There are two groups that were never favorites of mine that I currently absolutelyLOVE. I can kick myself for not getting really into them 40 or 50 years ago------the Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead.

Fra-- I bought their early hit single Don't You Want Somebody To Love. Grace Slick's voice always freaked me out. But I really didn't care that much about the Psychedelic side of it.

 

Years later. That's really decades later, I got into Jefferson Starship. And Grace's voice was better than ever.

 

The group I should have gotten into was The Doors. It's about the cleanest rock and roll sound I've ever heard and the drummer was unbelievable.

 

It was incredibly unfair how bad the Press was surrounding Jim Morrison. It was almost like a conspiracy thing.

It's hard to think of Cream as a British Invasion band,

as they came along later than bands like the Beatles

and the Stones. It's also a bit unusual to think of an

article about Cream in Sixteen magazine, though not

impossible. Jack Bruce's favorite color is blue.

True about the time frame regarding Cream.

 

However, see the difficulty I had in naming  10 favourite bands who existed only since I was born regardless of where the band was born.

 

Guns and Roses was a good band too who came along in my era.  They are probably my favourite band who started in my era and are not together anymore

Kraftwerk

Cream just doesn't fit that teenybopper image that some

of the BI bands had, whether they wanted to or not.

My parents had friends whose daughter was a Herman

Hermits' fanatic. So whenever we went to their house

for dinner, I got my fill of Herman. No mas.

I liked the first album by Smashing Pumpkins, but each successive album less. The Breeders were good (I saw them live opening for Nirvana). I had that one Mazzy Star album. I don't know how many they released. I have a couple of Kraftwerk and X songs on my mp3 player. ABBA has some good workout tunes.

 

 

I forgot The Pixies, The Dead Milkmen, INXS, ELP, Siouxsie and the Banshees and They Might Be Giants. I liked all of them, as well. Probably more, when they come to me.

Vautrin--

 

I think you're right about that. And initially I didn't have Cream on my the list. I had the Zombies.

 

But I went back and I looked at the 1968 records and the Bee Gees, all those other groups from 1968 are the last wave of the British Invasion.

 

As I can recall, it was more or less Spencer Davis with Stevie Winwood, Rod Stewart and Small Faces and Cream. Now I think I should have put Spencer Davis and Stevie Winwood in there instead--

 

In hindsight maybe the Moody Blues.

 

At any rate, Cream was at the very end, which means they were also at the very beginning of Hard Rock

 

-- and then you go into Iron Butterfly.

 

**But it's also good to remember that Eric Clapton was very much in The Yardbirds before Jeff Beck. And that was a big disappointment for him in hindsight.**

TO the member formerly known as a GPF--

 

You can squeak by with the beautiful and multi-talented Davy Jones in the Monkees as being British.

 

But if you try to take Jim Morrison and the Doors away from us Americans, I'm afraid there would be another Revolution. LOL

How did  The Doors end up on my British list?

 

Gee whiz, I was trying hard to keep track of my top ton lists, I know The Doors are American.

 

Can I claim tiredness?
