    Top of my list is DMB's Two Step. But I will cast a vote for Hotel California.

    It should given they may be the three greatest in Rock history.

    IMO, The Who had the best rhythm section and drummer in Rock history. Pete is also one of Rock's best songwriters and composers.

    IMO, The Beatles are the greatest Rock band. There has never been a better songwriting duo and George never got the credit he deserved.

    IMO, The Rolling Stones needed nothing more than Richards. Keith wrote the greatest riffs in Rock history.

    I'll put in a vote for the most underrated great band in rock history:

    The Kinks.

    Ball and Chain at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 is an All Time Great Performance:

    Agreed the Beatles were the best, and most influential rock band of all time. The Who was great, and so were the Stones. I think Queen never really got the acclaim they deserved, only the Beatles had more sheer talent, and even that was very close.

    I'm gonna jump in here again. Just heard

    The Police - So Lonely.

    Ah, that post-punk sound. Very, very raw, and great because of it. Similar to The Ramones.

    Copeland, perhaps the best rock drummer, ever...

    My 13yo son (drummerdevil 'round here) worships him! I think Copeland has 4 arms - or a dub track - though I did see him live once, and he played with just the two got graced him with...

    There is a group of drummers -- Carl Palmer, Keith Moon, Neil Peart, John Bonham -- that were surely sui generis. But I would argue that the best and most influential drummer was Levon Helm. Even in later life (and damn, what a small-b band this was):

    And

    https://youtu.be/15T4N4FSWPw

    And of course, the classic from The Last Waltz:

    My son doesn't expect drummers to sing. (OK, there've been a few...)

    Try Copeland here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB65_CVbo-0

    or here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmBdz1txGSo

    Best ever? Hard to say. But he's really, really good.

    Agreed, saw The Police in '83 (the opener was a band just hitting college radio at the time R.E.M. Whose Radio Free Europe hit the underground bonanza). All three of those guys were really top pro musicians.

    Also saw them in Page Auditorium in '85 or '86 and he was sho nuff sloppy drunk.

    In '83 they looked like a bunch of scared kids who had gone from bars in Athens to 18,000 seat arenas in places where no one had really heard of them. I really just remember Peter Buck jumping around a lot from that first show, and not understanding a word of the lyrics.

    Not surprised. That was his usual on-stage persona...

    Again (alas) wasted talent.

    hard to say they were a "wasted talent" when they made hundreds of millions of touring/merch dollars and sold about 85 million records...that's not really shabby...

    There is a great documentary on Netflix (I believe) that Andy Summers did on the Police. Worth the time. More wasted talent, yet somehow produced.
