At no stage (as I have shown more than adequately) have I ever mentioned the phrase "third most important artist of the 20th century". Never, not once. It's actually you that's needs to read posts, not me, and then stop this dashed annoying habit of talking to people in the most possible patronising tone in response - when in fact it's you that's in the wrong.
Third rate? If you throw up a list as arbirary as you do, don't be too surprised when people take its lowest common denominator to use as an example - Mogwai? Do they really deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Bowie, let alone be elevated to even third rate? Thought not.
As for Zeppelin being what they are - well, for me they have made music as great as any band. For me. It's an opinion. Live with it. Whether that makes them important I don't know - nor, frankly, care. But there again, I never used that phrase in the first place, did I?
Hugs and kisses.
But you keep shifting the goalposts! How can I keep up if yo=u change what something means every 3rd post?
In answer to your question, I've seen Bowie live and I've seen Moghwai live. Bowie isn't fit to switch on their amps. I would wager you have never heard mogwai, certainly not more than a passing glance, and are actually making a judgemment based on prejudice.
I can't wait to see who you put at number 4.
