Re: Who’s The Greatest Manc Musician?

Morrissey is a contender and would have been an option in the poll if he been able to play an instrument.

Curtis and Smith are good but could never be the greatest.

Ian Brown in my taste, but, I always thought he was a cockney

Morrissey.

Roswell, you don't have to 'play an instrument' to be a musician, you have to be able to make music - that includes singing (mind you with Morrissey, that's debatable... )

What VO2Max said!! Apart from the Morrissey bit

I'd vote for Badly Drawn Boy or Guy Garvey (Elbow)
If it's purely a "musician" you want - it can only be Johhny Marr


...Noel Gallagher, are you being serious!!!! I'd rather listen to Frank Sidebottom

Chose Ashcroft.

Noel Gallagher might be a bit if a dick but he has written some great songs.

Noel Gallagher by streets, but he's not what I'd term "great" by any stretch of the imagination.

Can't stand Morrissey.

You never know, the feeling could be mutual.

I'm assuming you have never met the man.

Ditto and I couldn't care less.

As regards your assumption, you are correct and what I have seen via the media is quite enough.

John Squire.

I like Ian Brown too, but I don't think he is a great singer.

I am not a fan of Morrissey, in fact I can't stand listening to his music, it really grates.

Re: Who’s The Greatest Manc Musician?

I could have said that it was depressing and he can only "sing" 4 chords, but I think the word "Sing" may be the wrong word.

Ian Brown. No contest. Brilliant in the Roses and brilliant as a solo artist! A favourite with Mrs ML as well.
