Sly & the Family Stone
Bruce Springsteen
Tom Waits
P. Funk
Lynard Skynard
Allman Brothers
Greatful Dead
Chicago
Aerosmith
Van Halen
The Ramones
Kiss
Alice Cooper



[withholding to see if I am being called out directly.]

Edit: Holy **** sticks this is about me.

1. how dare you?

2. Who the when? I said something about America owning roots music? Where?

3. Theres nothing rewarding about British music, its measured by the pound =P



We know where Dylan came from. I was getting drunk in Southie or I'd have called you out sooner.



Don't fake the funk. You're swinging for America's mighty jaw.
My case in point. You don't like British music as a whole. I could argue the same about American music but I won't because I happen to like American music.

I remember reading a post where you said that all modern music came from America which is true (I will find the post- I scoured this one but couldn't find it) but I am counter-balancing that with the fact that we took your building blocks and improved upon them.

I am English and should rightly champion our music but I have never once said that it's better than any other music. I am arguing the fact that you don't seem to want to give our music any respect whereas I have always gave respect where it's due.

How dare I? Well you did hanker for an argument in a lounge thread so I thought I would oblige with a well reasoned reply but instead you think it's a wholly personal attack

My music collection is probably split 40-40 regarding U.S and U.K with the other 20% being other countries, however I have to champion my nations music regardless of what era was better.

The difference here is that whilst I prefer UK music as a whole, I listen to U.S music just as much and acknowledge that whereas you seem hellbent on deconstructing our music even if it has not been as relevant recently.

Who has the best music? No one. We both have some awesome bands and some utter crap. I'm just sticking up for the music that has shaped me.

By Gods Name! JackHammer! that is one the most 'eloquent', diversed pieces of material/post I have ever read on a music forum, of course 'Big3' deserves half of the credits.

'eloquent' in commas makes me unsure as to your post! Unsure whether my post was good or bad.

I enjoy bands and artists from America and Britain so I don't really have an opinion on who's better of the two.

However, I do think that out of any corner of the world, us Scandinavians make the best music of all. In my opinion.

One of my absolute favorite bands of all-time (Blackmore's Night) is the perfect combination of British and American, with Candice Night and Ritchie Blackmore being the main two members. So I'll sit quite comfortably on the fence, hehe.

Haha, that may be. I guess I just never thought about it before, who has the best music (the US or the UK) since I'm not from either.

I just defend my own, but in reality they're both so well matched. Even though the music that shapes me is British music.. and my favourite bands are probably British.

Americans were so much better in the 00s it makes me sad.
