Don't agree with you about Hugo. He's a very good one. The one I really can't stand is Richard Marx!!! Too much overrated!!!

Well, yeah he was, but...... who the hell has heard from Richard Marx since 1990??


Michael Sweet is a great singer, but unique? Dennis De Young might disagree with that. I don't know how many times somebody asked me if I was listening to Styx back when the first couple of Stryper albums came out.

Anyone who slams Slash and Joe Perry and then defends ANY member of Survivor, kings of 80's cheese...... doesn't even deserve the effort of a response to something so entirely laughable. Granted, Guns N Roses disintegrated and Aerosmith of the last 10 years is every bit as bad as Survivor, but you can't discount what these guys did in their prime.

Now my choice for over-rated.....

Ratt - had one good album

Poison - Only bought the album because I thought they were girls

Cinderella - Tom's Janis Joplin impression on the "Stairway to Heaven/Highway to Hell" charity album was much better than the Brian Johnson impression he used on their own albums.

Def Leppard - Yeah I give them credit for surviving after losing 2 1/2 of their original members, but they keep doing the same album over and over again, and will never top "High and Dry" in my opinion.

Kiss - Yeah I loved em when I was 12, but I saw that "opening night" show on VH 1. Talk about embarassing! Peter Criss could barely hit the drums, Paul Stanley was singing ridicuolously off key and out of time, and Gene and Ace's background grunts were completely pathetic.

The Who - from 1968 to 1973, nobody could touch these guys. But when Keith Moon died in 1978, he took the power of the band with him. The 1982 farewell tour should have remained just that. Instead we got the 1989, 1994, 1998, and 2000 tours. Hope I die before I get old? NOT!
