Most Creative Musicians

Creativity is one of the key elements for a successful musician! While many musicians are great, because they're talented, technical or just overly skilled, these creative ones are responsible for some of the most unique sounds in music!

Also I will count guitarists, singers, drummers, bassists, keyboardists and more for this list!

The Top Ten

Wrong, she was never creative. As part of the Disney machine, they had dozens of actual creative people coming up with stuff, she was little more than a trained monkey, doing what they told her to do.

She deserves the top spot.

She was creative back during Hannah Montana, but now she's a loser.

I love this woman. I vote for her because she is one of my favorite artists and that is my honest opinion. I also like Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, Kate Bush and a few more. I don't think I am the one who added her to this list but if I were it would be because I honestly think she is creative, not because I am a troll.

What's this joke doing on the list?

She's nothing but a stupid hoe, Take this off the list.

Look at this list first and then decide if you should post her here. What would even give you the notion to type. Should have moved on and found a list that would be more appropriate. If there is one.

The music Mr. Mercury wrote on Queen II was out of this world. He was one of the best songwriters of all time, because of how unique his songs were.

I'm not a very Mercury's big fan, but is truth! He should be number 1 on this

He was multitalented, he wasn't just great in singing, but he was a great songwriter, a great piano-player and a talented in drawing, watch his drawings and paintings on internet!

Roger Waters is a genius. He is the mastermind behind many of Pink Floyds greatest albums, including The Wall, Dark Side Of The Moon, Animals, and Wish You Were Here (etc). Even his solo stuff like Amused to Death is amazing. He is the king of the concept album, and to this day, wrote some of the best, deepest lyrics ever.
