    Stevie Wonder is one of the most amazingly talented people to ever walk the face of the earth.

    Simply amazing. How do you go from that to "I Just Called to Say I Love You?"

    Drum solos suck!

    That was pretty cool though.

    Its kind of like... most people think of Ray Charles and think of his voice. Or even Louis Armstrong ... many think of his voice more than their virtuoso instrumental performances.

    Totally agreed! And I didn't even know he knew how to play the drums. Makes you wonder... who's blind? That guys vocal melodies are way over what many singers can even handle and he does that whle playing keys.

    As far as the I Just Called comment, I'm not a fan of pop either, but you really have to ask yourself, how many people have the knack much less the ability to write a top hit? That guy has cranked them out over and over again for years now!!

    Amazing!

    Well said. But we all know how a good # of posters here react to bands and artists that actually sell merchandise and albums outside of their environment.

    Stevie and Ray both have been called pop. But I have to ask. Who the fuck was doing what they were doing long enough for them to jump on any bandwagon. Those guys... sure they wrote music that they thought people would love. But that isn't pop. That isn't selling out. Their music... has a depth to it that a fan of music can enjoy just as much as somebody out there to ... have a good time.

    Any musician that can strike an emotion in so many people... can't be a sell out. Because it takes more than just a good song writer to do that.

    You took the words right from my keyboard Rick! :p I knew about the singing, keys, & harmonica but, I had no idea about his drumming talent either! I'd like to see him tear it up on a kit like Neil Peart's or Mike Portnoy's! :headbang: Stevie Wonder is a musical genius and his talent seems to know no bounds IMHO! Yeah sure he did that catchy commercial song "I Just Called To Say I Love You", but he also had great funky stuff like the clip above and "Higher Ground" (which the RHCP later covered). And he wrote the "Songs In The Key Of Life" album...if anyone can't appreciate him from all we mentioned and more...
