Congratulations. This list is hilarious. So you decided to put down Dylan, Beatles, Who and Zeppelin at the same time :clap:

Do standards count? I don't think I prefer any of the original jazz standards apart from Ornette and Satchmo's work to what artists have interpreted them as in the years following.

Well, they're his opinions, which is allright for me. It is always good that your opinions are original and you are just not following the public opinion. At least when you truly believes those covers are better. It is stupid just to be different cos it is cool.
What made his list hilarious was just that he insulted many artists without any shame.

I did not mean to imply that the originals were not great also. Its just that I like the way the covers "tweak" and "twist" the originals into something different and interesting. "Variety is the spice of life".
