    Who is the greatest musician alive today?

    This is bound to divide opinion as there are so many musical styles around, i'm a real gutar fan so my vote goes for Eric Clapton who has continued to create incredible music consistently for the last 40 years or so. Who do you think?

    Mark Knoppfler.  Eric Clapton is fine, when he plays blues; however, his popy and tearjerker sttuff lets him down.

      I have to admit that there is a fair amount of middle of the road stuff, but anyone would struggle to maintain 'sitting on top of the world' standards for 40 years. Mark knoppfler is one of the greats for sure.

    Prince. Hands down. Nobody has had the Impact on pop music he has had the last thirty years.

    I would have to agree with one of the other commenters. Prince should be considered one of the greatest musician's alive. He has shown over the years he is mulit talented with a very unique style of his own. My favorite display of his prowess is "Doves Cry" and "Purple Rain".
