28. Elton John
Sir Elton John is one of the few artists that I've learned from my parents. They used to listen to Elton John a lot when I was a kid in the mid 90's. And of course there was Lion King, ha ha.
Years later I dug in his earlier records and found some true gems, like the classic Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which is my favourite of them all. And his latest work are not left in the shadows of early classics. For example when I last saw Elton John live, Home Again fit very well there among all the Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting and Candle in the Wind classics.
One of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time, period.
Personal highlight: Believe (from the album Made In England)
