Rush.

No conversation about "Great or Overrated" is complete without them.

My take: Great. Incredibly talented musicians. At times it's hard to believe that there are only three of them. Impressive body of work.

That said, they could stand to evolve a bit more lyrically.

The smell of that buttered toast simply talked to Toad, and with no uncertain voice; talked of warm kitchens, of breakfasts on bright frosty mornings, of cosy parlour firesides on winter evenings ... of the purring of contented cats...

Louis Armstrong. Personally, I think he's the greatest jazzman that ever lived. And yes, I've heard a lot of jazz, both live and recorded.

Buddy Holly

Well, no-one else has suggested him, so I will.

In my book, a top tenner. Who knows how good he would have become, but from what we saw, boy could he write good songs. And influential - you bet.

Actually this is a rhetorical question cos everyone knows that The Kinks are one of the greatest bands in history and horribly overlooked in musical history.
