Excluding the lads (and similar incarnations like The Move, CSN, Allan's solo albums, and whatnot), what/who are your favorite recording artists?

Let's limit this so that we exclude classical music, opera, and suchlike.

I'm picking my favorites based more or less on how much I listen to them and by how many albums of that artist I own.

So, here goes nuthin'.

1. Badfinger (the closest thing we had to the Beatles' music in the 1970's)
2. Beatles (C'mon, now, who could be better?)
3. Alison Krauss & Union Station (I regularly need my bluegrass fix)

No one else really comes close as I look at my list of discs.

Honorable mention goes to the Rolling Stones (pre-Ronny Wood), Beach Boys (pre-Kokomo), the Monkees (my guilty pleasure), and the Who (best live band ever?).

Some 70's stuff,
And all 80's music.

Never liked the 'noise' that was made in the 90's.

There are probably a lot of songs I like, but not devoted to the artist, like the Faith Hill one in Pearl Harbour and the Steve Tyler one (can't remember his group), can't quite remember the name of the song, but I think it was in a Bruce Wilis film, it's too early for me to sit and think hard Confused .

I generally like guitar bands, the seed having been set by hearing the Hollies. In recent years I have also developed an appreciation of the blues.

Other favourites include:
Cheap Trick (Robin Zander has one of the greatest pop/rock voices I have heard)
Tears For Fears
Hootie and the Blowfish
Foo Fighters (my children are amazed)
Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green era)

I too enjoy some John Denver (the early stuff) and Leo Sayer. I have also started collecting Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins and Keb Mo among a variety of past & present blues artists. One or two Hollies tunes have a blues influence. I would love to hear Tony Hicks play the blues.

Hi Folks!

If you like The Hollies you like harmonygroups and my favoritgroup after The Hollies is a swedish acapellagroup called The Real Group.

If you watch their webbsite http://www.realgroup.se you can see a videoclip from a concert in Dalhalla.

Would you believe the Hollies had power to stay by evolution of their style from Buddy Holly ? That's for certain because they follow what goes around, write on and go out on the road. They did it then, they do it now - please do it always.

Apart from the Hollies, another big thing for me must be fellow Mancunian act 10cc whilst I also consider Eric Stewart's earlier roots in the Mindbenders of interest. Apart from the Hollies, Beatles, Move and Mindbenders my other favourite sixties acts are probably the American harmonisers Simon and Garfunkel and the Mamas and Papas.
Moving into the 1970s (I don't follow much post-1980 music) I had a weakness for several Glam Rock acts including Mud, Wizzard and Slade, also slightly more serious stuff a la 10cc and ELO while, by the decade's end, had become a serious Blondie convert.
