I guess it might be because I don't think "rock" when I think of David Bowie. I've always seen him more as a pop artist. Not saying he doesn't make any rock music though.

I'd hear David Bowie like twice a day. Mostly Changes.

Anectodal (anəkˈdōdl)
adj.
(of an account) not necessarily true or reliable, because based on personal accounts rather than facts or research.

And after reseach of places putting Bowie in their top ten classic rock artists lists, marking Bowie and Glenn Frey's deaths in a classic rock article, and one website literally nicknaming David Bowie the "lord of classic rock," I don't think that means he's modern oinstrumental hip hop.

I'm defining classic rock as any notable commercially successful rock band from the 60's. 70's, 80's or 90's. As for radio play on a classic rock stations, in Canada, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Oasis ect, all those 90's bands now get heavy play on the classic rock station.

As for The Cure, the Smiths & the Sex Pistols, they sold millions of records, and topped the pop charts during their time. I'm not taking a rigid view of classic rock because the list is far more interesting when you have a big tent.

If you want to change your votes go ahead, I'll tally up tonight.

LOL. I might concede that he's classic rock, but he is not the lord of it. I'd give crown that to Led Zeppelin.

The debut and Presence. IV gets old, a lot of the folkier songs sound like filler.
