I'm getting confused here. Why is Neil Young a solo artist but not Hendrix? They both played with full bands.

maybe i wasn't as clear making my point as i should have. english is my second language and sometimes my wording is a bit off. my point is, in rock many great acts are bands, and for example in blues and jazz the most prominent acts have been solo artists.

seeing your point about neil youngs band, maybe you count the likes of bb king and miles davis as bands? as they had big bands behind them, but i don't think you should.

I just did a little research on a hunch and found that Metallica is also of mixed race. Lead guitarist Kirk Hammett is, by American standards, a black male.

This throws everything into disarray.

I never understood responses like this one. Dude says blacks don't play in rock bands that much (present tense) and you respond by saying "black people invented rock music." What's your point?

Now he might have meant they never did, which would be wrong...but it sure doesn't read that way.

In some cases true, and in others, it is false. As far as white people, you have Elvis Presley, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, and Michael Bolton just to name a few. They are white and some of the best solo performers you will find. There have also been a share of great black bands, such as the Supremes, the Isley Brothers, the Temptations, and The Jackson 5.
