Who is the greatest/best Canadian musician of all time?

I'm curious who people rate most highly in terms of Canadian musicians.

It could be a group, or an individual or you can make two choices one for groups one for individuals.


If you think it's relevant (I'm undecided if it is or isn't) you can also state your nationality...

EDIT TO ADD: This person wouldn't be my top band/musician because it wouldn't be fair to the bands that I listen to way more frequently...but top Honorable Mention for me would be Oscar Petersen. He's just pure genius!

Gotta be either Leonard Cohen or Joni Mitchell.

And I'm Canadian.

My favorite off the top of my head is Sarah McLachlan. (My cousin's husband in Vancouver has done some sound work for her.)

I'm American-born, but half-Canadian.

I'm not a fan but Rush deserves mention.

OK, Neil Young is awesome. He's got a bigger catalog of great songs than Sarah. And a more important place in music history.

Easy .... Matthew Good.


EDIT: I am American, but I have had some major make-out sessions with a few canadian girls.

Seriously question, why are Candian girls so much more prolific with the tongue?

I would have to say Stan Rogers. The man was incredible. It's too bad that he passed away so young, I always wonder what other musical gems he would've created.

Wow, someone who knows Stan Rogers and who is not my father...

You are right, it was a great loss when he died.

My favourite song by him would be either Northwest Passage or The Idiot
