The Finals

In terms of career length and significance, I consider this the most difficult to differentiate. My vote goes not for popularity or sales but based on talent.

 

Pink Floyd

 

Eric Clapton

The Finals

Unfortunately, my computer died a couple of weeks ago, so I missed some rounds, but the good news is that I am here to vote in the final round.

After much deliberation, and a lot of input from previous posts, here are my votes:

Band - The Beatles

Solo - Bruce Springsteen

Neither of these are my personal favorites, but after reading some very well thought out arguments, I feel that my choices are correct.  I could delve into the reasons as to why I came to that conclusions, but the answers have already been eloquently answeres by previous posters.

P.S.  In my perfect little world, Bob Dylan reigns supreme in the solo category, but I've spent enough time on my soap box on that subject, so I'll not bore any of you any further with my rantings...

P.P.S.  Great blog, thanks!!, Can't wait to see the results...
