Great!  So in two weeks, Freddie will be elected Greatest Vocalist of Finland completing the Scandanavian Tri-fecta.

Interesting that John Lennon (who usually is high is these lists, I think) doesn't appear.  Though I think that Paul McCartney is probably better...

Sure.

Somehow, I think you and your band are probably quite fond of #10, Blackie Lawless. 
That's who you sound like.

Right. We have this on record: TM thinks he's better than both The Beatles and The Stones. Now can we please put him in the nuthouse?

oh yes, no doubt about it, both those bands are overrated crap, the beatles are amateurs and the stuff the rolling stones play is nonsense.

They're not my favorite bands either, but they still beat you by a long run. Having said that, you're not even in the same *galaxy* as, say, Eric Dolphy or Sergei Rachmaninov.
