March Madness Field Taking Shape
After receiving input from several highly reputable music critics the Field of 64 is taking shape for this year’s tourney. The title of “Greatest Band of All-Time” is surely to be a hard fought battle. Some of the teams sitting on the bubble have caused outrage amongst our loyal readers. Below is a quick re-cap of who is out, and who is in the tourney.
On the bubble:
King Crimson, Thin Lizzy, Mountain, Blind Faith, Golden Earring All had huge hits in the 70’s
Ratt, Cinderella, Queensryche, Skid Row, Anthrax, Slayer All rocked hard in the 80’s.
Echo and the Bunnymen, The Talking Heads, The Smiths, The Cure, Wall of Voodoo Not enough play on Q107 to be considered Rock
Nickleback I love them. I think I am the only one.
Genesis, Fleetwood Mac, Traffic, Three Dog Night Not rocking quite hard enough.
Poison Too many reality shows
Bob Marley and the Wailers They were in, but then I pictured Karl Hale lounging by his fireplace in his blue blazer & Dockers, sipping a hearty Chardonnay and listening to “One Love” and it made me delete the King of Reggae.
