I would have a hard time calling Johnny Greenwood or John Frusciante superstars. Heck, I would barely even call Thom Yorke a superstar. But I would definitley say Flea and Anthony Keidis are.

John Frusciante is THE Chili Pepper. Genius. Him and Greenwood are the best guitarists of their generation. Love 'em!

derek and the dominoes...with eric clapton and dwayne allman

I have a question about a musician (maybe even a superstar musician) who is the bald headed, spectacle wearing percussionist that appears in nearly all of the superstar fundraising concerts...he was in the Concert for George too? I've been watching him for decades, even seen him live a time or two. Just wasn't always in a ...remembering frame of mind when I saw him :shock:

You mean Ray Cooper? He's played with Elton John for years. Plays a mean tamborine. 8)

Ray Cooper - yes he turns up everywhere! :lol:

How about Yazoo: (Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke who did Erasure)
and Split Enz - both the Finn brothers went on to have successful careers beyond the Enz - Tim Finn didn't exactly become a 'superstar' in the US / UK but he certainly was here in NZ and in Australia where he had huge hits in the Australian charts in the early 80s. Neil Finn of course became a genuine superstar in Crowded House.

I always thought Crouded House would have been much more successful if the record companies had only promoted them...just a little bit. favoring the nice style of Beatly pop myself, I always thought they were very good. Thier sophomore effort was really under-rated.

And its funny, I know I've seen Ray Cooper's name all over the place, I just never put two and two together.

There was an SNL skit several years ago - I think it was right after Eric Clapton's Unplugged album came out, where they did a hysterical impression of him.

On a side note - In her book John, Cynthia Lennon said Ray Cooper went out of his way to make Julian and Cynthia feel comfortable during those awkward times in the '70s. I think Cynthia and Ray are still good friends. 8)
And in the end...
