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 ! 🎸🎤🎸
4 of your 70’s bands are from the 60’s!

If you can call them a band rather than group then include:

80s: Pet Shop Boys
90s: Prodigy

Saw Transvision vamp live twice at Aston Villa leisure centre they were great live and I had a soft spot for Wendy James🤪👍
Adam and the Ants probably made one of my fav albums Kings of the wild frontier!!

South Leics...unfortunately
Love my mod music from the Small faces to The Jam... but the 90s was fricking awesome. Feel sorry for the kids these days. Special mention to that period 77 to 82.... Pistols... Jam.... the whole 2tone movement.

She was certainly an attractive lady!
Saw Adam and the Ants at a festival a few years ago. Afternoon slot, sun was shining- it was great!
