What a strange page. If this list were at all comprehensive, it would have thousands of names. How can you have Ronnie Van Zant and not (for example) Stevie Ray Vaughn. George Harrison? Eric Clapton? Neil Young? I wonder what the point is. bobanahalf (talk) 12:25, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Redundancy with Rock band? - User:Olivier

Is the title OK ? Is this Rock & Roll or simply Rock ? Is this performers or singer/artists/bands ? Ericd 11:43, 28 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Um, how is this article defining "Rock and roll"? Because a lot of the people on the list, especially the more modern ones, don't make any sense. Will Smith? Céline Dion? Moby? These aren't rock by any stretch of the imagination. -Branddobbe 08:28, Mar 11, 2004 (UTC)

I agree. List of popular music performers is the right place for those. I'll get on weeding out this list as well as I can and leave the ones I'm unfamiliar with. -- Djinn112 00:45, Mar 13, 2004 (UTC)

I translated Sexy Sadie from the Spanish Wikipedia. It's currently an orphan and I'm trying to figure out where I should list them. They're a pop rock band from Majorca. Anybody got an opinion where they should go? Isomorphic 16:21, 23 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Faith Hill = country Kelly Clarkson = pop/american-teen idol/disney channel/radio pop (neither of these are rock by any stretch of the imagination...) also, i know i'm out of my area of expertise here, but as far as Latino Rock, Santana (especially the early albums with Michael Shrieve on drums & 'the guys who later went on to Journey' ;} ) definitely qualify (specifically as psychedelic/jamrock with Latino/Mexican/Afro-Cuban jazz influences), but what i've heard/seen of Gloria Estefan & MSM (salsa?), Paulina Rubio & Shakira (who's only 1/2 Latina, btw) are also definitely not rock, more like dance/disco/pop, Shakira with a "hip-hop" influence, now (which is definitely not even "music")...
