1) Once an artist or member of an act is drafted they are unavailable to anyone else however side-projects and solo artist from that act would still be eligible until separately drafted.
13) If an artist performs both solo and with a set band, then when one is drafted all iterations are off the table. For example, if Prince is drafted then Prince and the Revolution is off the table. However if Neil Young is drafted then Neil Young & Crazy Horse is off the table but not Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
Honestly this is kind of a weird situation. I feel like John "solo" would have been drafted long ago if it wasn't assumed that Katy's pick was basically John w/ Yoko & co. (Plastic Ono Band) as his back-up. Although John & Yoko reads as any other "artist and artist" billing does, I don't think they ever really played together as, well, equals lol. Yoko was John's back-up.
I'd need to see setlists of John Lennon performing solo vs. with Yoko.
I think this is cut and dry. When I drafted Yoko with John, it doesn’t make that a seprate act from John solo, it just means John will have Yoko on stage as part of his band, like he did many many many times. I fucked up by not labeling it Plastic Ono Band, and I take that one on the chin, but I think the intentions are pretty obvious.
Last draft I took Paul Simon with Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Later on, someone tried to take Paul Simon solo and was roundly told no by many people. I see this as the same situation.
If this was a valid pick someone would have made it 20+ rounds ago.
My gut is it seems eligible if he performed solo and as John and Yoko
It would be cool if either party provided evidence that one or the other did or didn't happen in this thread.
Edit: I guess what I should ask is.. did Lennon ever just perform onstage by himself? Because we had this argument about jazz players, and my point at the time was that Miles Davis should not be distinct from Miles Davis Quartet, because Miles Davis would be performing with other musicians in every reasonable scenario.
