Top Ten Best Songwriting Partnerships In Rock and Metal


The Top TenXW

1John Lennon/Paul McCartney

The awesome partnership of everyone's favourite 60's rock band. I feel sorry for George Harrison though. - IronSabbathPriest

2Mick Jagger/Keith Richards

Both Still going strong today. - IronSabbathPriest

3Angus Young/Malcolm Young

I fear it might only be Angus now... - IronSabbathPriest

4Jimmy Page/Robert Plant

Wrote a lot of Zeppelin's songs together. - IronSabbathPriest

5Jeff Hanneman/Kerry King

Although they occasionally wrote separately, they both wrote the awesome Raining Blood! - IronSabbathPriest

6Don Henley/Glenn Frey
7Hansi KÜRSCH / André Olbrich

They've been writing together for 30 years and they wrote great songs. They are perfectionists.
Blind Guardian rules.
André focuses on music and Hansi on lyrics.
André comes up with some general idea (melody, riff), other members contribute and then Hansi arranges everything.
Hansi wrote both music and lyrics only for their first 2-3 albums. - Metal_Treasure

8Dio/Ritchie Blackmore
9Jim Morrison/Robbie Kreiger

Because Jim was such a charismatic, flamboyant, person, the other members of The Doors tend to get ignored. Such a shame. - PetSounds

Writing credits usually just listed as "The Doors".
