Which Of These Famous London Musicians Do You Know?
London is home to many famous musicians, many of whom are still around and many of whom have passed. Some have had long careers spanning decades, and others have had brief careers. There are the one hit wonders, but still you have many famous London musicians throughout the years that have made big names for themselves. Some are solo artists, and others are part of bands. Remember that we’re talking about London musicians specifically and not musicians from England in general or the UK.
You can also separate the famous London musicians into genres. For example, you can look at pop musicians from London, such as Phil Collins and David Essex. Have you heard of those two people? Who hasn’t heard of Phil Collins? What about the Spice Girls? Then there is George Michael, and those are just some of the more prominent pop musicians. Now let’s look at other music genres.
When you look at rock, things really start getting interesting, especially when you get to the rock groups. There are sometimes solo rock artists of course, but rock music is a genre full of groups of musicians. So, you have David Bowie, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, The Who, Yes and more. The list literally goes on and on.
Of course, you can’t forget Pink Floyd. And then when looking at other genres, you get the Sex Pistols, Billy Idol, Iron Maiden, White Lies, Led Zeppelin, Amy Winehouse, Seal and more. Do you have a favourite era of music that you like more than others? For me, it’s the 1990’s, but I’m from the US. Classic rock is always good, too, and that’s definitely a strong point in the UK as you can see. They have less R&B and Dance musicians and more rock groups and alternative rock and pop musicians.
