Graham Burfield… Pink Floyd, Genesis, Jethro Tull

Alex Chapman… The Rolling Stones

Sam Rosewell… Now you’re asking…… most probably The Jam (eclectic musical tastes here, so this may not be 100% accurate!)

Bob Cockburn… The Who……..obviously……..its in the question !!!!

Chris Giles…  wasn’t in to prog rock when I was 15 so got to say 1The Monkees 2.The Beatles, 2.The BeeGees

Bobby Posner… Showing my age but it was Buddy Holly and the Crickets

Will Cornell… Hmm, 1970….a lot of bands were faves but the one I’m proudest of in retrospect: the Beach Boys…and I caught hell for it. They were in the wilderness in their home country then. But listen to “Sunflower” today and compare it to the crap by the bands those who ribbed me then were gushing over, like the “Skull and Roses” double live Dead album (yawn) or “Closer to Home” by those posers Grand Funk. “Sunflower” blows them out of the water…the “Cool Cool Water”.
