    Brian Johnson dreadful singer , bon Scott was a legend , back in black was the one good album the band did after Scott died , it would have been fantastic if he lived

    Gabriel was a god

    Collins had an OK voice on songs like blood on the rooftops and one or two later songs but he was no gabriel

    Stevie Nicks...Peter Green. Both good. Like two different bands though.

    Small Faces when Rod Stewart joined. He was a great rock and roll singer - should have stuck with that rather than the ballads.

    What a great band they were and what a singer he was in his day

    Rod Stewarts wife is such a sexy woman

    Stevie nicks and Buckingham transformed Fleetwood mac

    Her vocals on gold dust woman are fantastic , also on gypsy

    She could sing like a banshee

    Not keen on her solo stuff too much although one or two crackers

    Mind you Christine Mcvie had a beautiful voice, you make loving fun is amazing

    No, just a prompt for other comparisons and thoughts.

    I was luck enough to see the Rumours line up a few years back in the Isle of Wight. Buckingham is still and incredible performer.

    Great guitarist

    Its a little cringeworthy to see bands well into their pipe and slippers age still cranking out the old hits

    Purple , Led Zep reformation etc

    Saw sabbath original classic line up at Milton Keynes bowl in 1997 as they reformed after many years apart

    They were fantastic but even after the show me and my mates were saying thank god we saw them one last time , ozzy was struggling , the other three were superb but one of the worlds greatest bands had put on a fantastic show and it should have been their goodbye .

    But in no time they were off again touring like a money making machine and even when ward finally quit due to a relapse into alcoholism and disputes , they carried on with a new drummer

    They were still at it a few years ago with a new drummer and a new album which wasn't anything special

    Its like something out of spinal tap

    Had a bit of a WSM there:

    Steve Rothery is the guitairist, Steve Hogarth is the singer, Amel should have been Arnel and John Ritchie, should have been John Lydon.

    Must try better

    Just to clarify I feckin' hate Journey! But that Perry fella had an incredible voice, a fantastic range and authentic soul all in one package. The likes of him don't come along too often.
