 I would say The Who but I think my mental health would start to decline more quickly

God forbid a  ROCK & ROLL band that actually writes their own music (Pete Townshend) should be above any thieving magpies.

I think you're misunderstanding. I love The Who, but some of their stuff really depresses me

I think you are confusing The Who with Nirvana.... hehehe.

This will make you feel better.

Best R & R band of all time

12 11 and Hendrix . And wait a minute Sir . Are you on a Led Zeppelin Forum calling then Thieving Magpies ? But the way , the example song you gave of the “ Best Rock Roll Band “ was a little lackluster . That could have been any bar band in any city . Maybe Reign , or Who are you ? That’s like me calling Led Zeppelin the Best band of all time, which they most certainly are , not even a close second . And then using Hot Dog from any 1980 show as the example .  Just not a great pick .

Oh come on. I'm not a big fan of "The Who" but even I can recognize that that Rock n Roll Circus performance of "A Quick One" is pretty slamming. A much better song than "Hot Dog"...and I like "Hot Dog".

Alright that was maybe a bad example. But honestly studio HotDog I love. This is probably for another thread, but did you get to see The Who is the prime, or close to it?

I consider "prime Who" to be late-60s to 1971. I saw them twice with Keith Moon...once in 1973 and again in 1976. The Quadrophenia concert was a shambles and I was disappointed. 1976 was a little better as far as setlist and performance. But the fact it was an outdoor stadium show, which I loathe, and the crowd were a bunch of drunken fighting hooligans (even more than your typical rock crowd) left a bad taste in my mouth.

I saw them in 1979 and 1982 but without Moon, the bloom was off the Who for me.

I saw one the Who one last time...it was at one of their many "farewell" tours. 1989 I think...at the L.A. Coliseum. After that, I was through with the Who.

None of the shows I witnessed measured up to the greatness of "Live at Leeds" or any of the 1967-71 bootlegs...or 1974 Charlton Football Club.

I still love some of their records but whereas Led Zeppelin took me on an amazing journey in concert, the Who did not.

Thanks for the response. I envy your generation. What an exciting time. It’s amazing to listen to the bootlegs and feel the excitement in the air. Not that there isn’t good music today or certainly in the 1980’s and 1990’s . There were actually some really good bands to come out of those decades. But that was such a time of exploration in the 1960’s and 70’s. Zeppelin captivated me at an early age and it hasn’t changed in the 30 plus years. Amazing group of musicians, and performers.

I also from that generation.

To be honest there is basically no good music today--- not really.  10s, 00s, and 90s were pretty bleak actually.

Back in the 60s and 70s the difference was there was a lot of bands/musicians who were forced to pay their dues. If you weren't good you washed out--- nobody would listen to your shit--- much less buy it or pay to see you live.  Today that has changed, and younger people today will gladly consume CRAP that is fed to them like it is Kraft macaroni and cheese. 

Back and my day all genres were better. From County/Western, to soul, R&B, rock, pop--- all of it was better. Bands had to pay their dues and they did or they faded away.

I think a great example of this is the Beatles story. Yes, they were all naturally talented and had a deep well of inspiration inside them from birth. But by their own admission they didn't turn the corner until they went to Hamburg and actually had to play (gig) 7 days per week many hours a day. They became TIGHT as a band, and from there it opened up many more opportunities.  Today some CRAP can go out and find an audience and actually get a pay check--- all because kids have no ear or taste for what is good.

I agree with you. I was born in the middle of the 70’s, there are some pretty good bands that came out of the Generation that I grew up with. As far as the 80’s and 90’s at least some of those bands were coming up the way their predecessors did. Today it is totally crap for the most part.As is the early 2000’s

 While I did get to see some/ a lot of the musicians from your generation, to have been there when it was happening is something that can’t be matched. The closest I or my generation can come to it, is by listening to boots or live releases. But the consumption of crap that today’s youth is absorbing is pretty bad. It’s a lot of studio, computer generated, manufactured junk. I have an 11 year old that I’m trying to steer away from the shite listed above. But yes if you were not good in your generation, it was quickly found out and that was the end of it.

When you think of the talent that was coming out of the 60’s from England alone it is astonishing. If you start thinking of all the groups, and musicians to come out during that time and era it is hard to wrap your brain around. But I think the point you made about musicians/artists really working at what they did is an excellent point. I also think the work ethic of your generation and your parents generation has to have something to do with it. That’s simplified of course. There were many contributing factors to why and what made your generations music and musicians as insanely talented as they are and were. 
 

Having said that I’ll have to listen to my daughter sing her little heart out to some crap soon and love every minute of it. Then politely encourage her to try and sing some Janis, or at the least listen to it for her old man.

I liken it to the late '50s/ early '60s before the British invasion, after Buddy Holly died, Chuck Berry was tossed into jail, and Elvis got out of the Army and started making crappy movies instead of good music and the "industry" decided to manufacture crappy "hit songs" for mass consumption and there were plenty of dumb people buying it.  Business will always act that way---- try to convince you a product is worth having and spending money on.  But that only gets you so far, eventually people ought to figure out there is better music and sometimes it takes a Beatles, Kinks, The Who to come along and play real music, written by REAL talent, and cut through the pre-formed CRAP people are used to.

I’ve seen a few of these around Twitter, etc and thought it might be fun compared to all the heaviness surrounding us every day. 
The question is, if you could only listen to three of these bands while quarantined, which of these would you choose?
