So, summa my favorite bands are as follows : In the classic hits format - Black Sabbath (the best fab 4 as far as I'm concerned), The Who, Frank Zappa (the boss would argue this as a classic artist though), Beatles and of course Barry Williams.
As for non-classic rock : I'm a Clutch fanatic (the best band you never heard of), a huge Tom Waits fan and any soul music. Soul music is the effin' best. I'm a listener to all genres of music, but I certainly won't buy it all. Who can afford it?
