Re: Gary Lewis & the Playboys vs. Gerry & the Pacemakers!

Closer than I think it should be, given that some of the Wrecking Crew was playing behind Gary Lewis. But...whatever.

Re: Jefferson Airplane vs. Steppenwolf!

It wasn't the sound quality, but rather the SONG quality, that I didn't like. I was playing it in my car, which may have been part of the reason I wasn't too impressed.

Re: Who Had the Best 10 Year Run in Rock History?: Roundtable - Ultimate Classic Rock

Simple to answer--the Beatles. They released their first record in 1962 and their last in 1970, for 9 years of material. They didn't even need the 10th year! :)
