gbiasillo saidSteve Winwood…nice!!!
Yes, Tom Waits rules! I’ve grouped a few by style. 1. Late 70s / Early 80s work of Vince Clarke / Martyn Ware / Jean-Michel Jarre 2. Paul Simon / Nick Drake / Steve Winwood 3. Hans Zimmer
Paul Simon’s Graceland is like the bible of all music ...He has stuff in there that nobody else can reproduce !
Here are my top three:
1) Phil Collins, 2) Rush, 3) Dream Theater
How can you beat Phil Collins for all around great musician/composer. What’s even more interesting is that he is a drummer.
Rush for their sheer progressive brilliance and the fact that the band only consists of three musicians. To this day, they are an incredible trio!Dream Theater for the fact that all five members of the band are so rediculously talented and vitruous. Three of the members are arguably the best in the World on the instruments: Mike Portnoy on drums, Jordan Rudess on piano/keys, and John Petrucci on guitar!
Phil Collins…agree… very low profile and very underestimated … Genesis with Peter Gabriel as a great band.. Gabriel is a genius as well..i like his experiments with music.
Rush are one of the most difficult bands to play a cover…lol!! They are great
Dream Theater.. Of course…although not my style..they are amazing.
1. Stevie Wonder 2. Pesnyary 3. Paul Mauriat
