My Favourite West Coast Acid Rock Bands

I always extend this a little to include bands that weren’t West Coast or weren’t strictly Acid Rock (such as Byrds and Zappa) but they were part of the scene.

I used to love these bands and fortunately managed to see them all live

These are my favourites:

Country Joe and the Fish

Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band

Love

Jefferson Airplane

Doors

The Mothers of Invention

Buffalo Springfield

Grateful Dead

Byrds

Blue Cheer

Quicksilver Messenger Service

Big Brother and the Holding Company

Steppenwolf

It’s a Beautiful Day
