17 Noel Gallagher Noel Gallagher Noel Thomas David Gallagher is an English musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. He served as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and principal songwriter of the rock band Oasis.

Are you kidding me? Noel wrote song after song, album after album of pure heart. The words that he uses and the melodies that he blends them with are sure to turn anyone into a fan of his. His songs are always in my head. There's a song my Noel for any mood. He gets me through every day.

People, please, don't make me laugh! There are some artists able to maintain their popularity for one or few seasons, but it's not enough to call them heroes! Bowie on the other hand is a versatile artist who started many music genres and kept on recording and playing live until it became dangerous for his health, in my opinion it's a proof for his devotion to music and his fans. He's a great inspiration for many other musicians. He also supports several charity funds. - alinaschneider

I think something is so wrong with this generation, when one of the greatest living musicians wasn't mentioned so far. - saaarsdej
