You forgot William Hung.

Aside from that, it's a heck of a list.

Well, let's see.........Duane Allman died less than three years after forming The Allman Brothers Band.........yet he makes the list, but his brother Gregg, who is still playing in the band 34 years later, and even back in the day wrote more ABB tunes than Duane, is left off? Interesting, I would say. Keith Richards but no Mick Jagger? Eh? And I'll chime in w/ Musicalbeds..........Kurt Cobain? I ain't buying it, especially with Garcia and Page left off. And if you're gonna get into jazz, and you certainly did, I would opt for these three who were omitted: Chick Corea, Josef Zawinul and Wayne Shorter. Other than that, pretty good list..........nobody's perfect, and I doubt I could have done better (hindsight always 20/20!). Also, there is not one woman on the list. Although Janis Joplin's career was very short, it was no shorter than Hendrix. She opened the door for every female rock artist who followed her.........I think she's gotta be on here. Here's one more with a very short but very influential career: Sam Cooke.

Buddy Holly is a great one. The impact he had on rock n roll will always be felt. THe man was a innovator and he was taken away far, far too young.

I would have to add Sergei Prokofiev to the list. Together with the suggested additions, that is a very ambitious and impressive list. You have done your homework.

Excellent lists. I would also include Pete Townshend and while I can't single out one member I would have to include Pink Floyd. While they may be lacking musically, KISS inspired many with their theatrics.

I'd throw in Fletcher Henderson, generally credited with creating the Swing orchestra.

Isn't it amazing how diverse musically the ABB fan base is? I would think such a wide variety of musical interests and tastes is somewhat unique to this band.
