Title say it all. For here three that stand out most
RUSH: 3ed only to the The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in most consecutive gold album. 2112 and Moving Pictures are to of the best albums ever made. There live show is one of the best around. There also already in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Bad Religion: One of the biggest bands to make it out of Hardcore punk scene of the 1980's. Help start Independent record labels boom in the 1980's with the making of Epitaph Records. Save punk with 1988's Suffer and 1989's No Control. Also help start the warped tour.
Jim Croce: A very underrated singer songwriter of the 1960's and 1970's. Lot of great hits like I got a Name, These Days, and Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels) to name a few. His live show was also one of a kind. As it was just him and his good friend Maury Muehleisen and there guitars and a piano player. No big stage show which is something you don't see a lot these days or when he played.He was also taken way to soon when he was just about to quit playing music so he could raised his kids.
