Tuesday Tunes - 5/25/10

Here's another post for my poor, neglected blog.  From Music Memoirs, of course:

Who are your favorites:

Guitarist:  David Gilmour (from Pink Floyd).  His tone is simply amazing and so emotional.
Drummer:  Mitch Mitchell (from Jimi Hendrix Experience).  Not as crazy as Moon, but much more talented.
Bassist:  Paul McCartney. 
Vocalist (Male and Female):  Male -- Jeff Buckley and Roy Orbison.  Female -- Triona Ni Dhomhnaill.
Songwriter: Again, Paul McCartney.  Anyone can write complex songs.  Writing simple songs that say a whole lot in as few words as possible takes quite a bit of skill.  As Strunk and White say -- "Omit needless words."  Paul can do that.

Good choices. I almost selected Paul McCartney as my favorite bassist, but I went in a different direction.
