ain't bad. Look up the song April by them.
Cat Stevens grew up in England w/o a doubt.
You need to listen to the older who--the group from the 60s. right now, thier missing half the group--Entwistle and Moon due to their deaths. Moon's death did to the WHo what Bonham's death did to Zeppelin--ended it. the Who just didn't stop. For their time, they are quite original.
As to yes, you've never listened to their album Fragile. The entire band is quite talented. Roundabout is incredible. Heart of the Sunrise is really good, too, if 14 minutes long.
As to Zep, listen to some of their live stuff. You have four incredibly talented people--their bassist ranks as among the best (not to mention the stuff he could do on the piano. Listen to the song No Quarter, preferably the live version. Bonham the drummer is insane. If you don't like Plant's singing, too bad. He and Page were practically as one--a live version of Dazed and Confused will let you see what Plant did live--there aren't too many singers today who do that. And if you don't like Yes because of their "finger focus", Page doesn't have that. Try looking at the chords in the songs--very few are what you termed "blues power chords". there isn't even such a thing--a power chord is 1,5,8 (optional) of a scale. Furthermore, every song does not even start in the same manner--and the only two that are remarkably similar are their most trad. blues pieced--Since I've Been Loving You and Tea for One.
oh, and we've proved you wrong. Your acceptance of Floyd and Stevens makes your claim moot.
Most of the music I listen to is from outside the US. It is probably too complex for your tastes but it suits me just fine.
Genesis - Tresspass to Then There Were Three, nothing else (Foxtrot and Selling England by the Pound are the best) (UK) Yes - prior to 90210 (UK) Pink Floyd (UK) Jethro Tull (UK) King Crimson (UK) Frank Zappa (US) Emerson Lake and Palmer (UK) Jimi Hendrix (US)
And the better works of the more obscure -
Gentle Giant (UK) National Health (UK) Magma (FR) Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso (IT) Soft Machine (UK) Hatfield and the North (UK) Balleto Di Bronzo (IT) Ozric Tentacles (UK) Thinking Plague (US) Sleepytime Gorilla Museum (US) Spoonfed Tribe (US) Happy the Man (US) Djam Karet (US) Area (IT) Alimaalman Vasarat (FIN) Semiramis (IT) Tipographica (JP) Arti + Mestieri (IT) Bubu (AR) Brand X (UK) Caravan (UK) DeusEx Machina (IT) Dun (FR) 801 (UK) Eskaton (FR) Peter Frohmader (GE) PFM (IT) Kenso (JP) Le orme (IT) Egg (UK) Supersister (NE) Van Der Graaf Generator (UK) Yezda Urfa (US) Anekdoten (SWE) Anglagard (SWE) :) (thanks for the mention Alacrity)
Al Di Meola (AR) will blow the doors off anyone on guitar, including Zappa and Hendrix, but he is primarily classical/jazz.
