Of course not, but it’s a great subject for discussion.Rock is not really my thing so I don’t have a horse in this race, but I see a couple of issues that are clouding the debate somewhat.Firstly, rock is not an American art form. You guys are responsible for pretty much every other form of popular music - Rock n roll, doo wop, soul (Detroit & Atlantic), bluegrass, Western swing, R&B, (arguably) jazz, be-bop, disco, hip hop - the list is endless. But ‘rock’ in and of itself is an intrinsically British - dare I say English - product. So the best the rest can ever be is No.2.Secondly, The Stones are not just the greatest rock band in England, or Britain, or Europe. They are the greatest rock band IN THE WORLD. There cannot be a US equivalent, nor Canadian.Having said that, my vote is Bruce and the E Street Band.
