I was tempted to vote sting for dune but I liked wilson's raven who refused to queef record. police and copeland for the others

harrison is "better" and I've seen him w/ KC twice, a band I definitely think beats the pigs. still, copeland is just too unique to deny. pop prog is hard to pull off

Sting is a better actor.

I liked him in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.

Police all the way. I'll get to Porcupine Tree when I feel like killing myself.

Your loss, besides, Morrissey is the music for that.

That may be true but to me alot of the police lyrics are bleak and or depressing.

SW needs more music like permanating!

In terms of musical genius and sonic master, its SW by a mile. His live sound is crazy good. His studio work as well

His client list speaks for itself imo

It would be a loss if I dismissed them completely. But I gave them a fair shot, and have three of their albums. Not a band I like, as much as I tried.

That's a fair shake for sure. I am usually a one and done if I am not stoked.

If I want elevated pop-rock, I go with Sting.  If I want pop-rock-sensitive prog, give me Steve Wilson.  Depends on the mood.

At least you tried as opposed to those that dismiss an entire genre because of their perceptions.

I put this question to Rod earlier and I thought it might be a good poll since there's a few parallels with their careers, although one is much more famous and successful in terms of record sales, but both started in a rock band then abandoned it for a solo career.
