Results: Our closest match yet ended regulation in a tie between Eels and Santana. The numbers: #8 Eels/E 39%; Santana/Carlos Santana 39%; Richard Thompson 9%; The Animals 7%; Peter Frampton 5%; Squeeze 2%. We then staged a sudden death overtime period, which Santana won by a 76%-24% margin. Santana advances to the Great 48.
Our search for the greatest band of all time now shifts to the Red Rocks region and our final preliminary pod. In it, a wicked tough pool of challengers confront a man who attained 5-star success as a solo artist and as part of two separate bands.
- #5 Neil Young: Listen
- Deep Purple: Listen
- Iron Maiden: Listen
- The Red Hot Chili Peppers: Listen
- The B-52s: Listen
- The Doors: Listen
- The Levellers: Listen
Note: Both Buffalo Springfield and CSN were entered separately, so Neil Young is here being evaluated as a solo artist.
