Key acts included British Invasion bands just like the Kinks, as well as psychedelic era performers like Cream, Jimi Hendrix and the Jeff Beck Group. Hard rock-influenced bands that loved worldwide success in the later Seventies included Queen, Thin Lizzy, Aerosmith, AC/DC, and Van Halen. British acts to emerge in the same interval from the blues scene, to make use of the tonal and improvisational aspects of jazz, included Nucleus and the Graham Bond and John Mayall spin-off Colosseum.
