    The Top 10 Most Overlooked Band Members

    http://www.spike.com/blog/top-10-most/74754
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    I like the list. And Geezer Butler has some of the most fun bass lines to play of anybody.

    Most bass players do get the shaft recognition wise, and I am glad someone else brought up that the Ozz-man did not write all those great lyrics.

    Ozzy's writing contributions have been rumored to be minimal in both Sabbath and his solo work for a long time now.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    And John Paul Jones does not get anywhere NEAR the credit he deserves.

    George Harrison as well.

    not a bad list. Georgie definitely belongs there but so does Ringo. John and Paul are always the first ones, then supposedly knowledgeable music nerds throw out George but Ringo was the true unsung hero of that group. His easy going demeanour, his versatility and and willingness and ability to explore the depths of the other three's creativity and ambition made him an invaluable player. The Beatles don't get where they got without him.

    Mike Anthony, Butler, Jones and Weymouth are definitely four veryoverlooked bass players but we also need to mention John Deacon from Queen.

    As far as Manzerek, if he's on the list then densmore and krieger definitely need to be on there. If anything he gets more run than the other two. The doors are another group that absolutely needed those specific people in order to accomplish what they did.

    I would also include Tico Torres from Bon Jovi, Roger Taylor from Queen, Mick Mars from Motley Crue...there are obviously plenty of others but those come immediately to mind.

    Finally a "list" that I can largely agree with. Without question John Paul Jones had to be #1 and before I even opened the link he was the first name that popped into my head.
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Obviously that's why he deserves to be the best known one in the band Kimmie, yeah

    I reckon Mick has his fair share of fans. Certainly The Dirt made him most readers' favourite member, and he's always been the one Tommy Lee cited as coolest which must have helped. And his solo spot in their gigs is one of the few memorable ones. Dead on about Tico though.

    Malcolm Young
    For real? You're saying MALCOLM is the most overlooked member of AC/DC? Are you aware of the guys with a bass and a drumkit? THEY are the forgotten ones.

    For my money if I had to pick anyone, Bob Daisley for his work with Ozzy. Ozzy would be NOTHING without that man and too few people know it. After that, the rhythm sections of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream....particularly Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell is one of my all time favourite drummers.

    Izzy Stradlin in GN'R. If Slash and Axl made up, most people would be happy with the band. Frankly, I think if Izzy did a set of GN'R tunes it'd be more authentic and interesting than anything either of the other two could pull off. And thus, Gilby Clarke too....very good but what little reputation he achieved ruined by being Izzy's replacement. The other GN'R guy I'd say is chronically forgotten is Matt Sorum. People go on and on about the classic line-up who did Appetite and Matt's ten times the player Steven Adler could ever be.

    Nicko McBrain in Iron Maiden the one I feel most overlooked simply because his role in every song he ever plays with the band is so key...the band play with two lead guitars and the bass is often compared more to an acoustic guitar in style - often it's just Nicko holding down the rhythm. And the fact he plays with a single pedal bass....

    Rick Dufay saved Aerosmith and made them into Aerosmith again.

    Blaze Bayley suffered the problem of replacing Bruce Dickinson in Iron Maiden. If Bruce hadn't gotten there first, Blaze would be a certified legend now.

    I think Mike's really not contributed nearly as much to Van Halen as any of those guys did to their respective bands.

    Humor, compadre. Mere humor.

    Malcolm IS the funniest, though. He just stands there and bobs his head. For over thirty years. Funny!

    I confess, I have overlooked Nicko McBrain.

    Lol....Elfoid, darlin, I know nothing about makin music, bands, or whatnot, but that's why I like him......What's inside a person's heart and how they carry themselves are what I notice about everyone. You gotta be a good person for me to like you. THOSE things are what impresses me......Forgive me, I'm a blonde female, what else would you expect?
