    already knew how it would come out (#1) - even before it was first aired in 2010.

    Agree or disagree?: 1) The Beatles 2) Michael Jackson 3) Led Zeppelin 4) The Rolling Stones 5) Bob Dylan

    I think he was around #12.

    Surprised me a lot.

    I had him in the top 3.

    Then whats the list based on? Other than the Beetles no other Artist has remained as popular for as long as he has.

    The list was voted on by musical artists - their peers.

    Not by fans.

    Led Zapp is overrated

    Should be lucky to make the top 10.

    Don't recall where the Greatful Dead finished.

    If it makes you feel any better - all of the individual Beatles finished behind Elvis.

    Best post-Beatles careers: George, Paul, John, Ringo

    John could have been top-5 artist on his own - except he copped-out........................

    John was ranked below Paul? I could see maybe below George (though I think John had the best solo music), but below Paul? :confused:

    I'm not sure about the individual rankings. Don't care.

    It's almost like The Beatles were ONE PERSON in their heyday.

    Never ever seen a band have so much fun.

    You can't fake it...........................
