Definitely Coldplay. They're the "Grey's Anatomy" of bands.

All good Rock & Roll is a "rip off" of blues music. Stone are not significantly over rated, IMO. They were actually at their best doing straight up blues. I loved their cover of Fancy Man Blues, for example. Not big airplay, but good.

I'm not into that sort of thing. I'd just go listen to some Blues. They seems to be celebrated a lot for people who are being unoriginal.

WTF? Did you just fall off the turnip truck or something? How in the world does a person live their life and only hear one Stones song???

Okay: Clapton and Billy Joel used to be SO MUCH BETTER. Derek and the Dominos was my favorite album for a long long long time, and Billy Joel - well, the 90's were his Waterloo, and he's never recovered.

You seem like quite an expert on them for someone that's only heard one song. Congratulations.

EDIT: Sorry, I was mistaken. Mick wrote Fancy Man Blues. I thought it was a cover.

I don't how saying they are being unoriginal means I'm coming off as an expert, what you described = unoriginal. But I suppose I am also prejudice, thus ranked them with out much info.

anyone been to Downtown Disney in Anaheim? there is this (or used to be, i dont know, havent been there in awhile) 'violinist' -violin player, rather, who plays these mainstream classical pieces along with the actual soundtrack from a cd accompanying him in the background.

this guy plays like only 6 pieces and repeats over and over again and the actual 'skill'? of his playing is drowned out by the soundtrack playing in the background. plus he wears the same clothes every single day: a white linen shirt and baggy black pants that are completey stretched out and homely looking.

but he conjures up tons of people watching him and buying his cd (of what? him playing his violin along an already orchestrated melody in the background?)

It's your anger toward this guy that is most hilarious. I'd say if he's celling CD's at Downtown Disney, he's accurately rated as an artist.

BTW, I've been to DTD many times....I think I know who you're talking about, which makes it all the more funny.

Dude, are you trying to be stupid? You can look at stats. Jordan was better in every category than say Stacey Augmon (except for probably steals), showing he had more talent and was thus better. Is there a subjective element to determining the best athlete yes. But there is a reason Quinton McCraken isn't considered to be in the same echelon as Ted Williams. Uh no one is doubting that people are idiots and I don't think anyone is claiming otherwise. Because people are idiots is why good artists are put on a pedestal of greatness (ex: Bob Marley) and thus, overrated. Idiocy begets overrated-ness.
