Greatest Music Producers of All Timemurph
The Contenders: Page 3
Should be at least top 5. A revolutionary who made the Manchester sound. His drum rifs are so distinctive and he even used to record silence to put into his music. One word, genius.
Should be top 5, arguably even number 1. His sound was so unique no one else can come close to him. Genius.
A complete genius. Closer is a masterpiece of productionV 2 Comments
I don't agree with that last statement. He didn't produce more hits by more artists over time than anyone else. But I agree he should be Top 10 or close. Trouble is, who really hears about producers outside of the music industry? Not most of the unwashed masses.
Plain and simple…Richard produced more hits by more artists over more time than anybody in the entire business!
Phil Ramones at 41 is criminal...
He produced albums by Billy Joel, Chicago, etc.
One of the greats. Don't forget their work with the SOS Band.
Janet Jackson, Mary j blinge, new edition, mint condition, sounds of blackness need I say moreV 2 Comments

Best beat maker in Iran and worldV 6 Comments
Produced the best work by The Rolling Stones; Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main St. , and Goats Head Soup. Not only a producer but a musician. It's him drummin' on "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and the cowbell on "Honky Tonk Women".V 1 Comment
U people r crazy! Skrillex should be number one. He is a music producer, DJ, singer and songwriter. He is also the king of dubstep.
I can't believe Will. i. am isn't even on this list. Is there something wrong with you people? Everyone knows Timbaland is extremely overrated. Everything Will. iam touch turns to gold. - Zarom
Right and Everything Dre touches turns Platinum :D
He is a musical genius and everything he produces sound like a hit
How is he higher than Bob Erzin and how in the world is he considered a musical genius by some in the comments? How low are your standards?
Did 2 great kiss albums. Did Pink Floyd's the wall and did like 8 Alice cooper albums. Those are are legendary rockers with great records with himV 1 Comment
Queen, hello? What about the Cars? Foreigner, Journey, Free, David Bowie...
The Eagles, BB King, Joe Walsh, The Who, J Geils Band, Bob Seger, Carlos Santana, and many one off hit singles are all under this guys resume. Should be higher in my opinion
Fairport Convention The Strawbs, Richard Thompson, John Martyn - the world would be so much poorer!
If you don't know who Joe Meek was, then you don't know your music history. Unique, original and a trail-blazer. Google him and find out more...
Heavy influence behind Kraftwerk and most modern electronic based music. Should be in the top ten!V 1 Comment
