Pretty self-explanatory title. Write about your idols in the musical world!

I'll start.

My idol has to be Björk, who I've listened to ever since I was very little (my mum used to play her music whilst she was pregnant with me :tongue:).



I love her unique voice, her unique style and just her inventiveness.
Her songs are always put me in a really good mood.


And she has the best award acceptance speeches ever.
'I am grateful, grapefruit!'

Post your own below.

I don't have any idols (duh!), but Trent Reznor is my biggest admiration. In my opinion he's one of the most brilliant musicians/soudscape painters!

Frank Zappa! I could never advocate this man enough.

He perfected sarcasm and satires to the highest degree.

He was rational, cynical, intelligent, aware, hard-working and an exceptionally talented guitar player.

Rock-based orchestrated compositions with satirical lyrics? What more could one ask for.

I genuinely admire him.

I have no "idols", per se. However, I had a lot of respect for Michael Larsen. One of the greatest rappers to ever live in my opinion, as well as a fellow INTJ.

I have people I respect... But I can't exactly call them idols.

Jónsi from Sigur Rós

Amanda Palmer

Miyavi, Japanese guitarist and singer. Just watch the video. He actually plays like that at all times.

This band. For the music. It's awesome.

You beat me to it.

I can't really describe how is music makes me feel, but both Sigur Rós's music and his solo work has just so full of hope and emotion and I just couldn't love it more. :3

I already loved him on Sigur Rós, but his solo is breathtaking.

When I saw this the first time my eyes were filled with tears. It's too powerful.

I'm not a big fan of having "idols", but Bob Dylan has inspired me a lot. He seems to have stayed pretty true to himself his whole life, doing whatever he likes. All the while keeping a relatively objective and light-hearted approach to life, and being open to new ideas and experiences.

And, of course, I dig his aesthetic taste.

The video is a little out of sync sadly, and I like the album version better, but yeah. One of my favorite songs of his.
