I don't really care about the duets. I think he has done enough good and popular songs to be above Jagger or Bowie.
Can you please name some? Because I can't think of any.

Running with the Night, The Only One. I think all the songs on Can't Slow Down are ok and it was a huge seller, critics just get snobby about it and miss it from their lists all the time.

Well it depends what you like. Something that rocks a bit like Jet or Maybe I'm Amazed? Or maybe ballads like Only Love Remains, Here Today, London Town, Warm and Beautiful. Or something with more of a dance beat like Take it Away, With a Little Luck, Silly Love Songs. Albums? The Band on the Run album. All kinds of other songs from folk like Callico Skies, more of a quirky song like Let Em' In, bubblegum pop like CMoon, dramatic film tune like Live and Let Die. Many others.

His solo stuff on a par or ABOVE Bowie?

I like some Bowie songs like Life on Mars, Starman, Ashes to Ashes, Space Oddity, but he is overrated.

I never realised it was Beatles fans dismiss the merits of every other artists albums ever recorded week.

What next? Ringo's solo output eclipses that of Stevie Wonder & Frank Zappa combined?

I don't know man, Liverpool 8 is a pretty good song. I think it might be better than Mozart.

The bassline to China Girl is awesome, & fun to play on bass. I don't think Bowie's overrated, just unique.
