You must be joking…

When singing in the shower… I am “the single most talented musical entity of all time”.

Yes @tom_g… I’m sure the boys in #1 are very talented at many things.

@tom_g We don’t always agree, but that was ROTFLMAO material.

I can’t pick one. I tried.
Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, U2, AC/DC, Keith Richards, Stevie Ray, Kiss, Queen, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, Deep Purple, The Who. Among many many others.
Not quite what the question asked, I couldn’t narrow it down further.

Paul, John, George and Ringo.

Johann Sebastian Bach

While I totally appreciate Led Zepplein, the Beatles, etc…. I can’t help but wonder if their music, and more importantly their contribution to our tonal system and compositional structure, will endure for well over three centuries.

Beethoven

and Patsy Cline

and Leonard Cohen

If Beethoven was really deaf like they say, he would have to be it. To be able to do that without even hearing it, has to show more talent then the law allows.

@Hypocrisy_Central – Actually Beethoven didn’t start out deaf. He developed deafness over time. Still, even if he used to hear well it’s pretty darned hard to write something like his 9th Symphony without being able to actually hear it.

As a side note, I have always contended that Beethoven’s music is best played LOUD (Hard to beat his 5’th cranked up to window rattling levels!) and I personally believe that that may be the result of him writing in such a way that it was more pleasing to his diminishing hearing.
