I saw the post-crash encarnation of Skynard in concert. They were flawless. As live performances go, I would only rank the Eagles higher, and that's basically a homer vote. Based on that, I'll give them my vote, but it's a tough call.

I saw the original Skynyrd in concert. Free Bird is without a doubt the greatest song I have ever heard/seen live. Awesome.

CCR is good...they are just totally different.

I seen them with Bad Company.:thumb:
An afternoon and evening of RocknRoll, beer, , and women everywhere. Outdoor concert, early summer, right by Tablerock Lake.

One of the best I've been too.

No way is CCR in the same league as Skynard, I like CCR much better. A better comparison would have been the Skynard and the Allman Brothers and the Bros win hands down.

CCR. It's rich and tonal like a good cigar after a fine meal....you sit there and enjoy it as it washes over your being and soothes your ears. It's like an aural massage.

Plus, The Dude plays it in his car.

I had some Skynard tickets a few years back, I wish I had went, but, it was Fathers Day weekend and my sister never gets to do much with both her kids being small at the time, sooo I let her and her husband have my 2 tickets and I baby sit for her, and let them drive my 65 Mustang to the concert. she said it was so good she ALMOST felt guilty for taking the tickets, but I was happy she got to do something special with her husband on fathers day. See how nice I am. :thumb:

The true test is who's in the Rock and Roll HOF and who isn't.

CCR was inducted in 1993, so they've been in the Hall of Fame for 12 years. Skynyrd has not yet been inducted. So I'd have to go with CCR for $400, Alex.

CCR rules. I dig Skynard, but Fogerty's vocals and lyrics just bury Skynard...

...Now Molly Hatchet and Skynard, Skynard no contest...

John Fogerty by himself is better than any two artists in Skynyrd/Rossington Collins.

For a guy that grew up only a few miles from the Beach Boys he sure made you think he lived that Bayou Sound.

Definitely one of the top 10 musical geniuses of his era.

Mike & Russ here is most of it,hope I edited it ok.He's also got quite a list of those not in along with photos.



Every year, the decrepit tone-deaf wankers in charge of the (purportedly) Rock and Roll (so-called) Hall of Fame make like assholes and crap all over the history of the art they profess to honor, overlooking the seminal performers whose efforts changed civilization while praising inconsequential one-hit wonders, doo-wop dinosaurs and happy-face dorks.

Obviously, it's the same cast of dain-bread, drool-drunk idiots who vote on the Grammys...cigar-chomping "moguls" whose musical tastes stopped evolving when they turned 21, so they vote for their sentimental favorites while raking in millions with irredeemable noise designed specifically to separate teenagers from their allowances.

You can almost hear Hall of Fame friar-in-chief Seymour Stein waxing nostalgic..."Todd Rundgren? Never heard of him. But man, I remembered copping my first feel from Hillary Hogbottom in the back seat of a '57 Chevy while listening to the Penguins' 'Earth Angel'..."

Of course, Stein is also the founder of Sire Records, which explains why Sire labelmates the Ramones and Talking Heads got into the Hall on their first ballot.

"Hey kid, it's politics, y'know?" sneer the fat f*cks in charge. But that's still no excuse for this ongoing travesty.

Let's make one thing clear: rock and roll is popular music for dancing that annoys parents. And a great many of the acts currently enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame do NOT meet this simple criteria. You know who you are. And like Glen Matlock, you should be replaced by artists, musicians and performers of substantially more merit (which does not necessarily imply "talent" in the professionally competent sense, as if chops ever meant squat in this sandbox).

But don't take my word for it...here's the official drill: "Criteria include the influence and significance of the artistís contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll." In other words, a majority of the 1,000 "experts" who cast ballots think James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt and the Lovin' Spoonful have had a bigger impact on "rock" than, say, Alice Cooper, the Sex Pistols and Black Sabbath?

Kinda hard to avoid wetting your pants when you're laughing this hard, isn't it?

Nothing against many of the second-tier tributaries, mind you--they worked hard for what little money the powers that be-bop-a-lula deigned to dole their way--but you can't say the same for coked-up criminals like Crosby, Stills & Nash, who released exactly one halfway-decent album prior to becoming a Neil Young charity project (meanwhile, Nash's original band, the Hollies, is still hoping Paul Shaffer will someday mug shamelessly through "Bus Stop"), or the Mamas & the Papas, folk vultures whose only noteworthy contribution was giving hedonism a bad name.

Well, like Alice says, "We're all gonna rock to the rules that I make," starting with the following shortlist of the Damned and their erstwhile Replacements (neither of whom will probably even get nominated, the bastards), as well as suggested inductors who aren't members of U2.

Even when the turds get it right (AC/DC, the Animals, Frank Zappa, Parliament/Funkadelic, the Velvet Underground, Queen, the Clash), they still manage to flush the toilet backward; CJ is just as much a Ramone as Joe Walsh is an Eagle and Ron Wood is a Rolling Stone. Of course, these are the same aliens from the planet F*ckwit who honored Tom Petty's Heartbreakers and Elvis Costello's Attractions (who only played on a portion of his records), but not Buddy Holly's Crickets, Neil Young's Crazy Horse, Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band or Bob Marley's Wailers (much less Motown's Funk Brothers or Hal Blaine's "Wrecking Crew" posse of L.A. studio shoguns, see "Sidemen and Women" below). Memo to Sammy Hagar (and especially Gary Cherone): engage PR/lobbying lasers now.

Worst of all is the locker-room towel snapping in the "Non-Performer" category where ruthless record label executives whose "accomplishments" are defined by how effectively they rape, pillage and subvert the artists they sign to "professional services" contracts that make picking cotton in chains sound like a picnic. Heaping praise, honor and glory on their Propecia-slathered pointy heads, these payola pimps are so sleazy, they charge back the cocaine they hoover backstage to their artists' accounts. And aren't they doing a marvelous job coping with the MP3 revolution? Yes indeed, these titans of corporate terrorism should absolutely be hung in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...from nooses around their tiny little testicles.

Leonard Chess
Ahmet Ertegun
Berry Gordy, Jr
Nesuhi Ertegun
Syd Nathan
Clive Davis
Chris Blackwell
Jim Stewart
Mo Austin

If you insist on increasing the Rock and Roll HoF's clickstream, http://www.rockhall.com/, but please don't buy anything or otherwise support their puerile efforts.

Instead, grab every record by every artist on this list and go see most of them in concert, then try to understand why Gene Pitney has a plaque and they don't.

Skynyrd IMO only has a 3 songs that i really like (simple man, free bird, Tuesdays gone). But those few songs are among the best classic rock songs of all time.

CCR on the other hand has a buch of good songs but none of them reach the level of Skynyrs's best. Plus they are the Dude's favorite band.

Probably would go with Skynyrd.

Sorry, I enjoy listening to LS, but my vote goes to CCR by a country mile.....

Besides the fact that they are totally different in their genre, CCR paved the way for a lot of the bands that later became "Southern Rock".....(IMO)

As for all touting "Freebird", a song I like too, I would easily put up "Proud Mary", "Bad Moon Rising", "I Heard It Thru The Grapevine" (their long play version), & "Who'll Stop The Rain" in the same vein.

JMO....

Interesting take.....but i disagree.

I would day that Skynyrd's legend is built on one song..."Freebird"....while CCR's legend is one of many very good songs that are still considered some of the best classic rock songs.

Im just going on personal taste. To me i dont really like much of Skynyrd's stuff other than the three songs i listed but those few are among my favorites. Hell id even go so far as to say overall they are not that good of a band.

CCR is a hell of a great band with a lot of good songs. Though i just dont listen to them that often is all. I have a lot of respect for them but they just dont fit my taste in music all that well.

Both bands are decent. But anytime I listen to classic rock stations they usually overdose their audiences with both. So I'm sick to death of both bands. I was more into Hard Rock and Punk rock when I was a teenager. I listen to stuff like Green Day ect. nowadays.

So I voted for Gaz and his Rolling Hills Blue Grass Band.:thumb:

Amen to that. I don't know how the hell these "Classic Rock" stations can stay on the air. Listen to it for a day or two, and you have heard their entire playlist. Listen for a week, and you start going apeshit humming "Saturday Night's alright for fighting" while on the crapper...It just won't...get...outta your...head...

There are a couple of songs by Sknyard that I really like, but Creedence Clearwater Revival pumped out a lot of great work. They have to be the winner here.

Interestingly, I was kind of going nuts last week because I couldn't get that opening guitar riff from "Up Around the Bend" out of my head. People look at you funny when you hum it, too.
