Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi has already been named on lead guitar, beating Jimi Hendrix and Chuck Berry to the spot.

Meanwhile, Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant was voted lead vocalist, ahead of the Small Faces' Steve Marriott and Jon Bon Jovi.

Voting has been running all week, with the bass guitar player set to be appointed today (March 26th).

Moon regularly places high in best drummer lists and ranked second in a top 50 rock drummers poll conducted by Stylus Magazine in 2007.

The publication stated that I Can See For Miles, The Ox and Young Man's Blues gave the best examples of the drummer's genius.
