    I was 5 years old when they were on Ed Sullivan and I was hooked on music . Freddie Mercury was one of the most talented musicians of all time to me . Seen him 3 times . Never seen a showman like him . He just captured the audience . Check out the video when they stole the show at Live Aid ..... without a soundcheck or rehersal ....

    Haven't trawled through the thread, so apologies if already mentioned.
    Dread Zeppelin.
    A band who do/did Zeppelin covers with a reggae feel AND had an Elvis impersonator as a frontman.

    Jimmy Buffet is summoning an army of lawyers as we speak. :)

    We have a winner!

    Any major dude could have told you that.

    As a side note, I used to have a Beagle named Major and I used to sing: “Any Major dog with half a heart surely could tell you my friend” in his general direction.

    I prefer The Ego(s), especially when giving thought to Henley.

    Love their music, but the levels of arrogance are about as high as is theoretically possible.

    Listening to the Stone Roses today, I decided a good tribute band name for them would be Messiah's Brother.

    Always thought it would be cool if there was a death metal Abba tribute band, maybe called Slabba?!.

    I quite like The Over the Hill-billies.
