Results: As we continue our search for the greatest band of all time, a moral is emerging: don’t erode your own legacy. The Fillmore region’s #11 seed follows underperforming Aerosmith and Van Halen out the door, as the once-great Sir Elton John is upset by Joan Jett. The numbers: Joan Jett/Blackhearts 51%; Elton John 36%; Lush 4%; Concrete Blonde 4%; White Zombie/Rob Zombie 3%; Duran Duran 1%. Jett advances to the Great 48.
For our next match we move to the Budokan region, where one of the most popular and influential figures in music defends against another tough, diverse set of challengers.
- #7. Bob Marley/Wailers: Listen
- Joe Walsh: Listen
- Joe Jackson: Listen
- Thin Lizzy: Listen
- Luke Haines/The Auteurs/Baader Meinhof/Black Box Recorder: Listen
Note: Since The Eagles are entered in the ToR, Joe Walsh’s presence here represents his solo career and his work with The James Gang.
Please gives these artists a listen and then vote on who you think deserves to advance in the Budokan bracket.
