As far as classic artists...let's see...well, looking at the other classic rock artists you mentioned, Tom Petty'd be an excellent choice if you're not all that familiar with him:

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers:
-Damn The Torpedoes, which has songs like "Refugee", "Don't Do Me Like That", and "Here Comes My Girl"
-Self-titled debut is good stuff, too-"Breakdown", "American Girl", "Hometown Blues", "Luna".

Tom Solo Works:
-Wildflowers. Highly recommend this album-the whole thing is just awesomeness.

And if you like Beatles-esque music and are interested in something a bit more mellow, I'd suggest looking into the Finn brothers' catalog. There's a lot of eras for them, though, so I'll break it down a bit more for you:

-Split Enz

Led by Tim Finn, though Neil Finn came in later and the two kinda lead together for a while. Recommended albums:

-Dizrhythmia (from their 70s days)
-True Colours or Time & Tide (from their 80s days)

If you like Bowie and new wave type music, you'll love these guys, I'd bet.

Crowded House:

Led by Neil Finn, founded after Split Enz broke up. Much more Beatles-ish in nature. Recommended albums:

-Together Alone
-Temple Of Low Men has some good stuff, too.

Miscellaneous:

-Finn Brothers' Finn (1995)
-Neil Finn's Try Whistling This (1998)
-Tim Finn's Imaginary Kingdom (2006/2007, depending on where one lives)

The first two in that list are also rather experimental in nature, so if you're wanting to go that route musically, those definitely would be worth looking into.

Think I'll stop there for now . If you do check out any of this stuff, I hope you like it.

Angela

I can't believe nobody has mentioned these guys yet!!!



If you know U2 and don't know any REM, it's a crime in my mind. They're rock legend brothers!

Automatic For The People
Out Of Time
Life's Rich Pageant
Document
Monster
New Adventures

Guys, he did say popular artist! and asked for the most accessible albums! That's why I don't understand recommendations like Stone Roses. They had what.. 2 albums?

Well... that one is absolutely essential. He simply cannot go wrong there! In fact, I think he could go with REM or Zep.
