Name one musician if you could only have the songs

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by NH Ethylene (a host of the General Discussion forum).

that the artist played on to listen to for the rest of your life.

For example for Paul McCartney you would have all the Beatles albums along with the Wings and his solo albums and assorted duets.

For me it would be Eric Clapton

I still consider them a new band. I guess that says something about me. I don't know about the solo work or other bands for one of their members to boost the catalog (Stipe?).

Second choice Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst. If you are a Dylan fan you might want to give his work a listen.

I like his genre, of course, but I've always thought that Eric Clapton was/is the most overrated pop/rock artist of all time.

Never cared much for Billy Joel, either.

I guess I don't find their melodies sufficiently complex.

that I would have taken my life in danger if I listened to in high school or college given my peer group. Ironically my first real exposure to Beatles music was through Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club which I enjoyed but my more sophisticated rocker brother thought I was a doufus.

I have recently cranked up some Bee Gees, and I enjoyed it.

77. Same here

But it's somewhat bittersweet. My girlfriend (now wife) and I went to Jacksonville with my best friend and his girlfriend to see the Firm on their first tour. Magical weekend all around.

On their next tour we all had tickets and we were ready to go but a few weeks before the show my friend died in a motorcycle accident. His girlfriend didn't want to go and she gave us their tickets to sell or whatever but I couldn't handle someone else sitting in his seat so I just basically sat next to an empty chair silently cried through an entire Firm concert.

But I'd still pick Jimmy Page for all the same reasons. And Mike would haunt me poltergeist style if I didn't lol.

David Gilmour has his appeal. Robert Plant is hard to say no to.

Can I be the second person to cheat, and go with Alan Parsons?

162. Agreed. It's Paul McCartney, especially if I get The Beatles too.

For the past 54 years no artist has more of an impact on my life than Paul McCartney alone and with The Beatles. A big downside to becoming a senior citizen is that you experience the loss of so many people who have been important and meaningful to your life and for me one of them is Paul McCartney who is 10 years older than me but someone who I have "known" and enjoyed since I was 11 and if I were to outlive him his death would be a great loss to me.
(Oh, and I've used that John Greenleaf Whittier quote many times myself.)

They also have had several guests join them, such as Wynton Marsallis, Carlos Santana, Janis Joplin, John Fogerty... They even had Jake and Elwood open for them at the closing of Winterland.

100. Good choice...I'd select Hal Blaine...

"Twenty of my favorite drummers were all Earl Palmer."

The same could be said about Hal, who has played on upwards of 6000 songs.

He also played on seven total Grammy Records of the Year, six of them consecutively: 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1976.

And, like Earl, Hal was one of the first session players to be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame (in 2000).

136. Good choice, too; Palmer blazed the trail, Blaine paved it

Hall did a great job compiling his song list, but sadly Palmer didn't do as well with his list because he played for so many, many artists across so many genres.

Hal was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Palmer's request, and he would agree Earl Palmer was the most recorded drummer in history.

As a side note, I've seen countless videos of Hal Blaine and Earl Palmer and came to the conclusion that Hal Blaine was a huge self promoter while Earl Palmer was much more laid back and reserved.

Fat Bob gets you the Cure and some of the best of Siouxsie and the Banshees.

Mozza gets you The Smiths and his solo catalogue.

Coltrane gets you a host of stuff, from his early sideman gigs to his work with Miles Davis and of course his amazing work as a leader.

I’d also want to consider David Tibet (Current93, Death in June, Nurse With Wound, PsychicTV, 23Skidoo, etc.) and Amanda Fucking Palmer (solo, Dresden Dolls, tons more).

160. Tom Petty.

Because I’d get his solo stuff, the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch and the Traveling Wilbury’s in the bargain. Took my 12 year old son down to Red Rocks to see Tom last summer...felt a little guilty hijacking him out of school to do it but SO happy I did in hindsight. Amazing concert and wonderful memory with my kiddo.

170. I appreciate Piaf, but with one pick, it would be Brel in French.

An amazing voice and an incredible lyricist.

177. This thread reads like a hall of fame..

I'm having trouble choosing one, so I'm gonna cheat and go with Stevie Nix and John Fogerty.

178. Very tough question

 

For the rest of my life . . .

that makes it even tougher. One of my problems is I don't like ANYONE's playbook

I'm going to name some people who haven't been named, but I'll also say Simon and Garfunkel and Paul McCartney are big with me. Leonard Cohen too.

Kris Kristofferson
Bruce Springsteen
Roy Orbison
Sam Cooke
Ben E. King
Elvis
Hank Williams
Roger Whitaker

I'm editing this to add Jay Black (Jay and the Americans). Sooooo many groups I'd love to add. Here's one person to stand in for all the rest -- the Drifters, Everly Brothers, Righteous Brothers, on and on.

180. Yes, tough question it is. I'd have to say Richard Thompson though.

That way I'd get some Fairport Convention AND Sandy Denny, RIP. Perhaps Maddy Prior for the Steeleye Span aspect. This side of the pond, probably Neil Young/David Crosby for the contributions and mashups of CSN/CSNY/Byrds/Buffalo Springfield, etc. Yes indeed, tough question.
