Greatest Music Producers of All Timemurph
The Contenders: Page 2
There are not too many he didn't work with! Pure Genius! - mdp1970
Rock music is what it is today because of Tom Dowd
He gave Motown the funk when he produced the The Temptations - Ain't Too Proud to Beg, Cloud Nine, Papa was a Rolling Stone, Marvin Gaye - Grapevine, Gladys Knight - Grapevine, The Nitty Gritty, Edwin Starr - War & Undisputed truth - Smiling Faces Tell Lies.
He told me "i got over 150 Hit Songs, not just Songs, Hit Songs, Son..." I would think this magazine would have known he is the Worlds Greatest All Time Producer...
AC/DC... Def Leppard... Shania... Need I say more?!? Although he is rather an idiot for cheating on the most beautiful woman in the world.
Sold the second highest album of music of all time.
300 Million records sold enough said
Why is he so low?! His creativity goes beyond most other producers. He is constantly changing musical trends, and sets the bar higher every time he releases a track. He is definitely underrated as a producer.
He's a musical genius and my dark twisted fantasy definitely pushed the boundaries of hip hop showing what versatility is all about
How is Kanye #22, he's easily top 5. Regardless of his personality and ego you can't take away his talent and creativity. He is a major influence in music in this generation.

How is Brian so Low? He's in league with Spector! His innovations and sheer creativity and imagination in the studio is enough for a place in the top ten. I mean, have you ever really listened to the arrangements from Pet Sounds, Smile, Today!, Summer days & hell, even Smiley Smile! The guy's insane with the music he creates. He's also deaf in one ear.
Brian Wilson is arguably the most influential composer/producer of the second half of the 20th century. His fingerprint can be seen in the works of myriad American artists as well as influencing the Beatles (study the bass lines on Sgt Pepper). Whilst maybe not everyone's choice it's just wrong if he's not at least in the top 10
The fact that brian is this low practically discredits the list. Pet sounds is just about perfectly produced and paved the way for others. Listen to the beach boys today or the smile sessions as we'll to see what I mean. He pioneered the idea of orchestration in popular music and his genius cannot be understated.
He's like music's most pure auteur! Should be top 5V 5 Comments
One touch from this guy is enough to transform any song to a successful hit...

If it weren't for this guy, all of load reload and black album would sound bassless like AJFA
he also a producer of DEAD END (one of the influential rock bands of japan) and other bands - ronluna
almost all famous bands in japan knows his name and be their producer - ronluna
Very famous in Japanese music, surely should be on this list.
He made some of the best mixes and beats ever, and should definitely be in the top ten. just listen to "the 6th sense", "The World is Yours", or "10 Crack Commandments" and you'll understand what I'm talking about. - Atliens
The man who introduced how beats in hip hop would be after the hip hop rennesance. - TheJudge

Best progressive house producer ever! How the heck is he not higher on this list?
Probably the man with the largest number of hits! From stockholm, Sweden. The man behind producers like: RedOne, Dr' Luke, shellback, among many.V 3 Comments
The most creative producer out there!
He's not only a producer, but a synthesizer, guitarist, rapper and singer too!
He's super underrated among awesome producers like dr dre and Kanye but everything he produces turns out great
from DRE to 50Cent to Byonce to Nos to well just about everyone... no one better and he has money taller than shaq... p. s. timberland gets eatten by scott storch he makes him look like a baby. - erickn55
Scott Storch is the most accomplished music producer the the best piano and keyboards player created mind blowing melodies that are not of this world.
He was the piano mastermind behind Dr. Dres 'Still D.R.E.'. He's better than Timbaland and Dre at producing, his coke addiction ruined him unfortunately.V 1 Comment
Teddy Riley was responsible for the whole New Jack Swing sound. He also co-wrote the Dangerous album for Michael Jackson which sold like 35 million albums. He should be higher!
