  1. As for Phil Collins, I didn’t know people held him in a high enough light to have to include him on this list 🙂

    As for Eric Clapton, I couldn’t agree more. I never understood the appeal of him, at least in a solo setting. Cream, fine. Derek and the Dominos, fine. Some of this other projects, hit or miss. His solo stuff, not so much 🙂

  2. What about anything by Nirvana? Don’t get me wrong, great band, but god status? cmon Cobain worshipers!?! Several bands are way better than them. The Minutemen, Pere Ubu, Screaming Trees, etc. btw, I agree with the Clapton statement. More of a blues revue than a real blues player, I think.
