    Yeeeeah, this is an impossible question to answer. There are so many different ways to categorise a great musician. You can be a great songwriter and instrumentalist, but not a vocalist, or the greatest vocalist of all time but have no real musical brain. Not really much point to this question, but I'll play along anyway and say Frank Zappa as being the best all around musician of all time. Distinctive and memorable vocalist, one of the greatest guitarists of his generation and far and away the most prolific writer of music of all time. Over 60 career albums to his name, as well as writing classical symphonies performed around the world, produced and directed music videos, even designed his own album covers. Truly the greatest example of genuine musical genius.

    It's also partly because of him that people can still say whatever they want in their music, as he was the leading force against the PMRC, who tried to force through music censorship laws. Mr. Zappa testified in front of the United States senate in opposition of this, and was a major contributing factor in the eventual conclusion of the case. So everyone from death metal bands to rappers owe him a great debt.

    But I would also give much love to whoever it was above me that said Springsteen. Gotta love the Boss.
