Many have self proclaimed themselves to be the greatest, or the King, but only a select few have had the ability to back up their claim. Michael Jackson was one of them. It didn't get any bigger than Michael Jackson at his peak and even though he has left us early, his musical accomplishments amount to more than most performers could do in a dozen lifetimes.
The guitar has been a key component in rock music since it's creation - a trend that doesn't look to be reversing itself anytime soon. When looking at the greatest musicians of the past 100 years, it is guitarists that make up a disproportionately large percentage of that group.

The Lean, the Treadmills, The Torrance Community Dance Group, Jay Kay's insane gravity defying moves - all dance elements that overshadowed the music they were promoting. Since the cringe inducing dancing in the first MTV videos (Mick Jagger?), music video choreography has certainly evolved providing us with many revolutionary moments along the way.
37 years together, 12 studio albums, a record setting 22 Grammy Awards, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and ranked 22 on Rolling Stone's list of Greatest Artists of All Time.
