It is rather surprising how great lyricists like Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) are not even in the list while lots of junk is up and running :neutral:

Happily enough, Leonard is one step from the top =]

Matt Bellamy is a great (great!) musician and lyricist but he is too young to compete our man!

Nuke him http://www.nme.com/rate/greatestlyricists/7 :lol:

I am not quite sure but usually votes from the same ip address won't be valid but once.

Michail, that could be the reason. But I don't believe or better won't believe :?.

Pink_is_dead, Edlosi,
I am also not absolutely sure
but I think I can see the results of my (our) effort.
If it is an illusion, it works for us....
This is a stupid system, which deserves to be manipulated.

And Pink, you are right - the list is ridiculous, I was hesitating to spend my time on it,
but it is fun, it is nice to do it together
and Leonard IS the number 1....

Let's work.....
1988: Amsterdam 1993: Nijmegen 2008: Amsterdam|Oberhausen 2009: Cologne|Antwerp|Barcelona 2010: Ghent (8/20-21-22)|Lille
2012: Ghent (8/12)|Amsterdam (8/21-22)|Verona|Lisboa 2013: Antwerp|Brussels|Rotterdam|Amsterdam

Or it could be, that the Fans of Bellamy do exactly what we do... - they give LC 1 and Bellamy 10??! :cry:

Results are not the same on every link. Some links show 8.92 and 8.16 and on the first link on the first page 8.85 and 8.33. Which one is the valid result? :?

But let's go on - final sprint!!
