Way too many to begin to list.
Yo Yo Ma.... Probably the greatest Living musician, and 1 of the greatest of the 20th century.
Isao Tomita... Hendrix of the Synth, and Jordan Rudess' favorite player. He just died a couple weeks ago.
Those are a few I like.
You have not been proven wrong so far....
Bach, Coltrane, Holdsworth.
"genuinely beautiful things don't ask for attention"
And he never will be.
kindness is someones trolly alt account IMO.
JS Bach & Mozart. They come ahead of all the many other Great Masters, in my book.
Beethoven, who was deaf, or almost deaf, and was still writing incredible music.
Jimmy Page. the body of work he achieved from 68-74 is staggering.
Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
Fantastic careers spanning 40 years.
Living genius, it would be Pat Metheny.
Dead, too many to list, but Bach, Mozart, Charlie Parker and Django come to mind.
Impossible to pick 1.
John Mayall. What an amazing career he's had and he's still touring and recording at 82. I don't know if he'd be considered a musical genius but he has a really great ability in putting
together outstanding bands with some of the best guitar players on the planet, and he just keeps going.
This. And chuck D from Public Enemy.
(OK. Not really Chuck D...)
Another vote for Steven Wilson.
"Without Elvis, none of us would have made it". John Lennon.
If you don't care for the thread or a poster's topics, move along and stop thread crapping.
Just makes work for the moderators.
I'm going with Chris Thile.
Much like the old masters, he was able to master his technique at an early age and begin concentrating on writing and interpreting music. I don't know of anyone who can translate as much emotion through an instrument.
