Any best SINGERS list that ranks Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan that high has about zero worth.

I don't think you listen to enough Bob Dylan, then.

I'm responding to this a bit late but I was so happy to see Freddie Mercury make number 18. He deserves to be high on that list. Some of my favorites were there actually-Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Bjork, Annie Lennox and even Karen Carpenter!

I have been interested in the RS500 lists; they don't always hit the nail on the head, but the RS ones are generally as good or better than other types of lists like these, imo.  Any list like this will be subjective - compare the RS 500 list with the Time magazine 100, for example.

Should Bono be on the list - absolutely.  His ranking doesn't surprise me.

One that did surprise me is that Streets makes #28 on the RS list of 100 greatest guitar songs of all time, but it failed to make their list of the best 500 songs if all time (6 other U2 songs made the list).  What's up with that?

I just got a look at the Rolling Stone issue in my doctor's office. Did anyone notice the interesting group that were listed as the "judges"?  Well after a quick look, I know Bono got support at least from the following listed: Paul Mc Guinness, Bruce Springsteen, B.B. King, Darlene Love & Alicia Keys! I didn't have time to really look at it good, but I saw Clem Burke-Blondie's long time drummer. I got a kick out of that one!

I read the article awhile back. I've forgotten my overall opinion of the list but thought Bono should have been rated higher. LIKE NUMBER FREAKING ONE.

Awww....come on..Steven Tyler can hit some pretty high notes. And that voice was made to be in rock n' roll.

I agree with you...I'm a Aerosmith fan,and I love Tyler's voice...He can hit high notes and everything...Rock 'n' Roll voice 8)

Did they make a list of top bassists and drummers?

Cheers,

I think I just gained some more respect for Billie Joe. That's a total of three good points for Billie Joe.

I think Freddie Mercury should have been placed higher. He had an massive range of notes he could hit well

I agree. A top-5 voice and the best showman ever make him the best front man in rock and roll history in my opinion.

To some of the ATYCLB-bashers here, it doesn't mean anything because they consider Rolling Stone as rubbish after their proclamation of ATYCLB as U2's third masterpiece.

Cheers,
