    I've often thought that if you're talking about someone who is a solo writer, meaning they write both the music and the lyrics, Pete Townshend may be the best of all time.

    Also

    Lennon/McCartney
    Jagger/Richards
    Brian Wilson
    Chuck Berry/Johnny Johnson
    Van Halen

    Glenn Matlock???

    You are right of course. Glenn was involved in much more of the writing than Sid was. That's what I get for working on no sleep
