    Can you do this multiple times?
    Do you mean "vote early and vote often?" No, you can only vote once per day (i.e., per position).

    And I can't believe this hasn't devolved into a Peart vs. Bonham pissing contest yet....:p

    I was about to vote to vote for Carl Palmer, but then I decided to go with Buddy Rich. That vid you posted was simply amazing.

    On these list things I've noticed it's just better to agree on a choice with someone then put out; as your favorites never seem to come out on top (unless there happens to be hype or whatever).

    Yeah. I was kind of hoping a drummer I'm not all that familiar with, or at least a quirky left-field choice, would win. Neil is a talented drummer and all, but it's redudant to include him in things like these.

    Then vote Flynn. Well-known band, underrated drummer.

    Well I was gonna vote for Neil, but since I picked Alex for guitar and I don't want to look like TOO much of a fanboy, I'm gonna go for Bill Bruford. I'm shocked he hasn't been mentioned yet. Also how the hell did Zappa win frontman? Brilliant musician though he may be, he can't sing worth a damn.

    Mostly the frontman part. And I like his voice, even if he isn't some profoundly skilled vocalist.

    I don't know. I mean, guitarist I can see. Songwriter I can see. But as the lead singer of a rock supergroup? I just have a hard time thinking anyone can honestly enjoy his vocals that much.
    Plus I hate that Meltdown bull**** that he seems to love so much. Case in point: Dangerous Kitchen.

    I dunno...I can see Zappa in the frontman position pretty well. EVERYONE idolized him, and he was sort of the granddaddy (or at least the weird uncle) of everything that was rebellious in rock. Frank always did his own thing, but I seriously believe if he was alive today and decided to start up a new band, you'd have everyone from Dave Grohl to Perry Farrell to Tom Morello to --- hey, John Petrucci gladly auditioning to get in.

    Zappa was an innovator...THE innovator. He was doing things to guitars before Morello and Cliff Burton were even born. I see him as a great leader.
