Let’s have a detailed look at the changes between the 1998 and 2010 editions of VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”. Of The 100 original names, 63 remained in 2010. Eric Clapton (originally at 15th) and Eagles (23rd) were the highest-placed dropouts. The top new entries in 2010 were AC/DC (23rd) and Radiohead (29th).


Within the 63 “perennials”, 11 remained in the same relative. ranking (with a margin of tolerance of +/- 2 positions). Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones were in the original top 5 and remained there in 2010. Peter Gabriel declined from 53rd greatest to 55th and Talking Heads climbed to 64th from 66th…

Madonna climbed most positions (70), followed by Johnny Cash (54), who was alive in 1998.  Elvis Costello dropped 52 positions, Van Morrison 48 and Doors 45.
