LOL...Sarah, are you referring to me? I'll be back with an answer after I change the hand grips on my walker.
My appologies for taking so long to answer this question properly. But seeing as I don't know very much about music, as somebody has pointed out, these things take time. Thank goodness I still think I'm funny!
I feel that the following bands/artists were quite popular in their day, but really had little or in some cases no influence/impact over other bands that followed, or to rock music in general. And if they did...it bordered on insignificance. Unfortunately this might just look like another list of obscure bands that nobody's ever heard of, but trust me...they were popular. For instance...Billy J Kramer was under management by Beatles manager Brian Epstein, and was plastered all over the radio during the 60's. But today if remembered at all, it's only as that English guy who sang Beatles covers.
Then we have The Creation...they were part of the British 'Mod' scene, verging on psychedelic rock. Their guitarist was the first person to ever bow an electric guitar, long before Jimmy Page. In fact, Jimmy would be the first to admit that it was Eddie Phillips that gave him the idea. But to most rock fans, this fact is unknown and has just faded away into rock history. Outside of that little hidden secret, The Creation really weren't anything special:
Three Man Army
The Ivy League
Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas
Zoot Money and the Big Roll Band
The Fraternity of Man
Crown Heights Affair
The Seeker's and The New Seeker's
The Real Thing
Jo Jo Gunne
Bay City Rollers
The Classic IV
Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich
Jonathan Richman And The Modern Lovers
Ian Lloyd & the Stories
The Creation (even though their guitarist was the first to bow an electric guitar, most are unaware...sadly forgotten.)
This is just a small list of classic bands/artists, that are for the most part...are highly irrelevant today.
