Wow, that is a poor list. Kurt Cobain...not once, but twice?? :huh: And oh so many Bob Dylan mentions. I don't think I agree with anything on that list (I don't remember seeing anything amazing). I don't care or anything, I'm just saying :lol:.

Excuse me--I didn't see Layne Staley with Nutshell on there. Great song, great vocal. I am going to listen to it now :)

As much as I love Pink Floyd, how is Waters on there, he isn't that good a singer and certainly (in my opinion) doesn't move me with his vocals !!If you were going to pick one from DSOTM it would have to be the lady who does the Great Gig in the Sky, now that is a moving performance.

Where is Gillan..Child in Time or Coverdale..Mistreated and of course Plant on say WTLB ?? Oh well its all down to opinion !!

45. Maynard James Keenan - The Noose

78. Maynard James Keenan - Third Eye

83. Maynard James Keenan - Passive

89. Maynard James Keenan - Reflection

These choices make the list a good one in my eyes. I would have added "The Pot" though.

What poor fool came up with that crappy list ?

Yeah, I'd agree. I'm really disappointed with this this one. Normally I get a decent list of some kind from this site. It's not a magazine so you don't have the normal ass kissing that they do to get the artist to do an interview.

But it does look like Grandma Dylan and Simon were involved with this one and apparently they hate women. :huh:

Clare Torrey! Boy, you're right, that's an amazing performance. But as someone else pointed out, there are no women on this list at all! No Janis? No Grace? No Johnette Napolitano? etc., etc...

And you knew it was coming... No Freddie Mercury? :(

What performance of Robert's would the rest of you have liked to see make this list (besides STH)? I think I might cast my vote for "I Can't Quit You Baby".

56? What's the deal with that? Stairway is my favorite song but it is certainly not Robert's best. The Rain Song would have been better, there may be better then that it's just the first thing to come to mind. Wait, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You is up there too.
