Johnny Bee...Short story...I went to see 10cc in the early 70's but they were opening for Rory Gallagher, I heard of him but at the time I never heard his music, 10cc was (and still is) a band I love...anyway 10cc did their set, and when Rory was introduced, and started to play I forgot about 10cc...I ended buying every album he made and am a big fan of his..he was fantastic!!

Constant would probably be the Rolling Stones. Keith's guitar riffs are stamped all over my guitar style, there's no question but other artists would be:

The Who
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Bob Dylan
Neil Young(solo or with Crazy Horse)
Paul Westerberg(solo or with the Replacements)
Black Sabbath
Deep Purple(mkII/70-73)
Black Crowes(92-97 and '05/06)
Blue Oyster Cult
The Clash
Frank Zappa
and...The Beatles

Hank Williams Sr. remains my #1 choice ever snce I heard him when I was a small boy. Now at the age of 69 he's still on top. Such passion and soul in his songs,and his delivery was always tops. The Driftin Cowboys band was straight up country, with a great steel guitar!

Stratocaster says:
Not sure I completely understood the context of the question at hand, but since we're limited to 5, I'll just name the ones who are STILL producing some new music within the last few years (after 35+ years of performing):

Jackson Browne: Time the Conqueror
His latest album on new material is now about 4 years old, and it ain't no "Late For The Sky". But hey, it's Jackson, and it's some pretty good stuff here and there.

Mark Knopfler: Privateering

IMO, some of his more recent stuff is starting to sound a bit redundant. But, as one of my all time song writer and guitar heroes, Mark is still #1 in my book of long time favorites

David Gilmour: On An Island

His latest effort is now 7 years old. Don't know if he plans on doing any more. Many people have torn down this effort by Gilmour pretty badly. Yes, taken in context with the rest of the Gilmour/Pink Floyd catalogue, this is no superstar. But at least he made an effort. And put it in the context of the rest of today's general music inventory, and this is still a pretty good album.

Neil Young: Psychedelic Pill
I don't think Neil will stop until they throw the first shovelful of dirt on his casket! Is he still putting out classic gems like "After the Goldrush" or "Harvest"? Hell no. But again, still pretty good effort on it's own. I give him cred just for still having some decent musical ideas after over 45 years!!

Yes: Fly From Here

Yes in 2012? Unbelievable. I know the argument that this is not really Yes w/o Jon Anderson. And to much of an extent, I agree. But Yes has always had many incarnations. And although this is not the classic sounding Yes of the seventies, it still a decent release.

Steve Hackett: Beyond the Shrouded Horizon

Now here's the one exception to the rule. As the original guitar player from early Genesis (circa 1970), and producer of 24 solo albums ever since, even at 63 yrs old, this guy just keeps getting better and better IMHO! He's done 3 new CDs and 2 concert DVDs in just the last 2 years alone! He can't be stopped......and I don't want him to! As another one of my original inspirations on guitar, I wish him Godspeed and all the best the world has to offer. And for any old time Prog fans out there - if his 2011 "Beyond The Shrouded Horizon" is not in your collection yet....what are you waiting for? Destined to become another Prog classic on it's own, it is one wild musical ride!!

This is a no brainer for me. Years listed are when I first heard them (I was 12 in '72):

Bob Dylan (1972)
Steely Dan (1972)
Genesis (1975)
Tom Waits (1975)
Tommy Bolin (1976)

The Replacements (and Westerberg solo), Oingo Boingo, Porcupine Tree, and Drive-By Truckers have since joined my top 9, with Opeth on the bubble

All others are on a lower tier. Except The Beatles, of course, who are on a higher plane than anyone else

Easy (in no particular order)

The Kinks
The Moody Blues
The Who
Lea Salonga (sings up a storm and is stone gorgeous)

I suspect that for most of us The Beatles being in there somewhere goes without saying.

It's too bad there isn't some sort of tool that can sift through threads like these and collate the results. Would be interesting as there seems to be a wide range of tastes here.
