Best Psychedelic/Hippie/Stoner Band?
I like all sorts of music, but the past couple of days I've been into some trippy psychedelic stuff. The Doors, King Crimson and so on. For my money though, Pink Floyd is King of the genre. Excellent hypnotic music, good vocals and so one, but its the lyrics that make them the Kings, I think. It's so interpretive and open mixed with vivid but obscure imagery what somehow stays pretty relatable. What's your favorite?

Oh gosh....

Of course Pink Floyd...

Jefferson Airplane had a nice stoney groove at times. Grateful Dead or even now with Furthur have a legendary stoney groove...

'It's a beaufiiful day'
Big Brother and the Holding company.
Jimi Hendrix
Quicksilver Messenger Service
Moody blues
Traffic
Sometimes the YardBirds
Cream -- but that's more fun
Blind Faith

Can you tell, I'm going through my iPod.

Oooooh Iron Butterfly...

Little heavier but dang getting high and listening to 30 minutes or whatever of
Innagaddadavita...

Also, I love Planet Caravan by Black Sabbath...That's a huge stoney groove for me.

I'd add Blues Traveler to Moms list. Saw them several times. You got a contact high walking by the venue, nevermind going inside Smile

Kenny Rogers lol:





On the modern side check out Tool (I consider them psychedelic -prog) and though I found his voice rather abrasive at first The Mars Volta have a very unique and certainly psychedelic sound (it's like latin influenced psychedelic rock/punk):

First off, the Doors and King Crimson are miles apart musically.

Second - bro, did you even read my thread just down the page?

I dunno about miles ...The Doors are more pop, and less trippy than KC, but they are stoner hippie music in my book. And no, I didn't see your thread Big Grin
