An astounding poet/songwriter whose light I missed until the 90s. Often used, but the word genius is well appropriate.
I'll start with her.....

GREAT song writer. He talks too much during shows for my taste.
he played a tune in Charlotte ( cant remember which) and said he gave it to Bonnie Raitt. he's glad he did...it put 3 kids through college and then some.
Haha, yur right! I see him all the time. Not for awhile now (the tour doesn't stop in Shanghai :).... The song is: "A Thing Called Love" & when I saw him, he said the royalties from Bonnie R, from this one song, paid for the nursery, for his baby" He has so many great albums; one of my favorites (which really "rocks out") is "Perfectly Good Guitar"
Best songwriter in the history of man?
ok, great songwriters that are not really (or could be) great musicians. here it goes:
paul simon - one of the greatest hands down
david byrne - one of a kind...all original
colin hay - men at work, good simple solo acoustic tunes
mike scott - the waterboys. great songwriter with some of that irish twangy charm thrown in
frank black - the pixies. nuff said
steve harris - yes, steve harris
peter gabriel - ahhhh
Easy mutha fkin E - lol
thats all i can think of right now
