Subject: RE: Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'?
Life is too short to waste time on this sort of nonsense. "Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow ..." you know the rest.

Praising musicians whom you believe to be unjustly ignored or under-rated may serve some useful purpose. But denigrating artists whom you regard as over-rated is just a roundabout way of boasting about how superior your own taste is to that of the common herd.

Why not just enjoy your favourite music - as player,singer,dancer or listener - and leave categorising and classifying to the librarians, who at least get paid for doing it.
