26th Annual Whale Bowl of Rock-N-Roll Day Two Recap
Day Two is in the record books!
Thanks for your votes.
The 26th annual Whale Bowl of Rock-n-Roll produced another day of tight battles and blowouts as we segued from Round One to Round Two.
Today began with a rousing Round One battle match-up between the Rolling Stones and Cheap Trick.
While both groups had passionate voters, Stones fans prevailed, and sent their boys into a Round Three battle scheduled for Friday.
Then came the Led Zeppelin/Bob Seger challenge.
I suppose you could say whoever goes up against Plant, Page and company will be in for a tough run, and Bob Seger found that out in a blowout that sent Zepp into the next round.
In the other Round One battles, Lynyrd Skynyrd handed Jimi Hendrix a big loss, as did Pink Floyd over Guns-n-Roses.
The only close battle occurred between Foreigner and Kiss, with the Whale Lines lighting up from fans of both bands.
The guys in Foreigner toughed it out for a trip to Round Two.
Speaking of Round Two which began this afternoon, The Eagles squeezed past Journey in what we figured would be a close one, then Creedence Clearwater Revival survived a big scare, edging Van Halen by only 2 votes.
The Ozzy Osboure/Tom Petty battle came next with another close one resulting in a three vote margain for the victor - Ozzy - who will now move to Round Two competition.
Late afternoon battles closed out the day with The Who spanking The Beatles...sorry Fab Four.
Aerosmith and AC/DC, both Whale Bowl favorites from past years went head to head in the final battle of the day with only one 'A' team emerging - AC/DC.
Friday will bring you the remaining Round Two and Three battles, and then the Last Four Round leading into the Championship Round, all packed into one day!
The voting kicks back in around 8:10am with the Whale Morning Show, and hourly battles will continue throughout the day, culminating with the Championship Round beginning around 5:15pm.
