THE Beatles are still top of the pops in California as far as fans of classic rock are concerned.

The state's number one classic rock radio station, ARROW FM, asked listeners to vote for their favourite acts of all time, and after thousands of fans named their favourite groups, the network counted down the top 100 over the Memorial Day weekend (27-29MAY03).

The FAB FOUR beat out arch-rivals Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and THE Eagles to claim the top spot in the countdown.

Ironically, only two of the top 10 groups (The Eagles and Aerosmith) were American, with Fleetwood Mac being Transatlantic

The top 20 groups in the radio rundown were:

1. THE BEATLES

2. LED ZEPPELIN

3. ROLLING STONES

4. THE EAGLES

5. AEROSMITH

6. Pink Floyd

7. FLEETWOOD MAC

8. The Who

9. Elton John

10. U2

11. Van Halen

12. Bruce Springsteen

13. Queen

14. Tom Petty + THE HEARTBREAKERS

15. Boston

16. Creedence Clearwater Revival

17. The Doors

18. STEVE MILLER BAND

19. Jimi Hendrix

20. ZZ Top
