Based on the above criteria, TR has made the shortlist of candidates, with the final 49 to be determined mainly by readers votes. You can vote as many times as you like (that's AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE) and the final votes will be combined with those from the site's staff to provide the final result.
Something a bit different than the usual 'best band/live show/etc' eh?
You can vote, as many times as you like, right here , under the 'Musicians' section...Final results to be tallied October 21st
And while you're at it, why not DIGG IT too?
