Thread: Your Musical Mount Rushmore

BIGV - 10/9/2018 at 07:49 PM



OK, visualize this, four of the musicians either you feel had the biggest influence on Rock 'n Roll or simply your four favorites on a Mt. Rushmore type of rock wall face.....Only one member per band.

1) Chuck Berry
2) Duane Allman
3) Mick Jagger
4) Lowell George


BrerRabbit - 10/9/2018 at 08:31 PM

Jimi Hendrix for the Washington

Was thinking Duane for the Jefferson, but anything Jefferson belongs to Jorma Kaukonen, so,

Jorma for the Jefferson

Garcia for the Roosevelt

Duane Allman for the Lincoln

good idea for a photoshop project.

OP was for RnR. I will add a category for jazz and blues because they influenced most of our choices

Jazz
Bird
Miles
Trane
Monk

Blues
Robert Johnson
Blind Willie Johnson
Elmore James
Muddy Waters


Fretsman - 10/10/2018 at 01:39 AM

Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, & Keith Richards

Tough to leave out so many icons, Honorable mentions.....Gregg, Duane, Dickey, Stevie Ray, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and a few more from the '50's plus some recents with musical resumes.


SkyDog4President - 10/10/2018 at 05:56 AM

Going with the Personal Rushmore --

Duane, SRV, Jimi, without batting an eye.... but having a rough time choosing a 4th between Clapton, Derek Trucks, Lowell George, and Roy Buchanan. Because he hasn't been on here yet, and, as a de-facto rep for the relatively younger generation on here, I'll say Derek. (I know the rules were "not from the same band" but SkyDog and DT never played together so I'm counting them separate even tho they were the bookends for the Brothers)

Duane, Stevie, Jimi, Derek.

Wail on!!

JimSheridan - 10/10/2018 at 05:01 PM

The cover of Deep Purple's "In Rock" provides a decent answer...

....like some of the other posters, I'd be happy to pick some faves, and maybe I'd narrow it down just to guitar players. Today, I'll say Jeff Beck, Tommy Bolin, Derek Trucks, and Mick Taylor.

hotlantatim - 10/10/2018 at 08:50 PM

Individuals is much tougher than bands for me. First pass, off the top of my head, I'd go with....

Gregg Allman
Paul McCartney
Gary Louris

fender31 - 10/10/2018 at 09:32 PM

As far as Musical influences, that is so tough for me to pick

Tony Iommi

But I could make a 100 choices easily.

KCJimmy - 10/12/2018 at 09:06 PM

I guess I'm hard core. I'd have to go with:

Duane
Dickey
Warren
Derek

Rename it "Mount Jam"


BrerRabbit - 10/13/2018 at 04:25 AM

Haha, Mount Jam, good one.

Looks like Chuck Berry, Duane Allman, and Jimi Hendrix are making the cut here. Havent counted up who would be the fourth, saw a few Elvis maybe.


robslob - 10/13/2018 at 06:33 PM

How anyone could leave Dylan off of this list is way beyond me. Yeah, I know I did, but my post was obviously in jest.


BrerRabbit - 10/13/2018 at 07:59 PM

There are four or five Dylans, with this last post - might just get Dylan on Mt. Rockmore.


fensranger - 10/13/2018 at 08:28 PM

Lenin/Mccartney
Springsteen
Mick Jagger
