Well the first round of the brackets are done and there were a few very close races but no "major" upsets. So without further delay here are the results followed by the match ups for round 2. The numbers in parenthesis in the first listing is the vote totals. In the second section the number is the original seeding based on the votes received in the nomination process. And yes I did have to cast a vote this round since we did have a tie. I am going to tell you that since one other match up was separated by 2 votes I cast a vote to make it a one vote margin also. This way only I will know which match up I actually decided. I am a sneaky one.

The Beatles (43) vs. The Doors (10)
The Rolling Stones (41) vs. The Grateful Dead (12)
The Who (33) vs. Lynyrd Skynyrd (20)
The Eagles (33) vs. Creedence Clearwater Revival (20)
Led Zeppelin (40) vs. Aerosmith (12)
Pink Floyd (42) vs. Rush (11)
AC/DC (26) vs. The Allman Brothers Band (27)
U 2 (20) vs. Cream (33)


Eric Clapton (42) vs. Ozzy Osbourne (11)
Bruce Springsteen (33) vs. Chuck Berry (20)
Jimi Hendrix (37) vs. John Lennon (16)
Elvis Presley (33) vs. Johnny Cash (20)
Bob Dylan (31) vs. Tom Petty (22)
Neil Young (37) vs. Roy Orbison (16)
Billy Joel (28) vs. Carlos Santana (25)
Elton John (26) vs. Stevie Ray Vaughn (27)

Band Bracket:
The Beatles (1) vs. Cream (9)
The Rolling Stones(2) vs. The Allman Brothers Band (10)
The Who (3) vs. Pink Floyd (6)
The Eagles (4) vs. Led Zeppelin (5)

Solo Acts Bracket:
Eric Clapton (1) vs. Stevie Ray Vaughn (9)
Bruce Springsteen (2) vs. Billy Joel (7)
Jimi Hendrix (3) vs. Neil Young (6)
Elvis Presley (4) vs. Bob Dylan (5)

The voting in this round will be open until Sunday May 11 at noon est. Tell all of your friends to vote. No need to have voted before to voice your opinion. Once again I will not vote unless there is the need for a tie breaking vote to be cast. Of course as I did this time I will post a vote in each match up so no one will know if I even voted and what my choices were unless they want to go back and count all the votes.

Thanks again to all who have participated.

I have not seen The Who live except on video but if they are better than Pink Floyd live , I really missed one hell of a show. I just wonder how many that voted on here have seen both?
