Results: Those guys over there waving the white flag? Yeah, those are the Tournament of Rock handicappers. They’ve given up trying to guess how our voters are going to behave in the wake of our second straight major upset. They expected #6 seed Joni Mitchell to have a tough time, but they thought it would come from Alice Cooper or Todd Rundgren. Instead, Joni is dismissed by The Doobie Brothers. The numbers: The Doobie Brothers 33%; #6 Joni Mitchell 30%; Alice Cooper 13%; Todd Rundgren 10%; Motorhead 8%; Rod Stewart 8%.
Our ever-more disorienting quest to name the greatest band in history now moves to the Red Rocks region and one of popular music’s more cerebral tandems, Steely Dan – a quintessential studio band that’s been enjoying significant critical acclaim for some of its recent performances. Given their competition and the results of the last two pods, Messrs. Becker and Fagan perhaps have much to fear….
- #9 Steely Dan: Listen
- The Cult: Listen
- Sweet: Listen
- Boston: Listen
- Los Lobos: Listen
- The Jesus & Mary Chain: Listen
