He has a great voice, kickass music, and he's a showman, which makes his concerts all the more interesting. He should be at least in the top ten! He's a badass!

144 Steve Miller
He's got many great hits, and many of them has some very nice melodies.
145 John Mellencamp
Some of his songs are based on his own life. Rain on the Scarecrow is my favorite. It's based on his childhood, when his farm went into forclosure. I believe his music will last long beyond his lifetime. So many great songs with meaning.

153 Tommy Shaw
154 John Paul Jones
John Baldwin, better known by his stage name John Paul Jones, is an English multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, arranger and record producer.
Plays over twenty instruments, at least 15 fluently. That is a musician, not someone who excels on just one instrument. This guy should be top ten and he's not even on the list? I mean, I love Robert Plant, but Jones is a thousand times the musician of not only Plant but nearly everyone on this list. Please give this list at least some legitimacy and put the heartbeat of Led Zeppelin where he belongs!
If it has keys or strings he can play it. That is a musician, folks.

Wilhelm Richard Wagner was a German composer, theatre director, polemicist, and conductor who is primarily known for his operas.
