It seems to me that a lot of artists are better as quality side-men and song-writers than solo performers. They may not like being on stage, may respond well to the structure of other musicians their equal, or the creativity bank over-drawn. When I hear Bob Dylan’s songs performed by others, his talent shines through. I prefer Eric Clapton as a star soloist with others, and Phil Collins’s drum contributions to other bands were better than his work in post-Gabriel Genesis. Is this a minority view?
