Perhaps it says something about perceived influence at the present time, or maybe it just means that people like listening to Pink Floyd more than they do The Who (although the producers of the CSI franchise would surely take issue). In any case, the results of our second semifinal are in, and I don’t think anyone is terribly surprised. Results: #2 Pink Floyd 65%; #3 The Who 35%.
On Monday morning the Grand Final will commence.
Whatever we may all have thought about the results of various pods along the way, however shocked or incensed we may have been at some of the upsets, however annoyed we might have gotten over the incursions of fan club voters, in the end this much is safe to say: there’s a very small handful of artists who belong in the conversation for the greatest band of all time, and I imagine our two finalists would appear on most people’s short lists.
It’s The Rolling Stones vs. Pink Floyd. We’ll see you Monday.
