Can't say that I agree on that. Paul does some of my favorite vocal work of the Airplane on songs like "In Time", "Crown of Creation", "Won't You Try", "Wooden Ships", and "Martha."
dispensable? remember what coleridge said: "but if the definition sought for be that of a legitimate poem, I answer, it must be one, the parts of which mutually support and explain each other; all in their proportion harmonizing with, and supporting the purpose and known influences of metrical arrangement."
the logic would seem to hold true of musical groups that achieve a perfect union of disparate parts as well. after all poetry is more than words on a page.
