Top 10 Best Lyricists of All TimeMarcopwnzatdrums
The Contenders: Page 10
Tragically underrated on this list! Should be up there with Springsteen!
How come nobody talk about that great artist, it always amazed me. So deep, so full of heart, an amazing guitarist, an amazing songwriter, every chris's songs could be hits, he was such a great melodist, one of the greatest for sure.
Read them and make your own decision but it is clear he is/was way ahead of anybody on the list. Should be number 1 by a mile.
Very underrated lyricist, Yes I'm talking about the bassist for "Motley Crue". Believe it or not, He's the soul lyricist for Motley. The only thing better than his bass playing is his lyrics, yes sometimes Tommy, Mick, and Vince help write a song, But every song I know of Sixx was involved in the lyric writing process.
Izzy Stradlin wrote a bunch of lyrics for Gn'R, Usually the whole band sits down and writes together, but Izzy And Axl Do most of the writing, That I know of. Although I believe that Axl is a great lyricist, Izzy deserves to be mentioned too. (I'm pretty sure he wrote "Patience")
None of these can touch Mark Smith.
"saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand"...do opening lines get any better than that?
