Who is the best band or artist by decade?
The question becomes difficult if you must sort it by decade. Some great bands or artists straddle a decade, so they don't really fit into one particular decade. They may be fabulous, but if they were great from '67 to '73 or something, it becomes problematic. Or, what to do with somebody like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Tom Waits, or Miles Davis?
So, if you must sort by decade only, take a stab at it...
Here are mine:
'30s and earlier: too early for me
'40s: I don't know. Hank Williams, maybe?
'50s: Elvis Presley?
'00s: Unknown. Not enough time to sink in yet.
'10s: The jury is out.
I'm only sure about the '60s through the '90s. Hey, that's my era...
