Don't forget Dear Diary. I don't know why but that's one of my favorites by the Moody Blues.


Or “The Story In Your Eyes”

Nothing “offbeat” about them. Fabulous, powerful vocals, one of the best guitarists anywhere, and a list of hits that rivals all the great acts of the period, right up until today!!

A Punny Joke - I am not a musician. Frankly, my stuff began in the early '60's and I was far more interested in cars, motorcycles and girls - reverse order. Think record player with a changer and 2 copies of good background.

I saw an interview with Bill Withers once. The interviewer told Mr. Withers that "Ain No Sunshine" wasn't proper use of the English language to which Mr. Withers replied "I know, I know, I know, I know, I know."

Ann Wilson was, and may still be, one of the best female vocalists of all time. Nancy Wilson (her sister) is one of the most accomplished female guitarists of all time. Together, they both form Heart. If you've never heard them, you're missing out on gem of a band.

 

Absolutely! Watch them live doing 'Crazy On You' or 'Barracuda' back in the day, or their cover of 'Stairway to Heaven' in honor of Led Zeppelin at the Kennedy Center Honors more recently, and it leaves little doubt as to their talent.

Thank you, everyone. Forgot a ton of those over the last 50 years or so. This is going to be fun. My old CD changer out in the shop is on its last leg and a lot of my CD’s won’t play anymore.

@Calamity Kris already mentioned the band YES:

 

The band's sound is influenced by psychedelic rock and classical music, and features Jon Anderson's vocals, Steve Howe's guitar, Chris Squire's bass, and Rick Wakeman's keyboards.

 

However; in addition, these other two BANDS ruled the Progressive Rock genre.

 

ELP

 

The band's members are Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (vocals, bass, guitars, and producer), and Carl Palmer (drums and percussion). 

 

King Crimson

 

Founded by Robert Fripp, Michael Giles, Greg Lake, Ian McDonald and Peter Sinfield, the band initially focused on a dramatic sound layered with Mellotron, McDonald's saxophone and flute, and Lake's bass and powerful lead vocals.

I think we’re starting to repeat the groups. Just my observation.;)

I think Peter Gabriel era Genesis and Rush post John Rutsey might vie for some credit on the prog rock scene.
