Journal Pinball Wizard's Journal: The full list(Blender's 50 worst artists) 6

For those who read the article on yahoo today, and then followed the link to Blender's site only to find the bottom ten, rather than the full 50 worst artists of all time.

Of course, Kenny G and Michael Bolton are obvious. But ELP at #2?! C'mon, get real. Keith Emerson was the greatest keyboardist ever - not only an incredible live performer, but the only musician ever to play with both Jimi Hendrix and the London Symphony Orchestra. He took compositions by Ginastera and Holst and made them better(in fact Ginastera said so himself.) He was the pioneering synthesist, recording the first ever synthesizer solo(Lucky Man) not to mention working with Bob Moog himself.

Anyhoo, here's the list. Post your rants below.

  • This is really a rant with no real content, so you don't have to even bother reading it :)

    Emerson, Lake and Palmer? Mick Jagger? Creed? Live? The Doors? Blind Melon? Rick Wakeman?!?!?!?! Goo Goo Dolls? Come on, who was smoking what when they made this list cause I don't even think crack explains Wakeman and ELP. Most of the formentioned bands have some great songs, so I wouldn't consider them the worst ever. When a band has no good songs at all, then I could see it going on the worst ever list, and Wakema
  • 1. Insane Clown Posse - I'm still wondering what inept and deaf music executive actually signed these guys and gave them studio time.

    2. Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Umm, obviously whoever compiled this list never owned a stereo.
    Replacement: Dave Koz - While we're rippin' on Mr. Kenny G, we need to throw in Dave Koz. Another in the group that claimed to be a "jazz musician," but really wouldn't know jazz if it sat on his face.

    3. Michael Bolton - Not #1? This guy still thinks he has "soul." And the whole
    • 1. Insane Clown Posse - I'm still wondering what inept and deaf music executive actually signed these guys and gave them studio time.

      I'm sure it was the same moron who thought that a .com didn't need a business plan. I can forgive this, it was the roaring '90s.

      8. Vanilla Ice - "Drop the zero and get wit da hero." Need anything more be said about this guy?

      Oh, a lot more phrases come to mind. "What's it like having a Ronnie" or something stupid like that. Now he's all punk....*cough* poser *cough*.

Put no trust in cryptic comments.
