Paul, Eric, Willie, Van, Townsend ......  There are still some great ones, but they are really old.  Sadly, there are no giants in the wings to take their place.

I'd add Leonard Cohen to the list.  He isn't all over the radio but he's been one of the most prolific songwriters and artists of our generation.  And one of my favorites.

Depends on one's definition of greatness, and maybe what genre, I suppose.  Springsteen, Fogerty, Leon Russell, Beck, Ella Fitzgerald, Elton John, David Gilmour, Page, Stevie Wonder, Buddy Guy??  Lots of great ones left and I've only scratched the surface.  As far as giants waiting in the wings, I can't think of any at the moment but there must be a few out there no?

If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

Well, what better than to use my 10K post to say, "How can you forget the master?" Bob Dylan is alive and well, approaching his 75th birthday, and still making great music.

I was wondering when we would hear from you.  Of course, I am partial to the "so-cal" sound of the 60's, and I am living in close proximity to Crosby, Hillman and Browne.  Of course, they live on top of the hill, and I live down in the flatland.  In fact, I have run into Hillman when we pickup guitars from our tech.  John Jorgenson has played one of my Larrivees .... Gave it a big thumbs up.

     Jackson Browne for sure.  Neil Young and  Robbie Robertson as well.

Sure but "the greatest artist still alive" might just rule out Adele, Taylor and Miley. Or, at least, should for the time being.

If you are going there we need to include Stevie Nicks for sure...  Personally, I think the other three will make the list too...

I would add Gordon Lightfoot, Bruce Cockburn, John Prine, Leo Kottke and Arlo Guthrie to that list of artists who I saw in my youth and who are still performing and who have ollectively left us with a great body of work.
