To say the likes of Michael Jackson and Britney (that's with one t) Spears are not influential is to be an idiot.

[color=royal blue]1. I think Michael Jackson has been extremely influential. I wasn't really conscious at the time he was really big, but.......still.

2. INFLUENTIAL:
U2 (NAAW)
Broooooooce
Van Morrison
The Smiths / Moz
Rolling Stones
Beatles (whom I don't really like, but I've heard they're big...)
Led Zeppelin..
GnR
Elton John
Smashing Pumpkins
Alanis Morrissette (seriously)

more I can't think of...

3. NOT INFLUENTIAL:
I don't waste my time knowing their names...

Yes, I think a distinction needs to be drawn between 'influential' and 'good'. Frankly, a lot of very bad music has been very influential, and vice versa. I'm not sure that many of the bands or singers I follow are very influential at all, and at this late stage I don't really care. I suppose they influence me, but that's a different story altogether.

Michael Jackson, unfortunately, was indeed influential. He single-handedly launched the tradition of absurd million-dollar movie length 'music videos', possibly the great curse of our age. In fact I will go out on a limb here and say that I consider Jacko to be one of the leading influences on Limp Bizkit. Where else did they get that schtick of theirs? I'm sorry boys, but you just can't really be 'badass' and angry when you're standing on top of a skyscraper with dancing girls or driving a mercedes. Ah, it's like shooting fish in a barrel, really. At least they realise they are shite.

Rule One in my book - if your video is longer than your song, you have a problem.

I think the original post did say that it was about the artists who inspire and influence -you- rather than the other artists.

Michael Jackson is a genius. Savant perhaps, but the man is an absolute freak when it comes to performing.

This is not my answer however. I do not wish to be like him in anyway.

To fail to read the original question before responding is also to be an idiot.

Question: what artists are most influential to you personally.

I can honestly say that Britney Spears falls in the category of "least influential" for me personally, regardless of her effect on society.

David Cassady was pretty uninfluential. I'd say he and Davy Jones are at a tie.

oh
MORE MORE MORE!

jeff buckley and the joy division as the most influential

but also the fact that their reign was short lived

still they left their mark as if they never left

Joy Division for their pure energy and post punk revolution

and Jeff Buckley's incredulous voice and guitar work

William Shatner. Yup, the Cap'n cut an album many galaxies ago. It consisted of covers by such artists as The Beatles and Elton John. Imagine James T. singing Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. Oh yeah, The New Kids kind of sucked. So did MC Hammer. Vanilla Ice too.

not resulting in quality products but definetely resulting in product
Her producer is more influential than her, if you track it down to the musical components of her success.
