Bowie: 10th Greatest Rock Legend  

Queen beats The King to legendary rock status
23rd November 2007, 9:00 WST

Brits have dubbed Queen frontman Freddie Mercury the greatest rock legend of all time in a new survey out today.

Elvis Presley narrowly missed out on the rock’n’roll crown coming in second, while Woodstock veteran Jimi Hendrix was hot on his heels in third place.

Other contenders include former Guns N’ Roses axeman Slash and Brit rockers Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton.

The research commissioned to coincide with the launch of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, also reveals the most memorable moment in rock history as Ozzy Osbourne biting off a bat’s head on stage.

Slash’s handiwork in Sweet Child O’ Mine ranked as the top guitar solo of all time.

Top guitar riff/intro went to The Dominoes and Eric Clapton who created the classic tune Layla.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is a video game that allows players to strum along to rock hits.

Top 10 Greatest Rock Legends:

1. Freddie Mercury
2. Elvis Presley
3. Jimi Hendrix
4. Ozzy Osborne
5. Jon Bon Jovi
6. Slash
7. Meatloaf
8. Eric Clapton
9. Mick Jagger
10. David Bowie

Top 10 guitar Riffs/rock intro of all time:

.....not to mention Jon Bon Jovi at 5.

I guess part of the odd selections is that it was polled in respect to guitar rock or more specifically "guitar heroes".

Looks like you have have to be deceased or partially dead to make the top four.

I'm suprised Bowie hasn't done better there.

More crap, how can Slash beat Bowie? Bowie should be at the top or very near the top with Elvis. Where is John Lennon?

I can agree with some of them though, but Slash and Bon Jovi beating Bowie? Come on.
