Firstly thank you sooo much! :D :bounce:
As for what the people think, i guess this is going to sound confusing but I mean like "who to you was the ultimate rock band who made rock'...who had al the components that a rock band needed and what are these componenets... ;)

Thanks so much for the names though, greatly appreciated :D

Your welcome. :)

I gotta say that the king of rock n roll would be Elvis. But he was a solo artist. So it may not apply to your question, right?

Then the Beatles came along and made rock much cooler. They were talented songwriters and were trend starters. The 'Beatles' haircut was really hip back in the days.

Then of course the Rolling Stones also added their own flavor to rock, much more sexual comparede to the Beatles. Also had a cool dress style and really catchy songs. Honky Tonk Woman, I Can't Get No Satisfaction, Sympathy For The Devil are classic songs.

All the other bands pretty much followed their footsteps.

As to what the components are in order to make a successful rock band....well, I would say:

1. personal style. E.g. David Bowie with his make up and glam rock. Weezer with their geeky style.
2. catchy tunes.
3. being outspoken and brash. Listen to the greatest rock stars talk about taking drugs, all the sex that they have, how great and talented they are....etc.

There are more, but It's all I can only come up right now. :)
