Jimi Hendrix finished third on 13 per cent, with the highest-placed Aussie rocker, AC/DC's wild-living Bon Scott, getting 7 per cent. Music commentator Glenn A. Baker said it was appropriate that Presley and Lennon headed the poll.

"Elvis was innately the greatest rocker who ever lived because he created this absolute firestorm when he fused black rhythm and white country music," he said.
