Where's Stephanie Germanotta? (since you decided to use their real names presumably because it sounds so impressive)

Well, we have no class and we can't even find words that rhyme... V.D.F.!

(I also wonder... Furnier? Sounds suspiciously  like... not English...)

As much as I love Bowie, I'll always have a soft spot for the Coop. Don't really care for the other two.

The albums that Elton John recorded between 1969 and 1975 are among the best popular music ever put on record. He really touched the Beatles level of excellence with those albums, with a help from Bernie Taupin, of course.

Bowie easily, then John with Cooper a long way back and as for Prince he doesn't even register on my radar, to me he's nothing
You must be joking.....Take a running jump......

I actually place each artist on the same level (pretty damn great). Each had their peaks. I'd actually place Honky Chateau, Da Da, Purple Rain, and Ziggy Stardust all on the same level. Which is to say 5 star. I gotta give the slight nod to Elton, though, because of course his slew of albums from 1970 to around 1976 were ear-popping to me. Although David had his Berlin and Prince had Purp and Sign and Coop had from School's out to Welcome and all that sort. Love all four artists, really.
He gave her his town house and his racing horses. Each meal she ate was a dozen courses. She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes. She sat around and counted them all a million times.

Um, David Bowie and Prince are not gay...
 
David Bowie will always win in my heart even though I don't care much for any of their music (I had no idea people seriously listened to Alice Cooper...) because of Labyrinth, which is easily the greatest documentary of all time.

I think that Jones is the most balanced combination of an artist, an entertainer and an innovator. That's why I voted for him. Most of his earlier works are excellent.
 
Dwight is rather entertaining and has some bright moments.
 
Nelson is probably the most innovative of these four, but I have some problems with his output in the sphere of appreciation.
 
I am not a fan of Furnier's horror-oriented style. Nevertheless some of his singles are true gems and Halo of Flies is one of the very few songs that never failed me during the last 38 years; moreover, it is the #1 prog masterpiece created by a non-prog artist.

Since you're obviously fishing for some raised eyebrows with this statement, I'll bite.

Which Labyrinth did you see?LOL


It's tough between Elton John and David Bowie, but I'll go Bowie because I enjoyed his albums more. Elton John certainly had a long list of fantastic singles, and I'm more content with a greatest hits from him than an album. As for Prince, I've only heard a few singles on the radio. Not really my thing. Same for Alice Cooper, though I love "School's Out", never heard anything else and never felt compelled to pursue it.
