Most Talented MusiciansThese are the most talented musicians to ever walk this great Earth.
The Top Ten
A travesty having this guy at #1, when there are a bunch of vocalists who were and are far better. In rock or pop, Elvis Presley, Levi Stubbs, Frank Sinatra, and Marvin Gaye to name just a few are much better, and that's not to mention classical singers like Luciano Pavrotti and Andrea Bocelli who make Freddie look like an amateur. And as for comparing Freddie to Beethoven or Mozart, he is not even in the same universe.
Best singer ever! How can anyone compete with him? An angel in a mans body!
I think there's nothing more to say...
An Indian glad to see this Legend in top 1..
HE IS LEGEND, am an Indian proud of Him, british stole everything from India including Farrokh bulsara
Aren't we taking about musicians here? Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach should be 1, 2, and 3. Todays society has vastly neglected true musical geniuses throughout history.
Freddie Mercury is very talented but I don't think he is more talented than Beethoven and Mozart. (my personal opinion). - zxm
Music? Tallent? There Is Absolutely No One More Talented Than Beethoven - 12ccV 1 Comment
Come on he's number 1, Hands Down, his abilities to write symphonies concertos with hardly any mistakes or rewrites is simply amazing... + his body of work speaks for itself.He's talent was almost supernatural... The rest are all extremely talented. The real question is who's the next best.. Easily Beethoven!
Please, everyone knows Mozart is n°1. I don't listen to classical music much but it's pretty much the father of all music and more complex than anything most musicians could ever hope to achieve, sorry all you Paul fans out there but there is nothing amazing about him compared to the true legends.
The musician ever in my eyes played the piano for the Austrian emperor when he was only 3 years old
I don't think Freddie Mercury should outrank Beethoven and Mozart. On number 3 it'd great. But number 1 is kinda overrated. - zxmV 2 Comments
He has the whole package! He wrote and composed most of his songs, he had an incredible voice along with inhuman dance skill. There's just no comparison.
Simply the greatest entertainer msuic ever saw. He was the greatest dancer. Greatest singer. A talented lyricist and composer. In the end, he was MJ.
The man who created dance and music, wasn't even trained but yet the greatest entertainer to ever live!
He can do magic with the best danceing,singing and composing skillsV 9 Comments
Where do I start? One of the greatest bass players of all time, master of the piano and had a smooth melodic voice, with a great vocal range for somebody who could be considered a baritone and an amazing screamer at the same time, a living legend
He is a brilliant composer who never runs out of ideas. His vocal range is amazing, and his voice is heavenly. Finally, he's a very talented and expressive piano and bass player!
Plays virtually every instrument, has written some of the greatest songs ever, more successful than any other composer or musician in human history, singlehandedly invented heavy metal and indie, and plays 3 hour rock concerts at 73 years old wit out even taking a drink of water.
Never learned to read music, plays by "perfect pitch", one amazing musician.V 4 Comments
RIP Brian Jones. You will always be my favorite Rolling Stone band member. He was the founding member and even came up with the bands name. He played...
Xylophone - Doggyface12345
Unbelievably talented. Rest in Peace, Jones! You were one of the biggest highlights of the 60's! - MontyPython
Most talented musician of all time.
Out of all the guys in the Beatles, he knew the most about music. Listen to With you without you, learn the story behind it, and you'll see what I mean.V 2 Comments
Honestly, I don't think he is the most talented, but he's better than #10 to #4 so I guess he's the fourth most talented.
The greatest most beautiful soul besides for jesus to walk the earth. Not only inspiring but thought provocking. He and paul both don't even know how to read or write music that proves both of there genius!
He just proves even more the fact every Beatle is insanely talented!
And, as expected, he can sing like a boss!
Damn, his presence at the helm says it all.. I don't think there is anyone in the Thrash game who can write what he does.
This is musicians not vocalists, jimmy plays a ton of instruments fluently and of course one of the best guitarists of all time
Page is an incredible musician, but I believe John Paul Jones is even better. You're comparing genius with genius, though, so how can you go wrong?
No one on this list besides Beethoven is more talented then Page. Paul McCartney is half the musician Page is
He is probably the second greatest guitarist of all time behind Hendrix, but that's all anyone knows him for. did you guys know that he founded Led Zeppelin, wrote most of their songs, and produced all of their music. people don't give him enough credit, producing music is extremely challenging.V 6 Comments
Can sing, dance, rap, direct, write. He has been involved in a lot of feuds such as the famous Rihanna incident, but you've got to admire his talent. - Forhad_765
Most imaginative songwriter to ever live, one of the greatest ever guitarists and sings too but also plays bass, piano, drums and many more I'm sure. He was also one of the first musicians to make use of the synthesizer and also one of the first to use feedback. On top of this he helped invent the Marshall Stack. An absolute musical genius
Not only an excellent guitar player, but one of the greatest songwriters in rock history. You think writing a song is hard? Try writing an entire albums revolving around a single story. He did that. Twice. He single handily created what are almost universally considered the two greatest rock operas of all time, Tommy and
Can play so many instruments and is amazing at each of them
Also, JPJ did string arrangements on songs by the Rolling Stones, beautiful mandolin player (several Zep songs, including "That's The Way"), extremely versatile & intuitive session player (like Jimmy Page).V 2 Comments
Greatest metal musician ever!
Not only could he play drums like a boss, he could also play the following excellently:
He also can sing like a boss and has written the band's biggest hits like:
A Little Piece of Heaven
The Rev did so much for Avenged Sevenfold. He wrote the band's greatest hits!
A Little Piece of Heaven
He can also play:
He was also a great metal singer!
Definitely the most talented metal musician!
Easily the best and most underrated musician of all time! The Dave Grohl of metal!
Patrick Stump has most amazing vocal ranges ever. Patrick played every instrument on his solo album "Soul Punk", including vocals. He also wrote the lyrics for "Soul Punk". He can play drums, guitar, piano, bass, trumpet, and many more. Patrick writes most of the music for Fall Out Boy, and also help Pete Wentz write lyrics. I have too add that this man can not read sheet music, but despite this still manages to play all of these instruments and make really great music. Search "What a Catch, Donnie Fall Out Boy live" on YouTube and watch "Fall Out Boy-"What a Catch, Donnie" and "Where Did the Party Go" (Live in Los Angeles 6-13-13)" to get a taste of his vocal range.
When people hear the name"Fall Out Boy" the first thing that comes to mind is Pete Wentz. Well, he is pretty great, but if he quit the band, Patrick Stump could totally play bass instead of him. If Pete was really great, he would be able to do more than bass guitar. Patrick Stump is the true star of Fall Out Boy, the world needs to see that.
With a vocal range to rival Paul McCartney's and the ability to play 14+ different instruments all without ever being taught to read sheet music, Patrick Stump is one of the most talented musicians of our generation
For those of you who don't know, he's the lead singer of Fall Out Boy. Not only can the man sing, he can play like 15 other instruments too.V 2 Comments
