    Levon helm played mando on some Band songs (although it's used as a rhythm instrument rather than taking solos) - an example would be Rockin Chair.

    Bruce Springtien:

    My favorite rock mando is Billy Holmes' playing on the Killing Floor album by Vigilantes of Love. It's on most of the cuts; "Anybody's Guess" is a particular standout.

    Mark Heard played a National Silvo mandolin on every cut of his Satellite Sky disc. Managed to make it sound like a guitar most of the time.

    Check out John Kruth sometime ... heavy mando on most of his CDs, particularly The Cherry Electric.
    Emando.com: More than you wanted to know about electric mandolins.

    I have seen Counting Crows several times on TV in the last year or two. Every time they were using mando. I haven't got around to picking up a CD yet.

    Jars of Clay has several ballads with mando - no one loves me like you, love song for a savior, on jordan's stormy banks, lonely people.

    I also like Carbon Leaf - at least half of their stuff has mando.

    It's late and that's all I can remember at the moment.

    Mandorock rules!

    I think we have discussed this before. What I like this time is the alphabetical order, that Guylaine suggested. If we want to expand the list and keep it actual, I suggest that everyone adds his band/song in the same list at the correct place, or Guylaine to do that periodically. For example: I want to add Aerosmith/Crazy and Styx/Boat on the River. Here it is:

    Aerosmith Crazy
    Alan Parson project Pavane
    A perfect circle (What so funny 'bout)peace, love and understanding
    At war with self At war with self
    Blind Melon Walk
    Blue Rodeo Bad timing
    Blue Rodeo Up on that cloud
    Byrds Path of victory
    Byrds Ballad of easy rider
    Church Antenna
    Death cab for cutie Soul meet body
    Rory Gallagher I'm not surprised
    Goo Goo dolls Iris
    Hall & Oates Lady rain
    Hall & Oates Better watch your back
    John Hiatt Cry love
    Heart Half moon
    Bruce Hornsby Mandolin rain
    Jars of clay Liquid
    Jethro tull Weather cock
    John Paul Jones Freedom song
    Kinks Supersonic rocket ship
    Led Zeppelin The battle of evermore
    Led Zeppelin Boogiwe with stu
    Led Zeppelin Gallows pole
    Led Zeppelin Going to California
    Steve Miller band Dance dance dance
    Mott & the Hoople I wish I was your mother
    Muse Blackout
    Mike Oldfield Taurus 3
    O'keanes This ain't love
    REM You are everything
    REM Mandolin strum
    REM Loosing my religion
    Slash the nash I'll wait for you
    Slash the nash Guns and sandwiches
    Split Enz Maybe
    Split Enz Matinee Idyll
    Split Enz Titus
    Split Enz Sweer talking spoon
    Al Stewart Road to Moscow
    Rod Stewart Maggie May
    Rod Stewart Mandolin wind
    Styx Boat on the River
    Swingers True or false
    Tea Party Shadow on the mountain side
    Tea Party Sister awake
    Yes Wonderous stories

    This way everyone will be able to check fast if his band/song suggestion is already in the list instead of reading all the posts. At the end (?) we will have a pretty complete list.

    I was just listening to Joan Osborne's "Saint Teresa" on the radio on the way home... plenty of mandolin in that.

    And if I recall correctly, their mandolinist sat in with Mr. Rod Stewart on the two most famous mandolin rock songs of the 1970s.

    The liner notes on Rod Stewart's "Every Picture..." album credited the mandolin on those two famous songs as played by 'the mandolin player in Lindisfarne who's name escapes me'.
    Always wondered if that was an inside joke, an intentional
    slight, or due to rock star excess.

    I don`t know. Feel free to add it to the list by yourself if you are sure, or wait for someone else confirmation. I`m not familiar with the song.
