I love that Bowie covered “I Know Ir’s Gonna Happen Someday.” ❤ But I haven’t given this record a shot (I will, though). I don’t hate the record but I’m glad I bought it with a gift card and not my own money (and it hasn’t affected my respect for Bowie). You make a fine point, re: guitar players thinking they are defining members of the band. A few exceptions come to mind (David Gilmour) but for the most part, yeah. (And I know that there are people who would argue against David’s importance in Pink Floyd) Has there been a guitarist that branched off ever and made an awesome record?
I’d agree with the Floyd analysis if we’re talking about Syd Barret leaving and the band continuing to be great and arguably even better, but the last thing I want to listen to is Pink Floyd after Roger Waters left, at least not their studio albums.
I was thinking about guitarists who managed to split off from the lead singers that made them famous and managed to continue to make music on par or better and the first one that came to mind was AC/DC, but I also think it’s a little different when a lead singer dies than when a band breaks up. There is a greater obligation to the replacement singer to honor the style and influence of the original. Where as replacement front men after the original has simply left tend to want to carve out their own identity in opposition to their predecessor.
I think we have to give George Harrison acknowledgement, as well as a few others, but tbh I’m having a harder time than I’d imagined thinking of any. There are some folks that might seem to fit at first, like Neil Young, but then when I dig into it, the only reason he didn’t sing lead on the first Buffalo Springfield album was the producers thought his voice was “too weird.”
I feel like it would need to be an ongoing list. We can start with:
- George Harrison
- Joan Jett
- idk, that could be the whole list.
hello? Slash has done pretty well.
