1. The Beatles, without hesitation or doubt.
2. The original Alice Cooper group.
3. Donovan (believe it or not, I've purchased his "Greatest Hits" four times: LP first, then 8-track, then cassette, now CD).

雅-miyavi- Since his debut with Dué le Quartz in 1999 to the beginning of his solo career in 2002 to present. He is probably one of the best understated musicians. Not because I'm a fan, but because he's multi-talented. All his indies albums were done 100% solo, he did all the drum work, guitars, vocals, etc. The man can play guitar, sing and play the Gigpig at the same time. His personality is out of this world and beyond... he adores his fans and never forgets to remind them of it. He's crazy, silly, full of energy, he's like a puppy on too much sugar... he's absolutely fantastic.

I have never once been disappointed by anything he's done... from his rock, to his metal, to his pop, to his bluesy sound.. 雅-miyavi- isn't even in a genre, because he lives outside of the box. He does what he likes without limitation... he's an absolute star. His fans just aren't fans, they're his family. ^__^

Jackson Browne.
Throughout the years the man has stayed true to his craft, his integrity, beliefs, and has never sold out or went through any "fad stage" (OK, maybe for the exception of his 80's "skinny tie" phase) that most musicians and artists go through in order to stay relevant or sell to records. And unlike many of his peers who still sing the same old hits charging outrageous ticket prices, Browne still writes songs and continues to perform for benefits and other humanitarian causes.

Here is my official "I'm a dork" list--

Eva Cassidy, any of her CDs
BoDeans
Sarah McLachlan, Fumbling Towards Ecstacy
Ella Fitzgerald, Christmas album
Hmm, tie for 5th
The Police
Amanda Marshall

Although they're newer, I'm sure Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are longlifers.

Yes, this list probably only pleases me but whatever floats my boat, right?

Oh, thank you! My hubby is convinced it's by Meatloaf no matter how much proof I show him.

Ozzy Osbourne
Superbus
David Bowie
JoJo (slightly embarrassed to admit this one, but the girl has got a voice!)
Frank Sinatra

It's difficult though since I listen to just about everything. But I stand by my picks.

I like JoJo as well.

Psych fan says:
Ah! My all time favorite since buying the double album "Hot Rocks" in 1980. I literally wore the album out, playing it constantly. Later on I acquired most of their records, stopping only after "Tattoo You". Saw them in concert on their "Bridges to Babylon" tour....it was amazing....

Depeche Mode is probably the only one that entered my Top 5 soon after hearing them and has remained there ever since. Erasure was there for longer, but have faded much more into the background as of late.

Only other artist to enter my Top 5 and not leave after first being exposed to their music is Gary Numan/Tubeway Army. Holding strong in the #2 spot right now.

John Prine has consistently put out music that I love over the past 40 or so years I've been into music. I've always loved Led Zep, The Who, and Jethro Tull, but they're not still putting it out there. Eric Clapton, the early years--Cream, Derek

Over my many years of being a music lover a lot of artists have gone in and out of my top five, the one and only constant: BOB DYLAN! other regular players: Van Morrison, Rickie Lee Jones, Leonard Cohen, Greg Brown.
