Well, at least Paul Rodgers was Freddie's #1 favorite singer.  Oh wait...that was Aretha, as well.

I saw this list online last night & was so disgusted I didn't feel like starting a thread or searching for an existing one. It is a joke. Forget where they placed Freddie, where the hell is Sinatra, Neil Diamnd, Burton Cummings, Pat Benatar, Jim Croche (sp)!! How about any of the members of CSN? Shit, Billy Squier should be on that list before of some of the acts that made it. Pathetic!

Worst rock magazine ever: Rolling Stone.

If ONLY Queen would have had BOB DYLAN to sing at Live-Aid, then it would have been spectacular!

What a joke of a list. That magazine really is crap. I mean Paul Mccartney #11, he's a crap singer. I won't even mention Freddie's position.


Go, Go, Go, little queenie!!

Somebody paid Rolling Stone Magazine - the cheque from QPL is in the Post.

1. Freddie
2. George Michael
3. Bono

 Paul McCartney - Mick Jagger very weak!
 Paul Rodgers if you like sandpaper vocals fine, but not my cup of tea.
