    Shouldn't we be voting on who we like more, personally? That's how I would go about it. Skill is a factor, but obviously there are going to be biased opinions, that's the whole point.

    That's what I personally do. I vote for those I do appreciate more.

    It's a new tune to me...And I'll admit, Free sounds pretty rockin' here; much bettter than the radio crap I get force fed. That's some sweet guitar work indeed. The vocals are good too. Guess I just got taken to skool!

    I still like McCartney best of the final four vocalists, but this is good. I stand corrected.

    haha I never liked McCartney but I do like some of this songs where the vocals are just top notch. It is just about taste and opinion. I'm glad that I posted something that you or anyone can enjoy from a band that didn't get a lot of airplay especially here in the States (Outside of All Right Now).

    I'm aware of Kossoff as well as Shaw but Free is more of a "rock" band than Styx. Then again I have listened to Free live more than Styx. Yeah, I voted for the Koss...

    Oh no, Tomcat has went over to the dark side! :D That leaves me as the solo CRF person that doesn't worship Rodgers. Cool that you got someone to listen to (and like) something they normally wouldn't though..

    As far as guitarists..everyone's ear is so different I will be shocked if anyone I like makes it past a couple rounds. Always thought Mustaine was an exceptional player, but he will make a first round exit.

    I have to admit that these polls are my favorite thing on the board..frustrating or not I enjoy doing them and seeing the results.

    (^ not a bad song :))
