    I voted for Elton John from the listed choices, although Ozzy Osbourne would be my pick in general. Randy, Jake, Zakk, etc. and all those great guitar driven songs? Yup.

    From that list, Hendrix is the only one I listen to by choice.

    Get it? Haha.

    I really like the majority of his solo output, and while not the greatest singer, thought he had/has an instantly recognizable voice and persona. Kind of like another frontman you might know...

    Elton John? Immensely talented musician and performer. Love his music and legacy as well!

    I should have included Ozzy instead of Elvis. Maybe Daisy, billy or Mike can make the change for me.

    Where's Bowie? And whoever picks Billy Joel or especially Phil Collins should be publicly humiliated.

    NO just take away your poll privilege for a month.


    Are you gay by chance, this could be a way harsher punishment than intended

    Of those listed, Elvis.

    My favorite would be Sinatra or Johnny Cash, depending upon the day.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Not mentioning Bowie is unforgivable.

    too late - ELVIS already has a vote!

    I don't really think of Tom Petty as a solo artist - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and their membership was fairly consistent. Only 3 Tom Petty solo albums (and even those tended to feature some of the Heartbreakers!)

    Feel free to change Tom Petty to Ozzy and Bob Dylan to David Bowie.
