Worst Rock Band Ever !!!!


Who was/is the worst?

There's hope for you yet!  ;-)

I sort of get where you are coming from though I don't share the position.  It sort of reminds me of some of the aficionados over on the Jazz thread and their view of "real" jazz and jazz purity (my term for it).  Anyway, I'm curious how you felt/feel about the use of strings in rock.  I remember a conversation with a school chum long time ago...musta been in 7th or 8th grade.  He was incensed about the use of strings (maybe a new Doors album had come out).  Thought they had NO place in "rock".  I remember being somewhat taken aback by his vehemence.  Noteworthy that he had much older sisters - suspected influences on the development of his musical taste.

Seriously.  I'm interested in your perspective on strings in R&R or Rock...either or both.  

ghosthouse,

Strings can be great when used in the right place and well arranged.

Two examples pop to mind:

Nirvana - Something in the Way

Roxy Music - Love Me Madly Again

Whitesnake. They would be a good candidate for worst band.
@ghosthouse, yup, I'll be posting my thoughts. As a teaser, there are plenty of examples of them used in a way of which I approve ;-) ; Phil Spector, Brian Wilson, Roy Orbison, Randy Newman, The Lovin' Spoonful, and George Martin immediately come to mind. The use of brass (horns) is a related subject. Hint: my approved list won't include Chicago. I'll be back.
