well, yes...yes they did let him pick twice. My guess would be because they didn't take him picking Eminem seriously. smile

Elvis shouldn't be anywhere near as high as he is, Miles Davis should definitely be above Eminem (who I don't even think should be on the list). The Stones should be number 2.
