  5. Of course,
    1. Bob Dylan. Whether you like him or not, his influence on 20th century music is undeniable.

    2. Prince. genius producer, writer, performer. If you haven’t heard his late night club shows, you should. Some of the best guitar licks since, dare I say it, Jimi.

    3. Atmosphere. may be a long shot, but truth-telling through hip-hop at its best.

  10. It’s still on my bucket list to see a major show at Madison Square Garden. I’ve been to some of the major venues here in America and I have high hopes for getting over to the UK for some of the bigger festivals, but I’d hate to say I never made it to MSG.
