It's funny, this thread makes me realize that for some reason the vast majority of music I listen to are from solo artists that only having backing bands or whatnot.

But anyways... and these rankings have more to do with the musician's general personality/aura if you know what I mean, not just their skill as a musician, which now that I think about is a really dumb way to rate musicians but fuck it, I'm already done.


The Beatles: George > John > Ringo > Paul

The Velvet Underground (and friends): John Cale > Nico > Sterling Morrison > Maureen Tucker > Doug Yule > Lou Reed

The Smiths: Johnny Marr > Morrissey > Andy Rourke > Mike Joyce

Lou Reed always seemed like a total **** to me, hence the low standing.

I'm touched.

As much as I love Frusciante's early output with the Peppers, I blame him for the direction they later took and have tremendous respect for Slovak's guitar work (which Frusciante pretty much copied early on)...
