Feel free to turn this into a shit fight if you have to - but its just an opinion...
Here goes first up...
Bob Dylan:
Can anyone name a great Dylan album? If you think you can, you're a lying turd. His idolisation says a great deal about music's sheeplike mentality. He imitated players more deserving than him, and early on was gifted golden opportunities to impress influential, well to do, tone deaf beard strokers, who had begun to venture from public libraries to gigs.
He 'writes' lengthy, bitter, pretentious, vague rhymes, and sets them to simple strumming and parping harp blowing. But he did manage to get John Lennon (also vastly over-rated) to copy him :roll: .
In a nutshell, he can't play, can't sing, can't write a decent tune, and is miserable.

not what i listen to all the time but yes , they all wrote some very good stuff, because you might not like something does not make it bad. Musically speaking the 3 you listed that is.

music is not sports.

Guns n Roses:
No1, GNR was just an 80s hair metal band in the same league as Poison and Motley Crue, and a poor imitation of aerosmith - which ain't saying much.
No2, the worst imaginable 'tunes' like november rain were rolled out, all whilst murdering better tunes like live and let die, as were the endless cliches (bandanas and hats / legs astride / jack daniels / super models / unfathomable in jokes).
No3, the musicianship was always second rate at best, especially when ham fisted attempts at using piano / flute / orchestras etc were tacked on.
No4, the video for paradise city tries to show that GNR had a huge crowd for them, but they were way down the list at a big festival - so the myth that they were any good was created.
No5, Axl is an awful singer, and deserves no respect.
:mrgreen:

Way to start some SHIT deuce. :mrgreen:

My ex always preferred calling me a "piece of shit". I suppose it's all the same?

I will say this again. Maybe I won't be called arrogant this time? It's not always about how great it is, but whether it can move you or not. I'm certainly not going to say Dylan didn't offer up some turds, but all artists who have made a career of it have. Who listens to Francesco Zappa on a regular basis? Sorry if you do, but I don't.

Dylan is also responsible for The Band. One of my favorites.

I'll add this one to sleepy's list.

I like Chinese Democracy, and this Stiv Bators {RIP} cover. The rest does nothing for me.

Lol - this stuff I've posted isn't necessarily accurate or true - in fact I'm not sure I could back up my arguments should anyone show me how much of a tit I am. But its just something to stimulate some harmless mass-debating on a weekend.
Cheers

But someone here thinks they stink, so thats good enough for me.

Can't say anything bad about Rush. Not my favorite band. Geddy sounds like a cat trapped in the fan belt of a car. You laugh, but I actually chopped up our old family cat. She crawled into the shroud around the fan on a cold winter's day. I went out and cranked the car, and chopped her into bits. But, no one knows about human suffering more than Neil Peart. Read his books for more clarification. Excellent writer!

Well said. This is how I felt about seeing The Wall live in 1980, as I commented on the "What Happened To You Today" thread. I can relate to what Plook said...I like The Wall but it was never really one of my favorites, and yes the concert was relatively short, no encore. But that performance moved me in a way that only a handful of concerts have, and it stays with me to this day.

The same can be said when I saw the Stones in 1975. I didn't like the Stones at the time, I didn't want to like the Stones. I went almost as a novelty, so I could say I'd seen them. But it was one of the best concerts I ever saw, because it moved me, because they were so in the groove with the audience, and I've liked them ever since.

Please let me know when you write a song that is better than It's Alright Ma I'm Only Bleeding, alright Deuce? And post a link. I mean, if we live that long.

My entry: 90% of the famed blues players who began recording after, say, 1962. They are not only overrated, they're apparently incapable of originality on any level.

Frank Zappa, Hot Rats-CPIII. Stopped experimenting. Conceptual continuity=no new ideas. Became a horrid guitarist in the 80's under the guise of complexity. Thought that adding dissonance to classical music made him a composer. Even worse movie maker. Baby Snakes was Zappa the director in love with Zappa the musician.

Of course I'm kidding.
