    Buddy Holly?

    Or, even better, Robert Johnson?

    Well I'm more targeting music from the 70's-90's.

    I love Buddy Holly as much as anyone, but to compare him to say like John Lennon or Hendrix is a little bit unfair.

    If you're talking about just a "singer", Sam Cooke.

    If you're talking about a musician, the one I would have given the most to see where his talent would have taken him was Buddy Holly. By far...

    I'm going with none of the above. The beauty of these musicians' premature deaths is that they didn't live long enough to tarnish their own legacy.

    I'll venture that already happened

    1. Kurt Cobain - Not impressed with the hooks from their last CD
    2. Freddy Mercury - Got too campy, too british, not enough rocking as the Sheer Heart Attack years
    3. Jimmy Hendrix - Maybe the sleeper, while he was always a great player his song writing was just starting to blossom
    4. Jim Morrison - Listen to American Prayer to remind yourself what a poor poet Jim could be
    5. John Lennon - Anyone who lets Yoko take up tracks on their records is stealing money from the consumer

    I read a book of Morrison's poems once and had trouble taking The Doors seriously afterward. They were as pretentious as stuff I wrote as a college sophomore.

    I wonder about Lennon, though. I wonder what direction he would have gone.

    I think Sam Cooke would have ended up going pretty political. Buddy Holly would have been interesting.

    Lennon would've been irrelevant. Yoko ruined him.

    1. Are we supposed to judge Cobain from his last efforts, or from what he originally created? (teen spirit, something in the way, heart shaped box, rape me, etc)

    2. He was always campy though. That was his shtick. He was a Broadway esque rocker from the beginning

    4. He was a poor poet perhaps, but his music was still great.

    5. john lennon is still john lennon though and his potential was boundless.
