The list of musicians makes no sense[edit]

The list of musicians in the San Francisco Sound makes no sense.

The Grateful Dead are listed as a "main" group, while other bands like Creedence Clearwater Revival are listed under "other." CCR came from El Cerrito, but played the Fillmore just like other bands in the "San Francisco Sound."

The first shows by the Grateful Dead, in fact, were in Menlo Park and San Jose--not San Francisco. (talk) 02:10, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Moreover, the Grateful Dead and CCR became prominent around the same time--The Dead in 1967 and CCR in 1968.

I don't see enough difference between Creedence and the Dead that would validate listing Creedence under "other." If anything, Creedence is one of the few bands from the San Francisco scene that still has a relevant sound. (talk) 01:45, 7 November 2011 (UTC) (talk) 01:49, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

I don't know if I would say the list "makes no sense'. I agree CCR is no different in the regard of playing in the "late" SF scene, but The Dead were doing it together before most others. They were playing together prior to July 1964, and finally adding Phil Lesh, they became known as The Grateful Dead in 65'. I think up until 1967, CCR were in the army and known as The Golliwogs, no? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dec212012 (talkcontribs) 11:29, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes, this page could use a bit of a clean up — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dec212012 (talkcontribs) 12:59, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
