2 Elton John Sir Elton Hercules John CBE is an English singer, pianist, and composer. He has worked with lyricist Bernie Taupin as his songwriting partner since 1967; they have collaborated on more than 30 albums to date.

Elton was a child prodigy and was offered a place in the Royal Academy of Music at age 11. He left the Academy after a few years because he wanted to concentrate on rock and roll. Elton composes ALL the melodies himself along with the arranging - everything to do with the music - and from the time he receives Bernie's lyrics, he writes the whole song in 30 minutes. He's said he's even written a song in 10 minutes. In concert, he plays the piano and sings every song. In short, he's a MUSICAL GENIUS, still composing and performing for 53 years so far.

I mean playing the piano and vocals is literally all Elton does. He does it in every. Single. Song. I don't know why Freddie Mercury is up there above Elton, (While I respect Freddie as a vocalist) he should not be up there above Elton.

13 Matt Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.

Might as well have Freddie Mercury in first or second on all of these lists. On every single one, though, I see Matt Bellamy in a way lower spot than he should be. I understand Freddie Mercury was a legend in musical history, but Matt Bellamy is just as talented. His piano skills are amazing: Listen to Feeling Good, I Belong to You, the end of the Globalist, Starlight, and Mercy. All amazing songs right there. Also, in all of his songs he sings in are beautiful because of his high range voice. Listen to the outro of Muscle Museum, Plug in Baby, and Supermassive Black Hole. You know what? I could name every Muse song and prove how talented, not just Matt, but the whole trio, too. - TheYoMama
