Willie wouldn't have even been where he is without the man in black. no question in my book. but alas, many here voted for willie!
edit: ok, so maybe it's not that black and white
but johnny's music resonates much more deeply with me
does willie have any sadder albums? the one i have sounds like it was coincidentally the happiest day of everyone's life, and then they all took ecstasy and the sun came out and Orpheus systems started raining down from the sky
