The next best thing until cloning is perfected!

I think maybe The Dave Clark Five and Billy J. Kramer And The Dakotas sound like them as well. Good list.

Thanx! I love the Dave Clark Five, but I haven't heard The Dakotas. They're not named after John's apartment building where he was shot are they? Because that would be gross!

No, they were an invasion band back in 1964.

Get back and pick up Cotton Mather's Kontiki. My Before and After chimes like the Beatles circa Revolver if Lennon had ousted McCartney from the gigs and chosen the title of dictator. Should be right up a Lennon fan's Penny Lane.

Zep! Zep! Zep!

I'm glad Oasis is not not on this list! Despite their best efforts.
