    It's a shame drugs ended his music career so early

    I think that Neil Fallon of Clutch is an underrated showman and lyricist. I f'n love this guy's lyrics. Genius in my useless opinion.

    Just saw Clutch w/Melvins, Fantomas, Primus, and Tool a few weeks ago. Clutch was the band I was least familiar with. Enjoyable set though.

    Nice. That's a killer lineup. That must have been a festival???

    I'll be seeing Clutch for the 11th time on Thursday...with Primus. Can't wait.

    Wasn't technically a festival. Just a one off finale for the most recent Tool tour. Some of the openers were jokingly calling it Tool Fest '17. 60,000+ showed up, so maybe they'll turn it in to a yearly thing.

    I have just visited concert of Bob Dillan. I was taken aback by him voice and show that was made. It was an experience of a life-time. You can watch it online there

    I'm going to throw both Mike Patton and Buzz Osborne in to the mix (I may have already but don't feel like reading through the thread again).

    Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaues

    you might want to appear tough, but you know deep inside ABBA is great.

    I think we need to truly think of the term genius. Many of these people listed are legends no doubt, but calling them geniuses is tough for me.

    What is the criteria or questions should we ask ourselves?

    Is do they have the ability to play multiple instruments at a top notch level being one?

    How about write classic song after song consistently?

    What have they done that's changed the way music is recorded or played?

    Have they brought in anything new on an instrument level that has changed things such as create & develop the guitar tremolo bar or amp distortion?

    How about straight technical ability?

    Do they have a sound you can say is totally their own?

    Did they inspire an entire generation?

    Does their offerings stand the test of time?

    Is what they've done been done better by others?

    What else do you think?

    Ex: I love the Sex Pistols. They are legends that turned the entire industry and opinions on what is good upside down. They have inspired two generations now. They are legends no doubt, but in no way would I call them geniuses.

    We're one musical genius less after Walter Becker, guitarist, bassist and co-founder of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted band Steely Dan, died Sunday at the age of 67.

    One of my personal favorite bands, their music transcended traditional American popular and rock music while infusing many different genres to achieve their unique sound and style.

    Patton is one of the most versatile and talented singers in rock music, in my opinion.
