Neil Young

I love his acoustic guitar work.
I love his electric stomp skronk
I love his harmonica playing, my favorite rock n roll harmonica ever
I love his singing

I love neil young and his grizzled canadian self.

I haven't heard all of his work, but it seems to me everything Will Oldham does is golden.

not everything, trust me on that. he has a very lax way of recording, he basically just picks whatever of his musician friends are availible and record. sometime the spontanaity of this recording style makes for some beautiful songs (i see a darkness, viva last blues, etc..) and sometimes its pretentious bullshit (lots and lots and lots of stuff).

Nice choice, he was also in Toy Love, and was responsible for recording a lot of the Flying Nun bands.

Yeah, I know he was in Toy Love, I just haven't heard that material despite having several Tall Dwarfs and solo albums. His painting is also mind-blowingly good. He stayed in my apartment in Olympia when he was on tour in the late '90s and we hit it off pretty well. He's a fun guy if you can handle some massively strong personal opinions (he hates Alex Chilton for instance, which I thought was really odd).

Again I agree with you Death, he recorded fewer than 20 tracks with Pink Floyd, and the rest is just solo stuff. Its not really a very broad output yet, however in '06 a lost live recording of Syd Barrett and The Stars was unearthed, and a release was discussed. Maybe if that surfaces we'll have more of a body of work to talk about. But y'know, I still love him, as my avatar suggests...

Neil Young & Lucinda Williams.
I more or less love everything that these two solo artists have done.

I enjoy other solo artists of course... David Bowie, Bjork, Joni Mitchell, etc... but they have spotty catalogues that I'm not consistently crazy about.

Neil Young and Lucinda Williams on the other hand manage to please me time and again. In fact, thinking about them in this context makes me realize how great it would be to see them collaborate somehow together!

YIKES!!! BIG EDIT:::

Nina Simone..... the late great......... can't believe I forgot her as a third mention.
