I remember Damn Yankees from back in the day as they were the front cover of a music magazine when their first record was released. I heard some stuff and was unimpressed (and I knew nothing of Ted at that point). I would have picked Bon Jovi when I was 14 or 15. Now I would choose to not choose.

DY is fine. Pretty good, probably underrated... but they don't have a Living On A Prayer, or a Shot Through The Heart, or a Wanted Dead Or Alive, or a I'll Be There For You, or a Never Say Goodbye... Bon Jovi had the songs.

Damn Yankees and Night Ranger are vastly superior to The Assistant Night Manager.

i don't know much about Damn Yankees, but Bon Jovi and Journey are probably my 2 least favorite classic rock bands.

Not a huge fan of either band, but DY has a couple of songs I like, wheres Bon Jovi has pretty much none.

The second question was "Which band had the best guitarist," and if we're talking best, Sambora is probably a more versatile player than Nugent, so I voted that way. That said, I like Ted's playing style better than Richie's. More aggressive and unhinged.

Yes, are you sending me check or will it be a bank transfer?

Sambora is the stronger guitarist/musician in general. Damn Yankees is enjoyable, even if they sound incredibly dated.
