Famous Musicians

The history of music has produced countless musical geniuses. These are people who changed the face of music forever. Let us take a look at some of them.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a child prodigy and a prolific composer. He started composing at the age of 5 and produced over 600 pieces of music even though he died at the very young age of thirty-five years old.

Ludwig van Beethoven was another famous composer and pianist. He like Mozart is still being played today even though it is almost 200 years after his death.

Johann Sebastian Bach was a famous composer and organist.

Louis Armstrong was an American trumpeter, composer and singer who had a huge influence on Jazz music.

George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and John Lennon made music history both together as the music group “The Beetles” and individually as well.

Jimi Hendrix is still considered by many as the greatest guitarist of all time.

David Bowie considered one of the greatest rock stars of all time.

Elvis Presley was known as the “King of Rock and Roll”.

Frank Sinatra was not only very influential as a musician but also as an actor. Most know him by his nickname as “Old Blue Eyes”.

Bob Dylan a man influential in pop music for over 5 decades.

Prince (a man who goes by only one name) deserves to be on this list too.

Of course, there are many many more you could list here. Also, their place on this list could also be debated. (This list was never meant to be complete and the artists are listed in no specific order. Please don’t infer anything from the placing of the artists, it has no bearing on how significant they were.)

Well this concludes our little informal conversation. I hope you enjoyed it or at least did not hate it.
