Inspired by the similar thread, what players are technically amazing but musically poor?

The Jonas Brothers, oh wait, sorry they suck as both, never mind.

Dragonforce, but from what I understand they suck live and have no rhythm which I consider part of technical ability.

Hmm... good technically and bad musically... Michael Angelo Batio, I have to say it.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

MAB and Buckethead, I'd say. I just really don't enjoy their music.

Rusty Cooley. A very skilled man, but he lacks the talent to write a great song.

You're wrong about Bucket Head. He's a good songwriter. Soothsayer? Binge and Grab? Also check out anything on Electric Tears. Oh, and Final Wars wars is awesome too.

Dragonforce have gotten better live, plus most of the bashers have mainly seen the Graspop performance and based their opinion off of that

To MAB, I agree the vast majority of it is just wankery, but I've heard a couple songs of his that were actually really good. I think one of them was "Peace" or something like that.

That was sweet, but I find he wastes notes a lot... It feels like he does those quick scale runs to be show-offy... The trick is to do it tastefully and when it's time. A good example is this solo:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRu7QEHkjF4 Notice how john didn't shred 'till the very end? Shredding has it's place, and it's awesome, but not when it's constantly being bombarded at the listener.

Yeah, probably. And if I had his skill, I'd show off too.
