I mean, I found out about Odell Brown because he co-wrote Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye… If co-writing incredibly well-known songs doesn’t count as having impact, then I don’t know what does!
Also interesting bio; nice fictional story: Roy Bianco & Die Abbrunzati Boys
Tells us more about the reviewer than the artist. The “didn’t make much impact” comment is unnecessary, unhelpful and ugly. The fact that it’s wrong makes it even more so.
