A Classic Rock station in St. Louis, K-Hits 96, has an amusing promotion, Mt. Rockmore. Listeners vote on the station web site for the four rock artists who should be carved into stone like Mt. Rushmore.

If I could add a fifth, I'd put Alvin Lee, but that is a very idiosyncratic pick that only a guitarist would make. Sixth? Probably David Bowie.
