fairport convention were sometimes referred to as the British Jefferson airplane.
Rory Gallagher - Johnny Winter
Although Welsh, man was commonly compared to quicksilver messenger service. John cipollina even played with them.
I was just thinking of that one.
The Shadows - The Ventures
Cream - Mountain
Wishbone Ash - Lynyrd Skynyrd ))
One could note
Procol Harum - the Band (ok, 80% Canadian)
Both had piano/organ as major sound component
The Fall - Guided by Voices
Dave Edmunds / Eddie Cochran
Here's how it works:
People from the United States and Canada are North American.
People from Brazil and others are South American.
People from Mexico and others are Central American
People from Canada are Canadian
People from Brazil are Brazilians
People from Mexico are Mexicans
Here's where it gets tricky.
People from the United States (of America) are not United Statsian or United States of American (no such things).
So they default to American without the North/South/Central which broader categories as defined above.
Hope this helps.
LCD Soundsystem = Ultravox
Pat Boone would be a better american analog for Cliff Richard.
America has Cat Power and the Brits have Beth Orton
Didn't know that.
Assumed they were English.
I’d argue Fairport Convention = Jefferson Airplane. Both replaced female lead vocalist with an icon after 1st album. Also, early Fairport was very American focused in their material (ironically, given what came later).
Cliff is better than Pat. Say Rick Nelson.
As far as I know, people from Mexico are North American too, but they are also Latin American like the rest of the continent.
Kate Bush - Tori Amos
Slade - KISS
Hawkwind - Grateful Dead
T. Rex - Alice Cooper
The Rezillos - The B-52's
The Wombles - The Banana Splits.
Blondie - Siouxsie and the Banshees actually more X-Ray Spex
Iggy Pop - Ian Dury
Only in the eighties with Goalby really.
Prior to that everyone accused them of being Deep Purple
Yes - Starcastle
Yes, and Cliff's "Devil Woman" is a parallel universe equivalent of Pat's "In A Metal Mood" in that it started off as a pop song and got covered as a metal song.
