Australian Pay TV music channel MAX regularly shows the ultimate music countdown show, "The Essential 20". Each episode counts down the 20 most essential music lists from all over the music spectrum. The series is hosted by Australian DJ Jabba and features commentary from notable Australian music experts, artists, critics and industry heavyweights.
Recently they counted down the Top 20 'Rockstars'. ELVIS was voted in as #1 (despite the obvious lack of airplay on the channel!)
The Top Five were:
1. ELVIS PRESLEY
2. Freddie Mercury (points removed for the Vacuum Cleaner video. Not very rock'n'roll!)
3. Bon Scott (from AC/DC)
4. Jimi Hendrix
5. Mick Jagger
