Default Best Band With Crap Musicians

This is the antidote to all those muso threads that have been popping up everywhere.

My vote goes to the New York Dolls , I have a video of them playing live & to be honest they`re f*cking awful , but they`re just so compelling to watch & wrote awesome tunes.

Who needs technical ability when you have Johnny Thunders

You mean not very technically skilled musicians?

Nirvana, definitely.

Talking Heads in the early years. Tina Weymouth was an awful bassist. Material was minimalistic, but original.

The Killers.
God damn it they're crap live, but make such catchy music.

Dave Grohl has technical skill, though he never really showed it with Nirvana, he did with Probot and QOTSA though.

Fear Of Music had some great basslines, as did Remain In Light (though Brian Eno played bass on that album too, so i dont know who did what) so i dont see how she could be that bad.

I will have to go with AC/DC...Though i dont consider them crap musicians by any means, they are just not very technicaly capable ones.

On a side note, I agree, Dave Grohl was bloody impressive with Probot boo boo.
