Most influential rockstars!

My favorite rockerstars of the last fifty years:

1. Most attractive and influential rocker: Elvis Presley. Great in fast, slow, gospel and country-rock tunes. The best and most successful showman of the last fifty years.

2. Best singer-songwriter: Bob Dylan. The most interesting and influential of the singer songwriters who inspired everyone to get more intelligent songs about something other than love and heartache.

3. Best band: The Beatles. No other group did so much to win the hearts and entertain. Hard to believe they only lasted five years in America from 1964 to 69!

4. Longest running rocking band: Rolling Stones. They had many good songs, but just staying together and touring still makes them special.

5. Favorite English sixties performers: The Who.
They outplayed the Rolling Stones on the Rock & Roll circus show that was hidden for decades. Their drummer Keith Moon was amazing and Roger Daltrey vs. Peter Townsend was riveting. Catch their Isle of Wight show on cable sometimes if you don't know what I am talking about.

6. Favorite female singer songwriter: Joni Mitchell. None of the Alainis Morrisettes of the world could have existed without Joni Mitchell. Her sweet voice and great spirit ever soar.

7. Favorite country singer: Patsy Cline. My personal favorite for all times when I am blue or disatisfied. I love her to death! Hank Williams Sr. gets honorable mention as favorite male singer of country songs.

8. Favorite Classic singer/arranger: Buddy Holly. Just so innovative and great with such writing style
