    I'm not much for hero-worship but if I have to, it's Bruce, hands down. The music and the man. As a music critic wrote about 40 years ago "I have seen the future of rock and roll, and his name is Bruce Springsteen". That statement was prophetic; I love that guy both as a musician/songwriter and as a human being. If you ever read this, Bruce, Nick from Omaha says Hi. I welcome any and all opinions, those who agree and those who don't. And why. My reasons are too many to name, at present.

    So many greats that everybody can have an opinion.

    So many greats.
    Buddy Holly
    Les Paul
    The Beatles (all of them)
    Mick Jagger
    The Two Tones
    Neil Young
    Peter Tosh
    David Bowie
    James Brown
    The Byrds.....

    And I have not even listed any of the women yet.
    Like:
    Grace Slick
    Ruth Brown
    Madonna....

    The list gets too long too fast.
    There were also a lot of one hit wonders who had a great influence.
    All greats, all of them changed music.

    There are quite a few artists where I really like what they do for humanity (when they aren't performing) and I respect them a lot, but I really don't like their music much. Bruce Springsteen is one of those. Paul Simon is another. I may not like their music but I'm glad they exist.

    I'm thankful to be born so that I can enjoy ALL the music that is being made by the multitudes of musicians that have been making music since it first started many centuries ago. They all have contributed to the many different styles and genera that we enjoy and I thank all of them.

    This thread would live, still, if there were more working-class types here. Your sampling is off the mark. Not your fault, ours.
