After reading an article on Yahoo by the same title(Artist...away) I thought it might be interesting to see what artists people feel should just disappear.

My vote goes to Kanye Pest, err West. That guy has enough hot air to fill a Hindenburgh.

After hearing the most god-awful cover of Tom Petty's Free Falling, I think this is appropriate:



You're a helluva guitar player, John, but your music needs to grow a pair.

I love the Who. They are legendary, and one of my top 5 groups of all time. But their last CD really bummed me out. They hadn't done a new album since It's Hard, in 1982. Then they release Endless Wire in 2006, and I can't listen to it because Roger Daltrey's voice is gone. Just sad to hear it crack and strain and not have any power at all.

I could see them going on after the death of Keith Moon. They were in their thirties - still had some juice in the tank. But after John Entwhistle died in 2002, I'd have hung it up, at least as "The Who". Now they're like that ballplayer who doesn't know when to retire, who plays a season or two where he embarrasses himself and messes up his stats and legacy.

I googled "endless wire" and listened to the sound tracks. I agree, it is rather difficult to listen to. I like the Who too and "The Who Sell Out", from 1967 was always my favorite.

Hmmm, I think it's time the Stones retired as well. Honestly, with the exception of a couple of songs, imo they haven't done anything noteworthy since...Oh...maybe 1975(Made in the Shade). Now they're just going through the motions and watching Mick mumbling through their classic songs is brutal.

Miley Cyrus anyone?

Pick a rap artist. Any rap artist. With exception to a very very few songs, this genre as a whole does nothing for me.

How is it that some artists like Muddy Waters and Leonard Cohen got the juice until the day they drop and so many others just fade?

A recent "artist" I want to go away before "he" even starts is Adam Lambert.

I also don't want to hear anything more from Metallica. They have been a joke for the past decade.

Although I like Aerosmith a lot, I hope they hang it up sometime soon.

Also, I hope we get through this "gen" of music right now. It's just plain terrible.

What do you mean, this "gen"? There's such a huge variety of artists out there -- many of whom are putting out excellent music -- that I'm pretty sure there must be something out there for everyone.
