My List Of Favorite Bands (Rock, Jazz, Etc.)

I like music. I always have. I can't listen to a song anymore without seeing the chord changes in my mind (yes, I said SEE). These are the bands that really have influenced me over the years, the bands that have caught my musical attention when there was so much dross out there. You won't find any rap groups or punk bands on here (sorry folks, I'm sure there are sites out there that cover that). These bands are special to me and they are listed in no particular order.
