VOTING FOR THE BEST BRITISH SOLO SONGWRITERS

We have 18 nominees for the best British solo songwriters. Not as many as we had for the Americans, but a goodly number of worthy contenders. I'm sure there are a couple of deserving artists that we've overlooked, but most of the significant songwriters of the original British invasion and a few of the late 70s New Wave/punk movement that transcended that brief moment in history are the main complement of the nominees. As on our last compilation, please try to make ten picks with first place being weighted for 10 points and descending to 1 point for a tenth place vote. Also as before to accomodate any artists that are felt to have been overlooked, everyone is allowed one write in vote of any artist not included in the nominated list no questions asked. Also as before, more than one write in candidate is permitted but must be accompianed by some information explaining why they deserve consideration. I will leave voting open for one week and will compile votes as I did previously. It has been a pleasure to write these posts and to know that ANYBODY has the patience to tolerate my writing style and pompous attitudes. I thank everybody who has chosen to participate both here and in my previous blogs and I have one more catagory planned for my next blog which I should get going this week. Explanations of your voting preferences are quite welcome though not required. Again, thanks to all of you who have been here and I'll see you on the other side.

  • IAN ANDERSON
  • DAVIS BOWIE
  • ERIC CLAPTON
