      Amazing band for Hard Rock.

      Brilliant guitar riff.

      Second favourite song of theirs.

      Favourite song from my fourth favourite band.

      I love every song off their "Houses of the Holy" album.
    • 5. Hotel California by The Eagles
    • 4. Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd
      Second best guitar to 'Stairway'.
    • 3. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
      Gotta love 'em.

      Needs no comment........

    Note* I've avoided putting down 'Stairway To Heaven' because it's in a category of it's own.

    • 10. Day Of The Eagle by Robin Trower
      Just a great solo and very underrated guitarist.
    • 9. Call Me The Breeze by Lynyrd Skynyrd
      One of the best songs to "cruise" to.
    • 8. Stranglehold by Ted Nugent
      Awesome song.
    • 7. Do You Feel Like I Do? by Peter Frampton
      Another lengthy but awesome song.
    • 6. Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple
      Fantastic song that always gets you pumped up!
    • 5. Time by Pink Floyd
      The best song from one of the best bands ever.
    • 4. Voodoo Chile by Stevie Ray Vaughn
      The best guitarist EVER.
    • 3. La Grange by ZZ Top
      Can't think of any person not loving this song...
    • 2. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zepplin
      Could be #1, Van Zant's grungy southern vocals are, in my opinion, more desired than Plant's.
    • 1. Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd
      Has everything you would want in a song.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd (Simple Man, Gimme Three Steps, Tuesday's Gone, and The Needle And The Spoon) wrap up the best true American band in the 70's.
