    Maybe not for the intro (but an argument can be made), but Ginger's drums on Cream's "White Room" are just fantastic.

    "You could be mine" would have been so much better with Steven Adler on drums.

    Music is subjective so I try to just ignore shit, but holy fuck, that is a really clueless statement to make. Please tell me you were just being really sarcastic. REALLY sarcastic. Or that maybe Matt Sorum blew you off when you tried to get an autograph or he killed your puppy or something...

    That's a good call. Horrible, despicable human being; but he really was deft on the sticks.

    I sometimes listen to Cream, though, and wonder if his jazz-style was just a little bit of an odd fit for a blues-rock outfit. He's great and I agree with "White Room;" and I love his playing on "Deserted Cities" (he POUNDS on the drums during the solo); but I sometimes feel that Cream was really two bands: Eric/Bruce and Ginger doing his own thing.

    Spirit of Radio starts off with guitar. Change that to "Mystic Rythyms" also by Rush.

    first of all, no wipeout = list fail!

    painkiller should be way higher, and smells like teen spirit has NO right to be on there otherwise better than most of these type of lists
