YES

YES was a progressive rock band that formed in London in 1968. Despite many lineup changes, occasional splits and many changes in popular music, the band has endured for over 35 years and still retains a strong international following. Their music is marked by sharp dynamic contrasts, often extended song lengths, and a general showcasing of its members' instrumentalism. Probably the most ambitious musically of their genre, Yes manages to use symphonic and other so called "classical" structures with their blend of musical styles - including some innovations - in a happy constructive "marriage" of music. Hit songs include "Roundabout", "I've Seen All Good People" and "Owner of a Lonely Heart".

The Allman Brothers

The Allman Brothers Band was formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969, and consisted of Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar), Gregg Allman (vocals, organ), Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals), Berry Oakley (bass guitar), Butch Trucks (drums) and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson (drums). Duane Allman died not long after the Fillmore East album was certified gold, leading to several re-configurations of the band. The band dissolved in 1982, only to reform again in 1989. The band has toured constantly since, with several changes in lineup and moderate commercial success. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine named Duane Allman, Warren Haynes, Dickey Betts, and Derek Trucks to their list of 100 greatest guitarists of all time, with Allman coming in at #2 and Trucks being the youngest guitarist on their list. The Allman Brothers won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1996 for "Jessica" and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.

Nilmerf must be rolling over in his grave if he saw where the Brothers got seeded. I really enjoy YES, still a good band today.
