I'm sure that more will occur to me. I use to think it my mission to turn my friends on to good music. Then I realized that they actually had horrible taste (see the other thread) when I could not get anyone to go and see Bob Marley with me at a half-empty show at the Paramount in Portland. The next time that he came through town he was filling the Colosseum.
Man! These three a just great bands!!! I can't imagine any of them being on someone's list of "bands that others don't like"... if your friends don't like these guys, perhaps a higher quality class of friends is in order!

I found out a long time ago that most folks do not "hear" music the way I do, nor are they taken by it like I am... there was a time when I denigrated those people, but I've come to realize that Music is quite different for everyone... and that's perfectly okay with me.

But Traffic, Little Feat and the subdudes are three of my favorite bands!

Tubes are great! Side B of their eponymous first album (circa 1975 I think) was awesome. Very much a niche (sort of insider/underground) audience at first. Musicians knew them.

I was glad to see them enjoy some more mainstream commercial success later on MTV (to counteract stuff like Thompson Twins, Flock of Seagulls, etc.). Steve Lukather played rhythm and lead guitar on the studio recording of Talk To Ya Later.
