I've been to London, seen seven wonders.
Always said the best bands are mostly British and that the US lags far behind. Looked online and if you believe a few polls say its either Aerosmith or Bruce Springsteen and the E street band but im not having that (Aerosmith ffs), anyway who do think is the best American band of all time? for me it goes like this
#3 Lynyrd Skynryd
#2 The Band
and far and away
#1 Steely Dan

I have to defer to my record/CD collection and it's:-

The Doors
The Band
The Beach Boys
The Eagles
Steely Dan
REM

I have to put The Doors and The Band at the top because of the effect that they along with The Beatles, The Who and Led Zeppelin had on me and my music taste growing up as a teenager in the '60s/'70s
