    After being very unimpressed by the setlist of Bob Dylan's radio show, getting fustrated at Steven Van Zandt for holding up the filming of The Sopranos and reading Alex Kapranos' stale coloumn in the Guardian on numerous occasions, I feel the need to declare that the majority of musicians should just stick to their day job. Are there any musicians out there who balance two careers with an equal amount of prestige?

    Ah it wasn't just him, the fella who played Pauley Wallnuts was holding out too. Besides, Syl is genius, I can forgive him almost anything.

    I know but I think it's just because the last season was been muck. He's still a cracking guitarist, especially his stuff with Southside Johnny and of course The E Street Band.

    That makes you sound like one of Jem and the Holograms. Or maybe the Misfits.

    Ronnie Wood is also a pretty good painter, as is Marilyn Manson.

    John Squire is mean :( Nick Cave wrote and directed a film recently, didn't he? Gwen Stefani has an awesome clothing label: LAMB Madonna has a million-selling children's book series I remember interviewing Daniel Spitz from Anthrax a couple of years ago, and when Anthrax first split, he went off to Switzerland to become a watchmaker and over 10 years became the second best in the world at the craft. He only repairs watches worth millions now. What a legend! 50cent has a top selling Vitimin Water flavour I thought Eminem was v g in 8Mile

    ronnie wood is pretty good at painting alright, would Dylan count as a novelist for "chronicles"? what about people who are equally as bad at what they do? like spice girls, movies n muzak.

    Well Ludacris gave an excellent performance in Crash but he's a terrible MC so he's somebody who I'd actually encourage to give up his day job. Like wise the Soulwax boys are far better DJ's than they are musicians.

    Frankly Stroller i couldn't disagree more with both points: Ludacris was terrible in crash really over acting and bombastic, as for soulwax, they are such a brilliant live band much against everyones advice has some cracking tunes
