48 Rick James

Rick James was way ahead of his time. And America still has not fully caught up with his music yet. He was The king of punk funk and duke of Fun Wave. He set the tone that many followed and some ripped him off. He blended rock, funk, new wave and rock.
To create some of the greatest music ever made. He had many hits. And one of his big ones Mary Jane, the greatest song ever with a flute as a major instrument in it.

Outstanding! Mixed Funk, pop and punk and created PUNK-FUNK. Great live shows and a real innovator in the industry. Still copied and sampled by many today. The King of Punk-Funk Rick James.

I just entered him because I missed him the first time around. Top 50 isn't too bad, but he should be top 20.

One of the greatest guitar players ever and really what this list should be all about.
