Here's a great example of Buckingham and Nicks blowing the doors off McVie. When Christie quits singing it sounds great. hah

BG, I enjoyed your break down of Fleetwood Mac.

If I list a band, will you do your best to critique their individual members (who is sneaky good, who’s overrated, etc)?

Thanks.

Let’s start with Motley Crue...

Okay...
Mick Mars, average guitarist but solid.
Tommy Lee, Great drummer. Dude is a living breathing metronome.
Vince Neil, Good at what he does when he's clean. Not great.
Nikki Sixx, Great bass player and song writer.

Kind of what I suspected with Crue.

How about Poison?

He has a lovely wife, very down to earth. She's a DIY girl and blogs a lot about it. She could probably buy whatever it was she wanted but she gets off on creating and she's budget minded.

Brett, average singer, but very good in his range.
CC, Highly underrated guitarist.
Rikki, Very good drummer.
Bobby, average at best.

The best songwriter Poison ever had is no longer with the band. Richie Kotzen who was with the band from 91-03.

I didn't realize he'd gotten married. Nikki is lucky to be alive, and probably the most successful comeback ever from a severe heroin addiction.

Yeah, about 4 years ago. Like I said, I knew her from her blog, I didn't know him at all.

I always liked CC’s guitar work, but it didn’t seem like he was talked about much.

How about breaking down Def Leppard?

Heh...
Joe Elliot, probably the worst vocalist out of all of the 80's bands, hands down. That man couldn't carry a tune if it had a handle on it. I can't even begin to imagine how much patience Mutt Lange showed with Joe in the studio. Those had to have been the longest days of Mutt's life.
Phil Collen, excellent rhythm guitarist behind Steve Clark. As a lead guitar, average.
Steve Clark, underrated until the day he died. Then he finally got the recognition he deserved. Tragic...
Rick Allen, great drummer. The dude lost an arm as a drummer and didn't let it stop him. Pretty much says it all.
Rick Savage, nothing special technically, but you can't put a price on his stage presence. He's a performer.

D.L.- great guitars, great drums, overall great sound. Those guys carried Elliott, I agree with you.

Was Joe the songwriter?

No, Steve was. Also, fun fact: Pete Willis is the rhythm you hear on Pyromania. He was fired (for being a drunk) shortly after completing his tracks. Phil Collen played a few leads on the album.

Just watched a couple of tracks from DL’s ‘in the round’ concerts from 1988.

They sounded pretty good live.

Any thoughts, criticisms of these other 80’s bands:

Great White, White Lion, Dokken, Ratt, Warrant, Winger?

What are your general impressions of Stevie Stevens? I’ve always liked his work.

What about The Cult? I don't know what his name is, but I think he had one of the better voices of all those goofy hair bands.
