Janet: Although I remember the group Jon Butcher Axis from the early days of MTV, I wouldn't have been able to name one of their songs. I just looked them up on You Tube and watched their video for "Don't Say Goodnight". It sounded pretty good. Thanks for mentioning JBA!


Tor: Thanks for visiting! Karen Carpenter had one of the most soothing and crystal clear voices around. My favorite Carpenters tune is "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft".

Hugh: Very nice choices! Just based on his solo on "My Generation", I almost picked John Entwistle for bassist. In addition to his keyboard work, I think Steve Winwood is one of the all-time great vocalists.
