Oooohh, David Wilcox.  Good choice.  The guy can certain write a song and deliver a performance.  His "Big Horizon" is one of my favorites. 

"Strong Chemistry"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szRv55H7DPs
"I got a weakness for strong chemistry
One touch - all my resolutions change
I can say this is no good for me
But I'm back for more of the same
High on the ecstasy - medication against the pain
Our bodies fit desperately together
Like a needle against a vein"

Yeah.  He writes about everyday things and experiences.  There are so many...  Bernie Marsden is another of my guys, + he is a great guy.  When Gayle and I went on our second Joe Bonamassa cruise he came over and asked if he could sit with us at dinner.  I had gone up to the stage after his first (poorly attended... oh, my) performance and told him I loved his guitar tone.  We sat and talked about life, mostly.  He is just a “guy” that loves music like me. OTOH, Robben Ford is a distant, arrogant asshole.  Great player, nasty person... sigh..................

David Crosby said that you can ask Joni Mitchell to write a song about a stop sign and 2 hours later she'd bring you the best song you'd ever heard. But this is my list:

1. Duke Ellington
2. The Gershwins
3. Rogers and Hart, Rogers and Hammerstein
4. Hoagy Carmichael
5. Cole Porter
6. Harold Arlen
7. Lennon McCartney
8. Joni Mitchell
9.  Townes Van Zandt
10. Guy Clark
11. Neil Young
12. Bob Wills
