Keith Moon is a legend because he played with a legendary band called "The Who" ? Now there is "The Guess Who" and guess what I had to look up Garry Peterson. So it must be more than just being the drummer in a successful band huh?
Give them real jobs, let them rank themselves amongst their coworkers. This crap will stop real fast. Once they realize the only thing they are good at making are lists that dont matter, they will move on. There is going to be a lot of tears, whining, and disappointment. It's good for personal growth. Now pull up your pants, comb your hair, and do something productive for once.Current youtube'er norms demand that participants quantify and rank everything. It's a societal problem that we're currently looking into a solution for.
I concur that The Who as a whole package is important, but at the same time, the reason they were playing anywhere is because of the songs being written. It’s the same with every drummer: no music, no playing.Agreed. But if it weren't for Moon's playing, many of us—even hardcore music fans like us, and certainly the larger population—wouldn't have heard those songs; his playing (and Entwhistle's) was absolutely integral to their success, both artistic and commercial. (Strange as it is to those of who raised on classic rock and AOR, the Who were never the sales behemoths of the Beatles or even the Rolling Stones, never having a #1 song or LP, and only a single Top 10 single—Moon's playing [and perhaps his off-stage behavior] is absolutely every bit as big a reason for the Who's fame in the 60s and 70s as Townshend's amazing songs.)
This is a problem that has plagued mankind since the dawn of time. We still label, rank, and pool people based on semantics and society does not benefit from it at all. Let me know if you manage to find a solution, because we'd like you to tackle homelessness and world peace after that.Current youtube'er norms demand that participants quantify and rank everything.
