You know I completely forgot about that fat man in the bathtub who was once a dixie chicken down on the farm wearing sailin' shoes crying I got a rocket in my pocket, feats don't fail me now.

One of my all time favorite bands... I can't believe I just totally forgot to list them. I might have to bump them up ahead of Fleetwood Mac. Man.... I just had some of their CD's out earlier.

Like many others I have a hard time identifying just one band or artists. I suspect it would be different from time to time depending on my mood.

I was surprised to see Tool listed more than once here. I would add my support for them also. On the heavier side I also like Stabbing Westward and Stained. On the Canadian front Tea Party and Moist come to mind.

There are a lot of classic rock bands that I love too but the question is for one. If I think of it in terms of being stranded on a desert island and I only have one artist's complete works then I think it would be Sarah McLachlan. I much prefer the sound of a female voice and hers is particularly soothing. More than anything I rely on music to sooth my soul and that makes music like Sarah's a necessity for me.

Like many though I really can't imagine not having the variety I have available to me with my current 30GB of VBR mp3s. In my collection there is music from the Carpenters, Tool, Sade, ELP, Metallica, and various other types of music.

1. Def Leppard
2. .38 Special
3. Molly Hatchet
4. Andrea Bocelli
5. Trick Daddy

I like music from all genres, but I've been a fan of Def Leppard since the early 80s. I started with Pyromania in Fayetteville, NC and went on a 8-show trip. They are really nice guys, a little quirky, but timeless.

In no particular order:

1. Pink Floyd (Before the break-up*)
2. Aerosmith
3. Metallica
4. The Tragically Hip
5. Van Halen

* I like the Division Bell and A Momentary Lapse of Reason but they are shadowed in comparison to DSOM, Animals, The Wall, WYWH, etc.

While they would not be my preference, I can understand picking Rush. Three really talented, prolific, energetic, and durable musicians. I recall seeing them in 1979 and was very impressed.

This is a lot more difficult than it seemed :

1. Pink Floyd (by a wide margin)
2. Led Zeppelin
3. U2

Then it gets tricky so I'll just pick 2

Pearl Jam
Alice in Chains

Bruce Springsteen gets an honorable mention here for fantastic live performances.
