    Favorite musician not known to the general public

    Who's your favorite musician, not known to a lot of the general public?

    Mine is Mike Portnoy, drummer for Transatlantic and Dream Theater.

    Well as far as singers goes - Leah Salonga - Filipina singer was the original "Kim" in the Broadway Musical "Miss Saigon" She is a beautiful lady with a beautiful voice.

    Also a buddy of mine is really into Paul Westerberg - He is pretty well known but not in a "pop" way.

    In terms of country music singer song/writer Skip Ewing


    In terms of songs.... I really like alot of the stuff from the soprano soundtrack...one song from season 5 'Your'e Wrapped in My Memories like Chains"

    Not sure of the Artist but really like the song.

    Paul Westerberg is great, but he is acutally pretty well known. Anyone heard of James McMurtrey?(sp?) He is really good, has some really great songs.

    Re: Favorite musician not known to the general public

    And there is a good reason why the general public doesn't want to know these characters RL.

    One I have always liked, and is known in Chrstian circles, but not so much by the general public, is guitarist Phil Keaggy. Hendrix called him the greastest acoustic gutiarist he had ever heard. That's a complement. And especially to a guy who is missing fingers on one hand. He started out with the band Glass Harp. I still have his fisrt solo album "What a Day".

    Re: Favorite musician not known to the general public

    This goes back a few years, but.....

    I remember seeing Stevie Ray Vaughan on SNL in 1986 and I was mezmerized. But, of course, he never had any songs that played on Top-40 radio, so he was virtually unknown to the masses and even the teenage aspiring guitarists like myself at the time.

    From that time until his death four-and-a-half years later, I would force my friends to listen to him and I would force them to agree that SRV was placed here by divine intervention.

    Of course, after his death, everyone suddenly claimed he or she had enjoyed SRV for many years.

    you'd think that. but unless a person is heavily into rock and metal or a guitar player, it would seem they have no idea who he is.

    as part of my sociology research paper, i did a couple of tests. one of which was to ask 50 people who went to last year's OzzFest to answer the following questions:

    1. Name 5 bands from the show not called, Black Sabbath, Slipknot, or Judas Priest.
    42 of the 50 did.

    2. Name one musician from the show other than Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest of Slipknot.
    33 of the 50 did.

    3. Name a member of Ozzy Osbourne's band (not Black Sabbath).
    20 of the 50 did.

    I was going to mention Phil Keaggy as well...great guitarist but the complement from Hendrix never happened...it is a popular folk story but again, it never happened...it has also been reported that Clapton said the same thing...which he did not.

    but...LISTEN....PHIL ROCKS!!!
