    Shel Silverson...while he has been respected in the music industry for his songwriting...I don't think the general public realizes he was the man behind all the dr hook classics...and scores of hits by rock and country artists.

    ooh... second for ELO!

    no one seems to think much of David Byrne.... but I really enjoy his writing. the new album is short, but great!

    Very good Henri. Somebody knows their rock and roll history!

    Other artists that covered Willie's songs were Cream, Clapton, Steppenwolf and I beleive the Stones but I would have to check on that one.

    Many of the white blues purists (Page, Beck, Richards, Clapton, et al.) were fans of Willy Dixon which is why a lot of his tunes were covered by those guys. Any fan of those guitarists should know the name of Willy Dixon. But yes- he would be an underrated songwriter, except by those great guitarists who covered his songs.

    Great to hear there also so many Waits fans over here. Tom Waits his contribution to music may not be overlooked.

    I would like to add Nick Cave to the songwriters list.
