Peter Gabriel. He made Melt. Security, which includes San Jacinto. So. Peter Gabriel is a great man, a smart man, a noble man, and he has changed music by virtue of being innovative, alive and introspective. - Sebastos156

Saw him live. Godamn! All there is to say. Security, So, Cars, Melt, Passion, Up and Us are all perfect.

Why? His solo music from the 70s is incredible. His 80s music is great as well. even his soundtracks! Listen to the music he wrote for The Last Temptation of Christ.

68 George Harrison George Harrison George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles.

After leaving the Beatles, while he didn't receive much recognition, he definitely should have. His solo work is better than John Lennon's experimental idiocy and Paul McCartney's generic rock combined, probably from a combination of both's styles, while still capturing the essence of the Beatles. See "All Things Must Pass" and "Cloud Nine".

80 Jeff Buckley Jeff Buckley Jeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997) raised as Scott "Scottie" Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. more.

One of the most underrated artists of all time. Jeff Buckley's life and music was cut short so that only a select amount of people recognize and appreciate his music. It's a shame that Jeff never got the attention in the music industry he deserved. Jeff Buckley deserves to be in the top ten without a doubt. RIP Jeff

Short live but great music impact. Jeff Buckley is a true artist and his music and lyrics just defines a lost period in the nineties. So sad that his talent never got fully unfolded.
