Gotta be ELVIS!!!

Never wrote a song, performed other standards in a sub-standard manner (Blue Suede Shoes, Blue Moon of Kentucky etc)

Couldn't act but managed to appear in a whole host of dreary second class films.

Just a lucky white boy, right place, right time.

And finished off as a Las Vegas freak show...

I saw the thread title and thought 'Elvis' no question. Completely agree with you.

Blimey...Elvis...superb singer!
Beatles...marvellous stuff mostly apart from the twee McCartneys and the whimsical "Octopus' Garden" type stuff.
Oasis...arrogant @rsehole Liam, Noel = a bit cleverer and a very good songwriter, even if lyrics are naive.
Overrated = Phil Collins, Sting, and their ilk.
Jury's out on U2....

The Smiths?! Aren't you supposed to be a muso of some type BFTB? They don't belong anywhere near that list of innoffensive, mediocre, pop-rock type stuff.

Shame on you BFTB, you're a charlatan.

Rolling Stones, collectively and individually a complete waste of space and resources.

I like the early Elvis, he was a great performer early in his career. The Beatles weren't the great band some claim they were, but pretty decent in my book.

I'd just like to pop in and contribute with 'The Verve'. Always irritated me how one reasonable (if that) album when i was a student and all of a sudden they were one of the all-time greats - at least among the people I knew at the time.
