In the past, there had been noted three member bands, with different sounds and styles. Which three piece-band do you believe is better overall, and which one got the most out of their three member arrangement music and sound wise, out of The Police, Rush, or Nirvana?

Hendrix, Robin Trower, Frank Marino, Ted Nugent, Triumph..in that order. Out of your 3, I would give the nod to Rush for best use of sound.

I would say Rush too. Personally, The Police wouldn’t even cross my mind, and I think Nirvana is way too overrated.

Ability, Rush. Creativity/talent, Nirvana.

The police are not even in the conversation for me.

Emerson Lake and Palmer were certainly better, in my mind, than Rush or Nirvana.

While I liked The Police, as a trio, Stewart Copeland diminished the overall quality.

My personal favourite are The Police.
But they’d actually come in last (out of your list).

Rush wins, easily.

HS Forgot about little Stevie Ray Vaughn

@Cruiser Sorry about that, I always thought of him as a solo artist predominately, I always seen him with other guitarist like Jeff Beck, Steve Vai, etc. Never knew he had an actual band.

@Hypocrisy_Central If you do see him strictly as a solo artist then, he did form the band Double Trouble but they later added a keyboardist which made it a quad!

The Police.

While Emerson, Lake and Palmer were good, I think CROSBY, STILLS & NASH was better. Emerson, Lake and Palmer I would have to put in front of The Police, but that is solely on musical creativity and I think they were more versatile musicians. I can’t put them in front of Rush, in my mind, because of the complex musicality Rush brought with just three pieces, and the notes and cords Rush does especially Getty Lee’s part, I have not seen many other bands duplicate; their basses are very vanilla next to Getty Lee’s.
