I would agree, but add more.

 

Cream

Blind Faith

Bob Dylan (okay, not really a band)

The Animals

The Byrds

Canned Heat

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Dick Dale and The Del-Tones

Donovan

Elvis Presley (got his start in the 1950's and continued making music into the late 1970's, but you know what I mean)

The Hollies

Johnny Cash (1960's material)

Paul Revere & The Raiders

Roy Orbison

Simon & Garfunkel

The Spencer Davis Group

Taste

Them

The Yardbirds

 

Bands that had later success, but started in the mid-to-late 1960's:

Black Sabbath (first album recorded in 1969)

Led Zeppelin

David Bowie

The Band

Fleetwood Mac

The Guess Who

Neil Young

Santana

Ten Years After

Van Morrison

The Who

 

There's probably more that I could add, but I'll stop there.

The Beatles obviously, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Beach Boys , The Who, The Byrds and Simon and Garfunkel are the ones I listen the most to, but there are tons of good 60s bands and artists.

Also, I realize that I forgot John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers.

Pretty Things had a really interesting alternate history stones kinda career 

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I have a soft spot for The Monkees and I will also add The Easybeats as well.

I'm not gonna count Zep or Floyd as I consider them 70s. 

5. The Who/Kinks 

4. The Velvet Underground

3. The Beach Boys

2. The Rolling Stones

1. The Beatles 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I didn't list my favourite sixties bands in my previous post so here you go:

The Beatles

The Monkees

The Who

The Rolling Stones

Cream

Jimi Hendrix Experience

The Easybeats

The Lovin' Spoonful 

The Mamas and the Papas 

The Beach Boys

The Animals

The Doors

So many bands from the sixties started with "the". I would also include Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan but they are considered solo artist and the title says bands.

The Parliaments, for becoming two ofthe best bands of the 70s 

...at the same time, for several different labels

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

And here's one that's been forgotten, The Wailers. Bob Marley. Peter Tosh. Bunny Livingston.

The leading Jamaican band of the '60s, constantly evolving through style after style - ska; rocksteady; blue beat; reggae.

The membership of the group was as remarkable as John, Paul, George and Ringo coming together.

In many ways, they need to be considered as one of the top dozen '60s group so far as the influence they would go on to have, together and apart, during the '70s and onwards.

In particular, their recordings with Lee Perry, starting in the late-'60s, are among the most important recordings ever made, and have echoed down the decades.
