I have always been fascianted by the fact that none of the playback singers have emerged as good composers. SPB gave it a shot and in fact "Mayuri" was a decent try but did'nt proceed from there.

Is it due to mindsets or singers do'nt have the musical width in their thought. They seem to narrow themselves to melody but appreciation of rhythm or other facets of music seems to elude them.
Am sure SPB or KJY or SJ should posses enough muscial knowledge to let their creative energy fly. Why are'nt they attempting or have they attempted?
Or is it only instrumentalist who can make it as composers?
