I don't tend to make competitions of the bands I like... I like them, or I don't.. I like all the bands you listed, and I like Ted too( and people give a damn about him too).....i'm not the one turning this into a dick measuring contest between musicians, that would be you.
I happen to think he's a rock and roll legend... many many people do... you obviously don't.
