Re: "Favorite" Artist Tournament: Round of 32/Group #1

Some heavyweight bouts here!

#1 The Beatles, I'll have a hard time voting for anyone over the Fab Four
#2 David Bowie, respect Cash but country's not my thing
#3 Tom Petty, love him, not much of a Who fan
#4 Weezer, Blue album is one of my favorite of the 90s.
#5 Bob Marley, tough to vote against Marvin Gaye but Marley truly is a top tier artist.
#6 Dylan by a mile.
#7 Stevie, not a big Bruce fan
#8 Abstain, let the real metal/hard rock dudes fight it out!

Some tougher than others. If I had to rank these bands alone Metallica and Halen would be higher than most on this list though. Just my opinion

Re: "Favorite" Artist Tournament: Round of 32/Group #1

The Beatles - easily
Johnny Cash - very hard choice, basically a tie, but I've been listening to Johnny Cash more lately, and nominated him I think, so I picked him
The Who - very easy choice
Fleetwood Mac - another easy choice
Marvin Gaye - if it was Peter Tosh or Toots and the Maytals, I'd have picked them but I just can't get that into Bob Marley
Bob Dylan - I like both, I like Dylan more
Stevie Wonder - for his early 70's stuff which is great (Talking Book, Innervisions, Fullfillingness...), but I'm also not a big fan of Bruce so that makes it easier
Van Halen - I love Van Halen, Metallica I've tried listening to but it doesn't do anything for me
