    Steely Dan's one of my favorites. Their "Two Against Nature" album sucked royally, though. As I remember, that one is what got them some awards (Grammys?) didn't it?

    My friends, I am about to school you all in rock bands.

    Best drummer?

    Neil Peart or Ginger Baker - Gingers awesome, with Steve Gadd coming up close behind

    (YYZ - Peart)

    Best guitarist?

    Jeff Beck (with Eric Johnson, Page, Gallagher, Hendrix etc. following)

    ('Cause We've Ended As Lovers) - Not the best version of the song though.

    Best bass player?

    Jack bruce (Geddy Lee and James Jamerson etc. follow him up)

    (White Room with Clapton)

    Best singer?

    This is a tougher one, because people are very picky with vocalists.

    It is a toss up between Robert Plant and Chris Cornell for me, they have uber voices.

    (Robert Plant, Rock and/or Roll)

    (Chris Cornell and the Bond Theme)

    GW just served you.

    Hey P45, if you don't mind. Can I add an instrument to your most excellent thread?

    Keyboards.

    Man, I do love the keyboard player. If I may be so bold, much of the time you probably don't notice the keyboard player, but man would you miss him if he were gone.

    My vote for the best goes to a guy who wasn't really known for being in a band, but he played with so many bands and made such a contribution that he really is a legend.

    I mean, of course, Billy Preston.

    I like John Lord with Deep Purple. Ray Manzarek with the Doors. Keith Emerson with Emerson Lake and Palmer. But Billy Preston is very very special.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEL2sr4ZcOs

    In addition to his own albums and singles, he played on these:

    As a guest/session performer

    (1972) Exile on Main Street (Rolling Stones)

    (1973) Ringo, organ on "I'm The Greatest"
    (1973) Goats Head Soup (Rolling Stones)
    (1974) Goodnight Vienna, clavinet on the title track, electric piano on "Only You (And You Alone)"

    Add anything! I had picked Tony Banks from Genesis as my favorite keyboardist.

    Hey I'll add one - Best female vocals. My pick is Udu Sade. I love her voice.
