DM is good for sure. U2 was OK, they got better after Eno. Eno is the BASF of music: he does not make the music that most of us listen to (unless you are me), he makes the music we listen to better (U2, Talking Heads, DEVO, Bowie's Low and Heros, Roxy Music).
Guitar? Robert Fripp. Sorry, Edge is not worthy to hold a used G string from the Fripp guitar (if it was even tuned to G, you never know with Fripp).
Lyrics? Bowie and Cat Stevens are my favorites.
And there is always a place in my heart for Gary Numan. Are "Friends" electric? Maybe . . .
