I should have added REM to my list. At their peak they were awesome.
I left The Beatles off purely because of all the screaming girlies. I went to see T.Rex at the point they stopped being a hippy duo and turned into and electric teenybopper combo. Ride A White Swan and Get It On had turned them into a big act and I was swamped with screaming prepubescent girls. Rolf Harris would have loved it!
