My own musical tastes are quite different...
Unfortunately, this was limited to the past 60 years, so I can't state J. S. Bach, G. F. Handel, or W. A. Mozart. These being the three I listen to most, although William Byrd and Giovanni de Palestrena are certainly among my favourites.
That said, I like Celtic bands: Altan, Capercallie, Deanta, Milladoro, etc.
I also like Moxy Fruvous and They Might Be Giants (more mainstream tastes, here..)
However, I would have to say that the most influential musician in the past 60 years was William Shatner. He taught us all how not to sing.

No exception for Last Christmas - I was forced to listen to it way too many times. :roll: However Mr. Michael does get an exception for his work with the remaining member of Queen in the Freddy Mercury tribute concert. I mean, it sounded like an amazingly bad idea when I heard of the plans originally, but he did an outstanding job.
And yes, Queen should probably have been somewhere on my previous list of favorites. Maybe hovering next to Zep and Floyd - sounds good.
