Mozart wrote amazingly complex pieces of music which scientists are discovering trigger the brain in seriously complex ways to promote calming and deep thoughts.

I play it in my class of ADHD students and they calm right down and can focus.

I doubt the other character is quite so accomplished. If I could even tolerate his output for more than a few seconds.

Well I knew them all by face so that must mean that they are at least well known. If their music is good or not is another thing.

There were only four I didn't know - and one I'm kicking myself for missing - so I assume those four are well known to some people at least. Just curious, who of these do you not consider famous? Or, as Jorissie said, do you think some of them don't deserve to be singled out?

Every single person on here is very famous. You understand that your personal familiarity with someone is not the measure of fame, right?

I'm not sure who you're talking to, but incase its me, then yes, I know. I'm just stating my ignorance of famous musicians' faces, that's all.

I don't see the word "famous" written anywhere on this quiz. Only "musicians". And since they all are musicians, I don't see where the problem is.

Your'e right.

Everybody arguments about if they're famous or good, but neither is required by the description.

It's just common sense that they have to be somewhat famous in order for the quiz to make sense and that they have to be somewhat good in order to be famous.

I love it. Only, I do find that it needs Beethoven, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, and Taylor Swift. Maybe throw in John Lennon or George Harrison in there, too, because I love MJ and the Beatles.

Not to be "that guy", but I tried David Jones, Reginald Dwight, and Paul Hewson, none of which worked for the appropriate picture.

This is a very fair criticism. I tried Hewson and Vox for Bono which both should be acceptable type-ins.

Atleast Zayn and Olivia sang there own songs. Jlo stole vocals from Ashanti and Christine Milan. Here entire music career is one big fraud.

Jennifer Lopez stole vocals from Ashanti and various unknown female artists, she also stole samples from other artists like brandy and usher. She is a fraud.

And Sinatra barely wrote any of his hundreds of songs, almost all covers. This doesn't suddenly make him a horrible musician because he has a great voice and made the songs his own and different from the prior versions. I'm just using this example because he's also on the quiz and considered a legend, there are others, but this is not a valid reason to call someone a fraud.

I would have guessed every woman I've ever heard of for days before I would guessed Lady Gaga for that picture. I didn't recognize Katy Perry, either, but I recognize her face now that I know who it is. But yeah, congratulations on picking the least flattering picture of Lady Gaga you could find.

So, in your opinion, either Mozart or Jimi Hendrix isn't a "good musician". Wow.

I think you have no idea just how talented almost all of these people are. Go to karaoke sometime and watch people try to sing. It's hard. Even the best amateurs are very bad compared to a professional.

I'll concede that Iggy Pop is not technically gifted and is more of an artist than a musician.

Missed 4, but it would've been 5 if not for that one guy's monogrammed necklace.
