The most Overrated musician I know. - hatcher234

She does not have original style of singing. All she does is copy other pop singers like celine dion, or regine velasquues and I hate it that she is being promoted as the next shron cuneta in the Philippines... So OVERRATED.. HATE THIS GIRL.

I will give him Maggie May and Reason to Believe are great songs but the rest of stuff is white trash.

He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

Inarguably one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time. Cream is absolutely amazing. So, why is he making weepy ballads? He should stick to doing what he's best at: rocking. - TheAI

Even Though He Was A Great Guitarist, His Style Is Oh...
Too Repetitive...

What the hell!? He is amazing! He has one of the most extensive and complete musical careers of all time, playing from Blues to Rock Pop!
Overrated? Not at all
Good? A lot

Don't understand how he can write or perform with his head buried in his ass

The guy just needs to quit already!

He should be number one on this list. He has zero song writing ability. His song writing are all cliches! He is an awful singer. This is clearly exposed when he gets on stage to do tributes. He's always so overmatched by the other legens on state. His voice is just awful

I never, ever understood why this guy was so well liked. As another commenter has said, his music is rife with clichés and he does not do anything original that anyone else hasn't already done. For a time, he was viewed as being "alternative" (70's and early 80's), and I could never figure that one out.

89 The Rev The Rev James Owen Sullivan (February 9th, 1981 - December 28th 2009), better known by his stage name "The Rev" (Short for "The Reverend Tholomew Plague") was an American musician, singer and songwriter, best known as the former drummer, backing vocalist and co-founder of the American heavy metal band Avenged ...read more.

Overrated and overplayed!

It's at least Summer that sounds boring and like plain modern pop music. Like Drake, he is nice to talk to.
