13 Greatest Musicians of All Time

Music is the one thing in the world that, no matter what is going on, people can always turn to. Behind the music is ordinary people, like you and me, with extraordinary talent. That being said, this listicle attempts to rank the 13 greatest musicians of all-time.

#1 Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, is one of those names that everyone knows, regardless if you can name one of his songs or not. Elvis is arguably the largest music icon we have ever seen, or will ever see, and for good reason.

#4 Prince

Few musicians can be described by a color, but Prince practically owned the color purple. What made Prince incredible was his pure passion for music. He dedicated his entire life to the art, and his passion can always be heard in his music.

#9 Ray Charles

Although he lost his sight at 7, Charles didn't let this hold him back. All it takes is love for the art to be a successful musician, and luckily Ray had more than enough love for music. Ray Charles exemplifies why music can be so important.

Buddy Holly is one of the original, great songwriters music has ever seen. Not only was he great at writing music, he was arguably an even more impressive guitarist. Buddy is a pioneer in the music industry, and will always be considered one of best to ever do it.

#12 Tom Petty

Although I may be biased, as Tom Petty is my favorite musician ever, it is hard to argue against his candidacy for this list. The recently deceased Tom Petty was one of the best when it came to making pure hits. Almost every knows a Tom Petty song, and it is because of his ability to write and execute his music. Like most rock stars from the 70's and 80's, Tom was an extremely free spirit, with a beautiful soul, and he passed much too soon.
