    It's accurate. Kwami gave Christ Punchers a 3rd vote, then Gryphon got ninja'd, but Timmay picked up the correct count and continued on with a 4th vote.

    The latest standings, as posted by Schmeankman above, are current and accurate.

    Oops, I didn't see Timmay's post. Cherokeesam's right, though.

    Are you kidding? Besides maybe Entwhistle, I would ay the band fits pretty damn well together. An abomination would be more like:

    Vocals: Rob Halford
    Guitar: Bob Dylan
    Drums: Buddy Rich
    Bass: Les Claypool
    Keyboards: (well, I'm not sure any keyboardist could work with that arrangement)
    Songwriting: Robert Fripp

    You see, there, no matter how good the musicians might be in their own respects, the band would be an uncoordinated mess that wouldn't fit together in the least. With the band we got, we have four of five members who have dabbled in prog rock at one point or another in their careers and a songwriter that can make ANYTHING work (Zappa).

    Agree with Hungryfreak 100%. While there's the potential for abomination bands in the coming weeks (yay!), I think this one actually turned out as a pretty solid dream prog supergroup, with an eclectic and amazingly innovative frontman heading up the most technically proficient artists in rock 'n' roll.

    The concept albums and 20-minute instrumental epics would probably be hard for your average mainstream jack to swallow, but the critics and fellow artists would ADORE this band. (And if any of their songs made it to RB, guaranteed red devils on everything except vocals....;)
