Thread: Most influential Individual in Music

    Most influential Individual in Music

    Who is the the most influential person in music...EVER? Now it has to be one person, so if you want to vote for a band you're going to have to narrow it down to who out of that band is the most influential.

    I'm going to have to say John Lennon. I've only heard a couple of songs from him as it's not really my style of music, but nearly all my favourite bands list him or The Beatles as their reason for getting into the business.

    I think Jimi Hendrix could well have had a huge impact on influencing guitarists as well as musicians who play any intrument.

    tom waits - may have gone a bit weird now but his earlier stuff was tremendously influential for me as a songwriter

    I'd like to think the old blues, before rock, before real emotion behind music. Guys like Son House really paved the way for musical expression, moving away from the generic, no feeling melodies, just a guy and an badly tuned guitar.

    And then that may well have sparked the whole guitar exploration (rock, metal, etc)... But like the guy said, you can trace it back to the microphone even, or to the people who invented drums.

    In terms of lyrics you can't go wrong with Morrissey, probably should be up there

    Bob Marley purely because of the way he could send out such a powerfull message yet still sing in some of the most memorable melodies.
