    Default Best Band?

    What's your favourite band? Mine's Dire Straits. Do any of you play a modern instrument?

    Um, I'm gonna say a slight more obscure one. Alien Love Child. Awesome stuff.

    And I'm an electric guitarist who got into classical to broaden his horizons.

    Queen are pretty good.... But I have to say my favourite band at the minute are Placebo.
    And, in answer to do I play a modern instrument, yes I play bass. :P

    There are and there have been lots of great bands, so it makes the answer kind of
    difficult. But in my humble opinion, The Beatles are the all time great pop/rock band.

    It's funny how people who listen to Classical music can have such unrefined tastes outside of that it, descending into the moron-music of Placebo, Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips or Breaking Benjamin.

    I'll mention those already posted in the 'Neoclassical' thread, viz: Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, King Crimson, Sol Invictus, Klaus Schulze, Dead Can Dance, Lustmord, Demilich, Summoning, Graveland, Immortal, Burzum

    (Sorry, I'm pretty bored right now...)
    Your job is to craft my doom... so I'm not sure how well I should wish you... but I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun. Ta-ta. "H."

    Anyone interested in Pink Floyd, note there is a concert tour in the UK next April of Australian Pink Floyd. I've seen them twice before and they are very good indeed. One of the best tribute groups around.

    I saw the real thing many times, and they of course were unbeatable, but this Australian band is a very good substitute. They get very close to the original sound, and their stage performance is impressive. Their repertoire is extensive, and the vocals are very good.

    Are there any other Floyd fans out there? Best band ever, along with the Beatles of course.
