Live Review-Stereophonics @ Webster Hall
Opening the show was fellow Welsh band People in Planes. Who were on tour to support their sophomore Rain Maida produced release Beyond the Horizon. The 'Phonics could not have brought a better band over to the States to open for them, as People in Planes caught the attention of the audience right away. Another band that will have a long successful career if they keep up the good work.
In related news, As Tall As Lions have emerged from hiding details about their forthcoming disc You Can't Take It With You. The band is hoping to have it out by March.

1- The Beatles
5-Rage Against The Machine
Now what is yours? Please post in the comments section your 10 Top bands (NO SOLO ARTISTS)
***Also I am a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen, but still consider him to be a solo artist***
