Interesting list from a classic rock perspective - you have everything covered. Good to see plenty of Yes and Solo-Yes on that list.

It's an interesting list - of course, you lose points for me that besides Jimi Hendrix - you don't have any African-Americans on the list (most people fall into that trap) - So, to be complete, you would have to add Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michael Jackson, Motown, other giants of the genre (Thelonious Monk) etc.....I still don't see how people can think they have a complete list when they ignore black music - But, these lists are so subjective - you can't please everyone.

It's good to see someone as plugged in with Yes as you are, though. Yes is a love/hate thing though with most fans. I think those guys were phenomenal - other folks don't give them that much love
