In fairness, if it wasn't for the Stones and Beatles you probably wouldn't know about Muddy Waters etc. Jimi Hendrix would probably have never gotten anywhere if he hadn't come to Britain.There is a reason our forfathers fought and died to be rid of you......
Just kiddin. The beatles and a few stones songs are ok.
I'll admit it. I love Freebird. Couldn't listen to it for many years because of the original radio oversaturation, but now I'll crank it up if it comes on the radio. Killer song, beautiful guitar, killer piano on the live versions. Plus the chord progression at the end was one of the first things I learned on the guitar.
I have to agree. My top 5 favorite bands of all time are from the UK - Yes, ELP, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and Renaissance. That's not to say I don't like any American artists - I do. But I have to say, the UK produced some incredible musical genius'.Forgive me if my attitude is unpatriotic, but IMO the best music ever recorded has come from the UK...not to say that the US hasn't produced some amazing stuff too. But when I look at my top 20 favorite musical acts, 13 of them are British....and Skynyrd is not even on my top 20 list. Not even sorry. Lol
