Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

The Best of Rock

I would like to draw my readers attention to this page. It's filled with (of course subjective) rankings of the best Rock musicians, guitar players, groups, riffs, solos, etc. Some examples:

Best Rock Guitarists (I quite agree) *= R.I.P.:
1. Jimi Hendrix* - Jimi Hendrix Experience
2. Eric Clapton - Yardbirds, Cream, Derek & The Dominos, Solo
3. Jimmy Page - Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, The Firm
4. Jeff Beck - Yardbirds, Jeff Beck Group, Solo
5. Eddie Van Halen - Van Halen
6. Stevie Ray Vaughan* - Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble
7. Joe Satriani - Solo
8. Ritchie Blackmore - Deep Purple, Rainbow, Blackmores Night
9. Steve Vai - David Lee Roth, Whitesnake, Solo
10. David Gilmour - Pink Floyd, Solo
Best Rock Drummers (I don't agree, Keith Moon is the greatest ever):
1. Neil Peart (Rush)
2. John Bonham* (Led Zeppelin)
3. Carl Palmer (ELP)
4. Keith Moon* (The Who)
5. Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa)
6. Ginger Baker (Cream)
Best 'Live' Rock Artists (I quite agreee, The Who is on its right place; Led Zep however belongs much better ranked):
1. The Who
2. Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band
3. Queen
4. James Brown
5. Allman Brothers Band
6. Grateful Dead
7. Led Zeppelin
8. Pink Floyd
9. Jimi Hendrix
10. Rolling Stones
11. Cream
Best Rock Albums (Where are Tommy, The Doors, Santana's groundbreaking debut album and Peel slowly and see?):
1. Revolver (1966)-The Beatles
2. Pet Sounds (1966)-Beach Boys
3. Dark Side Of The Moon (1973)-Pink Floyd
4. Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)-The Beatles
5. Led Zeppelin IV (1971)-Led Zeppelin
6. Who's Next (1971)-The Who
7. Blonde On Blonde (1966)-Bob Dylan
8. Are You Experienced (1967)-Jimi Hendrix Experience
9. London Calling (1980)-The Clash
10. Rubber Soul (1965)-The Beatles
The Best Live Rock Album ever is certainly The Who's Live at Leeds and Van Halen's debut album is also right to be in the Top Ten of the Best Rock Guitar Albums.

So check out this page. If you are a real expert, maybe you can even recognize those psychedelic songs...
