Best American Band/Musician?

#1
Ah, I love a good sh!t-slinging contest.

Even the most diehard anti-septic :-D might concede that America's best cultural contributions have come through music (Motown, college bands, etc). I'm wondering who you think the best American band or solo musician was/is.

I'd have to go with my man, the patron saint of "music to shag by"...Marvin Gaye.

Bruce Springsteen.
 
#3
Bing Crosby, and his mates - Stills and Nash.... (shurely shum mistake...)

It's easy. Buddy holly, he started it all

If not The Ramones.

But lets be honest thats all the american music industry has going for it. Apart from them 2 what yank has actually started a musical genre.

And you cant have blues. Thats to cool to be counted
