Drake at #7 is ridiculous.

We already have a Greatest International Artists (non-US, non-UK) list. How about basing this list off of the Canadian Artists on that one?

Could it be that this list is based on a Canadian point of view? If so, it would have to differ from my list.

If it was, The Tragically Hip would be in the Top 10.

That's true. But it can't be from an international point of view either. I mean, who the hell is Éric Lapointe? Or Les Cowboys Fringants?

Dunno. This user is new, so maybe he doesn't have a good grip on our criteria?

Is it the same guy as the one who did the song lists for 1947-49? Not that I could make an educated statement on that topic, but they don't look all that bad really. Adam, are you here? Could you perhaps explain your approach to creating this list?

This is not really that important ...Heart is listed at #8 and the criteria at the top says "the artist must have been born in Canada" ..... as a note of trivia, none of the members of Heart were born in Canada ... nor are all the members of Steppenwolf .... and Levon Helm of the Band is an American etc .... and the Irish Rovers listed at #100 are not a rock band :lol: ....Take care

Looks like the band pretty much formed switching back and forth between Seattle and Vancouver which is close enough, even though they are originally a Washington band.

... it was in those draft dogging days of the Vietnam War but none of the members were born in Canada even though in the early years they told everyone they were from Canada :smile: ... and all the members of the Irish Rovers were oddly enough born in Ireland or Northern Ireland ...Take care

Yup, that's right. That's also why Rick James was in one of Neil Young's early bands, The Mynah Bird.

Anyway they're not exactly rock (The Irish Rovers, not Heart).

An Irish Folk band formed in Canada would be a better description ... Take care
