Best short-lived band?

1) Derek and the Dominoes
2) Stephen Stills Manassas
3) Orleans
Alice in chains... No doubt they lingered for about 7 years, with no real backing concert tours, and a few albums, but they were never really a band due to many obstacles, and still accomplished a lot of great music . And they were the first to really hit the scene from the "Grundge" capital, not nirvana.
NO-BRAINER: The Beatles.
not a band but, Jeff Buckley
Not vying for "Best" how about just "Some" short lived bands..............Beck Bogert & Appice, Dixie Dregs, Masters of Reality, Baker-Gurvitz Army, U.K. ,Sea Level,Charlie

I had fun going thru my collection.
