Voted.



There were some good choices, but I gotta stay true.



Elvis Presley.

I'd probably agree on Hendrix.



Although I'd give anything to see Lennon play "Imagine".

Ray Charles and James Brown weren't listed.



But in any case, I voted for Johnny Cash, the Man in Black. You is missed, bro.



If a gentle soul like John Lennon came back and saw that life has gotten even worse since he checked out, he'd just drop dead again.



And Elvis? All puffy and fat and strung out from drugs? MAYbe. If he checked himself into rehab, maybe.



Freddie Mercury was tempting, too.



Weeeeee arrrrre the champiooonnnnnnnnnnnns!



OTOH, I'm surprised and amazed that Jerry Lee Lewis is still hangin' around. Every time I see a pic of him, he looks ready to bang on those Pearly Gates.

Johnny Cash was the man, Janis Joplin sang the blues, Jim Morrison was God but I'm going with good ole Joey Ramone.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

It looks like I'm the only one, but I'd probably say the Carpenters. I don't have any idea how good they were live, but their music was great.

It's strange how they ask about rock stars, yet many of the choices weren't close to being rock.

Definitely Bob Marley. Or Jon Lennon. Or Jeff Buckley. Much too hard to pick just one!
