    good stuff as always chumpy
    this is always a tough (and as you mentioned) extremely subjective topic
    If I say clapton, does that include cream? what about the yardbirds? same for lou reed/velvet underground, frampton/humble pie, etc.
    so many variables
    even tougher that you're asking us to omit personal faves
    alright, here's my best effort [based on your criteria]...

    Greatest rock and roll act of all-time:
    elvis, hands down
    so revolutionary that cbs would only show him from the waist up because his hip motions "provoked impure thoughts"

    Who are your Top Five artists and why?
    my top favorites would be a little different
    but since you said to take that out of the equation...
    - beatles/stones/kiss/led zep/queen, based solely on popularity, career success and what they meant to their generation
    honorable mention: the who/the doors/metallica/cheap trick/pink floyd/beach boys/nirvana

    What would it take for a band these days to crack your list if not supplant the Beatles (or your own personal favorite) as number one?
    imo, this is not possible
    too much has changed
    the kennedy assassination/cover-up could not happen today, nor could the beatles
    people are much more tuned in


    and now for a couple of my own categories
    and these [of course] are entirely subjective...


    best irish band
    thin lizzy

    worst irish band
    u2

    most under-rated band/artist ever
    tie: love/ultimate spinach/danzig

    5 most over-rated bands/artists ever
    nickelback/u2/limp bizkit/phish/spin doctors
    i would list bieber, vanilla ice and milli vanilli but i consider them artists

    No worries mate...I was in agreement with you

    If I was inclined to poke a stick in your eye I'd wait for something better than that...

    Listened to Eric Clapton's words about Allmans playing of Hey Jude and then listened closely to the guitar track throughout the song...

    ... and came away vastly underwhelmed.

    I've heard Duane Allman play other songs that were great but this wasn't much of a display of guitar virtuosity... IMO.

    such a great thread
    but it was pretty much you, me and limey during it's heyday
    took at hit when limey passed
    although @CapnTreee jumped in to pick up the slack
    just a shame most of the dodger posters won't venture out of the dodgers forum
    although i have a feeling guys like @Bluezoo, @fsudog21, @TAFNAC (craig) and maybe @BlueMouse might be willing to contribute
    we'll see...

    There's a few other threads around here that I'd like to see get the firing squad (or thrown out of a helicopter like a good communist) before this one.
