I voted for PJ Harvey. Partly because she's great and partly because I don't know the rest of these people.

Funny how that works...I have no idea who PJ Harvey is (other than what I gleaned by quickly googling her to make sure I didn't know who she is).

Not sure how one knows PJ Harvey and not Debbie Harry, Shirley Manson or Chrissie Hynde.

Can I make the joke that "23" automatically means that "taste" isn't a part of this?  :).

Seriously, even moreso; you've never heard of Manson's band Garbage?   "Only Happy When It Rains"?  "Stupid Girl"?  The drummer - Butch Vig - produced Nirvana's "Nevermind".  Shirley is about a year or two older than Harvey, if memory serves.

If you don't you don't, but you might want to give them a shot.   

(And by the way, I'm not being critical of you; PJ Harvey is not a household name but some of those other names are, that's all).

I like Garbage, actually, though apparently not well enough to recognize the singer's name. :lol

Hayley Williams from Paramore.
This would certainly be my "other" choice. I opted for Pat Benatar and Stevie Nicks from those on the list, though.

Planet Earth.  Their songs were on the radio everywhere.   Their videos were on MTV.  I look and say, how the hell couldnt you know who that is?.

Bte, I own every album but Garbage.

I know who Shirley Manson is but I always assumed PJ Harvey was a bloke 😁 j. Never heard the music and all I know is an album cover picture.

Janis Joplin
Stevie Nicks

It was very hard to decide between Stevie and Tina Turner. Because I think Tina is the better singer of the two but I can't help LOVING Stevies voice.

My personal number one was not in the list though, but mentioned:

Stevie Nicks and, if she were on the list, Kate Bush (her first few albums are full of tracks which can be considered 'rock').

I saw her three times back in the day when she was touring Europe and she was great.


And on top of that she was hot. She was pure erotic and seduction but not in a cheap way.   :hefdaddy
