Here is what I want you to:
1. Name your favorite singer (either solo artist or lead singer of a band works), guitar player, bass player and drummer.
2. Name who you would consider most overrated singer (same as before), guitar player, bass player, and drummer. They way I would like you to approach this is well, some one says this person is a great guitar player for example and you say meh, he is okay but nothing really to write home about.
I will start:
1. Favorite singer: Robert Plant, Favorite guitar player: Stevie Ray Vaughan, Favorite bass player: Geezer Butler, and Favorite Drummer: Neal Peart.
2. Most overrated singer: Axl Rose, most overrated guitar player: Joe Bonamassa, most overrated bass player:Pete Wentz,and most overrated drummer: Phil Collins.

Hello Friends !!!!
i am vary glad to join this forum !!!i also shared some useful info about music teacher and music !!!!!Our teacher-matching service is free, and our network is a collective of top quality teachers who we’ve screened for experience and the relevant qualifications. You can be sure that when we’re looking for a teacher for you, we’re scanning the cream of the crop!
so im taking a slightly different approach on my list, because if I chose my favourites it would be very unoriginal i.e Hendrix, so I'm going for people i view as heavy underrated, but still love.
singer- bob dylan (underrated, no, but for his singing, its unique and loveable yet gets a lot of hate, despite being perfect for his genre)
female- amy winhouse (she got a lot of hate among self-rightous people who listen to the 'correct music')
guitarist- ray davis (he is accredted as a great song writer however makes you weep in the solo to all day and all of the night)
female- st Vincent (no explanation needed)
bass player- paul McCartney (again genius song writer however his genuine musicianship is overlooked)
drummer- Stewart Copeland
singer-Bruce Dickson (only if your a maiden fan, hes ok tbh), guitarist- Clapton bassist-flea (people love him because his a bit mad) drummer- joey jordison
big shout out to drenge, suede and nina simone

This is all opinion. Fun n game. However, let's stay in reality. I don't care for Axl Rose cuz he's crazy. But over rated? The guy has the most range of any vocalist in history. Even more than Mariah Carey. Look it up. Then I look and two guys have Dave Grohl as their best and the next guy has him as most over rated. LMFAO

Wow, some of these are surprising but that's what opinions are for. Since the question is who your favorites (not who do think is the best) any name will be acceptable since it’s your opinion. I can’t comment on some because some of these names I had to Google to see if they are even real people. I have never heard of a few listed. As far as "overrated" I'd also like to add that a person can't be "overrated" if very few people have ever heard of them. On the other hand it’s what makes this forum so much fun and a source of information since we are all posting from different parts of the world where some people we mention who are well known in one country are unheard of in others.

most overrated drummer: Phil Collins

Not sure if you have ever listened to the old genesis albums 1970-1975, but Phil was a beast on those. Sad that he afterwards invented the pop drum sound and style.
Quote by Carmel
I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

I agree. Phil was a monster drummer in the early Genesis years. Fox Trot, Nursery Cryme and Lambs Lie On Broadway showcase his great playing.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.
