So far, you've decided that The Beatles are the greatest band of all time. You also think Bowie's " The Rise & Fall Of Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars" Finally, you thought "Waterloo Sunset" by The Kinks was the greatest song of all time.

So what's missing? That's right, I'm now looking to find out who you think is the best male & female* solo artist of all time!

This runs the same formal as the previous ones, you nominate who you think is the 14 greatest male solo artist of all time (**IN YOUR OPINION**) The 14 with the most votes will go through to final were they'll fight it off for your votes


In case anyone is confused, if they have a **SOLO ALBUM** out, I'll count them as solo artist, so feel free to nominate the likes of Thom Yorke, Jarvis Cocker etc. If they only have the odd song out, ie Damon Albarn, I will NOT accept that.

The deadline is two weeks today,22nd April Happy voting!


*The female version will take place straight after the male version :P
