I have recently "discovered" Warren Zevon and The Proclaimers, both of which I now think are marvellous, but you never hear much of them, probably because they are both only really known for one song each (Werevolves of London and Letter from America respectively). What are everyones top tips for the best kept secrets in music?

My wife saw the proclaimers at a "party in the park" event. She fell in love with them!...Why?

but they really are very good. Try "The Light", or "what makes you cry?" for starters

For me the best musicians and singers of all modern music was Queen. Put the Beatles in the shade and the group came to a premature end because of Mercury's death.

Genius' in the modern music world never to be equaled.

Warren Zevon died last year unfortunately.

"The Blue Nile" made a rather good album in the late eighties called "A walk across the rooftops".

"The colour of spring" by a band called Talk Talk rates as one of the best albums ever made, I think.

As it's the 3rd anniversary of Warren Zevon's death next Tuesday[7th Sept] it's not surprising his gigs have been few and far between recently.

Not so - he died of cancer in 2003
