I never dug Oasis.
I'm not a huge fan but you nailed it with that one: He's not referred to as a guitar god. He's called "the voice of his generation."
No, no, no. No. Cream may have done technically what Hendrix did. But if they really did what he did, the songs would sound exactly the same. They don’t. Hendrix had a feel nobody else ever had before or sense. It’s not like nobody else thought to play the pentatonic scales. But it’s the way he did it that made him special.
Led Zeppelin. Grossly overrated shit. So many superior rock bands out there.
For overall genres its mumble rap & screamo/death metal. Both I consider noise. Country music is also painful to listen to.
But I do have certain artists/bands I like in those categories.
As far as universally praised musicians then the Beatles and Prince.
Never understood the appeal.
I have played local shows but nothing bigger. I found hauling gear around for peanuts a drag, it wasn't worthwhile.
There's a story Clapton tells about his friendship with Townshend, it started with someone telling Townshend that this guy Jimi was ripping his whole act off. The two went to see Jimi and were blown away.
My guilty pleasure is the song Live Wire.
All this thread is saying is people have different tastes in music. Nothing wrong with that.That being said....
Hey bro Korn was my band from heaven in 6th grade. They got me into heavy shit. And I still think their first 6 or so albums were bad ass. They've drifted into a little bit of cornyness though. That's bound to happen when you have hardcore Christians in your band.
Ghost kicks ass
Aerosmith is the music definition of bland, mediocre, expendable, average, unspectacular, indifferent, passable, whatever.
Bro Country makes me cringe like Homer
What an odd mix of posts.
The whole Grunge genre but Nirvana specifically.I didnt get it as a teen, young adult or an adult and I dont get the love that Cobain gets. Hes not a lyrical genius or a musical genius/guitar god or anything close to it and damn near every top list has them/him at the top..........album, influential,band etc.
Never could really get into Radiohead or Rush, though I appreciate the musicianship.
and I had trouble putting my finger on it until I read a comment in Jay Mohr's book "Just about every Pearl Jam song is about 40 seconds too long." great band, great musicians, just when it feels like a song should naturally end, it keeps going.
In my opinion BB is unremarkable. Jimi is clearly on another level. What BB did is full of technique and nuance I can recreate. The same can't be said for Jimi's guitar. I can play the notes but not the feel.
With BB's playing, he doesn't mess around with playing too far outside the pocket; his solos have a safe zone he doesn't venture much beyond. He doesn't take the chances Jimi's did.
Listen to blues before and after BB King. BB King electrified the blues and modernized it the same way Jimi did rock. That's why your defense of Hendrix as "As a guitarist there's no overstating where he took electric playing." is hilarious while concurrently knocking BB King.
I have. I also said other things.
Separate names with a comma.
