I wouldn't say that Jim Morrison was all that versatile. Somehow
Townshend/Daltrey should be allowed on that list. Collectively they're
amazing. Peter Gabriel should somehow be on here somewhere too, being
just about more talented than anyone on all the lists. I'd actually
find a place for Robert Palmer on this list too....of all people.

Nice shout-out to Banks/Collins of Genesis. I'd find a place on the
drummer list for Stewart Copeland.

If there were a Best Producer list, Jeff Lynne and Todd Rundgren would
be on it.

Nice list overall.

He had a great voice and had good emotion in his voice though.

Townshend shouldnt be in the top 10. may be top 50. Just too many great
guitarists out there.

You're all nuts. The greatest singer in the history of Rock &amp; Roll is
Roy Orbison.

And anyone who doesn't think that Hendrix is the greatest guitar
player is also nuts.

James Jamerson perched proudly on top is doomed to global ridicule

So, barring Jimi, of course, what you mean is that the lists are
strictly white. And limiting Jamerson to the confines of funk is
idiocy. For a start, he was the single biggest influence on McCartney,
easily the greatest white bassist of all time. Though let me guess,
he's not rock either?

&gt;&gt;I wouldn't say that Jim Morrison was all that versatile. Somehow
&gt;&gt;Townshend/Daltrey should be allowed on that list. Collectively they're
&gt;&gt;amazing. Peter Gabriel should somehow be on here somewhere too, being
&gt;&gt;just about more talented than anyone on all the lists. I'd actually
&gt;&gt;find a place for Robert Palmer on this list too....of all people.

&gt; You're all nuts. The greatest singer in the history of Rock &amp; Roll is
&gt; Roy Orbison.
&gt;
&gt; And anyone who doesn't think that Hendrix is the greatest guitar
&gt; player is also nuts.

Rock guitar player perhaps. There are jazz, classical, flamenco etc.
guitar players who were far better musicians than Hendrix too.

Same for Drummers - none of those guys is in the class of Buddy Rich,
Louie Bellson, Max Roach, Jon Hiseman, Steve Houghton, Mel Lewis, etc etc.

btw, most people at 48 have worked out who their favourite woman is,
and in some cases even married her, and in some cases they're still
with her. Most people have probably worked out what their favourite
beer/spirit etc is, and there's no need to chop and change. Alas, some
of us have even worked out who our favourite football team, even if
they're perennial losers. Why shouldn't music be the same? After a
while it's just a case of being happy with who you are and what/who
you like. Sure, most of us like listening to the latest music also,
but it's a case of primacy/recency. We might like something that came
out last week, but in most cases our favourites are what we were
watching/listening to in our prime. How old am I? 40. Alas I have a
lot of older siblings, so my favourites are usually their favourites,
because I didn't have a choice. I'm not compleining, but I still
haven't heard better than Jimmy page and I've been waiting a hell of a

&gt;

I am not even 30 yet. But you do realize I can download music for any
era. And figure out for myself which music was good.

60s - the begining. 1966-69 had great music. The early part was little
too poppy. Yarbirds were awersome. Velvet Underground were innovative.
So were Pink Floyd. Beatles/Stones/Who were overrated but still pretty
good.

70s: the best era, The period from 1967-77 was the best for rock music
in general.

80s: mostly commercial junk, but there was some good alterntative and
thrash metal stuff.

90s: too gloomy but some interesting alternative stuff

00s - mostly dull until now. nothing new.

Any list that doesn't have Neil Young in it ain't worth a light. There
is no individual, or band, in rock music that has been so innovative
for so long. You name it, he did it, and often before anybody else
even thought of doing it!

Mind you, a man who could write Ohio and almost forty years later
&quot;Impeach the President&quot; won't fit into any list and deserves not to :-)

I'm being facetious. Where are the women? Black musicians? Classical,
folk, jazz, country, blues, hip-hop, and spiritual musicians are all
missing from your lists. Sticking to rock, you've still missed most
musicians from the '90s and the new millenium.
