Number 1 is understandable, but once again, RS makes a huge error of omission with no Macca......not surprising, considering the source and some of the voters. :x But still amazing.....Elvis Costello does say some nice things about the Beatles and Paul in particular, which is nice.....

There's definitely some that deserve no place there, but it's better than what I'd normally expect from RS. Thanks for the heads up, Stefan-o, gotta get this one, unfortunately, lol.

Like I said before, RS went down YEARS ago. It's a shame, really. Started out as a cutting edge "alternative" magazine, and now it's more corporate than Trump Towers. You have to flip through like 20 pages of advertisements to get to the contents. Oh sorry, everytime I see RS magazine mentioned, I have to go on a rant, lol. But thanks for listing, Steve. I actually agree with most of the list really.
