The best musicians in history, created with the help of a simple point system.


For quite a while, this list of grandmasters consisted of just three musicians (Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, and Burning Spear); I was only surprised that the later entrants, Salif Keita and Letta Mbulu beat mighty Bob, and that was based on just my thinking without actually making a list of tracks. Intuition isn't always reliable.
