well who do you think are the most talented musicians? obviously, they can come from any genre, just as long as they're good with their instrument and innovative.

I'll leave other people to talk about the likes of John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix

Mine (initial thoughts)

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (Mars Volta, solo, At The Drive-In, De Facto etc.)

Cedric Bixler-Zavala (Mars Volta, At The Drive-In, De Facto etc.)

Thom Yorke (Radiohead, solo)

Mike Patton (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom, Faith No More, Fantômas etc.)

Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz, The Good, The Bad & The Queen)

Ali Farka Touré (solo)

Manu Chao (solo, producing)

Wiley (solo, Roll Deep)

Ry Cooder (solo, producing)

Björk (solo)

for now...

What a great idea for a topic.

Jimi Hendrix with his incredible song writing and soloing techniques, mixing with a couple different genres in his unfortunately too short career.

Allen Collins (Lead guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd 1973-1977): for his notable guitar solos and jams that was a key ingredient to the band's success.

Steve Gaines (Lead/rhythm guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd 1975-1977): for his blues-style writings in a southern rock band that just gave it an amazing sound.

Johnny Cash: one of the world's favorites.

Elvis Presley: inspirational rock and roll "king."

B.B. King: with his famous blues licks and solos (The Thrill Is Gone) and his absolutely amazing work with Eric Clapton.

Stevie Ray Vaughan: another Texas originated blues player that could play the blues with a "true passion." Listen to Texas Flood and you'll be blown away.

Jimmy Page: one great song writer and guitar player.

James Hetfield: a great all-around musician.

To name a few others:
Carlos Santana
Ray Charles
Steven Tyler
Buddy Guy
Duane Allman
Ray Orbison
Buddy Holly
Elton John

Damon Albarn, hands down. Hes been a key factor in the revolution of modern and world music. Totally hard working and an interesting fella all the while. Too under-rated.

I think Prince takes the cake when it comes to talent... Isn't he a master at like 30 different instruments, write (lyrically+musically), perform, produce, and distribute ALL of his OWN music? He is a pure genius if you ask me.

QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.
