Best Rock-n-Roll songs of all time....
In no special order...

Roselita by Springsteen
We Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who
Going Down by Jeff Beck
House of the Rising Sun by the Animals
Sympathy for the Devil by the Stones
One of these Days by Pink Floyd
Born to Be Wild Steppenwolf
Stone Cold Crazy by Queen
Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple
The One Thing by Inxs
London Calling by the Clash
Crazy Train Ozzy
Long Tall Sally by Little Richard
Helter Skelter by The Beatles
Whole Lotta Love by Zepplin
Lust for Life by Iggy Pop

These are the songs that got me going. Sure, a lot of people would say Stairway to Heaven but that ain't Rock-n-Roll.

Have at it...

6. I've seen The Musical Box perform Watcher of the Sky twice.
Well, I've only seen them twice - the Lamb tour and the Selling England tour. They're doing Trick of the Tail now and won't be in the US until at least January (probably later).

The Musical Box is the only tribute band with full rights and blessing from all current and former members of Genesis. They do full costume and use vintage equipment. It is like watching the original performance in a time warp.

9. "We Won't Be Fooled Again"--The Who
And my favorite lyric from that song is:

"Meet the new boss....
Same as the old boss...."
