    • Fuckin' Axl Rose all day long, all fuckin' day long, no contest.
    • I love a Top 5.  I'm doing it slightly differently, too. My personal top five is for Frontman.  In their prime. My criteria: distinctive voice (not best voice but unique among all artists i.e. instantly recognisable on the radio), stage presence, showmanship, mystique/fascination factor.  1. Robert Plant  2. Axl Rose - only ahead of Freddie because I think he had more sex appeal (for me personally) and because of the immediate impact he had culturally e.g fashion/style/attitude 3. Freddie Mercury 4. Mick Jagger 5. Daniel Johns (Silverchair - most may not remember them, but it is a personal list). Honourable mention: Chris Cornell.  I'd put him above Daniel Johns if I was being objective.
    • I did the regular paradise city lounge 2x - Nashville last year and STL last month.  IMO, it's all to get the ticket.  lounge is ok but not really worth the money for that just that.  You get in early but unless you're in the Pit, i don't see an advantage to getting to the show a couple hours early. ymmv. The Ultimate paradise city lounge they've got for the arena dates this fall do come with a ride to/from the show and  shirt & litho of some sort in addition to lounge but it's also a couple hundred $'s more. 
    • Thats really cool.  Good investigating!   Someone in other thread mentioned that the dragon could be reference to this performannce art that happened recently in Ottawa. A huge mechanical dragon fought a huge mechanical spider. The performance was the creation of a new myth that the cities extensive work on an LRT line had stirred a sleeping dragon.  Basically representing the anxieties of progress. This Mishibizhiw mythology might confirm the dragon is a about the new myth?  That they are both based on local mythologies? Ottawa is on a tract of unceded territory of the Algonquins, who are Anashnaabek.  There is no Treaty, the land was never surrendered.  Talks are underway for a modern day treaty.     (ps: thanks to those who posted lithos here and in other threads. I was/am outta likes)   
    • Good list.  This is my personal list: T-1. Chris Cornell (Best voice in modern rock history. I hope others on here had a chance to see his solo performance, there was nothing else like it) T-1. Robert Plant (Best voice in classic rock history.  A legendary sound that influenced so much of what came next) 3. Axl Rose (Nothing more needs to be said here) 4. Maynard James Keenan (Incredibly powerful voice along with the ability to be haunting when toned down. With more stage presence/frontman appeal Maynard would be higher on many lists imo) 5. Layne Staley (I'm sure this will not be a popular choice but nobody sets the mood/tone of a song with their voice like Layne, it is like another instrument.  River of Deceit, WOW!)   Honorable Mention: Paul Rogers, Scott Weiland, Jim Morrison, Ozzy Osborne, Roger Daltrey, Steven Tyler, David Gilmour, Bon Scott, Trent Reznor
