That last post was getting too long, but I wanted get a few more points out.
Just because someone can play flawlessly doesn't mean they can make great music:

Example of good band composed of session players:

Toto


Example of bad band composed of session players:

Mr. Mister


Example of band that sounds great when they use their own band:

Example of band that sounds boring when they use session players:

Piamenta

Good examples with Piamenta, but I don't see how you can call Toto a good band. That's truly a matter of opinion.

I like "Africa" and "Roseanna," but that's it. I like "Kyrie" and "Broken Wings," too.

Mr. Mister and Toto are both full-blown 80s cheese.

Yeah, but look at the hair...

I'm not saying Mr. Mister was cool, by any means.

But the hair isn't a defense.

Is there ever a decade where you can look back and say, "Now THAT was good hair"?
Seriously, in defense of Toto, Hold the Line is probably one of the best Rock songs ever written.
