Canuck Surfer Posted December 1, 2021 Share Posted December 1, 2021 While the Canucks currently sulk? A rock tragic, I needed something top do. So here is the gig; pick a 25 or 27 man hockey style roster for each position in a rock & roll band. This format is Lead guitar, Front Man / Women, Rythym / Acoustic guitar, Piano, Bass, Drummer. I also could not limit myself to two drummers, as we would two goalies in an NHL line up? They set the beat so to speak. Feel free to play with how the rock positions get deployed! How do you rank your best all time rock line ups? Duane Allman Jim Morrison Malcolm Young Eric Clapton Paul McCartney Chuck Berry Jimmie Page Freddie Mercury John Lennon Jimmie Hendrix Janis Joplin Chet Atkins Billy Gibbons David Bowie Ray Charles Phil Lynott Elton John John Entwistle Jerry Lee Lewis Tina Weymouth Ray Manzarek Willie Dixon Neil Peart Mick Fleetwood Tommy Ramone Billy Cobham Keith Moon Honorable mentions; John Bonham, Mick Jagger (so many top lead singers & guitars!), Stevie Nicks, Prince, Tom Petty, Flea on bass from the Chile Peppers. I found bass hard to pick. I am least expert here? So many honorable mentions are possible. Eddie Van Halen I felt so guilty leaving off my guitar list. Springsteen & Angus Young will make lists. Is Stevie Wonder or Aretha Franklin a ''rock'' artist? They would be on my list. Could have had another list for things like Ian Anderson's from Jethro Tull for rock flute. These are just my rankings. Tell me your thoughts, post yours? 1 1 Quote Link to comment
