Yea as usual.

I would have thought Hendrix would be doing at least a little bit better.

I'd go Hendrix definitely, possibly the first to really blend pop, the avantgarde and the plain fucking cool.

I love the The Beatles, but I don't really see their influence in music as much as I do of VU or Bob Dylan.

Default The Beatles are the only choice.

I think the Beatles influence might be overstated but the Beatles did influence Dylan and the Byrds to go electric. The Beatles did start the British Invasion that included the The Kinks, The Who and the Stones. The one thing that separates the Beatles with VU or Bob Dylan is that the Beatles influenced Nirvana, King Crimson, Ozzy Osbourne and then they can influence the Monkees and the Jonas Brothers. The Beatles influence is across the board. Britpop and the Alternative rock scene of the 90's was more influenced by the Beatles than Dylan or The Velvet Underground.

That would be "Tomorrow Never Know", "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Good Vibrations".

This is hard because the most influential musician does not equal the greatest musician. I'd have to say Elvis Presley for right now in terms of Rock 'n Roll. Maybe Chuck Berry. I don't know...it's a tough question! roflmao!

I believe it was Brian Eno who said that, although not many listened to the Velvet Underground when it came out, those who did went on to start bands of their own.
