    I think it's easy to see these bands or musicians as ignored when you look back at them from the 21st century, a time extremely short on these styles of music. The only bands that seem to have any consistent mentioning from the era of bands you mentioned are the ones that have the most hits because millennials don't just like hits, they tend to depend on them. Even that's not always enough because a few of those bands on your list had numerous hits worth mentioning. These bands were not always ignored, but it sure feels that way looking back at the past 20-30 years and the music trends within those years.

    I don't believe there are any bands that fit those criteria, and 0% of the artists you listed were "ignored by the media for four decades." Also, since when is Frank Zappa a band?

    What you say isn't true though.

    Frank Zappa, eh? That's why he was interviewed by the "Today Show" back in 1993, right?

    ELP? That's why Keith Emerson's suicide received ZERO press, correct? (All sarcasm intended.)

    The Band? Why Levon Helm's death was ignored, too. (See parenthetical comment just above.)

    ZZ Top? I just saw an extensive article profiling their 50th anniversary the other day.

    I'm not going to keep on going, because I needn't.

    Just because bands you like don't receive what YOU think is ample coverage doesn't mean they aren't getting any (or, frankly, for second or third tier acts, enough) coverage.

    Yes, Genesis, The Band, and Deep Purple are in the Rock Hall of Fame IIRC. Grand Funk was a fad but not really good.

      Saw Wishbone a few years ago along with Uriah Heep, Nazareth & Blue Oyster Cult. All still very good live. Saw Leslie West in 1973, not long after the original Mountain broke up. He had a red Hagstrom Swede guitar.
