Who has contributed the most to music ?

Was having a shower today and i thought which artist made modern day music possible, of course there was so many inspirational artists but who has moulded music the most ?

Bob Dylan : the 1st sing songer writer ? people were writing songs in admiration of this man years before he was born and even to this day people write music inspired by this man.

Elvis : 1st rock star ?, this man single handed created the whole rock star persona with his leathers and guitars.

ABBA : i believe they created the whole pop music scene , they were a boy girl band but with a edge , they also made cheesy dance music mainstream and even to this day artists from all genre's are inspired by them.

Led zeppelin: Some say these were the 1st hard rock band and sent the trend for the nezt 20 years with hard driven drums , bass and guitar with soaring vocals.

The beatles : led zeppelin may have created the 1st hard rock band but these made pop/rock and have inspired almost every band from their on , not a fan personally but the chemistry between paul and lennon became the envy fo the music world and still is.

---------------

feel free to discuss and add your own to the list , im all out.

Not a musician, but he discovered and nurtured some exceptional artists.

I'm glad someone mentioned them. The Shadows seem to be often overlooked, but they were pretty damn important and Hank Marvin did some really innovative stuff on the guitar. According to Wikipedia:

The Shadows inspired guitarists like Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Brian May, George Harrison, Mark Knopfler, Neil Young and Pete Townshend and are therefore considered to be Britain's most influential band before the era of The Beatles.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Probably the bloke in the cave who found that after spilling hot stuff on himself and screaming he had some use for his vocal chords.

Heyooooooooooo!!!!11!!



Classical composers (yes, I realize this is insanely vague). Seriously, most all modern music still is based off of the same general structure originated by these composers.
