Best all around musician alive today?
Thoughts on him and his music in general(Both Rock and Country)
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
No idea who that is
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
Never heard of him.
Front man for Staind who broke off and Is doing a southern rock/country solo thing.
He's pretty good and I do like Staind but I wouldn't say anywhere close to the best.
I always thought he was a good talent. The best? Debatable. I would say no.
John foggerty is better
Ill link some of his stuff from staind and his solo stuff in a little bit.
What do y'all think makes someone a top tier musician? For me it's sounding just as good or better live as in a studio, writing your own songs, living the songs you write, and playing some sort of instrument well. Of course be at the top level at nearly all of those
As far as singing I would say that he is just as good, but all around musician I give it to Lewis, CCR is my favorite band of all time as well lol.
Sounding as good live as in the studio, voice, writing songs, instrumental talent. Living the songs? Meh. Axl Rose is one of the best musicians in history, and he wasn't close to being a role model.
When it comes to Metalcore, Matt Tuck is far ahead of the game right now. His singing is top notch, his screams are elite, he can strum the guitar in either lead or rhythm roles, he writes some of BFMV's songs, but not all. That is normal for a band. Their new album releases in February and I'm pumped.
For females, There are some really talented girls in the rock scene. Lzzy Hale, Cristina Scabbia.... Can't overlook Carrie Underwood when it comes to pure power of the voice. She kills it. She is ultra talented.

All good points +1. I am not familiar with those artists, but usually people in that genre are really talented.
And by living the songs I don't mean good role models, but giving legitimacy to their songs through personal experiences unlike some artists who just throw crap together
Careful, he's a huge gun lover.
So am I lol
I recommend you to download all 3 Bullet for my Valentine albums. If you like a hard rock, but not "too" hard, you will love what they bring.
Scream, Aim, Fire
Those are in order. Their 4th album releases in February. A few songs to get you started from the first album would be Tears Don't Fall, All These Things, Suffocating Under Words of Sorrow. The entire album is great, and so are the other two. I'm actually listening to the Scream, Aim, Fire album right now.
Thanks for the recommendation, I will check them out once a Christmas Story is over.
I have seen staind in concert 5 times. I was within 10 foot of them when they made the video for the song outside in biloxi and to be honest they ain't even top 3 in concert that i have seen. Linkin park is the best band i have ever seen in concert followed by creed and korn. Yes i said creed. It was before they went all pop. They put on a really good show. Korn was awesome. I seen them 4 times none later than 2005. Also seen rage against the machine and they were bad ass too
To each their own. I mean more of Lewis as an individual and talent than ability to put on a show though
Lil Wayne is the best. Nicki Minaj at a close second, with Drake rounding third
"Just gotta keep balling out"
Sadly, there are people that really think this.
I like Aaron Lewis. I like that style of singing myself. Not knocking him at all. He is a very good song writer and composer of music. I just think there is so many people out there that are great at what they do its really hard to say any 1 person is the best
I'm a fan of Lzzy Hale. Girls got some fire behind here. Not bad on the eyes either for a rock chick.
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
Well said, +1
I will add "Bittersweet Memories" to that list. If you're in to that type of rock I recommend checking out Stereoside. "So Long" is pretty intense.

Bittersweet Memories is a little on the soft side for BFMV. I like their softer stuff, but they can rock with the best of them. I thought this was impressive. After The Poison album, Matt Tuck had surgery to fix his vocals. The very next album, he releases "Waking The Demon", and was doing something with his voice that I didn't think he would ever be able to do again.
The video for waking the demon by Bullet for my Valentine
Here is osme of his stuff. First video is form his latest album.
Second video, with the band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRdIT0ZT-EQ
Live video, using footage from the road and studio, for Aaron Lewis' new single "Forever", from the upcoming full-length album "The Road" available online and in stores Nov. 13. Official video coming soon.

Joe bonamassa says hi.
Jack White is a genius. He's a complete prick at times, but a genius nonetheless.
