As our scribe said: “1977 was the year in which the nice, neat rock hierarchies which bossed the interim period between the end of the 60’s and the real beginning of the 70s (76) broke down.”
Thus, The Sex Pistols topped most categories, knocking off the likes of Led Zeppelin, Yes and Genesis. Bowie was a notable era straddler.
