I just watched 3 episodes of VH1's The List. What a pile of dung that show is. It's too bad because the premise for the show is good. They just do a gawdawful job of executing the gameplan. I mean, who are half these people that they get on the panel? I saw one that Little Richard was on, but mostly it's just a bunch of non musical celebs. However the show does pose some interesting questions. Since there's not much activity on the Stones front, and I'm all out of trivia questions, I thought I'd pose some of the List's questions and see what real Rock n Roll fans think. Biggest male ROCK star.
1. Mick Jagger-If you look up the definition of rock star in Webster's it says "Mick Jagger". Everything about Mick screams "Hey now, I'm a fucking STAR!"
2. Elvis Presley-How can you argue with the King
3. David Bowie-Dave was a rock star before anyone even heard of him. His longevity, ability to adapt to the ch-ch-changes in the rock world, and influence on other acts make him what he is...a big ol' rock star.
So what do you all think? Post your list. 3rd place gets 1 point, 2nd place 2 points, 1st place 4 points. The rocker who gets the most points wins, the next highest total gets 2nd place, etc.
