4 of your 70’s bands are from the 60’s!Had a conversation recently with a fellow music fan. He said the best British bands in his opinion came in the decades from the sixties up to the nineties, and then stopped. So this got me thinking about my " favourite" British bands from those decades. Breaking it down to top 6 in each category here's mine.
60's. Beatles- Stones- The Who- The Kinks- Small Faces- Cream.
70's. Deep Purple - Black Sabbath - Led Zeppelin- Queen-Hawkwind- Genesis.
80's. U2- Simple Minds- Big Country- Iron Maiden- Motorhead - Tears For Fears.
90's. Radiohead - Oasis - Manic Street Preachers- Stereophonics- The Verve- The Charlatans.
Not easy choosing six bands, as many bands carried on through all the decades. Pink Floyd for instance !
Just British bands !
