Rush should definitely be up there but Waters should have been higher. I was happy to see Prince in there, he's an excellent live performer.

It's good to know that I've seen a third of these live acts. Doubt that I would ever try to see Beyonce, U2, Coldplay or Lady Gaga... btw where was Madonna? Isn't she suppose to be popular?

How can Rush be the best live act???
They don't deviate from anything; close your eyes & you would think you were listening to a record.

I agree with Rush being at the top but the appearance of Coldplay in the list negates any validity.

Awful list. There's no band in it I'd really want to see. Was it a public poll? In that case I'd respect it as the expression of a certain demographic. (But what mag/website has a demographic that encompasses prog fans, r&b and rap fans? Geek)

^ A good question, its a magazine that focuses on musicians and not biased to one genre for sure,but I think it is heavier to rock in general rather than hip hop/r&b or jazz. I read the articles/interviews pretty much, I am not a musician so I don't have interest in the equipment they discuss or promote. Their tagline is "The No 1 website for musicians".
I do like the list, don't think its awful at all, because it does have a variety of artists so I don't get the sense it is about just pop music....I mean Lady Gaga was #19, seems this list was not compiled by a bunch of kids or radio stations.
 
Just the fact that an artist like Porcupine Tree are in the top 10 tells me it was very well done..it was a poll voted on by the readers of the magazine. One has to assume a lot of the readers are musicians.
I would say that is a pretty good set of voters.
