Bob Welch as Songwriter
I've said it before but I'll say it again: Bob Welch is an amazing songwriter.
I finally got my hands on the Heroes songbook and that, along with the music I'm reading from the Mystery songbook, reveals what a complex, interesting songwriter he is. Just tooling around with some of the tunes--Born Enchanter, Coming Home, Angel--is so much fun! The chords and rhythms are interesting.
He might not have had the voice or onstage charisma that sells mega-millions of records, but he could write really strong songs.
