Mars Volta and Tool are in... but no Porcupine Tree, Kansas or Queensryche?

Yep. Looks like Rolling Stone still has that flavor-of-the-month readership. :roll:

To be fair, of the five bands you mentioned Steve, I'd only consider putting Kansas in the top 10.

Well, the first two were on the list (not my call)... and some would probably argue that QR might be too poppy to qualify, but you've gotta admit that Mr. Wilson & co. certainly have the back catalog and pedigree to make that list... or at least come in at a very close 11.

I've got most (if not all) of their CDs... but they don't get a lot of play time. The few things I've listened to were decent, but certainly not worthy of the company they are keeping on that list.

Rush, Tool Musicians Jam Together
7/23/11


Can you imagine what might happen if members of Rush, Tool, Primus and The Police got together? Well, you don’t have to use your imagination, because it’s happened.

Neil Peart, Danny Carey, Les Claypool and Stewart Copeland have hooked up at Copeland’s studio for a jam session under the name CCCP (a very Soviet name).

They filmed the event, and you can hear what the four came up with on a song they call Count Drumula by clicking here.

I came across this while looking for the Alice Cooper story... It's just a video of the guys goofing off, but it's good for a chuckle. 8)

I've never actually been big on QR, I mean I'd definitely put them on a list of prog bands, but top 10? Not a chance. PT on the other hand are all sorts of awesome, but the list already pretty full as is, and they certainly don't beat out Coheed or Marillion, although they're definitely top 15.

That's why I mentioned bands like Mars Volta and Tool. PT may not beat the top bands on the list, but they certainly should rank higher than those two.
