      This will be tough...

      Freddie Mercurary...perhaps the greatest "voice" in Rock..not to mention the largest loading zone

      R.E.M...Radio Free Europe and Flowers of Guatemala...

      I'll listen tonight and decide...

        Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

          This is the toughest one I've seen yet, imo...

              REM is one of the greatest bands of the last twenty years. They defined 'college radio' for a generation.
              Are you on the list?

                Brian May - his guitar was made out of a freakin FIREPLACE...he was a great guitarist, and Freddie Mercury was wonderful.

                REM is overplayed and overrated on every album past Out Of Time.

                  Ali..as usual...is spot-on.

                  However...there are a few REM songs that never get enough credit...here is one..

                  R.E.M. lyrics - "The Flowers Of Guatemala"


                  I took a picture that I'll have to send
                  People here are friendly and content
                  People here are colorful and bright
                  The flowers often bloom at night

                  Amanita is the name
                  The flowers cover everything
                  The flowers cover everything

                  There's something here I find hard to ignore
                  There's something that I've never seen before
                  Amanita is the name they cover over everything

                  The flowers cover everything
                  They cover over everything (Amanita is the name)
                  The flowers cover everything

                  Don't look into the sun
                  Don't look into the sun

                  There's something that I've never seen before
                  The flowers often bloom at night
                  Amanita is the name they cover over everything

                      Agreed but that does not cancel out their early work

                      It seems if a group or artist has TOO much commerical success this board wants to count that against them
                      Go Cards ...12 in 13.
