Bruce would easily be my #1 choice from your list, a top 5 artist for me. I am also a big fan of Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell. I like some of Johnny Winter's stuff but wouldn't call myself a big fan. The rest I don't really like at all.

The biggest one's that I like that aren't on your list:
Neil Young (my #1 artist), Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, David Bowie, Beck, Elvis Costello, and Steve Earle.

lSmith, Jett, Idol, Mitchell and Winter would not make my list.

I like Cohen but don't know enough of his stuff for him to make my list.

Absolutely agree with Zevon, Lauper and Lennox they are all great.


(not in any order)
Bob Dylan
Van Morrison
Marvin Gaye
Cindi Lauper
Donovan
Arlo Guthrie
Elton John
Annie Lennox
Warren Zevon
Bruce Springsteen

I would have put Joe Walsh and Dave Mason on the list but since they spent alot of time in bands I left them off. Though I prefer both as solo acts
