  1. 0. Jimi Hendrix |(should be on top tbh.)

  2. :( Jimi Hendrix does enter on this 1966 - 1970 it should be the last 41 years :\

  3. Well, as much as I love Frusciante, when you got Bellamy and Prince on the list, you know it's pretty fuckin subjective.
    But regardless of who's in there, he definitly deserves #1
