    The Stones are pretty awesome too. They were my father's favorite band (besides Jethro Tull).

    You can tell how good a band is by how they sound live. There are a lot of bands that I like that do not (or did not back in their day) sound so great live.

    Cream has to be in the top ten. BF was great but I wouldn't put them in the top ten due to so little production. Same with the other one shot effort EC was in-Derek and the Dominoes

    Cream had everything-wonderful song writing. brilliant singing (Jack Bruce-one of the best) maybe the best guitar work going at the time (EC) and the Bruce-Baker rhythm was as good as it got. I rate Jack Bruce as the best rock bassist of all time due to his multi-talents.

    the band that sounded the best live compared to their records

    1) Grateful Dead-but then again they played so many live concerts
    2) Stones
    3) LZ

    and actually the best IMHO-the RAMONES

    This would be a lot easier if it was best rock bands from the 70s or what not. :) It is just too general and there are just too many great bands.

    I would have disagree about the Dead. While some of their stuff is okay, that is not really my kind of music. It's too slow and folksy for me much of the time, so that is another reason why these types of threads don't mean anything, because music is subjective to the listener.

    What about old Aerosmith (before MTV, of course).



    What about old Van Halen?

    Well, I'm sure there are some people who would think they were the best too! :) Eddie Van Halen?
