Most influential band of all time...


Well-known member
No question the Beatles. Most covered songs, ground breaking albums. Beach Boys Brian Wilson and his obsession and jealousy with St Peppers.

They certainly influenced Freddy and the Dreamers.

I'm not sure many bands are hugely influenced by other bands. There was a huge resemblance of UK female singer songs for 10 years. The "I couldn't care less" Dylan vocals are mimicked quite a lot. Also covers, but that's not new music influence.

John Mayall worked with musicians who took his ideas to other bands.


Well-known member
Muddy Waters

John Lee Hooker.

* B.B. King

without them you aint got no beatles or rolling stones.
