Best Bands of All Time. Top 5: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, R.E.M., Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin
Ignacio Zara

As always, this is my personal choice and I’ve chosen my top 5 bands. There are many excellent bands not included here but… this is my very personal choice. For me, these are the Top#5 bands in history: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, R.E.M., Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin

1.- The Beatles

They were a revolution and their legend is magnificent. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr… they are, still, a legend for the music.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, Charlie Watts. Like or not, they are a living symbol of rock and a lifestyle

Mike Mills, Michael Stipe, Bill Rieflin, Peter Buck. Maybe this is personal choice but Losing my Religion is one of my favorite songs.
