Not guilty your honour, I think I'd have preferred them to some of the other 90s bands that just seem to bore people, bands like The Smiths, New Order, Happy Monday's (now there's an oxymoron if ever I saw one)

I did and they were superb. Very professional and made Blue look a second rate act (which they were of course!)

The Smiths split up in 1987 :roll:

Their legacy lives on beyond most bands before and after. Just saying.... even greater than HMHB....

It seemed like they went on forever, far too long that's for sure

I must confess, being a septuagenarian, that I've never been to a pop concert. The CDs in my car are at present Queen, Dire Straits, Fleetwood Mac and Beachboys.

The Smiths did produce some interesting music but they didn't go on forever. They split up in 1984 unlike The Stones, McCartney, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Queen, Kiss, Guns and Roses, Red Hot Chilly Peppers, Metallica, Def Leppard, and U2. I could on but these bands are all still playing live and/or recording in some form or another.
Now that is a legacy that really will live on.

Fortunately I can't recall anything by The Smiths, so their music certainly won't live on in this household. U2 are another from your list who's back catalogue I have totally forgotten. How dare you not mention The Kinks in your list. Are The Monkees still really going, or are you talking about the ones at the local zoo.

I did say 'I could go on' and yes The Monkees are still going!

The Monkees ARE still going, but only 3 of them. Davy Jones, a mate of Clive when he was alive, died 29th February 2012, the remaining three Members still talking about another 'tour'.

I dunno about AC/DC. They seem to be now Angus Young and special guests, even more now I believe Phil Judd is still detained in New Zealand. I never have been keen on Queen without Freddie, but I'll add Paul Weller and Jeff Lynne to your list.

As long as Angus is capable of putting on his shorts and cap the music will live on. I thought Queen sounded PDG with Adam Lambert doing the vocals. As for Paul Weller he could so easily have been in The Smiths, too pretentious. Although not being a great lover of ELO, I'll let you have that one but for me Dream Theater knock them out of the park. All a matter of opinions but mine are right :P
