Yeah, it is over. Phil had set the length of the poll to be 10 days. If he wants, he can edit it so that it goes on longer.

Michael bland, for sure. Been a big fan of him since he played with Westerberg. He's one of the greatest drummers around, he plays with such energy and is so talented.

I could change the length of the poll... but that would let your vote in (not that it would make a difference).

There's an interesting article about Grant Young and what he did after the band. I think someone posted it on the previous board too, but I'm not sure anymore.

My 3 favorite albums (Made to Be Broken, Horse, and Gravedancer's Union) all list Grant Young, so that's an easy call for me.

But when I saw them live, Michael definitely impressed.

Hands down Michael. Other drummers were great for their time and the band, but Michael is one of the best drummers I have ever seen.

Michael Bland, without a doubt.
Not that the others weren't good, but there is no comparison.
