Refreshing and great to see some real musicians on here! The Boss, Stones, U2 and The Police amongst the best. Thought It would be full of modern day rubbish, yet apart from one appearance from One Direction there isn't. No Bieber or any hip hop rubbish. Brilliant!

Yes there are some real musicians here, but, and this is definitely an opinion, there are some truly poor musicians in this list as well. The Rolling Stones are all poor musicians (yes, all of them!). AC/DC makes some catchy tunes, but every song has basically the same drum beat and the same chord progressions. They (AC/DC) can play better than the Rolling Stones, but their music is rudimentary at best. Ask any cover band and they will tell you that AC/DC music can be learned in one practice session. Madonna can sort of sing, but she isn't much of a musician. One Direction is just a bunch of pretty boys who are told what to sing. Now, there are some that are great musicians that have made some great original music like Sting (The Police), the Eagles, U2, etc. Sorry if I've offended any fans here, but this is my opinion.

The Eagles are terrible. They have great chops as session musicians, but their music is about as lame as rock music can get. Nobody cares whether Keith Richards is a "poor musician." He's a creative guitar player who has written licks that people will enjoy long after he's gone (if he is in fact mortal). You can find 1,000 guys in every city who can bust out a technically challenging guitar solo. It's a much more common skill than being able to *write* great music. Your approach to music seems very misguided.

I don't like any of them except for Pink Floyd. Not offended. For my money Paul McCartney is the worst.

Guessed Miley Cyrus for "Wrecking Ball." Did the real tour feature Springsteen swinging around naked on a chain?
First thing I thought of for 360 was Anderson Cooper.

Before the internet ruined our lives; the real hardcore fans of bands would queue for tickets when their favourite bands would tour. I remember queueing for Pink Floyd tickets on their Momentary Lapse of Reason tour, sitting in the Queen St Mall for 10 hours waiting for the ticket office to open. Sadly it doesn't happen any more. The show was awesome, and nobody sucked on a sherbet before or during the show, because you don't need drugs to have a good time. At least, that's what the talking rabbit told me.

That was true even in the early 2000s. I remember waiting in line for Green Day tickets overnight. Everyone was so excited, and then around midnight someone drove up with huge speakers mounted on the outside of his car, blasting their (then) new album. People went crazy. It was such a fun and uniting experience.

First of all the guys in the Stones are definitely good musicians. As are the members of U2 and the Police; in my opinion Stewart Copeland is the best drummer of all time. Now, as to why these great acts are on this list multiple times also has to do with the incredibly high cost of tickets, which is insane now. And yes, I too remember waiting in line overnight for u2, the who, springsteen and others.
