Joe the Troll's ABCs of Music

1. Mose Allison
2. Jeff Beck
4. Dr. John
5. ELP
6. Bela Fleck
7. Grateful Dead (I hated choosing between them & Peter Gabriel)
8. Hot Tuna
9. Iron Butterfly (not actually a big fan, but "I" is a toughie.)
10. Jethro Tull
11. King Crimson
12. Little Feat
13. Mahavishnu Orchestra
14. National Health
15. Anders Osborne
16. Pink Floyd
17. Queen
18. Max Roach
19. Steely Dan
20. Taj Majal
21. U.K.
22. Violent Femmes
23. The Who
24. XTC
25. Yes
26. Frank Zappa

Well, I guess I saw both extremes on this one. There were several letters where I had to choose between ones I like a lot (like with "G") and at least one where I had to choose between bands I didn't care that much for. I mean, Iron Butterfly is OKAY, I guess. They come out ahead of anyone else I can think of that starts with "I" (that being the Indigo Girls, Insane Clown Posse, the Isley Bros. and Tommy Iommi. Yeesh).

I don't normally like to tag people, so I'll just tag O'Tim, because he'll love it.

Mahavishnu, even! Very cool.
Are you playing "Thanks for Xmas" by XTC these days?

Annie - I just heard it for the first time today, over at Nat's! There's a link in the sidebar if you don't know the way.
