Dead Rock Stars

Michelle, over at occasional melancholia, has an interesting list on her blog that I noticed. It's a list of the "top 50 dead rock stars". Some interesting choices and while not exactly what I'd have chosen, most of them make sense.

The best thing about the list is that it's not just names. Each entry has some historical perspective discussed as well as how the artist was significant and all that stuff. The number 2 pick is the one that I had the most difficulty with--but probably a lot of kids were voting!

By the way, Jim Morrison up there logged in at #11. Break on Through to the Other Side, indeed!


You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side, yeah

I read those lyrics and all I can hear is the sweet sound of the music to go with it...
Thanks

It's probably just me being inept, but when I tried to check out the list I got the last 10 (41 to 50) on a page and can't figure out how to get to the rest of the list. :-(

I had the most trouble with #2 on the list too. I guess that's why I don't read Blender anymore :)

That's one song I don't mind bouncing off of my brain matter today. That is until I can't get the loop to stop playing. :D

I had to go over and check out 2...Yikes!!! What were they thinking? Though to be honest, I'm no Morrison fan either. Sorry!
