I'm sure I've seen threads like this one.
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

Pete Doherty in The Libertines.

Björn Olsson in Soundtrack Of Our Lives

Freddie Mercury in Queen.

Both Morrissey and Marr in The Smiths. Yes, The Smiths are great. But they could've done much more. It's a bit too sterile from time to time. Would be lovely with someone between Morrissey and Marr when it comes to creativity. As it is now it's a bit too steretypical. Yeah first a verse with Morrissey singing, then the guitar riff for this song 2 times (the one that was in the intro btw), back to verse, the riff into the chorus. It's like they take turns throwing out their stuff and doesn't do it in harmony as much as I'd like to.

But Morrissey was a prick though...

Vito Bratta was way too good for White Lion. It's a shame that he was with one of the worst singer/song writers in rock.

Yes, talented though. But his charades gets boring after awhile. And so does Marr's guitar riffs, as beautiful as they are. But The Smiths could've exploded with one more dimension in their music imo. They are talented enough.

Freddie Mercury in Queen


I can't agree. Brian May was (and still is) a Great guitar player, great technique, great sound, great touch..

You could maybe argue about Taylor and Deacon, but Mercury wasn't too far ahed for Queen, they were a perfect mix
just another Heavy Metal guitar player

More like, Mercury threw away his voice singing for a band that wrote such boring songs, and I guess he was part of the problem. It's the Dream Theater syndrome all over again. Fantastic musicians but without songwriting it doesn't really help much.

And on topic.

John Frusciante. His soloproject is just RHCP away.

Flea is great, but Frusciante is incredible.

But John Frusciante's soloproject is better than Mars Volta?

No!

EDIT: although he's better off solo than in the RHCP imo. Also, John & Omar's work together is pretty good.

People say this a lot and I think it's a case of parroting. You say it because someone else said it, and they said it because someone else said it. He's just as awful as Kerry King.

No way. George Harrison is way better than Bob Dylan.
