Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

I have no problem dropping the Yardbirds for either and come on UFO and Rainbow are footnotes in rock n roll compared to Bob Seger

Seger's already in.

I'd second J. Geils, and I'd also be okay getting rid of UFO.  Yardbirds, because of their historical importance, I'd have a hard time dumping.  Hell, Led Zep/Page stole a good chunk of their music from old Y'birds sets, that's gotta count for something.

opps didn't see Seger good he uis in.  Yeah Yardbirds historical importance is a big factor to keep them.

Andrew I have seen both UFO and Rainbow in concert and both were great shows.  Rainbow over UFO for over all importance to riock n roll and hits they had.  I still think J Geils had more of a lasting impression on the rock world.
