A working man's musician and incredible lyrics and melodies, how he is not number one I do not know. In each song he fits the message that everyone else can only fit into an album. Bruce is the best.

Bob dylan then bruce end of story.

HOW is Bruce ranked so low? He connects with the human condition unlike anyone else, all in perfect poetry.

Really? REALLY?!?

Anthony Kiedis and John Frusciante... Enough said

The best.

His lyrics floats, so that it creats a sense of positive energy, no tight meaning sometimes but still universal. Like a complicated philsosophy turned into a slimpler than poem form. He sure knows what he is saying, he reads, because I see some themes he uses that I know eg parallel univers, a scifi theme and discovery. Sometimes He uses headings, Name dropping, that one could spend a life time to research about or should have to go read about. As a song needs to be compressed. My name is ehys from Nigeria. Lordgx300@yahoo.com is my email.

Why the hell is he there. he should be in the top ten. he has wrote the best songs in history. don't get me wrong his old stuff werent that good but when it got to blood sugar sex magik his writing got a hell of a lot better.most of his songs have meanings and some of the songs are based on the same story. its like he wants to tell us a story by singing. this list is shocking and who ever made it needs to rethink. anthony kiedis is the absolute best
