Everyone loves music, but who do you think is the greatest musician of all time? How about the greatest female musician of all time? Whatever your criteria for the best musician, you can be sure that some random internet stranger will disagree with you. So here’s a list of people that I think put themselves forward as candidates for greatest musician of all time.
In this article, I will talk about “Greatest Musician Of All Time”. Let’s start.
Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971) was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana. Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an “inventive” trumpet and cornet player, he was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance. With his instantly-recognizable gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improvising vocalist.
Armstrong was one of the first truly popular African-American entertainers to “cross over” and successfully integrate white audiences, and was a seminal influence on many other important musicians both black and white. In the 1930s he became a global celebrity with his highly energetic stage performances and signature song “Hello Dolly”.
Bob Dylan is an American folk singer-songwriter, author and visual artist whose career has spanned more than five decades. He has been described as one of the most important figures of 20th century popular music.
Dylan’s songs have been covered by many artists and have become standards, including “Blowin’ in the Wind”, “The Times They Are a-Changin’”, “Like a Rolling Stone”, “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “Forever Young”.
He has been awarded many accolades including eleven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, an Academy Award and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. In May 2000, Dylan received the Polar Music Prize from Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf for his contributions to popular music.
Elvis Presley (1935 – 1977)
Elvis Presley was one of the most popular singers and performers of all time. He is known as the “King of Rock and Roll”, which he claimed to have invented during a 1956 interview, ushering in rock and roll music.
His musical style and sound were not immediately accepted by all audiences; his early performances in Las Vegas were generally regarded as unimpressive. However, after a few years, his popularity grew and he became one of the most successful performers of the 20th century. He continued to perform until his death at age 42 on August 16, 1977.
The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, was born on January 8th, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. His musical career started when he joined the gospel group The Blackwood Brothers in 1954. In 1955 he signed a contract with RCA Records and released his first single “That’s All Right Mama”. In 1956 he made his television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He went on to have a string of hits including “Hound Dog”, “Jailhouse Rock” and “Are You Lonesome Tonight?”
In 1960 Elvis was drafted into the army but was honorably discharged after six months due to health issues. He continued recording albums and touring throughout the 1960s until his death on August 16th 1977 at age 42.
Stevland Hardaway Judkins, known professionally as Stevie Wonder, is an American musician, singer and songwriter. A native of Saginaw, Michigan, Wonder signed with Motown’s Tamla label at the age of 11, and continues to perform and record for Motown to this day.
Wonder signed a US $50 million deal in 2002 with Universal Music Group to distribute his future recordings, including “The Definitive Collection”, a 25-disc box set which includes all of his hits and favorites. He has been blind since shortly after birth.
I love music and I love Stevie Wonder.
I grew up listening to his music, but it wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized how much of an impact he has had on the world.
I didn’t know that he was blind until I was well into my adult years and that he was actually one of the first black artists to perform at the White House for President Nixon.
I didn’t know that he had a long battle with drugs and alcohol, but still managed to produce some of the greatest songs ever recorded.
He’s one of those artists who can make you feel things you never thought you could feel when listening to music.
Jimi Hendrix was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter. Hendrix was not only a pioneer of rock music, but also a man who created his own style of playing and singing. His unique sound has influenced many musicians that followed him, including Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page.
Hendrix’s early influences were Chuck Berry, B.B. King and Muddy Waters. He played with several R&B groups before forming the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1966 with bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell. Their first album Are You Experienced?, released in 1967, featured songs like “Purple Haze” and “Foxy Lady” that became rock classics during the psychedelic era. The Experience broke up after three more albums, leaving behind an impressive body of work that included Electric Ladyland (1968).
After disbanding The Experience, Hendrix formed another group called Gypsy Sun & Rainbows Band with Buddy Miles on drums and Billy Cox on bass guitar. They released one album titled Band of Gypsys in 1971 before disbanding after only one year together due to financial problems caused by poor management decisions by Hendrix’s manager Michael Jeffery who had been stealing money from him for years!
Taylor Swift is the greatest musician of all time.
I know that’s a bold statement, but it’s true.
So much about Taylor Swift is simultaneously infuriating and inspiring, but there’s no denying that she is one of the most talented musicians in the world right now. I feel like her songs are just so relatable and they’re always on point with what’s going on in my life. Whether it’s heartbreak or falling in love or being heartbroken over someone who doesn’t love you back, she knows exactly how to write a song about it and make it sound so amazing.
She writes her own songs too! That’s so rare these days, especially in pop music. It’s pretty cool that she writes all her own material because she can really express herself through music instead of relying on other people to help make her sound better than she already does.
Prince was a musical genius who had the world in his hands. He was an outspoken advocate for freedom of speech and artistic expression, and he used his platform to stand up for others who were facing oppression.
Prince was one of the few musicians who could make you dance, laugh, cry and think all at once. He was a true artist in every sense of the word, and he will be missed by millions of fans around the world. It’s hard to believe that we lost such an amazing human being at such a young age (57).

FAQs for Greatest Musician Of All Time
Now that you understand “Greatest Musician Of All Time”, let’s move on to the FAQ section.
Who Is Considered The Greatest Musician Of All Time?
The greatest musician of all time is widely considered to be Mozart. His works have been performed for over 250 years, and he remains one of the most popular composers today.
Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria on January 27th 1756. He was the son of Leopold Mozart (an accomplished musician himself) who taught him how to play various instruments when he was very young. At age five he wrote his first composition and began studying violin with his father at age seven. By age 12 he had mastered playing the piano and violin, as well as composing music.
He began touring Europe with his father as a child prodigy, performing numerous concerts throughout their travels. A year after his death in 1791 at age 35, Mozart’s Requiem Mass was performed at St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna in honor of Emperor Joseph II’s death. His funeral was attended by thousands of mourners including Franz II himself who later ordered an official biography be written about Mozart’s life and career.
Since then many people have tried to claim that Beethoven or Bach were greater than Mozart but there is no doubt that Mozart truly deserves this title for being the greatest musician of all time!
