    Elton John -- Still

    I suppose he in not officially a part of the initial invasion, but I think he still counts. Some friends saw him in concert the other day and say that he still has the voice and the presence that he had years ago.  Guess he's Still Standing (not his best song).

    The Moody Blues -- Kind Of A One-off, But Wonderful Group

    These guys were of the same period, but I don't classify them with the original invasion.  Do you? If I remember correctly, they were probably the original proponents of the theme album.  Days of Future Past is one of my top five albums of all time.  I wish I...
