2. Michael "Flea" Balzary – Red Hot Chili Peppers
3. Geddy Lee - Rush
4. John Paul Jones – Led Zeppelin
Tie 5. Bootsy Collins – Parliament Funkadelic;

I know there are a lot more folks?
Have a great day.

Doc said...

Leighann... If that little snot nose punk wins tonight I will scream... The judges hammered Cook last night too... Blah Blah Blah

Leighann said...

You know what, if that little ankle biter wins it'll be the end of AI for me.

I was happy with Cook's performances but really thought he'd go out with a bang and was more than a little surprised when he didn't.

I am very slammed at work today. How are y'all?

Paul McCartney is #6.
And Dee Murray #7. Who is that you say? Listen to all Elton John albums from the '70s. Great bassman!

See you later....

I think I am spent after yesterday. I really zero opinion on this matter.

Mt. Cat, are you planning to move through all instuments? I am going to start studying up on flute and harmonica players. I am weak in those areas. :)

The Mountain Cat said...

Phfrankie Bondo said...

Mr. Mountain Kitty Cat you blog about them there music folks all you want to. I just can't play along onacounta I never paid much attention to who did what or played what. Shame on me I know.

Doc said...
