They really didn't have all that much in common. One was a solo artist, the other a lead singer in a band. One was mainstream rock, the other new wave. One came across as a regular guy, the other eccentric. One showed emotion, the other hid behind dark glasses. One belted out a song, the other drolly warbled the lyrics. One was built like a jock, the other looked undernourished.
But that's all right. I don't need my rock stars, or any music stars, to be exactly, or even remotley, alike. All I ask is that they occasionally come up with a tune that's worth a listen. And these two gentlemen did just that.
