    What is the best singer-guitarist duo of all time?

    Gotta think it's Page and Plant (leaving out the Beatles since they all played, wrote and sang). Maybe all the plagiarism issues diminish them a bit though.

    Daltrey-Townshend
    Tyler-Perry
    Bono-Edge
    Hetfield-Hammett
    Jagger-Richards (though I'm not a big Stones guy)
    Rose-Slash
    Osborne-Iommi (or Rhoads or Wylde)
    Brian Johnson-Angus Young
    Mercury-May
    Roth-Van Halen

    My faves:

    Daltry. Townsend.
    Plant. Page.
    Bono. Edge.

    May is probably the most unheralded.

    Hate the Stones. Donít want to give them any props.

    The Edge brings me near to tears. I think thereís a lot of nostalgia wrapped up in it from War to Joshua Tree. I donít follow Bonoís persona which I guess annoys ppl.

    well U2 sucks in general, but I appreciate the Edge immensely. He is extremely talented, and I can't at least deny Bono's vocals have millions of fans. U2 has the highest selling tour ever, obviously they have a lot of fans..

    U2 is basically the Beatles or Stones of my generation and yet I can't get through more than 2 or 3 songs without zoning out and getting incredibly bored. Respect the talent, but they're so meh to me.

    I think the Beatles are amazingly talented, original, and one of the best bands ever.

    I agree though, pairing them with the Rolling Stones. Clearly they have zillions of fans, but I ain't one of them really...

    The highest grossing tours? U2, and Rolling Stones, #1 and 2 haha.

    I really don't get it. U2, Stones and Springsteen are some of the most popular artists of all time and I can't get into any of them (although I recently came around to some older Springsteen stuff). I don't even get how the Stones are constantly mentioned in the same breath as the Beatles, much less contend with them. Dead, Allman Bros, Zeppelin or Sabbath easily smash the Stones as well IMO.

    And U2.....I'm surrounded by fellow 80s kids telling me they're the band of my generation, but Pearl Jam are faaaaaaaaaar better IMO.

    I attribute much of their success to overseas. Only way it can be explained

    I grew up in the 80's too. Give me Michael Jackson/Madonna/Chili Peppers/Beastie Boys anyday over U2
