I can't believe I've made it all the way through this thread and nobody has mentioned Janis Joplin. I always said you could get the same degree of musicality by poking a pig in the ass with a hatpin.

Or Gordon Lightfoot, who has written god knows how many lyrics, but only two tunes; you can tell them apart because one is fast and one is slow.

I won't even go into the list of pop screamers, whiners and heavy breathers who run me up a wall.....

Oh, one other. Billy Bragg. I heard him interviewed on CBC a while back because he had been chosen to do a retrospective on Woody Guthrie << by WG's family, no less. Couldn't believe it. The guy is awful; can't sing, can't play and has the social attitudes of a truly wingeing moron. I think choosing a warmed-over Marxist-Leninist to present the works of WG is insulting both to WG's memory and talent AND to the intelligence of his fans and fans-to-be.

cheers, everybody
