    I prefer the more progressive stuff like Yes and Kansas ( Cream also ) , but CCR was important to where we are now for sure.

    And we see that GREAT guitar players are a dime a dozen , and not so many great bass players ( rock ).

    Billy Sheehan is the most unappreciated rock musician EVER. As funny as this sounds , he inspired me to STOP playing music.

    Electronic instruments are so much more dynamic than thier accoustic counterparts , and " big bands " went to the wayside. The digital age further seperates us from a group of human beings getting together and creating unique music.

    Just remember that there will never be a music trend that comes around from the one that you consider " the best " . New music is created from young , fresh minds that build on the past. I am guilty of holding on to my past , as there were some incredible musicians who have not been " bested " ( my opinion ). May they all be remembered and honored.

    Not a " big band " , but perhaps you will like this.

    I have the Best of Glenn Miller album set, it's something like six or eight albums. Somewhere over the years I lost album 2.

    Stan Getz, wow, I have some of his stuff.

    Over the years I have played the flute, trumpet, guitar, bass, and keyboards. I was a natural at the trumpet but it was not "cool" in high school so I gave it up. After high school when I was out on my own I picked up my first electric guitar. I do ok, but I am no where as good as I would like to be or should be.
