Topic: greatest american artists??
When you think about music some pretty big names come up as being succesful and well known internationally (the beatles, the stones, for example). a lot of these seem to come from Europe... so the topic is, who do yall think is the most influencial musician (or band) that was from and based mainly in America?
guys like BB King, Hank Williams, and even bands I like, (CCR, and Skynyrd, for instance), were awesome, but are they as globally recognized as somebody like The Beatles, or the Rolling Stones, or even AcDc. EVERYBODY knows who the Beatles are, but if you were to go somewhere in Europe would American legends like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, or Muddy Waters be as well known??
I guess everybody knows who Elvis is of course....
