Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Pink Floyd, B.B. King, Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, The Beatles, Sex Pistols, James Brown, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Nirvana, The Who, Public Enemy, and Frank Zappa.
Yes. Fine musicians. Plus they make up a list called “Klink Anders”, which quite literally translates to “Sound Different”.
