Well, what do we expect?

Public with attention span of a gnat and historical recall of less - every list of this kind tends to focus on what's happened in the last ten minutes anyway.  There's Bowie from the 70s, a couple from the 80s and the rest are still in puberty or even younger if you pick Doherty.

Right, I've had my Grumpy Old Man moment, I am going back to my cave and I am rolling a big stone in front of it.

Harrumph.

What, you want a list as well, do you?

Here goes:

Neil Young
Robbie Robertson
David Bowie
Arthur Lee
Bruce Springsteen
Steve Hackett
Steve Winwood
Rory Gallagher
Skip Spence
Jim Morrison

Pick the bones out of that.

As for me:

Curt Cobain
Jimi Hendrix
Angus Young
Keith Richards
Slash
Robert Plant
Paul Weller
Michael Hutchence
Eric Clapton
Lou Reed

I know a couple may be a triumph of style over substance(s) but I think that is a big part of what makes a rock god.

I forgot Alex harvey  Roll Eyes

I think I could swap him for bon jovi in my original list.

Anyway, if the others are Rock Gods, then Ian Gillan is definately Jesus in my eyes  Grin
