What a grace she has... CHITHRA IS LIVING LEGEND
NO ONE CAN BEAT HER, SHE SHOULD BE IN THE TOP ONE, WILL BE, YES

I'm not familiar with her, but seeing the rest of the top twenty as it is I have to ask: Does she even play a musical instrument?

He's one six grammys he deserves to be one the top ten great guitar player.

35Bob MarleyRobert Nesta "Bob" Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.

I strongly believe that Bob Marley should be in the top 10. His music was most inspiring and timeless.

Is this a joke that he is not at least no.3?

We only had him for a short time but he pourd out words that led to the freedom of many nations and individuals... I think he should be next to MJ
